That is a fine looking car and I'm sure I've never ridden in one. I'm just a Dodge girl!

Hi Dot, this is one of those iconic British cars. Not sure if there was a Dodge in the collection, but will have a look. I must say that some of the latest crop of Dodges are great looking cars.

What a beauty.. I notice you have a liking for Classic Cars Max...

Hi Tom, I like the shape and form and craftsmanship in many of the old cars. Wouldn't want to own one though - too much PT. I make an exception for a Landy though

What a cool looking classic!

Yes, she is elegant and perhaps a bit aloof but oh so beautiful....
Great shot Max. I love the straight head-on approach.

Very classy looking car, I do have do say I am more into furutistic cars than classic cars but hey, I can respect a good car when I see one.

Wow! What a wonderful car! Jaguar is my preferred, if I would afford to have one! Lol!

Katney said...

Also magnificent!

Anna said...

Wow, Max-e that must be old, but in really good condition. The front of the car always looked to me like two eyes and the nose, lol. Thanks for sharing, Anna :)

Max-e said...

Bob the Jag is in a league of its own

Max-e said...

Photowanabe, you do tend t get an air of superiority when driving in one of these.

Max-e said...

The Fool, I appreciate the old but for my own use like the modern, which are more comfortable, less thirsty, require less maintenance etc.

Max-e said...

Sonia they are nice cars, but then I think you eventually end up paying more for petrol than you do for the car : )

Max-e said...

Katney, indeed she is magnificent

Max-e said...

Anna this is either a Jaguar Mk8 or Mk9, which would date it back to somewhere between 1956 and 1961.
It certainly does have a presence about it.

Neva said...

This is quite the car.

Could one call this an elephant-gray Jag?

Wow, what a beautiful car. I love old Jags. I just find them so elegant.
