I should have added that photos are the right way up on my screen and this hasn't happened before.

Whilst doing the rally on the Saxony trip we videoed this eclectic mix of cars coming in the other direction. Many are identified, but the ones with question marks aren't. Anybody got suggestions. I did flash back to all of them and enjoyed the locals waving at me in the town, at the end of the footage. It would be good to find the club that organised that trip, and see what they thought of a UK Interceptor coming the other way!!

My Suggestions are; Maroon Spitfire, Mercedes, Audi 100, at 0:14 brown & cream car?, 0:22 similar maroon & cream car? 0:23 blue estate? 0:25 black saloon? Mercedes,1:01 yellow saloon? Skoda, another Spitfire, Mini, Opel Manta,VW Beetle, Lada, Mercedes, 1:28 White Cadillac?, Chevy Nova, 1:31 Black American 2 door? 1:32 Blue American 2 door? VW Beetle, Skoda Felicia(mistaken for a Borgward on the video),Mercedes, Ferrari Dino 308 GT4,1:38 US Pick-up? 2 Trabants, Motorcycle & sidecar, Mercedes, Trabant,3:04 Green & white Van? Opel Rekord, and 3:37 Fire Engine?

When we approached that lake in your video my copilot Dean from Melbourne reading from the book said something to the extent of "a big water on the left" and Monica and I had to laugh because he sounded like a native american in a western. We saw these beauties in Dresden:

A pesky Esky - and the rare "Sundowner" model too. I don't know what's going on here today - it's the first nice day in ages but just since lunchtime I've seen a purple Stag, gold early Silver Shadow, Dodge Charger and a (admittedly not classic) Bentley Continental Drophead.

As its Friday and the sun is shining, I decided to make the office commute a bit better and travelled today in style...

Just come back from a pub lunch and the VW was in the next car park across - was seriously low!!

Wonderful superb condition original old EH Holden in front of me exiting the car park at our local auto parts store recently.

Still carrying its first number plate; love the tow bar. It looked like a daily driver to me, these cars seem to live forever.

Seen in Chelsea today outside a famous restaurant.
It seemed like a bit of a boys' lunch with lots of chauffeur driven Mercedes, Bentleys etc and this single uber-cool, immaculate James Young Silver Cloud II. Terrific!

The vehicles you thought were "Black and Blue American 2 door" are actually 2 Russian Volga's imho.

Chance encounter with an E-Type Lightweight on the autobahn. Drove together for about 40kms. Has a good acceleration, but the C-V8 did not disappoint (my foot was on the floor at times) :D. A joy to look at, but also a bit intimidating (PS the other cars usually got out of our way fast).
