I'm not into cars, but I'm into this! :shock: That has to be the coolest thing on four wheels, and for class it certainly puts the current batch of Skodas to shame.

Although I personally would rather have the Mercedes here are a couple of pics of Campagnolo support vehicles in the US

I had (last summer) a 1978 Mercedes W123 just like in the picture (not in team colours, of course) and it is, by far, the most comfortable car I've ever driven - including new XJ, Audi A8, 90s 7-Series. I drove it for 8 hours straight with only a fuel stop and not a single ache or pain. And headrests that you can actually rest your head on whilst driving! Awesome motorway car.

Here's another team car, a Volvo 760 saloon, circa 1982/83.

Apologies for the image quality, only after uploading it did I see the poor quality - I scanned the original photo which was fine.

Roadking.
