CHRIS’S DREAM DRIVE LIST

Classic Cars (UK) - - Welcome -

Mar­cos 3-Litre GT

‘With the Ford V6 un­der the bon­net it has the same ethos as my TVR and I think it would be fun to com­pare them’

Gil­bern In­vader

‘Yes, there’s a theme de­vel­op­ing here – an­other glass­fi­bre coupé with a Ford 3.0 V6’

Re­liant Sabre Six

‘Rare fore­run­ner to the Scim­i­tar is an­other lightweight six-cylin­der Brit, this time with the cylin­ders in line’

Alpine-re­nault A110

‘Wow, what a thing! When I started to go to car shows you’d see them and they were still af­ford­able then’

Chevro­let Corvette

‘Any model would do but the C2 Sting Ray is the best one for me’

Ven­turi At­lan­tique

‘Sexy-look­ing twin-turbo French GT is a real rar­ity and quite a per­for­mance car’

Daim­ler SP250 Dart

‘Great en­gine and quirky, chal­leng­ing styling that should be in the Tate Gallery’

Lo­tus Elite Su­per

‘For its glass­fi­bre mono­coque – Chap­man’s search for light­ness’

Rochdale Olympic

‘A pre­de­ces­sor to the TVR in many ways and an­other GRP mono­coque’

Stude­baker Avanti

‘An un­usual and fas­ci­nat­ing car. I read an ar­ti­cle re­cently which re­vealed to me that they had a glass­fi­bre body, which was a sur­prise – I’d al­ways as­sumed they were steel’
