It’s one of those subjective things: I’ve always thought the front 2/3rd of a C Type is gorgeous, and the rear 1/3rd looks grafted on, and…meh.
There are certain cars that look seem to look different in person from pictures, and I’ve thought the C type is one of those. Up close, it seems very harmonious.
And this looks like a fun example. Always love the Ecurrie Ecosse blue too.
Note that the rear end of a Realm is quite a bit different to a genuine C…the Realm has flat rear hatch area where as the genuine is curved under…However there are 2 recent Realms that have a modified rear end from the factory that are more rounded…Steve
Ahhh… the Kardashian treatment.
And here I was, about to peacefully drift off to sleep…
If anyone is bummed they missed out on that one, another has been teed up for you:
Reminds me of the 5mph impact bumpers imposed upon car manufacturers in the '70’s. The question used to be " does my bum look big in this?" Now it’s " does my bum look big enough in this?"
Each to his own, and of course fashions change over time, but I know what I like, and that ain’t it. One R Welch or U Andress of days gone by more to my taste.
Indeed. U Andress on the beach with the bikini, belt and knife in Dr No. A bit too much all at once for a less than 10 year old at the time. Didn’t help with mum referring to her a U Undress, as I recall…
I purchased that car on BAt and now here to learn a bit and learn a bit!
Just arrived today so I have about 10 min a the wheel. Are there any good sources of other builders of the Realm or Proteus etc here? Looking forward to this car!.. thx
