If you were confused, Rich, the Metal bit under the carpets of the Galaxy is called a 'floor'.

Most yank tanks have one fitted.

Been lucky to see some eye watering exotica this year at various places but the Lola GT Prototype currently in captivity at Brooklands really caught my eye, it's so small and pretty...

I love the blue c type.
Even if I had the money to own one I’d still have a garage full of minis!

I've not actually seen it 'in the metal' yet, but I'm so pleased to see how good a job Porsche specialist Andy Prill has made of Pandora. Photos show it now, and still being built in the paddock on its debut in '64 Whitsun trophy

It really couldn't have gone to a better home (even if it took him several years longer than he planned!)

Lets hope the Coldwell breaks cover soon.....

Had this in the shop earlier in the year for some extensive suspension work. First time I've ever seen one up close, bit like an Imp on steroids.....................

My car of the year 1962 Riley Elf survivor car, 3rd production assembled shell and 67th finished car. Probably will be Downtonised to make it more able to keep up with todays driving conditions.
