Vauxhall Viva Gt & Lotus 7 of sorts

OK, not exactly spotted, more like arranged, am in Kingston ON for work, and, the guy who originally owned my Viva gave me the number of this guy who has - bizarrely - another Gt (remember they estimate about 65 left worldwide of 4606 ever made) and this is the second I have found and he - the original owner found at least three. It is a POC but, there are a few things I will pull, notably the wire harness and some trim. Not likely till the spring. However in addition to this, a few odd tractors there was a Lotus kit car RHD apparently originally from South Africa and smuggled into the country in a container of parts - no engine - ever - yet? Parked next to a Fiat 850 and two Harleys (can you say eclectic) This out in the country surrounded by a 180 lb Great Dane, some other mutt and a chihuahua - and, the guy had never used a cell phone, a computer or the internet. Made me think of Billy - I don't know why. :devilgrin:

Nice JP, a customer who comes into my place of work, his son has a superformance cobra that was imported legally into Canada but apparently they are illegal to bring in now and it may be due to our safety requirements. The 7 clone possibly a Birkin?

Just finishing the thought - lots of cars out today, mostly Detroit iron, Walked out of church and there was a guy with a '69 Firebird. Bought from the original owner in 1976, never repainted, never restored, lovely! and then we took the Ferry to Prince Edward County on the way home - driving out of Pciton saw a lovely red TR3 with roof up - not able to get a pic, but, gorgeous!
