Plenty of '98+ grand Marquis still around although pretty trashed most of the time unfortunately.

Yes very true. 

 

this one was spotted at my mates garage having some work done. It was very tidy, and all original straight from the USofA. I had a massive hard on stood next to this, despite a Noble m400 sitting the other side of the workshop. Same guy owns a “fall guy” pick up truck which is currently on ebay

There's a rather pleasant looking 1975-ish Saab 96 V4 parked in the compound behind the place I'm currently working. I'll try to pap it, the owner wasn't around at the same time as me today so I couldn't ask him (we work for the same organisation so it's just common courtesy to ask first).

It has a silly* exhaust, but it still looks ok to me, and apparently he has a couple more too.

Some Nashville PullaPart spots

Ooooh, a Dodge Stealth! (aka Mitsubishi GTO/3000GT)

My boss had a couple (serially) at an electrical engineering company I worked at in the mid 90s. He used to hide it when the bank manager came to visit...

Interesting* fact: You can fit three 6-foot blokes in the back seat, providing they can contort themselves sufficiently.

I spotted this sad old heap at a local supermarket today, gaffer taped body repairs and homemade roof rack with a strong hint of burnt engine oil as I followed it to this parking spot. Driven by an old giffer.

Legendary. The old guy had 3 at one stage, although he's down to two now. All equally awful!

Lol, I've been in a 3000GT before, I'm not sure how you'd fit 3 adults on the backseat but anything is possible. This one was just a basemodel as far as I could tell, I really had to rush through the place.

Well, to fill in some of the details, I was sat in the left hand side, but I was bent almost double with my legs and my head diagonally pointing to the middle of the car...

Saw this 2CV in Buckingham today.  Not seen this one about before.

Also earlier in the day was briefly behind an F plate red Renault 11 while in the way to the Jag's MOT.  Looked really tidy... I'd probably have seen if I could speak to the driver but obviously couldn't give chase as I was on the way to a test!
