McLaren is controlled from Bahrain, and Caterham's main shareholder is a Brit based Malaysian.
Ginetta? TVR?

That Simca is an absolute gem. Never seen one of those, either as a saloon/coupe or a cabriolet. By the looks of it build by Facel Vega around 1950.

"My" mechanic's shop with a Fiat, two Alfa Romeos and an MGB underway. There are several classic cars in my town but it is still unusual to see two on the same drive to work.

How ironic that a car that sadly burned is being towed by one with the licence plate "FRY..."
