Rover 827 SLi Limousine
Pretty dreadful eh! It's all about the details - I especially like the hubcaps, my dad had the same ones on his J-reg 214. I suppose Alan Partridge would be ferried around in this back in his "Knowing Me, Knowing You" heyday. The two-tone paint is also pretty dire, colourcoded bumpers, lovely.
Just Â£2500 (!) will secure you this level of prestige.

Starting in the 80's, and this is just.... NO!.... only 8 made, thankfully - been 1 bangered that I know of:
Presumabley this monstrosity was the predecessor:
Been a couple bangered - there was a white one on the road in north shropshire that I used to see regularly in the late 90's
And finally, before that, stop-gap model austin "in that blandcrab actually looks kinda cool" shocker FTW!
Only one has been banger raced that I'm aware of, way back in 1999 - so there must be some more hiding out there somewhere!

They were relatively rare then but it must of registered
I hope that the incident brought home to the Lady Mayoress, and indeed to the rest of the Council, what a f***ing stupid idea speed bumps are?

About 3 years ago I was down on the south coast with a mate picking up a well shagged HA Viva for 50 quid to banger race, and we were priviledged to see a 3-litre limo, hearse & ambulance all parked up together behind the blokes workshop - although the place had a banger connection, I don't think these were heading for the track, although they would have needed work to go back on the road... not sure what happened to them, but I hope they survived.

Yeah they are pretty cool - never thought I'd see one in the Uk, until last month...
Ultimate stretched shite, Checker Aerobus, give me an acre and I'll turn it around
I know the bloke who raced it, and he said the car had been parked up in the coventry area mouldering away for some time before he managed to get hold of it for racing.

Is that a Humber Hawk/Supersnipe next to it? quality scrappy by the looks of it of the sort I thought had long gone, any more pics?
There's a landcrab limo in a scrappy near me. Apologies for the shite phone pic...

This one's a bit on the angular side:
Glenfrome were trying to get Nissan's approval, but it wasn't forthcoming due to Type Approval issues (I have some correspondence about it). I haven't yet heard of one for definite, even on the track.
I saw a 3-litre ambulance in Ipswich years ago, parked up in a multi-storey. Possibly saw it again in PC a while later. I did get a very poor pic (and this was way pre-Autoshite) but it'll take some finding.
Some stretchies at the 2001 Firecracker:
1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL project car (still on hold); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL (was daily driver, written-off and awaiting repair)
1996 Lexus LS400
And a couple of modern Toyotas.
