  3. Alright, yes, a great advert. So, for the enthusaists of four wheels, what was the little red sports car in the early part, and the older style open wheel race car about two thirds way though.

    {Oh, and he squibbed the high note at the end of the song, but, meh, you can't have everything!!}.
  4. Honda S800 !

    I remember because its one of the cars you win in Gran Turismo 3 . . or was it 4 ??? :?

  5. It's a bit blurry in the film, but yes, it's either an S-800 or the earlier model S-600. One day I must tell you how Honda developed much of their technology for bikes, away from prying eyes, in those little cars......
  6. They sure did! I have driven an S600, lovely little cars. Early models had chain drive to the rear wheels on each side, and basically a motorcycle engine and gearbox under the bonnet..in a car that weighed about 600kgs?
    The gearshift is a delight, about a 3" throw.
    Only problem is I looked over the top of the windscreen...by about 8 inches!

  7. Wanna BUY one? I photographed this little jewel in Cooma last year. The guy wants $16,000 for it, and to me it looks worth it.


  8. Lovely as it is, I'd need a convertible one Paul! :LOL:
    Whaddaya think I am, a millionaire? :p

    Regards, Andrew.
