I didn't think Maserati could make the grille look any worse until I saw a new Levante today!

Legitimate double post :-)

Saw a gorgeous maroon DB5 convertible on the Cheltenham - Cirencester road this afternoon. Foreign (red on white) plates with the reg DB5C :shock:

Three French registered Mogs Northbound on the A417 this afternoon.
Saw two of them again today, heading in the same direction - so they're either very lost or have based themselves around here for a while? :mrgreen:

...Primrose yellow E-Type of the V12 persuasion, with wire wheels - a 'Roadster' that had the hood up, being driven in Leek - local car; been spotted and mentioned on here at least once before. Nice that it is driven so regularly...

Took G97 to the rolling road today and they have some really nice stuff there!

A silver K reg e-type on the ramps and a Chimera 500 with massive arches on the corner weights, as well as this lot outside:

Just a couple to get your brains working! (that's if they download OK). No prizes, I didn't know what they were until I read the badges on the cars. The first one was on Drive It Day in Cornwall, the second was actually last year in France at a rally with our SS1 Not quite cars I've seen today I know.
