Only two TR6 cars in this rally. I parked the Punto and used the bathroom of the garage who had this US specced TR6 sitting in front.



Nice, but I liked this one better:


It was hot already at 10 o'clock:


Sounded the dogs:

Not much to beat the 2.5 straight 6 ohv.


When the lottery shows me its correct numbers I will find a proper daily driver TR6.

Next: 1930 Model A Ford

This 1968 327 wasn't bad either:



IMO the best sounding small block incarnation - as also used in the Iso Grifo Competizione:


Roger Wills stunning endurance hack.

More of this C3 later: prep dinner.

Hard to beat snout.


Four box and creature comfort.


Oh yes sir, it had a sound byte. I like the 327 (5.3) over the 427 (7.0) because of its revvier character. This small block - fed by huge Webers - is in the Iso Grifo / Bizzarrini Competizione then pumping out 425 and revving to 7K. But really no one is complaining with 350 ponies on tap.


C3 want. These early slimmer bodies beauties are just sex on wheels.


More Yank iron whizzing by.

Next: Beemers.

Well, the Z1 that is. Loverly shape and a great youngtimer:

Between March 1989 and June 1991 8000 were produced. Nice and creamy 325 straight 6 returns 170 brake giving this sporty roadster brisk performance.


1300 kgs, 0-60 in 9 secs, 220 Vmax - dunno if'd want that - and a quick check shows these go for about 20K euros: gulp. Oh my. S2000 would be my choice then.

More Dzjerman:

Nice and tidy Beetle cabrio.


A rare sight: Opel Kadett C1, the last small Opel to feature rear-wheel drive. Although never as popular as the period Ford Escort these cars are perfect daily drivers . . . and easy to tune.

Next: Cobra!

Great looking Datsun 1971 240Z:

Best colour ever.


A flawless coupe.


I never noticed the hint of Fiat 124 Sport Spider in the design.


Bucketloads of want . . .


Oncoming traffic kinda blocking my way . . .

Brace of Northern Italian stuff:

One must be brave to own and cherish . . .


Off course BMW stole this shape for its E36.


Almost lost my toes when this throathy V8 came whizzing along.


Quickly followed by a more contemporary cousin.


The 355 decided to follow.

Next: 500 kits.
