    The gentleman driving appeared somewhat confused why I was lingering and grinning like a weirdo. turns out I can't take pictures while driving too well.

    Nice - I like the long-range photo! I've got one on order, only 6 more months to wait! :lol:

    I had a test drive recently, this was the demonstrator. It was ace.

    Saw the newest Civic Type R for the first time last week, it looks both stupidly OTT and amazing at the same time. Also saw a champagne coloured Jaguar E-Type, another Cobra and for some reason I'm seeing a lot of old American V8 pick ups and SUVs around Rochdale and Oldham.

    I'm jealous! It looks like a fantastic car on paper and in the flesh!

    And aha, yeah, I was so busy going "Oooooooo" while next to it I didn't spot he was coming off, so my idiot fingers didn't drive the camera properly :p

    Hopefully I'll see it again though, it must be from around here given where it was going and where it was coming from.

    Where did you see the Champange colored E type mate, my dad bought one for his wife before my mother. And after he lost her he got rid of the car.

    I was coming home from the Dr's today, unfortunately without phone so have no image, but the was a beautiful Jaguar Sovereign parked by one of the bungalows in this street.
    I have always had a soft spot for this car, I have never owned one but driven many during my stint as a car valet.
    I may pop round tomorrow and see if it still there and grab an image or two.

    Yeah, it was great fun to drive for the 20 minutes I had. You'll see a lot more of them soon - the first batch in the country arrived at the end of April and now Ford are slowly working through the 1 year waiting list!

    I also saw this the other day on Pall Mall in London:

    Aston Martin DB5 I think... but could be a DB6?

    Pretty sure they were on their way to Top Gear, Dunsfold is only 10 miles from Guildford.

    What I think is a couple of Pontiac Fiero GTs - one with a Ferrari 308 GTB kit.
