Seeing it in motion like that makes the proportions and lines look bang on.... it almost looks like something from 'Captain Scarlet' or 'UFO'.... wink

I have to agree; the photos of this car and that of the Jarama Bob" kept me inspired through some particularly frustrating times during the restoration of my car. Indeed, it took a lot of strength not to buy a set of reproduction SV wheels to go on mine - though that particular battle has not been won or lost yet!

This is another one that inspired me; lovely understated "RatRod" look that should definitely NOT be improved! Again, SV wheels really suit the stance of the car.



Loads of photos on that one here:

Perfect,more time driving than polishing,even in the rain, no more worrying about where's the safest place to park and who's leaning against my concours Lamborghini. one of each would be the perfect pair. one to drive and one to polish. I think shabby chic would be the ideal description.

GJK 854X when it was dark blue at Castle Combe probably early to mid 80s, just getting ready to go out on the track.

I remember seeing it at Goodwood and Castle Coombe back in the the day,little did i know then that i would be owning it some years later.Shame they didn't keep it this colour or better still left it in the original gold ,never did like the pearl yellow far to modern,think it must have been a Murcielago colour,kept on getting mistaken for a kit car ,I'm sure it was the colour.

I sat in this car when it was gold, it was the same owner who had it sprayed dark blue with the gold badges. I thought it looked fantastic in both colours.

Yes i agree and i don't even like gold , either way both colours would be a improvement on the yellow, one thing to have your kit car mistaken for a real Countach but to have your Countach mistaken for a kit car can get a bit tedious. PS This is all in the past tense as just over 4 years ago i had a brain malfunction and sold her but we won't talk about that as i can't see what i'm typing with tears in my eyes.
