Kensington residents have begun asking classic car owners to remove their “ghastly cars” as only “expensive, high performance cars” will do
Kensington used to be a genteel place but now, it seems, residents want something different.
Our Picture of the Week, taken by reader Gavriel Merkardo, shows an image of a notice placed on a Reliant Scimitar parked on Kensington Church Walk in W8. It reads:
“IMPORTANT NOTICE: Could the owner of this ghastly car, please remove it from our road. It is an eyesore. We only like expensive high performance cars in this area. Thank you for your kind co-operation. The neighbours of Kensington Church Walk”.
Whatever will they demand next? A ban on Sloanes and people named Drummond, Tory and Poppy?

I think this article may well wind me up….. !!
I am not surprised. It might actually just be a joke however.
It better be. Otherwise who the hell do these people think they are ….. !?
great joke though
Hopefully a joke, but I’m worried now that my Rolls is too old to pass muster
It’s possible the note author moved to Kensington from Richmond. Our neighbours there pushed our car (filthy, but fairly new) into the road. The car was parked, in a parking space, at least 100 ft away, but opposite their sitting room windows. They then reported the car as being abandoned in the road and it was towed away (seriously). Took us several weeks to find and hefty charges to recover. Needless to say, we moved.
Pretty sure it’s a joke. It cracked me up this morning!
Would they like my 1961 VW 6 volt Beetle? It has a 1600 cc twin port van engine in it, with Weber twin carbs. Usually called Porsche.
The phrasing suggests Peter Wayde’s responsible!
