The multi-hued livery is definitely an acquired taste, but there is no question that the Volvo 1800ES is one of the most practical budget classics out there. With Bosch fuel injection these ES variants are a more modern interpretation of the original formula that gained fame in original coupe form, while the wheels from a later model are an interesting touch. Despite some corrosion in the floorpan, this is still a relatively solid Swede. Bidding on Bring a Trailer with less than a day to go is still at credit card money, making us wonder what fate will befall this wagon when the hammer falls tomorrow.

With only 111 vehicles produced, the HRG 1500 is a rare sight on both sides of the Atlantic. The model first appeared the same year that Nazi tanks rolled across the Polish frontier putting a halt to sales for the duration, but it returned after the war as an anachronism in the face of more modern machines like Jaguar’s XK120. This particular example competed in numerous SCCA events in period and then found its way into the hands of a former works driver for Bristol and Frazer-Nash. With a recent engine overhaul and other details attended to it’s an interesting alternative to the more commonly encountered models from better known competitors. It crosses the block next month at H&H Auctioneers Imperial War Museum sale. With an estimate of £60,000-70,000, it should appeal to the anorak that wants to stand apart from the crowd. Does that sound like you?

In regards to the critique of the Mazda Cosmo Sport acutioned of at Artcurial Paris, why does the non Cosmo Sport educated writer say "its a shame about the speaker pods on the rear shelf" when they are factory, and say "the seat vinyl is a bit baggy" when its not factory, should be houndstooth?
