Hi Keef, nice car, my 65 Morris was in that colour and my oldest sister had a 1300 Austin, in that blue too.

911 3,2 Speedster (or converted cabriolet with flat nose rear wheel arches)

Nice pre-1974 911 Targa, but should be nicer without towbar!

Both at Nürburgring, Summer 2011

Nice one Mario, some cars perhaps arent really suitable for towing-this a holiday snap from the early 1980s, was a case in point-but then I wasnt really into caravaning, especially whence on a steep dual carriageway on the A3 the van tried to overtake the caran 1100 ish cc Peugeot 204

Nice Chevy or Dodge pickup with the open to view Small block, Putney Radicals?

And an undercover Jag XJ...

 

A stock looking Pony car Nuno, with no optional dummy air intakes, and even steel wheels with wheel trims, from the outside, but with a GT type dash and dials. However its impossible to tell whether it had the optional Pony logod interior, or was a six or 8, no Vs in evidence so probably the former.

model looks like a late 69, early 70.That would be of the same period as the XJ6, which also had plain(unpierced steel discs, the V12s and series 2 had the Etype V12 type ones)with special Dunlop developed Groundhog type tyres, remember them, albeit the Groundhops were more really a copy of the SP sport Jag ones, for lesser cars, you cannot remember them?, nope you are all too young!

Being on this site locked in a time continium, with old cars on streets, like they used to be, is a bit like groundhog days.I dont mind being in a vehicle time warp.Maybe its keeping me young at heart.(as do bikes)

GBt,

I have no knowledge to see if the Mustang is in line 6 or a V8. The Jag is XJ Series I and is in the underground park of a Lisbon Shopping Center, as the Suzuki posted in other topic. Close to Suzuki are VW Type 1 (beetle) from early 60's and a Renault Spider. Maybe they rent spaces monthly.
