Lovely, where did you get your foxes from ? Is it true with regard to hedgehogs baked in clay.
The foxes get through a 6” hole in the fence, it’s surprising how small a gap they can get through.

No idea about the clay, there’s one of those fluffy, bum in the air Shitsue dogs down the road. I could try it on that and report back.

Another new one on me. Very similar design cue to the LC but nothing like as dramatic. still got the magnificent V8 but somehow more mainstream.
The RCF might be the Audi TT to the LC's R8 ?
Looks like a great daily to me with Lexus reliability.

hmmm £33-67k is bit rich for daily driver. Check the url above. Daily driver QP or GTS has infinitely more appeal. to me. Budget for 10k off the purchase price to pay for the fuel :D

Daily driver for business is okay.
Could never run a QP or GTS for business miles 20K a year.

NSU RO80 another blast from my childhood and my father forever having different cars around.

Indeed, my second car was an NSU (which I understood to mean No S0ddin Use) until I saw this, the RO80.

Steve Thompson Racing of Walsall was the Audi NSU Mercedes dealer in the 70s, together with the then exotic and very pretty BMW's, oh so pretty.

I can't confess to ownership of an RO80, but the humble 2 cylinder 600, otherwise known as 'The Dustbin Lid'. The only car I have owned which had the perverse 'fail safe' of if the the throttle cable broke, it failed full open. Oh and a sack o' taters in the boot (front).

The Ro80 was a ground breaking machine of its time, even more so given the origins of the company at the time and a very brave company. One did have to be exceptionally brave oneself. Later the Patent was purchased by Mazda, when ceramic tips became viable, and did experience a RX7. Foooooffff

This example must be very rare, whoever has renovated it has done an exemplary empathetic job. This is a '71 K reg

My father who was all his life a motor engineer was very impressed with it and he had many interesting cars back then living in the Midlands too.
Later he bought one of the first RX7's brand new and again at the time that was an impressive car too.

Clearly Jam. You can get good coverage before splodging the clotted cream on.
Heathen!

We used to stay at a B&B near Bude. Proper working farm that was mentioned in the Doomsday Book. Mr and Mrs Gill, I reckon they were in their 60s when I was little. One was from Devon and one from Cornwall. When they got married one of their families (can’t remember which one) said theyd disown them if they married someone from across the border, that was that and they basically never spoke to them again.
