Ford Capri

A serious contender and a very fine sports and rally ride.

And some were even sold here on occasion. And the later ones were sold at the dealers here.

Never lucky enough to have one but my friend was and loved it so, yeah!

It became clear in the making of this that I need many more Escort pics than are in inventory… way too much media library scrolling going on!

There it is. The real one. A legend, driven by a legend, in a legend.

It gets no better.

507

The 507 looks so light and nimble in person… and it is seriously lovely.

The 2019 Z4.

I must say this thing certainly does look the business. I bet it can act like it looks, too.

But, what about the Z5? Ah! Some are calling this the Z5.

Wait! It’s a Toyota Supra!

I have spent long, grueling hours gathering evidence in support of the opinion held by some people that holds that the Z4 GT3 can indeed go up hills of significant size and will not, as suggested by others, wheeze and leave volk stranded at the bottom. The Z4 GT3 is a motorized conveyance; conceived and constructed by tiny, adorable gnomes in handcrafted lederhosen at the Bavarian Motor Works, located in München, deep in Freistaat Bayern, itself located in beautiful southern Deutschland.

I have located three compilations of events that show a series of fairly competent attempts to reach the top of the respective hills. Here they are:

So, I think that sews that line of questioning right up.

A lightly tamed version that was made for and subsequently made available for rent by the Hertz Corporation… hence the H appendage. Lots of track days happened as a result. Along with further cementing of the legend. I was not old enough to drive, being just 11. Dammit.

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!

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.

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
