Rarest was an Alfa RZ with the roof down (doesn't even rate a mention in "how many left" - can't imagine there's more than a handful in the UK).

A real Mini on an H plate which makes it 1970?

An earlyish Range Rover (E plate so 87?)
Was the RZ black? I passed a black one three times in two days last month. Had never seen one before.

Spotted a W8 Passat Estate in Stockbride, excellent way to transport kids/luggage and massive sleeper appeal

Never realised VW sold less than 250 of these in the the UK, definitely classified as an unusual spot then !!!

Spotted a Chrysler Crossfire in Edinburgh at the weekend.

There have been some cars when they came out, I did not like but they have softened with me over time.

A Chrysler Crossfire is definitely not one of these !!

Was driving at the time but here is a sample pic of a similar car

The Evoque convertible was in our street at the weekend - I'll try and get a snap of it if it comes back.

However - before I do - are you sure - once seen it cannot be unseen :D

They're not pretty and surely can't appeal to many people. Whoever in JLR though it was a good idea should be shot

I followed a Ferrari GTC4Lusso this afternoon along the A71 and M74 . (I had to look it up as no idea what it was, beyond being a new ish model) Very subtle in grey but still a really nice looking car :thumbsup
