1970 Pontiac Ventura with a 400 Big Block. Former race car, struggles to stay alive at idle, has longtube headers, and a flowmaster exhaust, sounds kickass. 4.11 Rear end. The teacher was complaining it got literally only 1 mile to the gallon.

Bentley continental in Worcestor? Must be a drug dealer

Raced at Road Atlanta last weekend, more on that in another thread... but this was in our paddock. 1960 Porsche 356 GTL Carrera-Abarth, continuous single ownership by a well known enthusiast since the 1970s. Stunning.

An Alfetta GTV. Looked so agressive and purposeful amongst modern cars.

I just saw a dealership I mentioned years ago on UCP and see often; a Saab, Hummer, and Saturn dealership

Very sad times for them.

You don't see many in the UK ether, Iíve only ever seen the old BMW Apina's on the road. I've seen some of the new ones at GoodWood, i even got a brochure.

Lately, a pink SL 55 AMG R230, both the mk1 and mk2 Lotus Elise. Great sound the mk1!
The BMW Z8 is always a nice spotting.
A few Ferraris as well. For some reasons a 360 Spider followed me on the motorway while I was doing about 100 km/h. Perhaps he wanted to check my Puggy to buy it for his gardener?!

Also Ram pick-ups are increasingly popular over here.

All of them?
All I know is it's large, and when one was parked close to a Panda I roughly estimated the second could have been stored in the first.

Maybe the Tundra I've seen once in downtown looks even larger, or perhaps it was because of the tiny street it was driving on. wtf.

Forgot to add this one at the weekend ..

A completely ground up rebuilt Lotus Europa original Twin Cam.
This car was all but destroyed at hillclimb last year

All back to original race spec from the 70s.
As the owner said , "having rebuilt it to original I cant afford to race it"
He still won his class tho' !!!

Like a few months ago I saw a 427 Cobra, not sure if it was real or a kit car, probably a kit car but you never know. I saw a viper 2 days ago, a SRT10 coupe, Dark red with silver stripes. Also about a week ago i saw a Yellow Volvo 850 T5R Wagon, supposedly there are less than 50 of those worldwide in that color and less than 5 in America. The old lady driving it probably didnt have a clue about how rare it is though. I've seen plenty of Corvettes, Z06s ZR1s etc, but then again I live in Nashville, an hour south of where they are made. I've seen a 1st gen Lotus Elise, I believe it was a 111S but I dont honestly remember. My grandpa saw a Murcielago like a month ago, and I saw a Superleggera Gallardo 2-3 months back.
