A stunning TVR Tamora in a lovely metallic blue.
Perfect timing for me - only nipped out for a paper at the petrol station and it was just pulling on to the forecourt.
Thank God there's still people out there keeping these cars going; they look better than ever with so much bland new stuff about.

A black Tesla Model S P85D with 21'' alloys.
On my driveway overnight; an old friend came up for a night out. Interesting car.

They sound incredible. More like a wild animal than a car

Get this!

A Fiat 128 two door in yellow in Woking at about 8.20am this morning. It was a later model car with the plastic bumpers and square rear lights. Looked factory standard, on steelies, no mods. Jesus! At last! Someone in Surrey actually has an interesting car! 🙂

On Saturday, a Wiesman roadster; on Sunday a giallo Murcielago.

It was a decent weekend.

Whilst not 'today' I did attend an interesting car show in Akaroa, New Zealand where there were many nice cars to look at, with even a very special Alfa, or two...

(apologies in advance for the shoddy camera work)

The Montreal was for sale for a $186,000 NZD or £90,000 give or take - is that good?

And a few more worthy mentions:

1. A Yute, which they seem to love Down Under
2. A Nissan Fairlady
3. The Ford Mustang (which we were lucky enough to hire)
4. A Honda Jazz Sport - because you know you would

That Montreal looks fantastic. Not sure about the £90k though.
And what a cool hire car - that's the way to do it!
