Love the little blue van so 8) The vintage Datsun Z is so retro. Not sure about the vauxhall, either now or back then.
Buggatti is out of this world ugly


Wash your mouth out Sir- that Bug is a stunning car, a technical marvel and an out of this world experience behind the wheel. I didn't really get it a first- a little too German and sterile, but after a hour it sort of gets under your skin. A very memorable car. The Chevette makes an awesome rally car in the right hands too.
Classics are very subjective things- personally i would rather set fire to my arse than own an MG or an E-Type but I'd walk over hot coals for 60s Italian stuff- even a humble Fiat saloon does it for me!!

Was a great show though- could have spent an absolute fortune given half a chance :D :shock:

Personally I don't 'get' Fat Chance bikes?

I really don't see what's so special about them personally, but I wouldn't go smashing one up just to prove a point.

Same with the Daytona, how can any lump of metal be worth THAT MUCH money??? :?

but.................as cars go, t'is a thing of beauty to a lot of people, so respect 8)

Oh and Ferrari have ridden on the back of it for a LONG time too! :roll:

Still think the Vincent rocks. 8)

What i do respect is the fact that most of these cars are made by human beings not robots. Many hundred/thousands hours of workmanship. Mainly the very workers couldn't afford to buy the cars that they made. In the case of the over rated 'red' one.
