Can't remember if I've posted it here before, but here's a link to some pictures of my retro car.

It's not fast, but it was the greatest step forward in car design ever. Whatever modern car you drive now will owe something to it.

Here is a pic of My 110.

Done quite a bit to it since owning it and have lots more plans yet :wink:

The roof was a nightmare to paint, and I nearly gave up several times.

That's a great roof-job:D

I think it'd really suit my 110Td5 CSW :D :D

Theres a lovely little Series 1 up in Halifax that's got the Union flag on its bonnet, & that looks lovely

Mindst you, our XKR would look vary 'Austin Powers-ish' if we had that painted the same way, & SWMBO looks nothing like Felicity Shagwell :D

Ah the DS. Great car if you have someone doing the maintainance for you. Frickin nightmare to work on, mine drove me nuts in the end and sold it to some tarquin type city dude in Notting Hill. Spent the money on a 67 Fastback Mustang which turned out to be the most dissapointing thing I have ever owned- crap handling, crap brakes, rubbish build quality and an interior made out of the sweepings off the Wurlitzer factory floor. :roll:

The first picture was taken by my friend Dean - he really does take amazing photos!
