Road Closed.

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks for your great response to my silly Sunday indulgence featuring fellow epz tog, Colin Allen, very much appreciated.Smile

Today's images feature a vintage car being driven by a man who wasn't aware that the road he was driving into is actually closed at weekends. The lead image was taken while he was doing a six point turn, which some people found most entertaining, including myself.Smile
The rest of the set shows the car about to enter the road and then driving away after the turn.

All the best to all and have a good, possibly dry, day.

Excellent set John

But the car has strange powers ...

In the lead his passenger is a woman. In v4 she's turned into a bloke!

Think I'll take the bus Grin

The magnetic effect of the open car...

But what is it? C-plate, so around 1986 manufacture: and a weird combination of ancient and modern that makes me think it's a kit car of some sort. The position of the windscreen wiper motor worries me, directly in line with the passenger's head. Why?

Great set of images that captures the fun his is having.
I think John is right, I would go with a kit car.

This appears to be one of several kit cars based on the Citroen 2CV, If someone in Pomgolia searches the DVLA web site the number plate would reveal all, well, some info.
And to get some info on what is needed to have this vehicle on the road check the web page

Not for the easily dissuaded.
I liked this, I am a petrol headGrin

Really like the way you have captured the occupants obvious enjoyment of what must have been an embarrassing situation, John, wonder if the same applies if it had been heavy rain ??Grin

2CV would explain the wheels, and also the cylinder heads of a twin-cylinder aircooled engine sticking out of the side of the bonnet...
