I'm not even sure what year it is. They both retire in about 20 years so perhaps they'll sell it then. :idea:
As Nereus has indicated, it will be around the mid 1960’s so likely just over 50 years old - similar vintage to England’s real football heroes!!

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

I could only garner enthusiasm to watch the first half and despite a bit of huff and puff England didn’t look very menacing. Kane had one good chance to add to his goal tally but spurned the chance (again) and as for Sterling, based on his last few performances he really shouldn’t be in the England ...

Re: The Car Challenge

If the green car is not a standard production car, then it looks like a Sunbeam Tiger with some modifications. Ok this is obviously a bit difficult as I have never seen either car before until published in Autocar a few days ago, the green car is: 1958 Jaguar XK150 Coupe, coachwork by Ghia-Aigle Ba...

To give a clue, the manufacturer was based in Coventry
Was it built by David Brown? Maybe not put into production.
Answers to both posts Nereus, the answer is no in both cases. I must admit that they are not standard production cars and I don’t think I’ve seen them before

Although that’s a good spot, both cars originated from the UK
