This was probably the last Fiat X1/9 I saw in the rust

This one is an altogether different animal, and a nice colour.
Would cause a reasonable stir in the supermarket car park, very rare sight on the roads of the UK now.

Our family doctor had an X1/9. He zoomed through the bus station one day - no car access there - smashed into a bus, smashed the car and smashed both his legs. A girl I worked with was in the bus station and saw it happen.

Not a new picture, but one of a car I bought for my daughter because the colour matched the opulence of the model, the nearest to proper Gold I have owned and she fell in love with the furry interior!! :-D

Rather than change the title, I'll just bludgeon off topic. Not that keen on green cars although its bright enough. Don't know if its a special edition thing of the MR2, it had a quote from Colin McRae on the front "If in doubt, flat out".

I reckon if it moves me to click the shutter its unusual enough to catch my attention, but I definitely wouldn't say it was one of my favourite colours.

About the only slight variation to the exterior rendering of 99.9% of all cars since they first hit the road in the late 19th Century, has been the odd two-tone paint job.

The custom brigade of course and a bit of vinyl wrapping gives unlimited possibilities, but as far as what comes out of the factory....boringly conventional, and we have had a proliferation of dull offerings in recent years, still very much in vogue, although with the odd exceptions.

VW have recently issued some images of a "Near production ID5 GTX" in camouflage to be seen in the flesh at the
IAA Munich Motor Show on September 7th 2021.

Maybe they should offer the camouflage as a factory option :-D

I can't help wondering where you would have to park it, in order for the camouflage to be effective? :-D

I presume that is the new beetle based pickup kit but I have to ask, what's the point? Surely not big enough to replace the caddy? :?
