    Think this may exist somewhere on the site, so sorry if someones posted this. Why dont we have an ultra rare car watch, just for interest, where you post here when you see on the road rare cars. Now i know you all know i love aston martins, but even they are too common for this thread. and same goes for ferrari 360 430 etc etc.

    ill start, on the road to france last weekend was overtook (is that a word) by a porsche carrera gt. also saw a mclaren slr back in glasgow

    Hmmm, rare cars eh?.

    Smug Mode.:bigsmile:

    1970 Plymouth Sport Satellite. the only one in the UK.

    1976 Lotus Eclat. Only 1660 (approx) ever made.

    !982 Vauxhall Chevette auto. When was the last time you ever saw a Chevette let alona an auto?

    The Satellite is at work waiting for the engine to be plummed in then it's back!!! and the other two are on my drive. :p

    A guy across the road from my mum has a Hummer H2 and there's a Lotus Cortina that lives somewhere near me. My guv at work has a 1967 Ford Anglia (featured in last months Retro Ford).

    The engine is in its hole and all bolted in, just need to fit the rad and plum it in, fill engine with oil and tune it. I should have it back by the weekend (touch wood). If I can make the meet I will, it would be great to put some names to faces and finally meet people. It all depends on where it is and how much fuel £££ I have to spend.
