I think that Bono's. I imagine he was drooling in his rear-view mirror

He turned into a filling station after I tailed him for a bit - possibly to get away from the tailgating nutter with 33yr old brakes!

And oh yeah I love steering wheels with rivits!

Here's some classics from the king of Monaco's collection.
The 1950 wine soft top is a Cisitalia.
That seems to be where Nissan knocked off the over priced 90/91 {micra}Figaro.The green Renault Coupe is my fave.That was Princess Grace's.

By the looks of them I wouldn't think he drives 'em too much.

At least it looks like he has a garage.

I think I know that car.

If it was rhd with an original Irish reg as opposed to a zv plate, it's a unique original and still ONE (!!!) family owned Porsche 356 Convertible in very good, nicely patinated condition. Seen it around at the Porsche specialist servicing the car.

The 356 seems to have a 'GB' sticker/chrome letters on the rear bumper ?

Well this would have been a classic someday, unfortunatly the elements got to it first. This Mk5 has been sitting outside a junkyard on the Swords Road for, well I lived in Swords 6 years ago and it was there then. Back then of course it looked a lot better,it always surprised me that no ever bought it when it was good..ish.
