Start of a classic car rally a couple of days ago... Hillman is recognizable, but the blue car beside it?? A Marina?

I agree. Had to google it but what I saw looks exactly the same. Reminds me of a Jensen interceptor.

Could also be an Alpine Fastback....they look pretty much identical except for the model name on the "C" pillar.

That one on BAT is the nicest I've ever seen. Granted, I've never seen one in person.

That’s pretty funny - I saw the post and thought “ I just saw one of these somewhere for the first time!” It was BAT. Nice. Has a little Barracuda in there too from the back. Cool car.

Hmm, I'm not sure about how I feel about this car.
I like the back, I don't mind the front, but somehow, IMO, they don't go together.

Interesting......



The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.

To the intelligent person, life appears infinitely mysterious, but the stupid have an answer for everything.

I completely understand... somewhere around the "B & 1/2 pillar" (what would you call that), the car looses me.



Cheers,
