Two different cars spotted at Lisbon during last week-end, an Alfa GTV, probably a 4cil...

 

and the perfectt exemple of the way to loose a car without get a cabrio. During late 80's and early 90's, cutting VWs Type 1 was a popular (and profitable) sport here. Sometimes we can see the remains of that "trend"...

Spotted Mr Eliott in 'the Beast' this morning between Richmond & Twickenham, then a tidy dark silver/grey Aston DB4 on the South Circular in Sheen and a bright red Mk 2 Jag on chrome wires near Wandsworth bridge! Good selection for a chilly & slightly damp morning in London.
