 Would I?

He deserved it for having a massive collection of lovely cars, envy no, we leave that to others.

and I am a bit stumped Mr Mo Roly, apart from seeing a Camaro, or Trans Am in the doors, and possible Fierro Notchback/ roofline.

Any connection to a frame , would it be  Cage,as Nicholas Cage is a serial car collector, (as is JayL o2), and after a crash the Fierra Ferrari kit in that film, the Rock,the whole body came off revealing the underpinnings.Apart from that it is a complete mystery car to me.

He does have a magnificent collection of cars that grows by the day. Well, if I could afford to, I'd do exactly the same. As it is, I currently have no cars and I'm picking up a people carrier in a week's time. I'm not envious...

The Zimmer Quicksilver was based on the Pontiac Fiero, is mid-engined and was designed to ape various seventies/eighties barges.

It looks a little like an Oldsmobile Toronado at first glance, though much less so when you look at it closely.

I seem to remember it was GBt who quoted the lyrics from Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody in another thread last year, maybe he knows the words to 'Another One Bites The Dust'?
