    I feel like the McLaren owner might be trolling his relative / friend's car with that registration. 

    X8 Bosh!

    Deals on wheels is definitely a great group but my favorite place to window shop is www.bringatrailer.com Then again I like the oddball cars for sure. I've actually bought two cars from BaT, both purchases went swimmingly. Also my first stop most days is either hemmings or www.racingjunk.com.

    Saw this today on the A13 heading out of London. 1965 El Camino in mint condition. Absolute gem, and the first time I’ve ever seen one in the flesh. 

    I feel lime there can't be more than a handful of cherry Caminos in England. That was a heck of a spot! Aren't they a weird kind of wonderful?

    Sitting in the airport going through photos for the site and this one is probably out but it is definitely a standout:

    300sl by kindig it.

    I had a long chat with a guy from Sotheby's & RM auctions a couple of years ago about the 300sl.  He reckoned he'd probably driven more of them than anyone else on the planet who didn't work at Mercedes. 

    He said they were all "very disappointing" ... Mostly because they're garage queens and never do enough milage.  Breaks your heart a little bit tbh.

    Quite pleased with this one.  An unusual spot, certainly in the UK.

    Couldn’t take a picture as I was driving (and it was going in the opposite direction) but I saw a red Alfa Romeo 4C this morning. With the number plate THE 4C. Couldn’t decide if that was terrible, or secretly really cool.

    I think the white one might be an old Citroen estate (CX maybe) or a Ghostbusters style old US barge.

    The silver one looks like a de Tomaso to me!

    Is that an xr4i?

    Old school!

    According to www.howmanyleft.co.uk there are only 5 (!) Xr4i's left on the road and only a couple of hundred xr4x4's.
  • bobdylanbobdylan Member Posts: 2,813 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Not sure it's not badged . Wow only 5 left !!!!
  • bobdylanbobdylan Member Posts: 2,813 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I recon the silver one is the same as the orange one and that they mite be bmw M1s

    The silver one reminded me of a De Tomaso Pantera too, but it's not.
    God I loved saying that as a kid, De Tomaso Pantera, De Tomaso Pantera, De Tomaso Pantera... drove my parents mental
    Don't think its an M1 either but maybe its just a not entirely accurate model

    Tried cheating via Google Image Search.
    It is a.... Television set!

    No you're correct, it's a burnout / GTA / Ridge racer  style "looks like but not quite" car.

    Shades of Porsche tapiro & Maserati kamsin.  If it weren't for the headlights I'd think it was a delorean.

    The small red one might be an xj6 coupe.
