OUT IN THE COLD We ran across this tired Com­mu­nist relic in north­ern Nor­way... Ap­par­ently too slow even for Nor­way! HERB RIBAND

TRACK BRED A perfect week­end in North Wales. The ra­zor­sharp steer­ing of my son’s Ex­ige LF1 re­calls the rac­ing her­itage of Lo­tus, while the rasp of Porsche’s …lat-six re­minds me why I opted for a low-mileage 981 Boxster S, and not the new …lat-four 718. STUART CALDER

ONE CARE­FUL OWNER Came across this ne­glected beauty in On­tario, Canada. Last road li­cence ex­pired in 2004. Words es­cape me. VIN­CENT MCNALLY

STUCK IN A TIME­WARP Ray, our en­ter­tain­ment man­ager at Palma Real ho­tel in Cuba, drives a 1952 Ford, but he snatched my Au­gust copy of CAR to check out the Audi special. He’s stuck with his old Ford as he’s not al­lowed out of Cuba un­less he …inds a wife. PAUL BUR­TON
