Cracking shots of a nice car Dave. Not a GTi, so what model is it? Only one I can think of is the Match, but that wasn't a cabrio as I remember!

Annoying me now!!! :cry:

I really must be getting old! Clipper it is, indeed - didn't some/all of them come with the wee sailing ship logo on the boot lid? Or is my fevered mind just making that up?

Rivage is still making no impact though, I'm sorry to say. Google beckons . . . .

Volunteer here, Spotted the Suzuki Vitara in Tarbrax, South Lanarkshire. Tarbrax was a Shale Mining Village in the last century. The Shale Works closed leaving the population without any work. There is only one road in and the same road gets you out.

There is also Bowling Green with two lanes only. The Club House is a shed smaller than a standard garage. Visit away from Glasgow section to see pics.

Spooky, the Vitara Vehicle Registration is one before my old Suzuki Wagon R+. Front plate is just dirty and reads 680.

I ran the Suzuki for over four years before trading it in for another Wagon. Then another and another and another, five all in.

With the coincidence of seeing the Vitara I rushed out and bought a Lottery Ticket. Did I win? No I didn't.

Been reading on here for quite a while now, never posted. This thread is massive so without going all the way back, spotted this today and got a quick snap with the phone before the lights went green.
