That looks like it's about to get launched out of the back of a Hercules.

I think I've got a couple of those alloys nos in the original boxes.
(I really should sell stuff but it'd mean dealing with people).

One of my favourite cars, the Junior Zagato.

I haven't seen one since I was in my early 20s

Spotted an MG ZT 260 in the wild! Had a Mustang badge in the same place as the one pictured below, which looked awful.

I'll let him off though, as it sounded immense. Lovely waffley rumble - still fetching 10k+ on the used market, it seems....

I do still like them, although I maintain that they need another 80bhp minimum to complement the (lovely) soundtrack. A bit like tbe Passat W8.

Yes, they really weren't powerful enough, the m3 at the time had been out four years and had 340bhp, the m5 of the era had 400bhp.

I think they're cool and sound nice, and would be something fun to tool around in at a couple of grand, but not at £10k!

The version of the modular V8 that rover got was shite, 260bhp was as much as it ever made from the factory.

I’d quite like one tbh but I’d be tempted to swap in a later engine if I could.
An absolute unit

Yes, they needed to make the ZT385 into full scale production to compete power-wise - but they binned the idea after making the tourer version and a couple of saloons for management

Much more exciting with nearly 400bhp

Good spot. Cool and interesting car but £10k? I’d rather have this E55 estate.

It might be off down Mito's way; hopefully it is and he's there and he can get some pics.

I’ll look out for it as I’m repainting my rear bumper outside. Just the usual Spitfires flying right now.
How about not having a sig at all?

I forgot to post last week - I saw a duck. Or a DUKW, if you’re picky. In military livery like this:

Did you pop out for half a dozen eggs? Short-changed?
