Isn't ID:708 a Facel Vega Excellence? 1957, if I'm not mistaken?

EDIT 1: That was definitely too easy.

EDIT 2: When you post something as widely recognizable as that, you should consider a drastic crop of the picture. It would simply make the game somewhat more challenging. In this particular case I would leave the rear as the only reference point.

Not nearly as easy as the Facel Vega, if you ask me. ID:709 is a Costin Amigo - one of 2 units left unfinished in 1972 which was eventually completed in 1979.

ID 709:
Trying Sir Ram touche here :
The car is definitely Costin Amigo, here's the original pic
A 1970 British Car with a 2L engine and gearbox from Vauxhall. Only 8 were sold (hence not sure whether this goes as per the rules here)

Reading out tech specs is not the Sir Ram touch, thats the "Enough time to google the car name" touch.

Sir Ram touch would go something like this.

This is the unknown Costin Amigo. A British car with blah blah blah.

The green warehouse door in the background is the Stockmeup warehouse at Identifyshire in UK. Once famous for stocking pumpkins, it is now used as a location for photographing obscure cars.

The car behind the Costin is the ABC Sedan from XYZ company. Very rare, but easily identifiable by the fact that it always looks ready to fall apart.

The red doors behind the warehouse are the house of Mr. Anthony Kaun hai, a well known automobile enthusiast who lives here for the very purpose of catching obscure cars while they're being photographed.

@Ram - Sir, please forgive us. This is just an attempt to make the thread's mood lighter. We have tremendous respect for your knowledge, and in no way is this meant to be demeaning.

ID:710 is a Renault Corolale manufactured between 1950 and 1957. The grille was quite revealing (as was the, uhm, background vehicle) but I'm ashamed to admit that I hadn't heard of this model before.

EDIT: Predatorwheelz, the 'Sir Ram impression' made my day.

I'll be damned! I feel like a four-year-old trying to pronounce 'revolver' without saying 'levorvel'. Sorry about that, at least you can be sure I didn't simply copy-paste the name here.

ID:711 appears to be a Coronet manufactured by Coronet Cars Ltd between 1947 and 1951 and equipped with a British Anzani 328cc engine. I must admit it looks quite cute.

ID:711 Spot on Double mac, it's indeed a Coronet.
Created by Microcar designer David Gottlieb in 1957, this is reputed to be the "world's finest three wheeler".
She runs on an 18 bhp 2 cylinder 328cc engine, and has a glassfibre body.
Quite a sought after classic microcar today, very few examples survive.
More of her on The Coronet Microcar
