Default Very Nice Car

Cool car and great information with it! Too bad steering wheel is on the wrong side (for this side of the Atlantic, anyway).

These fastbacks never did it for me. Had a chance to buy Ian Spencer's project car for next to nothing and passed on it. They just don't appeal to my eye. But neither did the fastback Mustang, 280z, or any other FB's.

paul,
if you ever drove a LeMans you would want more. they run and drive very good. they are the rarest car sold by rootes dealers. there were only 250 built with roughly half of them accounted for. a dealer had to be high on the list to even get one. they're special cars with devoted owners. if you doubt that just ask one guy on this forum about the owner of the one he is restoring. a LeMans will get a lot of attention at car shows or anywhere you park it. they draw a crowd.
