Just had the baby Aston Martin for a couple of days again.

Had a nice run around the Hawkesbury River, stopping at Spencer for some pics, then back via Wisemans Ferry, and up Galston Gorge.

Then this morning I introduced the V8 Vantage to Australia's only TVR Sagaris. Raining and miserable, but still some half-decent shots.

Private import by Brit expat. It only got the all clear late Aug.

It ain't pretty, but damn it stands out!

Yeah I love it, one crazy looking car. Thought it would struggle without airbags?

I don't think airbags are part of the mandatory safety kit like seat belts are.

But have you seen how tiny it is inside? You couldn't fit a half-deflated party balloon, let alone some SRS.

The Sagaris was promising big things when it came out with (relatively) huge promotion a couple years ago - but until now I'd forgotten about it entirely.  I think there was this pretty cool vid of one in an offensive green colour that did the rounds a while back.

Think the financial trouble kinda killed off all the hope. And yes I don't think practicality was one of it big points. Still crazy!

Looks too much like a Lotus Elise S1

Only if you squint your eyes a lot.  :p

Nice colour - pity about the car's reputation being crap.
