I think that is a DB4GT(DB4/0140/R,factory modified with 5 speed box and 15 in. wheels, but it may have been further modified to Zagato spec of which I am not aware, but originally was only a 4GT

DB4GT & what a car that is, makes a 5 seem utterly done to death- one of the unsung greats, I wouldn't give a GTZ house room over this car- wonderfull, & they bang on about 250GT's etc????
We saw a sanction 2 couple of weeks back, lovely to see but, not as awseome as the DB4 S2 at same place- how pretty are early 4's!

Saw quite a few classics on the way back from a great night with the JOC at Ludlow. Loads of scooters too, over 100 I would guess.
Only managed to get a pic of this Rover in Monmouth...

Some good spotting on the way down to Rejen yesterday. I should have also got a photo of Stuart's Volvo 240 which we took down (he had some wheels to drop off).

Just before Stuart dropped me off, not sure what it is.

Not sure this counts as a classic, 53 plate Beetle spotted on my way into work earlier in the week.

Needless to say, this isn't one of my photographs but I thought it intriguing. Someone on Flickr shows postcards principally from the 50s and 60s, many showing the iconic architecture of US motels in that period. This one caught my eye. I wonder if the MG (and its owner!) are still around!

I think the unidentified car with the RX 11 registration is a Rolls Royce Silver Wraith.

Just followed this mint Moggie Traveller on the last few miles to home back from Ludlow. Wish I'd been in a position to photograph the Aston DB6 and V8 Volante on the M4 in Newport.

Hell's bells! That sounds serious. Hope he was ok! :lol:

I love your Minor picture, Richie. I can't look at it without imagining the flatulent exhaust burble every time he changed gear. Part of our childhoods that you don't hear any more.

It's a Bentley S1, 4.9 litre straight six with bodywork by Freestone and Webb. C.1957
A totally vast car like this one.....
