Saw one of these last week in France. Butt ugly but I did look to see what it was, in black and would certainly turn heads (mostly towards the sick bag) in this country.

Well it's rare isn't it??(as no fccuker would buy one).


Up yours Photobucket.

Not a rare car as such but a car in rare condition:-

Went to view a property a couple of weeks back, the owner showed me his original morris traveller with less than 500 miles since new! Really strange to see such an old car looking like it had just walked out the showroom.

Overtook one of these a couple of weeks back. Have only just been able to scrape my jaw from the floor. Amazing.

There's a Harley Davidson pickup truck near my work with big shiny, chromed wheels. And yes, it is every inch as bad as you'd expect a Harley pickup with shiny wheels to be

Saw an Ariel Atom in convoy with a TVR on the M42 yesterday, driver of the Atom was wearing a skeleton mask as face protection. Funniest thing I've seen all week - assuming of course it was a mask and he'd not been going so fast his skin had come off

I really like them, got a trip over to Luton Airport to pick up friends on Sunday, always see one parked up in Luton on the way

While doing the M25 thing daily ended up seeing most things: F1, 3 x SLR, Ford GT, Viper GTS, etc

But back on the local commute for a bit - and saw an Alfa Romeo Montreal yesterday, while since I've seen one of them

Most of those are the Avantime, think there was a wrongly captioned Initiale in there

Renault Avantime - niche marketing that didn't work. The 2 door coupe MPV! Also introduced the "ass" that is now common on the Megane. Proper "Marmite" car - but enough on here love it. First saw it at the 2000 Motor Show as twin concept cars on the Renault stand and I was hooked. Haven't driven one, probably best I don't as contemporary road tests were not flattering. Did think seriously of getting one as a tow vehicle as it will just about legally tow my race car (2000kgs capacity), but will probably end up with some giant double cab truck

Won't look half as cool though

Drove past this garage in deepest, darkest Stoke Poges

http://www.hudsonsoflondon.com/home.php

I caught a glimpse of something big and blue outside - I slowed down and saw that it was a Bugatti Veyron! They also had a Pagani Zonda and a GT40 in the window. On the way back I passed it again and the Bugatti had been replaced by an SLR. Not bad stock for a small village garage!

I seen a SS (Corvette engined) one burn off a old M5 at traffic light in Sydney 2 years ago.

If I ever lived out Australia, that's what i'd have

There's only leaf springs on the back though!!

Not sure how rare these are... but i've never seen one before!!!

Walking back to my car from work yesterday, saw this monster parked up... noted the Hemi 6.1 V8 symbol on the front wing

Anyone seen one of these before? I imagine they're all over America

He's a good one, on the A3 near robin hood roundabout, i drive past a very old car, couldn't see the badge, but possible a bently because it looked like it had wings on it, but on the back of the boot it had 541, the car also had a racing sign of the number 1 on the side too, not exactly much to go on
