Saw an Austin Allegro(didn't know any survived) yesterday,that really nice mustard/orange type colour the Marinas came out in, It had a "Mack Truck Bulldog" mounted on the bonnet like a leaper. Made me smile.

Used to do warranty work and servicing on those. Strange but true fact about Allegro`s they were more aerodynamic going backwards than forwards... also if not careful jacking them up you could pop the windscreens out. other than a square steering wheel they were not too bad. Well compared to the other offerings in the mid seventies.

It doesnt look like i can add pics on the mobile version of the page so i will tell you now and add the pics when i get home! I run an estate home maintenance program for a custom home builder. So i see all sorts of flashy cars in the garages. But this house takes the cake! In the garage you can find a convertible rolls royce. A regular rolls royce, an aston martin dbs convertible, a mercedes g wagen. A new range rover, (and from popular hot rodding magazine) Hurricayne, a 1966 chevy biscayne! Must not forget the motorcycles.... some fancy Harley and a boss hoss! I think the homeowner might possibly be a gearhead deep down!!

Bugatti Atlantic, or a replica, in dark blue drove past my house north of London, Ontario. Utterly incredible to see such a thing on the road.

Oh, I saw one on the road earlier this week. They are head turners. I forgot they have 4-doors.

Default 1960 FB Holden

Saw this Holden Special at the hardware today, going by the paint condition and age of the driver I would think it is a one owner,original condition car. I followed him about 1 km before we parked. Bloke could hardly walk,no wonder he drove so slow.

And no I didn't stalk him to get a photo,we were going to the same place,it was still there when I came out so snapped a couple.

Actually I saw two yesterday, either of which I wouldn't mind adding to our fleet -- or both.

First I found myself behind a new Hyundai Elantra, all angular and menacing looking (can you imagine a menacing Hyundai?). It looked pretty good in silver but mine would have to be Black.

Then in the afternoon I saw a 2005 or 2006 Subaru Baja! I had to drive around the WalMart lot to get a better look! I've never seen one before. I LIKE it!

You guys over in London are holding out on us. When I was over there for the FeelXE event, I saw more Ferraris, Rolls, Maseratis, etc than I care to admit to. So, where are the pics guys? LMAO. Giving you guys a hard time. I should have taken some of my own pics.
