TBH I wouldn't say no to most of the stock.

As a kid I loved the Alitalia liveried Stratos', awesome.

You mentioned the Hispano Suiza, that takes me back to my youth, My mum used to be the accountant at a firm of Antique car restorers in the deepest Lincolnshire fens from about 76-79, I used to go up there all the time and look at the work in progress or stock and dream.

I remember they had some amazing stuff, Hitlers Merc limo with 3 inch thick bullet proof glass, 1 of the 2 surviving Auto Union racers from about 1910, loads of very early Rolls and Bentleys (1910 era), Hispano's and lots of other very early stuff (pre WW1). I've forgotten most of what they had over the years.

I was introduced to classic/prestige and sports cars at a very early age which probably explains why I still love cars more than anything else today

Still looking Al! Still tempted!

There is some cool stuff - I didn't know King Hussein drove a Ford Sierra - well I guess if its good enough for the Essex boys, it must be good enough for a King!

Only if it's an XR4i or a Cosworth

But it would have to be the dark brown over the burgundy, and the 3 door base model too

An alternative could be the burgundy sills, bumpers and lower panels with a silver top half, pure class

Add the check grey cloth over replica grey vinyl interior and that little seatbelt motif in the centre of the instrument cluster for safety AND not forgetting the 2-spoke steering wheel.

Now that would be Kwality with a KAPITAL 'K' dude!!

Don't knock the good ol' Sierra, back in the mid/late 80's when I first passed my test, a silver 2.0 Ghia was my dream everyday car. I had to make do with a bright yellow 1976 1.6 Chrysler(Talbot) Alpine - Now that was class
Or it was until the clutch went and I found out it would cost more to repair than the 100 I paid for the car

Ahhh you see when I passed my test in '88 I really wanted a Escort RS Turbo (in White to match my socks) or a Vauxhall Cavalier SRi - I got a '66 Beetle (which I drove for 6 months and then decided to 'restore' - we did about a 3rd of the welding and then it got nicked) followed by a variety of cars including several Astra Vans, several Mini's (fave was a bright Orange one with a stage 2 head and Pico Shotgun exhaust), a baby blue Triumph Toledo (with a wooden dash), a Talbot (like the one in Als gallery but in beige with beige interior - ughh!), Sierra (Burgundy with check grey cloth over replica grey vinyl interior and that little seatbelt motif in the centre of the instrument cluster for safety AND not forgetting the 2-spoke steering wheel)...as I said, KWALITY!!

I never actually owned any of these cars thank God they were just passing thru - but the next car I actually owned was the ultimate repmobile, Cavalier MK2 GLSi in White - what a motor!

T1f, a Beetle was a pretty cool first car.
White cars were definitely cool in the 80's and early 90's. I only owned one, but it was the ultimate cool pulling machine.
I bought it in 92, and it was a 91, H Reg, Mk5 I think (the last shape anyway) Ford Escort XR3i (1.6 EFi) Cabriolet, white with a white power hood, and thick blue velour seats. But the best part was that it's previous owner was the one and only Dave Bartram, the lead singer of Showaddywaddy . That was the best pulling machine ever I replaced it in 94 with a 92 calibra, and that was a bag of nails.

Dino sold for 90,000. It was a nice one - but prices seem to be on the up.:thumbup:
White 308 didn't sell!

90,000 is a lot, it seems like the Dino has appreciated considerably more than I realized.

90K is average for a mint recently restored Dino. The place I bought my 328 from had a couple of Dino's up for 90K last year and one with 6000 miles for 109K. They all sold, but I don't know how much they went for.
