I have to remark that a few years ago I was told that at an apartment complex in Hollywood an old lady still drove a mint original 55 chevy 2dr 150 sedan. I went to look at it and there it was, a gorgeous unmolested 55 150 ! Another time some 5 years ago here comes a white 65 Chevy Impala 2dr passing me going in the opposite direction with a little old lady at the wheel,effing MINT it was. I did a quick U turn but got caught at a red light and lost her. NEVER saw those cars again. What have you seen ?

Absolute truth Bob. I went back the next day and the chevy was gone.I told my friend who lived close by to keep an eye out for it but he never saw it again either. I had no camera with me at the time I saw it.

Funny you should mention that Steve.It was NOT an urban myth because Alphabet Alex actually DELIVERED that car to the lady while he was assistant service manager at Jack Barclays way back then. He actually came round my house with that car on his way to deliver it,sadly I was not at home. Gods truth,you can ask him.

In the late 70's there used to be a Mrs Marple lookalike dressed in a tweed two piece suit driving a Aston Martin DBS6 around the Colchester area.

I saw it just the once Mike heading out on the M4 towards Windsor. Was looking a bit scruffy but that added to the impact!

There's an ol girl round here and she drives a mint mk2 Granada 2.8i, One day i saw it in the petrol garage where i was filling up and popped over to have a look at it and i noticed it was a MANUAL!
The ol girl must be in her 80's
Good on her!
