Well caught Ajit.
It's an early 1968 Bond Equipe,
a model year for which there seem to be no pics on the web!
Honestly Bond is a brand I had forgotten about.
Now that you mention it, the windshield, wheels and clip down one-piece cowl
are distinctly Triumph Vitesse. Maybe the engine too.

That was quick ...

Well caught, Ajmat. Your answer to ID 434 is spot-on.

@ram : the pic is from the wiki site for the car ... there are just a few pics for this make on the web. And you are absolutely right regarding the cues ... which is what I mentioned in my earlier post.

Over to someone else to post an interesting car ...

Cheers,

FourWheelDrift

This lookalike of the mid/late 50's Packard and Studebaker and was a level down from the Zil limousine. Both the Zil and the Chaika were unavailable for the common public to buy. They were simply off bounds. While the Zil was only made for the Presidents and State heads, the Chaika was used for the top level officers in position in the government, therefore mostly they were black in colour. The Chaika was made from the late 50's to the early 80's and was available as a limousine, a four door convertible and also as an ambulance. It used a 5.5litre V-8 with a three speed automatic gearbox.
I kind of like these shapes as it reminds me of the late 50's Studebakers and Packards, from where the Chaika got its designing cue.
These are now collectibles as very few were made.

ID:436 Guess the make and model please.

I just hope people will not use sophisticated zoom-in tools for this one ... it's pretty easy anyway.

ID:436 is an Isuzu Gemini (known as the Stylus in the US) 1990-93.

I once test-drove a 16V "Handling by Lotus" version, but it had been abused by its previous owner and I knew I wouldn't be able to afford the upkeep. Still looking for one, it's the last "true" Isuzu car made.

ID 437:



Luckily (sadly, actually) it is missing its front badge!

Sorry for underestimating you guys.
