    Golfs date back to 1975, so that might be OK now - I don't know the rules for the event. I see a few other cars of similar youth.

    I'll just pick off the two W112 300SE fintails, and the MB W123 (starting 1976) towards the bottom.

    Sunbeam Alpine?

    Close! It's a 1965 Sunbeam Tiger.

    What's they gray car next to the red Jag?
    Also, a VW bug just a bit closer than the black/white Fintail.

    Ok, I'll put one chip on a 50 Plymouth.
  • fintailfintail Posts: 32,909
    I think the gray car is maybe a Ferrari 330.

    I will agree with most of that,and try to ID the "?" cars.

    Column 1:
    Top left - 911
    Black and red below Renault 5 - Lancia Fulvia
    I think the red "Talbot" is a Peugeot 104

    Column 2:
    Car below 911 - Ford/Lotus Cortina
    Low red car looks like Austin Healey
    I think the orange hatch is maybe a Lancia (which during high malaise was basically a Fiat)
    Car below red 911: Lancia Fulvia
    Volvo has a one piece windshield, would be a 544

    you know have 2 chips. It is a '50 Plymouth P-20

    2013 Acura RDX (wife's), 2007 Volvo S40 (when daughter lets me see it), 2000 Acura TL (formerly son's, now mine again), and new Jetta SE (son's first new car on his own dime!)

    Maxwell Smart, a.k.a. Agent 86, drove a red one in the first two seasons of "Get Smart." I understand that red Tiger was Don Adams' personal car.

    After M-B, the Stude dealer in my little hometown actually sold Sunbeam and Simca!
  • Tigers are fun to drive---*very* tight driver compartment, so I could never own one without serious modifications.

    Mostly, you drive it with the gas pedal in the twisties--you need a bit of skill or you'll be in the weeds.

    That's a favorite of mine, a Ferrari 2+2, either a 250GTE or a 330GTE. I think I can just about make out the headlight surround for a four headlight 330GTE like this one>

    There was a two headlight version later in the production run, most people consider it better looking but IMO the 4 headlight car looks more the part of a luxury four-place Gran Turismo.

    If I ever got to heaven (doubtful) I'd walk into a room of cars like that!

    I believe that this is a '63 Buick Wildcat. The barn find looks like a Datsun 210.

    2009 BMW 335i, 2003 Corvette cnv, 2001 Jaguar XK cnv, 1985 MB 380SE (the best of the lot)

  • stickguystickguy Posts: 13,585
    correct on the Buick. Close but no cigar on the Datsun.

    I knew the Buick, and I'd have also guessed 'B210' on the other.

    Not a fan of that era Buick--overly decorated IMHO, but good cars I think. I remember a friend when I was little whose parents had a '63 Electra 225...I loved that the radio said "Sonomatic" and the speedometer had a buzzer when the Dad exceeded 80. I remember hearing the buzzer once or twice!

    For folks who like Buicks of that general era, probably my overall favorite flick, "Hush..Hush, Sweet Charlotte" with Bette Davis, Joseph Cotten, Olivia deHavilland, and Bruce Dern features a '64 Special and two different '64 Electra 225 six-window sedans, as well as a '64 Dodge Dart that is shown briefly as the Doctor's car! ;)

    Datsun 1200?

    I say Datsun 210, just 210 with no B in front.

    RWD but no power, skip the Starbucks and save up to get a 510 instead.
