    My next door neighbour in the UK had the V12 in an XJS also. It replaced an E-type coupe, and he kept it for a good while but eventually had to concede it cost too much to run, and replaced it with a Honda Prelude V6.

    If I recall, and that's a bunch of years ago, that V-12 had 6 carburetors and what looked like buckets full of linkage rods and bellcranks.

    I'd prefer one a bit older- Bonham's had this for sale.

    I always find it refreshing to see a Ferrari that isn't red.

    Arrived to take out a new date in the 60s, Noticed a nice Ferrari in the garage. It was silver.
    Bit later, in Norfolk, local estate agent (..) drove a very rough 375GTB4. A friend tried to buy it off him, but no luck. I think it was actually scrapped!!

    Thinking back and with later knowledge, the 'date's' father's wheels might have been a Superfast 550 or 500. Forget the designations now.

    enquiring minds but... unusual choice for a classic there Hugh.( The hearse I mean.) Probably quite good for a bit of stealth camping in quiet places with invariably good views.

    Not actually all that vintage.... but...

    The Blastolene B-702

    Designed and created by Blastolene Brothers, the Blastolene B-702 is a 19.5 feet long and 94 inches wide handmade roadster enthused by French cars of the 1930s. Michael Leeds and Randy Grubb used a nickel-plated chassis to construct this huge machine.

    Under the hood of the Blastolene B-702 is an 11.0L GM V12 petrol engine, also famous by the name "Twin-Six". General Motors created it for its mid-size trucks six decades back. The engine pumps out a huge 650 pounds-feet of torque at just 850 rpm.

    "Although the design is obviously European, the B-702 claims to be uniquely American," mentioned Randy Grubb. "We borrowed the beautiful French curves and the classic essence of the Bugattis and Delahayes from the 1930s. We paired them with a gigantic 11L engine. This leads to the American version of these great classics."

    Just a trifle overdone.. a little restraint and it could have been great.
    1937 Cord has a better front end

    1935 Bugutti Aero is better.


    It's basicly a copy overworked.

    Overworked copy is right but the cost must be right up there.

    The hearse is my daughter and SOL's toy While it's neither a sportscar nor what we'd call a classic, they have a ton of fun with it. They have a real coffin for it with a big plastic skeleton. On Halloween they stock the coffin with their "treats" and kids have to reach in with the skeleton to get their goodies. I got the MG this winter with the intent of making it a "proper" MG. Needs a fresh engine (came with a spare) and box (ditto) and a whole laundry list of corrections (ride height, sway bar, HS-4 SUs, etc, etc) along with the usual old car stuff. Oughtta keep me busy when I'm not working on das boot.

    Somebody is obviously a fan on the classic French way of doing things.

    1927 Chevrolet Coupe Roadster sure would be a nice addition to the barn.
    Rare rear brake only model.

    I had a '28 Chev tourer for a while. 4 wheel manual brakes, rods and cotter pins. Vacuum fuel pump was a pest in hot weather. Wooden spoked artillery wheels dried out and got a bit lose so I had a couple of spares sitting in a Linseed filled tub and swapped them about.

    Look better without the poncey wheel trims and whitewalls. Plus the poseur's bonnet strap.

    A friend had an XK150 that had a hood strap. It was installed after the latch gave way @ about 90MPH & destroyed the hood & cracked the windshield. He had proper OE wires wheels though...

    Yes, the MkVII had them as well, probably the saloons either side also.

    Everyone knows this picture:




    What I find remarkable is that the 300SLR, that almost unbreakable, well nigh undriveable, beast of a motor car, has wire wheels.
