Sadly only the Exige was mine. Rest belong to a mate.
Fellow PH member? The 996 looks familiar

Why did you tape over the front side air intakes?
Previous owner photo but remote oil cooler and air intake bringing temps too cool at the ring.

Off topic, but that looks absolutely fantastic cool
Loved it and a car I shouldn't have sold. Now on the hunt for an S3 Exige to join. Would gladly have an S2 but at the money they command these days might as well have an S3.

Indeed he is. The GT2 is a bit of a weapon as well.

I think that’s the one I had a passenger ride in some years back when the annual charity ride thing at Jenny Wren Inn was a thing. Still remember him diving down a dirt track to evade the cops that had turned up biggrin

Lazy posting by me, not aware of any discussion and just tagged my response on to a post I just read. Can’t imagine anyone posting on this thread would mistake a 620 for a Beemer.

Recognised the car as a press one so figured I’d drop that into the thread.
M6...
Don’t care.

Bentley, Ferrari & Aston?
I believe the Bentley is one of 5 1954 R-type Continental Drop Head Coupe by Park Ward.

Sadly I didn't get a photo as it looked like the car might have ceased to proceed and I thought it might not have gone down too well but I saw a single seater, sort of Formula 3000 looking, at the exit of a local petrol station this afternoon.
I remembered the registration so looked it up later on the MOT history thing and it's down as a 1987 Van Diemen RF981ST.

I didn't know they made any road going cars and there is very little info online.

That's not a UK registraton number. How was it on the MOT checker?

That wasn't the registration number, that was the vehicle make and model as it is on the MOT history checker.
The registration ended with VDM, which made me think Van Diemen, but I'd never heard of a road going one.

It looked quite surreal, and spectacular, in the surroundings!

I've covered the registration but here's the MOT history page for it.

I wish I'd just been bold and pulled in to get a photo now, I drove past it twice, but both times there was a guy next to it on the phone so thought it might have been rather inappropriate. nono

The closest image I can find online is this, but with indicators and a rear number plate! eek
