Tom, that's a Bristol 411. A series 6 if I'm right.

Thanks for the lesson Eric, and am just now realizing you had
put the name up there above in the original post. :redface:

Had seen the pic, but missed the text. :) That is such a shame
that they are going out of business. Can see they make some
really beautiful cars.





Just checking out their new Bullet by the way...

I'm an avid follower of car shows and in a the Dutch ones the owner of a huge car gallery presents a different vintage car every week. And most of those older British cars suffer from the same ailment: poor build quality. Italian cars have rust and electrical problems. But his are all restored to better than factory new and all for sale.

(Wiping drool from my chin..). Yes, or a well executed restomod by a company like Singer. Alas, this will remain the stuff of dreams.....

Yes, the mere mouthing of the word Singer suggests a half a million bucks :D

But we both can imagine the result :D And they'd probably pop a Ferrari or Maserati engine in it for good measure. Sigh. I'll cry myself to sleep tonight :D

Correct.
Top one is a Redline, bottom is a Magnum.

Essentially the same drivetrain with minor performance focused, not necessarily much enhancing, differences, it was a last ditch effort to cash in on the manufacturing shut down...

So many watches, So little time...

Frans, and Eric, wanted to ask, on the quality thing, are those problems
with British, and Italian cars just a thing of the past now? Or do they still
have the reputations with new models to this day?

Would imagine they don't have the same issues anymore, but wanted to
ask you guys. :)


Oh, and Black5, really appreciate your insight on Holden, and the Redline,
and the Magnum ! :cool:

They seem extremely cool imho, and I am just hoping that somehow
Holden ends up staying in business. :thumb:

Yes Tom, this is a reboot of the 70s A110. Which I find more appealing because it's less sleek and refined. They were amalgamated Group 4 rally cars. I just checked, well preserved exemplars in full rally livery and paperwork fetch well over 200K.

:smile1: Yowza, always am learning Frans. :smileyface_hand_cla Was thinking this
was a new company, and just found out they were part of Renault.
But thought they had just started sir. Thank you for the lesson ! :)

Can see why you like the original, or originals ! ..They just have so
much character, and have so many cool curves, and lines within their
designs. Wow, amazing stuff, and kind of similar to the watch thing
with the whole reboot thing right?!

Thanks once again sir !!!
