Saw a black E type coupe on the Edinburgh bypass over the weekend, I was on the other carriageway but it looked absolutely lovely. Unfortunately it was not doing a 150mph run.

Spotted a 1960's Dodge in Edinburgh on Sat, not too sure of the make but it had a black "hood" with 382cu on the bonnet scoop. Certainly made enough noise in the traffic thats for sure :thumbsup
