O/T slightly, but do you happen to see many March Cabriolets, Andy? I know they're not common in the UK, just wonder if they're a frequent sight in their native area!
I've just checked a Japanese carfinder website and there are 24 x March Cabrios for sale in Japan at the moment. In comparison, there are over 3,500 x March hatchbacks listed. The site also lists 3 x Mitsuoka Viewt Cabrios for sale at between GBP4,000-6,000.

In central Tokyo at least, you don't tend to find many older domestic models as they tend to get traded for new after the first or second shaken (comprehensive MOT at 3 years and then every 2 years thereafter).

Okay, spottings are quite rare in my part of the world, but tonight I walked passed this weird thing. It can't have been more than ,5 meters tall.

Any idea what it is?

I would say that it's a VW Variant Fastback, that's beeen chopped, and then chopped a little more. smile

Not the best of pictures, but I chose this one as you can see the 3 vents towards the rear, and the tail lights...which are the 2 clues that show it's a Variant.

More to come later,

I've never been a fan of these to be honest.. but I think this picture has just turned me. How elegant, but purposeful, yet discreet.. absolutely beautiful!

Well worth a trip there by the looks of it, Suprised Shmee has not taken his video camera there yet.
Well done Andy for getting Vol 4 off to such a great start! Love seeing these kind of post with a great mixture of super, rare and super rare.

Trying to add something interesting to the thread, I saw this yesterday at the Jumeirah hotel in Knightsbridge. Ford GT 1000RE, so it has 1000hp. The turbos were stupidly loud.

Mitsuoka Viewt; Japanese manufacturer's attempt to make a Nissan March (Micra) look like a MkII Jaguar. First time to see the Cabrio version...

More soon,

there's certainly a few in Malta, usually pinky metallic with tan roof.

Definitely interesting cars about during the weekend, but can't speak for weekdays as I'm in the office. I normally take my pics while taking a walk on Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

I think it looks good! If the bumper was taken off the exhausts would stick out so far anyway.

Spent a fortnight on the Costa Blanca - a disappointing amount of exotica on show it has to be said, although I did find some:



A stunning S1 Elise:



And probably my best spot - a G55 AMG. It was genuine due to the side-exit exhausts smile Pretty sure these are very rare.
