This car looks like the one where the guy rubs oil onto the bumpers on the advert before wheeler dealers on the television. Does anyone else recognise it?

Two days ago while searching quiet roads for the Erzgebirge rallye in September. There used to be thousands around, nowadays they are really rare.

Nissan Stagea (Skyline Estate)?

Clearly Not on the road, but this 3.4 mk2 Jag is for sale. Belongs to a widowed client of mine...
Clearly needs full restoration, but the interior looked rather good and smells fantastic!!
Drop me a line if interested...

Spotted outside our awfice a few days ago. This one's had a respray but looks like the original plate. If you look carefully you'll see red dust ingrained in the tyre walls.

They were made 1966-68. I still see a few in daily use.

The above car looks Vauxhalll-ish/GM but which one? The colour and regional variations make it unrecognisable.

This however is a Triumph TR6 and looks wonderfully muscular.
It was caught in the now regular traffic jam just before Buckingham Palace caused by the recent heavy and impressive security measures.
Front wheel spacers make it a bit too wide?
