A few more photo's to add to this thread:

First, as requested, a couple more of the 250C




Scooby's Impala


And the interior. Notice the AC unit. It's original!


Some other shots:


What detail!!


The priceless Indian that belongs to a Director of the place I work for.


A nice Bel-Air parked next to our 250 at the Juhu regroup.


The "Other" Ferrari - the 308. Much better condition than the Mondial. This one finished the entire rally.

Hey V-16, that white car is not a Karmann Ghia. It is a beautiful Porsche 356 coupe. I too thought it was a Ghia when I first saw it from a distance.

Just came across these pics I had taken of this Maserati BEFORE it was restored. You can imaging the amount of work (and money) gone into it to bring it to the condition above!!

Hi V-16
That is not a genuine VW.. its a Tempo vidal G1200 with a 1600cc 1970's VW engine, with VW front suspension and steering.. The original Vidal has two twin cyl engines.. one in front and another at the rear... This original army Vidal has front and rear steering. The owner has made a mickey of everyone who was enamoured by that vehicle..
If you want proof I can post the links to this.
