Coicident to the news story elsewhere about Raymond Loewy's Studebaker Avanti coming up for auction, I snapped this one at a recent race meeting in Sydney - always was a favourite of mine, and even if I can't bid on Loewy's own car, I still have a hope that maybe one day a nice clean Avanti may come up at the right price........

Went to the National Corvette Convention last week.

Near 200 cars on display, but this one was parked outside in the street, and I thought, one of the nicest.

Fresh catch,

Spotted yesterday just around the corner at my street in Lisbon,  a Morgan parked in the purest Lisbon style.

Its only 2 years old now but ( in my opinion) it is a classic since the day one...

 

An RX7 spotted at the door of well know lisbon classic car dealer,

(there is an E-type on the showroom...)

How about an early sixties Buick Riviera? Parked outside the local car-wash.

Nice.

Where did you find that restoration business? Not only is it a brave man who can take on reskinning a 'Superleggera' but they also rebuild E-Type shells from the bare bones.  And it looks like they are doing a good job. A bit of guessing and Gooogling turned up their website at;

an interesting business. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Meanwhile, I think that red Buick is either a '64 or '65 Special, or possibly a Skylark.
