X2 1OUD on a Vauxhall Monaro . It wasn't that Loud.

Ferrari in players parking at Bath Rugby. Can't believe a Prop would get in or out?

Wow, I didn't know Vauxhall were marketing the Holden Monaro in the UK.
That is a serious and almost good-looking car.

Just deleting some notes on my phone and found I’d logged M30 on a brown MINI in Marlborough :-)

Seen at a french classic meeting, I don't think the british number is genuine though.

Yes, 63GTO is a genuine GTO (and a genuine plate) - Chassis Number 3767GT in fact, in David Piper's BP livery. Currently owned by Anthony Bamford, I believe :D

Luckily it’s an expensive racecar or it would be on a Q plate by now :mrgreen:

Well, technically, you could argue it's actually a very expensive roadcar - taxed and MOTd (on DVLA going back to 2006, which is the start of computer records) :D

Bit of a throwback in terms of spacing and the use of yellow fixing. I wonder how long until the ANPR flags him up for a visit?

And Roger posted a recent pic of another car here that I saw on Facebook - the William Towns built e-type conversion for hill-climb champion Jim Thomson – who was also Managing Director of shot-blasting equipment manufacturer Guyson International

I don't think I would have guessed what it was had I not been told. :shock: Some aspects of the rear three quarter view almost seem to be BMC 1100 influenced.
