I never have a day when I don't something interesting locally, but I rarely have the camera handy.

I saw two new Bentleys yesterday plus a 70s Rolls Royce.And a Z8. For some reason I see lots of new Bentleys locally. Here in Morris Co. NJ, there are a lot of high dollar cars, but they don't really do anything for me.
I also saw two MGBs (not including my own), but didn't snap them either.

But here are some cars that really caught me eye.

A new Ford GT (not "GT-40").
A semi-wrecked Lambo (no comment on the thing behind it).
A Vespa 400 (car)
These three are all at the same body shop)

An early Folcon convertible and old Pontiac on a trailer.

A Spitfire with hard top up on jack stands in a nearby driveway. I took 3 photos of it and put them together (it wasn't there last week....I'll look again in about a week).

What a shame for such a rare micro car (that Vespa) to become a lawn ornament like that, nice find!

It doesn't look like the Vespa's decaying to me. It's at the same body shop as the fancy Ford & the Lamborghini. Looks like a body shop where they don't mind odd projects. Maybe his? Maybe a customer's? Doesn't look like it's rotting on that lawn, to me.

Yeah, I've been by a few times. They don't leave the Vespa out in bad weather......and it looks decent up close. By the way, that Lambo hasn't moved in a few months.

But I surely have seen little cars treated badly. I used to see a Vespa on a post in front of a junkyard on the way to Lime Rock. They finally took it down.

There's a similar one in Forked River (NJ) to this day ("Cosmo's Junkyard").

We always see the car below (an Autobianachi, I think) about two miles south of New Hampshire Motor Speedway when we go to the NH Vintage.

Nice pic's. Not sure if I would transport that "barge" behind that light weight Falcon?
Cheers,
