Walk into a showroom in the 1970's and you may well have seen these two side by side. I like the "upstairs" aspect of this particular garage.

....an audio nice pair but car-related. Heard no 1 this morning, and thought that is just one of those truly iconic bass guitar sequences, and what a brilliantly structured track from start to finish. The second the Allman Brothers......top quality in its own right, but a just a few places below the first in my book :)

Formula 1 and Top Gear

The Chain is an excellent song and sadly only a small snatch of it is heard on the Formula 1 pantomime show... Worth a listen to the full track...

Jessica is a bit like TG. Boring and repetitive after a couple of minutes...

Bit of an odd couple rather than a nice pair, the benign and the menacing from the same stable.

If that is an Iso Grifo I prefer the pagoda bonnet.

The epitome of what this thread is about a nice pair.

One is factory old english white, the other is non-standard and may even seem white if you don't see it next to something that is white. Reminds me of the old Dulux natural hints cornflower white.

Shame police cars do not have those bells still... More effective than the horrid things they have these days :twisted:

I remember when I really quite fancied an Alvis, poured over "the Mart" for months looking for a TF21 but never found one. Of course, if I knew then what I do now, I would've grabbed the best TE (or even TD) I could find - & hung on to it.
