THE car you covet..
There’s one of those Skylines for sale near me for 50k and it’s the only one I’ve ever seen in the flesh. It’s a stunner. Lightyears ahead of what was available from other manufacturers in 1972.
Personally, I could fill a few pages so I’ll just post my current crush.
No real interest in a fast car for the road anymore. I just want something for the track with sticky tyres and flame throwing exhaust.Posted 2 years agogarage-dwellerSubscriber
If I won the lottery into 7 figures I might have to get a 911 of some sort – a 2WD “basic” one. For some reason there is something that’s enduringly appealing about every generation of that car to me and the Carrera 2 or whatever the bottom end one is these days would be enough I think to scratch the itch.Posted 2 years ago
It’s a one shot deal gentlemen/ladies
Title says “Cars you covet”. Plural. So, I’ll have those three, thanks. If it had to be one, it would be the V600. I just love the utter lunacy of it, and the noise. Oh, my Lord above….the noise! A properly coach built work of art, made by men in brown coats but with the power to turn the world off it’s axis.
The POW is a lovely statement car, from an age that was full of awful cars.
The DB4GT is the overlooked stunner. Everyone looks at the “Bond” cars, but they’re wrong. Of course, they’re wrong as Bond drove a Blower, but they’re also wrong as that GT is, well…..just look at it!
Oh, and possibly a ’56 Bentley Continental DHC by Mulliner Park Ward.Posted 2 years ago
Stoner, stop that filth!
Mrs CFH grew up with one of those. And an UR quattro SWB. There’s one of the “normal” ones in the village, and it’s lovely. Utterly lovely. The UR are ever more so!
Julian, there are, I believe, around 15 of them left, and that price sounds about right. A near neighbour had one when we lived in London. Used to use it to drive his dogs to the park for a walk. Class. Pure, undiluted class!
(Hope your old banger’s doing well, BTW. And no, I don’t mean Mrs A! She’d kill me!)Posted 2 years agoscaredypantsSubscriber
I saw a beautiful pale blue jensen interceptor convertible today while I was out on the bike
My dad taught me from very young that it was the best car, like, evvah.
So that, please
