No, no no!

I remember that one vividly, but no names from that far back. Something about the design screams Leyland.

Ah, MG (the first midget?)

Vanguard?

Hi, jandri

I thought I had seen a car with a shape like the image on a local classic car show,
is that Volkswagen Karmann Ghia ?

Funny about the VW. I thought it looked like a Karmann Ghia then thought "NAH, too easy, must be a trick."

Sorry, burps... but ical_everon got it right!

Anyway, both get the prize either for their quick reflexes (burps) or major precision (ical_everon).

Congrats.

*offers two virtual champagne to the winners*

p.s.: the Datsun was fairly easy to discover... And I only saw it briefly in GT4 and GT Legends...

Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, Carozzeria Scaglietti, indeed. (AKA the GTE)

You can see it is a GTE because of the battery. The racing one had it in the rear.
The Lusso had it in the rear as well.

File attach possibility has been removed. You have to upload a picture to some image hosting site or Dropbox/OneDrive/GoogleDrive and post a link or embed the image (Insert Image).

Default Pizzaman is welcome to my turn at this point.

I only answered the one above because I recognized the carburetor assembly.

I didn't expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition...

I'll post again when I have arranged a reliable image resource to provide clues...

Hahahaha, well, I'm not around too often so would be a bit uneasy.
However, if you need a file-host, use this: http://imgur.com/upload

You can either select a (disguised/deformed) image from your HD or drag one there.
It will give you a link to the image, and you can link that here.

It will also call it gcywcgyvwgvccv.jpg --> so no clues given.

Should be easy.

Very fond of the Austin-Healey 100M, I was owned by one decades ago and while it cost me plenty in speeding fines and maintenance it was the best of the 4 cylinder Healeys.

Would that be the rare Ferlinghetti Tasman series 2 car? They were remarkable for using 1/3 of a Ferrari V-12 tucked into the back of a pram. It was not often seen at events due the team's infamous sense of direction.


However, I must say it looks quite a lot like the Lola Mk4 with a Climax 4 cylinder installed.

But on 2nd viewing it seems to be the Cooper T70 Climax.

Somewhat larger than a BT4, I'll give you a very vague clue, Formula Libre.

"At the end of the 1962 season two of the (MK4 Lola) cars were fitted with 2.7 litre Coventry Climax engines and taken "down-under" for the Tasman series. Driven by Surtees, Tony Maggs and Masten Gregory, the highlights were Surtees taking the laurels at the New Zealand GP in January 1963 and Lakeside in February as well as finishing second in the Australian GP in the same month."

Would this be one of the Lola MK4s mentioned above, perhaps fitted to Formula Libre Spec?

The rear chassis and suspension seem to be typical Lola design with the Springs/ shocks mounted aft of the axle, as seen below on another MK4 chassis.

Not one of the Tasman Lola's.
I remember pretty 'Yeoman Credit' (IIRC) cars well, particularly Masten Gregory spinning his on the warm up lap at Sandown Park.
