ooh a new TVR!

Coming next year to Yurrop and Japan if you have a spare £90,000, which is currently $121,338. Not bad! It has a 5 liter Cosworth V8 with 500bhp and a 6-speed manual for those rear wheels. 50/50 weight distribution, too, woo hoo!

If only I was filthy stinking rich.

If only I could still see.

Dream on.

This came in via Ultimatecarpage. Great site!

One of the prototypes…

A Giulia under the skin, with a 1600 or 1750 motor.

So, as it turns out … my dear friend Cathy was all excited about seeing her cousins from Ireland on their first visit. She came over with pics a plenty in pad and there was a GE map of their home back in Eire and my keen eye for anomalies noted that it was labeled C. Bradley Motorsport.  I said… wait… what? Cathy is a Bradley but cars are not her thing.

And there were photos of them all taken as you do for such a grand thing and she says oh yes that’s Camillus, he’s a great fun guy and is a rallye driver and has a car business.

This leaves Ig gob-smacked. I love rallye but I am not right so I had to see… he’s a Ford guy! Been a driver for decades! And has custom rallye car parts in his company’s name and will make you a whole car from scratch… a real body-in-white. Good gracious! That was so nice, so cool.

Small world, innit?

It’s gorgeousness… knows no bounds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

(expect to pay at least one point five million dollars for a survivor.)

Was getting more pics and ran across this which I had to share…
Check out the license plate.
And really local volk, check out the license plate frame.
This car was from right here in town! Bought my bug from Pray. The collection is actually housed in Stamford (a good chunk at least) but Pray is Greenwich to the core.

BTW, there was one 507 Serie II (forgot to put Serie II in the title) built in 1960. Yes. One. You won’t find it in the literature. Why I’ve no idea. It, fittingly, also lives in town, owned by a very amiable pilot. It drove in to the shop one day just to visit Jean Louis. I touched it! And, although it drove in, it was the single cleanest car I have ever seen and I have judged National concours … jus’ sayin.

1958 BMW 507 Series II Roadster 70156 – sold for $2,420,000 Offered from the Pray Collection. Two owners from new; single ownership since 1972. Offered with original engine, number 40167, verified by BMW Classic. Factory Rudge wheels, a Becker Mexico radio, and a factory hardtop. Impeccable purity and provenance. Auction Source: Amelia Island 2014 by RM Auctions

Herewith I present the cars that caught my eye in July 2016… LOL might even catch up one of these days.

 

Whoa, eh? I hope your taste matches mine.

Enjoy.
