Asda and Sainsbury's have cut petrol and diesel prices for the second time in just over a week .
Asda took the lead by trimming diesel by 4p a litre and petrol by 3p.
From today customers filling up at any of Asda's 322 UK fuel stations will pay no more than 124.7p for a litre of diesel and 123.7p for unleaded petrol.
Sainsbury's is cutting diesel by up to 4p a litre and unleaded by up to 3p a litre. These reductions will come into force from Saturday.

I popped down to Rhos Promenade this morning for the Cars and Coffee meeting and it really was worth going to see.     The weather was good for starters but the place was very busy and there was an excellent display of vehicles there ranging from the very old to the modern day.
There was a yellow Noble car there and it's the first one I had ever seen one, but I doubt if I could get in one let alone get out of it but still nice to look at

I hope that it wasn't the brown American car in your 3rd photo DVT

Definitely not that one, but I suspect the owner loves it!  You may need to zoom in on one of my pics to find my car - it's a white one!

Definitely a huge variety of interesting cars attended - I think if I have chosen one to take home it would have been the McLaren which didn't stay long so you might not have seen it.

i can't tell which one is yours DVT  but the second one from the right must belong to a boy racer

I didn't see the McLaren unfortunately,  but I did like the Noble car though.   It was a really good turn out on the day

Ha! Ha! Mine is the next white one - the reg'n gives it away.  The Mitsubishi is Dave Paveley's rally car, definitely a boy racer!  The black Subaru is his daughter Jade's (she is current Welsh Junior Rally Champion).  The "mallard green" Escort Cosworth is for sale if you have some spare cash!

I was told by more than one person that the Noble is based on a Ford Mondeo - the rear lights are from a Mondeo!

The early Noble cars were powered by Ford Duratec engines, probably as a way to save money as they tried to establish the brand. I think they later moved to Judd V8 engines.

I managed a short visit to the display today, and met Mr and Mrs Merddin Emrys, and their fabulous cars, nice to finally meet up, it was good to see a lot of the owners by their cars, ready to answer questions, similar to the Three Castles prom display, some shows are just glorified car parks, this was very enjoyable, and no rain, lucky for the open topped owners.
