Summernats – Noisy and/or interesting things that drove by my window take II

johnboy 5 January 2007 18

Well you all enjoyed yesterday’s efforts so much how could I deny you another go at it (especially as my Summernats buddy appears to have dropped off the face of the earth so it looks like I won’t be going after all). Anyone with stories or picture of the ‘Nats over the weekend should email them to and we’ll see where it goes from there.

The game is to guess the make and model of all the vehicles photographed going down Northbourne Avenue this afternoon between 2 and 3pm.

What's Your Opinion?

Kramer, there are two VL’s above.

There is a silver and green VL turbo with ‘Chasa’ graphics down the side. Check it out in the link I provided, but stuffed up the hyperlinking.

There is also a light metallic blue Walky batmobile.

The low-slung open roadster is most definitely a Caterham 7. Love the goggles!

snahon that is a gtr – the last one is a gtst. you can see the gtr badge and the flared rear guards.

The silver green VL Commodore is most certainly not a turbo. It is as MrM stated a Group A SS, but it more than that. It is a Walkinshaw Group A SS Commodore – this car has the original body kit and colour for a Walkinshaw, and most likely the original (or improved) 5L V8 engine. Also the number plate TWR… (Tom Walkinshaw Racing) gives it away too.

No.4 is a Ford Zephyr (Pommy). They can be made to go verry well.

4. Looks like a 50’s/60’s Ford Customline .. My grandfather had one back in the early 60’s but the grill is all wrong.

Funny to see a Futura and the Batmobile mentioned. George Barris used the ’55 Lincoln Futura for the Adam West TV batmobile in the late 60’s.

The green VL is most certainly a turbo – what an absolute weapon it looks like too!

Geeee, that black RA Rodeo looks surpisingly like Ralph’s……..

the green/silver VL commodore is a VL Calais Turbo.. the hooded lights give it away.
Of course, it mayNOT be a turbo, but chances are it is.

and that low-slung thinggy may be a clubman..

Jey, confiscate his penis? That is harsh!

I like that silver hearse-looking cadillac-ey kinda station wagon thing.

But ford capris are total bitch mobiles. If you are driving them just stop it. stop it now. s-t-o-p.

Partner wasn’t very good at the guessing game at all, going to have to confiscate his penis.
