I'm pretty sure that we can find many nice wheels inside Beoworld members!

Here you got mine. A lovely weekend saloon. A Jaguar MK2 3.4lit 1961

Hope you like it.

Oh, this is gorgeous!  My Grandma had exactly the same Jag and I felt like a princess in it.  Actually hired one as my wedding car when I got married.  I love vintage cars, and this one's a beauty!  

Not putting up a pic of mine until it's been washed.  Could be a while.

That Jag is beautiful!

Cars have always been a huge hobby of mine, here are two current ones.

Here is my vintage - 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

And here is the Blue Steed! - 2010 Honda Accord Coupe. I know its not vintage, but I am in love with this thing Smile

Love it !!

However... I'm afraid my regular car is a bit boring in comparison.  You all have lovely classics - I have a teutonic oil-burner, built to carry the owner in the back !! 

2012 model 730LD.   Does everything it needs to, very well indeed.   Here's a pic of it on the day i took delivery last September.  If you look hard enough in the background you can see the salesman rubbing his hands together and smiling at the thought of his commission bonus.....

Boy oh boy, what a nice selection so far.  We currently have 9, yes, that's NINE cars at home at the moment!  Classics list =

1973 Lotus Elan Sprint DHC - 15th from the last ever built.

Rally prepared Renault Alpine A310

1980 Renault Alpine A310 - this was one of 7 Alpines bought and used as research tools by Lotus (for development of the Esprit) and DeLorean (for development of the DMC12).  The engine was modified by Lotus from 2.7L and is now thought to be 2.9L but has never been confirmed.  Only believed to be 6 of these remaining.

1969 Daimler V8 250

Fiat Dino 2400 Coupe - 2.4L Ferrari engined of course (purists have heated argumants over this one!).

OMG!!!  Some truly awesome cars on here!  And absolutely love the 62 Coupe de Ville.  (I'm a retro fan.  Love anything from the 50s, 60s and 70s.)

No way I'm putting up a pic of my car now.  It's a BMW... but not in this league.

Might have to post my wish-list instead.  *sigh*

Keep 'em  coming!!   Smile

I am indeed...  Which is why i don't buy British. Indifferent

Funny old lot, us English, wanting reliability and build quality in our everyday cars.....  which is why i buy German!

That said, Japanese cars are screwed together very well on the whole.

I see a classic car, or anything French or Italian as a labour of love / hobby car.  You know it's going to go wrong and you don't mind having to fix it - and there's always an element of trepidation in your mind every time you turn the key.  Not what I want from a car at my stage in life, being old and all that...

May i Just say there are some beautiful cars posted on this thread.  You've all got fantastic taste!

480ES !!  I had one of the first ones into the UK (i bought it used back in 1992 - about 5 years old, but the number plate started D480 *** - which were assigned to the 6 press vehicles)

A lovely car - but did suffer from water ingress through the bulkhead.  Pop up lights were super-cool for the time too!

My sister recently bought a so called smart car , the only smart thing about it is the name. It's the most stupid pointless car ever made IMO. There's no boot for starters just a shelf above the rear engine , you could just about fit a hamster cage there except they'd get cooked by the noisy little sewing machine engine. Then there's the Lamborghini like performance 0 to 60 in a week and a top speed that lets you get cut up by a milk float.

I wish we had kept this one, it's a Lea Francis roadster. My father had a metallic blue one of these garaged for as long as I can remember up until the day he passed away - it never moved for at least 40 years & was sold by his 2nd wife on his death. I don't think I need to spell out my thoughts on that little episode.

Unfortunately I drive a lousy BMW 320D estate - one of the most insipid/worst cars I've ever owned...

He also had one of these - it's an Austin Sheerline sedan. I hired one of these for my wife to travel in on our wedding day & it can still match the luxury of most of the best on offer today!

An absolutely beautiful car.

Funny, that you mention your car as "boring". Despite all the nice cars in this thread, your 7 Series is the one I would like to have the most. It is absolutely gorgeous.

Saab turbo very nice - I nearly bought a modern Saab but sadly they gone bust and didn't want to risk it. If anyone saw the Top Gear tribute, it nearly shed a tear to my eye. 

I ended up buying a BMW 320d Touring 2007 model. I'll post some pictures after its had another wash!

Why 'obviously'? What's wrong with it?

The 900 still is a perfect day-to-day car...

My 1988 900 Sedan...has now run 499000km, first engine, first gearbox, still in daily use. Converted to run on LPG. In daily use.

And why not... you don't even need to keep a spare ignition cassette in the trunk to keep you from getting stranded, unlike those driving later models Stick out tongue

Here's my daily driver, same age but with only 340.000 km on the clock. It has given such great service for the last 6 years that I might even change the oil one of these days!

Here is a picture of the BMW we hired (the only one I have ever driven) for the trip to Struer (point J) taken at point (F) on what was quite a tour ! We ended up at Skagen (the furthest point North at the urgings of the Beoworlders from Copenhagen (O), and point (B) is where we met Soren and his dad and their dual collection of B&O kit !

In the background the humps you can see are ancient burial mounds ... and the picture was taken from the top of the Danish equivalent of Hadrian's wall -- fascinating stuff !
