What the infuriatingly Holier Than Thou Top Gear Carbage garbage fails to point out is, that the front, and I think also the back, of that Veedub is/was a comercially available kit, based on the 1940 Ford. And, I actually think it looks quite good! I get a bit hacked off with the superior sneering of the so-called cool people with taste, directed at the uncool with no taste. Says who? Surely, the whole point of taste is, it's personal?

This seems as good a place as any to add my Dutch spot taken on my daytrip for work this week. Unfortunately, though I did spot quite a few old cars, they were mostly as we were on the move so this is the only one that presented a photo opportunity :(

Just as an aside, did we get the saloon version of this model Mazda 323 in the UK? Can't ever remember seeing one :?

Never seen a 323 saloon, but I bet they're rather nice. I quite fancy one of the 323F estates - they have a very pleasant lightweight feel to them, a comfy ride and and a nice whizzy little engine.

Wolseley was in Barendrecht, I think it belongs to a guy who works at the bike dealer in the pic.

I think the red sports car in the dealer's window is a Glas 1600GT, might be wrong though.

Most certainly is a Glas, either a 1300GT or 1700GT, could even be the later BMW badged version. (BMW 1600GT). Gorgeous cars.

Love the colours of the DS!I saw one of those Lotuses a couple of months ago on the school walk (why do people say "run" when they invariably drive?) They look awesome mixing it with mode traffic.
