Thanks Spike.
By the way is that Johnny Cash giving me the finger?
Lucky Americans they have/had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Stevie Wonder.
While I am out of cash with no hope and never believed in wonders.

On topic how about this one with some famous rear lights.

It looks like Japanese in spite of Californian plates. Some sort of modified Honda S800?

Edit: Alright, digging a bit further into contemporary cars brought a better guess. The rear looks like a Lenham GT.

The car was named after the owner of the team that built it, who is a successful driver in national competitions in touring, rally and GT. The car was prepared for Le Mans but unfortunately it was never engaged in an actual race. Nevertheless there is a page on that car in a well known website dedicated to LM prototypes.

like I said ... might be too easy ...
It indeed is a Mistral II body, mounted on a 1952 MG TD chassis.
Reputedly the build took place in 1958.

Congrats and your turn Tkrau

Ecclesley yeah that's Johnny Cash, it's a pic from his Legend of... album. I unfortunately started enjoying his music very late in his career but have amassed quite a collection of his cd's. Not a fan of country music but there's just something about his voice and the way he sings.


here's the next one.

1964 Studebaker Lark was built from the factory with a 283 Chevrolet engine.

I had a Lark station wagon many years ago. It had a 3.something six and the roof over the luggage area slid under. I could use a Primus to make tea and bacon butties without setting fire to the headlining.

1963-64 Studebaker Commander. The version you show looks like one often seen on Pacific Raceway and other West Coast tracks in Vintage SCCA A/ Sedan events. That car is a recovered and restored race car. I forget the owner's name.

The engine is by Studebaker and was quite stout enough at the time.

Studebaker went through some model and name changes at the time this car was made and dropped the Lark name. Studebaker used Commander for this one even though it is essentially an evolution of the Lark series body. It seems common online and in some magazines to call this type by several names so I guess the confusion continues, eh?

What's the word Spike?

Close enough, as Spin Doctor noted they dropped the Lark name, this one is 1964 Studebaker Daytona that was built for racing http://www.flickr.com/photos/vintage...7607658643415/
That's probably one of the few early to mid sixties cars I'd like to own someday . your turn petrol

No idea...after awhile, cars from that era all start to resemble each other to me, and I still think it looks like an early Morris.
