And on the honor system don't cheat by going to the file name or source.

If you have to then it is only fair to drop out of that round and just watch. HOwa?

In coupe or rag top one of my all time favorite cars

Do try to keep up.

Second one looks like some sort of Pommy plastic fantastic.

Ha - that's a "Rochedale" (sp?), I think. Us old Porsche 356 nuts used to use that car to stump others about "what model is this?"
British?

Let's try this one:

Yep, a Rochdale Olympic - one of the very first fibreglass monocoque cars.

Is that a Matra Djet?

Aha! Another Matra - a 530? My favourite was always the Bagheera with three abreast seating.

Yepper! '70' Opel GT & lots of fun!

Don't know why you have trouble - I use FireFox.. & here's your link

can't say I recognize it - but I claim no real obscure auto expertise.. Clarkey has that title! ;-)

FWIW, to post, I right click on the image & copy the URL. Then I go to the forum post pic menu, choose the "From URL" tab, paste the URL in the blank & de-select "Retrieve remote file and reference locally". Click 'OK' & it's done!

The URL is (usually) in the format of http://www.somewhere.com/pic.jpg
your example (pic, only) was http://i578.photobucket.com/albums/ss226/John_Meachen/Autoworld%20Brussels/SAM_1306.jpg

The man gets a stuffed koala Y>. A beautiful car isn't it ? Pure sculpture.

Nah, a ripoff of a Disco Volante, Maserati and contemporaneous projects. BTW Koalas taste like scorched minties.

BTW anyone for a Facel Vega or Ischotta Franchini?

1946 Disco Volante

It looks like shared design concepts for 1946.
