I've opened this thread to make a place for some pictures of motor vehicles - interesting or attractive or just simply curious. I've started it below with three pictures taken at a steam rally a few years ago. I've got a few more but please feel free to contribute pictures.

Dont be sad Cath. If you are my age you would likely prefer a toy boy, either way I am too old for you!Cry

Hee Hee! That hit a nerve. I remember being quite surprised whan I first went to Oz and found that they had the equivalent of our North/South divide between NZ and Oz. Same thing happens in Canada with the US.

The same thing happens within our Australian states.  Melbourne verses Sydney, Melbourne verses Adelaide, Perth seems to be on it's own, Darwin is definately on it's own. 
  What hope have we got?

John, seeing the pics of your kit cars reminded me of an engineer friend of mine who had a Marcos Mantula. Sleek shape, glass-fibre body, big engine (2.8 litre?). The noise was amazing even just when he was reversing into a parking space at work. In his younger days he had spent a lot of time travelling about to see his favourite aeroplane flying - the English Electric Lightning jet fighter!

"Kit cars"?  Grrrrrr

(The red one was a 'kit' but nobody else has anything like the basket car!)

Cath, would you have gone for this package? The Old Fart with his first Lancia Fulvia just before it bit the dust. Lovely little car to drive but oh those sub-frames...

I once saw a Lancia being driven along the M4 that was only 3 or 4 years old and was showing huge surface rust problems.The owner had obviously had his complaints ignored by the supplier, because he had painted arrows  in white (it was a red car) pointing to the big unsightly bits , with comments written like "Italy's Revenge for WW11" and "Call this a car...More like a Sieve ".........Together with the date of purchase......He was NOT HAPPY !

Pity because they were pretty and a good drive.

If it works, here is a snap of "Thunderbug" taken last night .......such a great car. The owner must live close to Leicester and regularly attends this meeting. I have seen him leave on two occasions...The performance is Brutal and Startling .

(I'm posting this because I saw the car mentioned by "softsuvner " on this topic on 25/1/08 having seen her four years previously  in Ireland...............It's so nice to see an unrestored machine like this being campaigned regularly and not tarted up for a rich owner or a museum)

And here's the That Motor........Out of an early Aeroplane I understand.....(Note the red ignition safety cut-out key lying on the grass under the car....the owner must have found it , because I saw the car running shortly after this picture was taken)

Worth a try Cath.....!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GN_(car)

Found this on Wikepedia. It's a JAP V twin engine. I remember a smaller engine on was it the Morgan? Mounted at the front of the chassis to get maximum cooling.
