Now we’re talking. I could almost be persuaded to have one, except they’re probably shedloads of money these days. There’s a couple around these parts which have some tasteful wheel arch extensions, bigger rubber and nice paint that look nice and cute.

I think the G man that designed the esprit also designed this , its a Mk2 ,  THE Mk1 is super rare on the roads and is loved by the vdub boys.

You never saw those on the road! Which is a shame,  I really like the 4-door wedge shape.


I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

I remember the Austin Allegro Vandem plas,  did they do one with the princess also ?

The prototype is at the Motor Museum at Gaydon. It was never put into production. The prototype used the same design of door mirror as the Elite/Eclat S2.2!

I had one of these (Fiat 128 Coupe) when I was a lad, haven't seen one for many years now.

I had two SL 128 and three 128 3P. Wonderful cars and I used one 3P every day for 10 years from 1992 to 2002 and it did not rust (much). Quite amazing, it was out in all weathers and just stayed in good shape. I would run it to 6500 in 4th (top) gear for hours and it loved it.

My mate had a 128 Rally. That is very rare RHD.

Walked past a Maestro parked in the village the other day.  Someon around here has a Ford Probe on their drive while there is a Mk111 or MkIV in use just up the road.
