Race, Classic, Vintage... whatever. There has been quite a few car shots on the forum, but as far as I could find, there is no thread dedicated to them. Post em up!

This is my first sighting of the new Nissan GTR. I spotted it on Queen's Quay while waiting for the Tall Ship meet July 2nd. I was kinda stunned to see one so I only managed a snapshot of the rear:

The following three are from the weekly summer Burlington Classic Car Show held by the Lyons:

There's a good turn out for this show and I hope to get more.

A Classic awaiting restoration near the Royal Botanical Gardens:

Copied and flipped the left side to right?

A little too obvious, especially absence of steering wheel is kinda weird but it's still a nice shot...The MK VI is probably one of my fave cars on the road right now.

This is definitely my favourite. Your work is quite fantastic IMO. I dont even like the type of car in the photo as much as some of the other here but it is the composition and style that really makes it pop for me.

Someone looking for a GNX? Not mine, but I saw this a few years back at the Woodward Dream Cruise. A great event to visit if you love old muscle cars.

Grand Nationals cars are definitely a future classic, another 2 years technically.

I remember many years ago my brother tried to convince my dad to buy a Grand National as the "family car." Unfortunately, he didn't go for it and we had to settle for a Cutlas Ciera - what a bummer :(
