While on the phone this afternoon I happened to glanced out the window just as a small van pull-up outside. Trying to see who it might be I notice the male driver instructing his fellow female passenger how he wanted photographs taken of my car. After a few minutes of click, click, click they drove off.

At that point many questions went through my mind, one are they coming back to nick it! Or did they love it so much they had to take pictures as a reminder to show what a beauty they had just seen??? Like to thinks it's that one.

This is the growing trend apparently! putting cars up for sale that are not actually for sale
You will probably be ok but some unlucky sole may be parting with a deposit! you should report it to the Police especially if you have a Registration number! unless that sort of thing is normal round your way

Rule number 1 when glancing outside & people are taking pictures of your prized car...

Go outside & say, 'Any reason why your taking photos of my car???'

Well worth telling the police, just in case you have any problems later. Hope not though.

Also if you post the colour and last numbers of your reg on the forum, we can keep an eye out for dodgy ads, etc.

Thanks, very helpful advise.

If I hadn't of been on a call to a customer in the states I would of run down stairs and confronted them. At the time I was totally surprised by their actions and somewhat shocked. As they drove off rather quickly and from my position it was difficult to see their reg no.

Anyway if anyone see a yellow plus reg ending in KK it's my one. And it's not up for sale.

Little bit harsh surely - I've had this in supermarket car parks, just people enjoying seeing a rare classic!

In my minds eye it was Sprint Blue? Until you said Yellow Plus!

Sprint was in the garage while the yellow plus was on my drive.

Must check my garage to see if it's still there!

Some lads took photos of my coupe outside Halfords. I never gave it a second thought. It was not nicked so they must have just liked the look of it.
