Instead of being being so pedantic about, let's be honest, a little game on a car forum, why don't you take some photos? then I can decide if they're suitable or not ;)

It's a fair question, Josh - I'd say it would be a car made overseas (to the poster)?

So when is the closing date for this Josh, suggest due to lack of entries (1 to date and that's iffy in my book) can I suggest 22nd June perhaps, give people a couple of weekends

I know you did, now Mk1 Legend, could be qualifying or not, JV with AR of course, assembled, (note not built) in Cowley, does it count, hard isn't it to qualify what does or doesn't, do Peugeots made in Coventry count, or as said before a Slough built DS :w

Yes, you did see this car at Bromley, I was the chap with a radioactive glow that now looks like the Singing Detective.

Beauty must surely be in the eye of the beholder. 1986 Scirocco.
