Hmm, let's see where this thread goes :roll:

Here are my inputs for now... have seen many many other cars but either didn't have a cam or just didn't take a pic (was passing too fast, or it might have seemed like a stalker scene to take a pic)

Porsche Cayenne Turbo
Image

MGB Fastback
Image

MGA Roadsters
Image

Image

Unknown antique... looks British tho
Image

Mercedes Benz W111 S Class (fin tail)

All the pics with the exception of the Benz were taken in d west. The white MGA and MGB are owned by the same chap.... a Mr. Bennette from Glencoe. Said he's willing to sell for about $80K a piece. I normally see the red MGA on Robert St Woodbrook most of the time... seems the owner lives there. Heard he's a real arse tho.. guess he fed up of ppl asking if he selling it.

The Benz was down in Mayaro... it too was for sale. I have the number somewhere (will look for it), but that was over a year ago so I'm not sure of its status now

The dealership is now complete. After a very successful launch and the sale of a healthy population of Boxters, Caymans and the big seller, the Cayenne, something still didn't feel just right. Now we are happy to say that Lifestyle Motors is now a proper Porsche dealership! This beautiful 911 Carrera S packs a naturally aspirated 3.8-litre flat-6 engine that puts out 385hp! It also comes equipped with Porsche's latest double clutch (PDK) gearbox for the fastest gear-shifting available from the marque. The crown jewel is finally in place...

Check out the pics here:

Cinco, the HSR was made in very limited numbers....only about 40 or so....a few are in ireland, one in Australia, and one here....about 28 have survived

The base model 1.3 chevette was known the GM T-car, one of the first true global cars. It exists in Brazil and south America as an Opel.

The US Chevette looked like this:

the Vauxhall 1256cc Chevette looked like this:

50 is the 'official' figure that was supposed to be produced for homologation but nobody is exactly sure. Vauxhall fudged the figures....best we know is they made 34 street cars and 16 works cars, wich adds up to 50, but many of the works cars were recycled and at least one car was rallied on different occasions with different plates!

the pistons are Cosworth, but everything is engineered by WB Blydenstein
The head is derived from a Lotus design. The early HS cars actually ran Lotus engines

The works cars had up to 240bhp. They ran either 2.3 or long stroke 2.6 and had hotter cams

Take win they MG man, your car win hands down.

It is not only rare, but it also has genuine legendary status. Fine pedigree.
That was always a very hott car.

It looks really good in those photos.

Correct me if im wrong, but wasnt the homologation requirement a 500 production run. I know many manufacturers were allowed to race even before they reached that number but that was supposed to be the target.

I have some pics of my friend's Jaguar E Type on my phone but I cant download them to my PC.

FISA Gp4 homologation required 200 units to be built. This was applied to the original HS spec cars, not the widebody HSRs. Vauxhall entered the first works HS cars with the Lotus development engine, but the street cars had the Vauxhall DOHC.

When this was discovered after a few races, they were banned until they got their act together. Big scandal. They still never made the full number of homologated cars. How they got that past FISA, considering the first bluff, is one of the all-time mysteries! Only 50 HSR 'evolution' cars were required under FISA homologation rules. Vauxhall showed FISA a few competed cars, a bunch of bodykits and intended works cars which they palmed off as street homologation cars, and bluffed their way!

In fact, many of the HSR cars (ours included) were converted to R spec from HS cars......so the same cars were homologated TWICE :!: The whole Vauxhall homologation bobol is legendary. To this day nobody has the official numbers, and nobody can explain how they got away with it

Jaguar produces the only sportscars where an automatic transmission is not out of place
Enzo himself was once reported to have said the E-type was the only car he washed was a Ferrari :!:
That says a lot
The design is based on the C and D-type racecars, hence the slippery aerodynamic shape
It was pulled and stretched into those sleek lines so it could accommodate its passengers properly

its funny looking at all these technically sophisticated Japanese car next to those old British classics. Even though the japanese cars will probably blow the doors off them, they will never attain the legendary status of say a Jag or a Vauzhall.

They dont have the pedigree or the history. Even the older Japanese classics like the 240Z is better than the modern techno gizmo Nissans.

Those cars evoke emotion, I can remember reading magazines from my youth about those classic cars at the hands of legendary drivers. I can remember the old Datsun 1600SSS that ruled the Safari. Those cars were highly sought after here, they were scarce. A brand new one cost $500.00 more than the standard 1600 with fingertip gear change from the showroom here. I know because back in 1973 my father went to massy to buy a 1600Datsun and my big brother who was a racing fanatic back then tried to convince him to buy the SSS, he even offered to put the extra money.

When I see these shitty Bluebirds that never do sheit on a racetrack with that famous SSS badge, all I can do is shake my head. Its soooo sad.
