Saw a new white Porsche Panamera the other day. Went by me so fast I had no time to get a photo. Not much on Volvo's as I am from the USA but always like these. Not sure if it is a 1600 or 1800 but looked really nice.

Today seen a stunning Mitsubishi Colt Galant GTO GS-R(well, that's a awful long name) parked in front my neighbor's door. 

1970-1977, factory flares, engine should be 2 litre twincarb

Also want to present my daily Celica ST205, itself is a very common car but awd ST205 version is very rare in Thailand or States.

My chum still has one, it has a 5.0 V8 though..

Had one when I was an apprentice.........IIR it had a 1197 side valve engine and the windscreen wipers were vacuum driven which meant they almost came to a stop when going up a hill!

 

As this is about cars seen in Thailand, I did see a Ford Consul Classic 315 a few years ago in Chiang Rai and was tempted to stop and have a closer look at it, but didn't!! Wish I had now.

My chum still has his Ford Consul Capri which has a 5.0 ltr V8...😊..Think it's a '65, perhaps the best UK Ford ever designed, well at least for the era....

At the time I heard it was more or less a "stopgap" car coming at the time when the Ford Anglia was being phased out, and that the design owed much too its American influence.

 

The only problem with it was that the early ones had the Ford 1340 cc engine, which was a dog and a bugger to start as it had the same engine as my Ford Cortina Mark 1 and I eventually changed that out for a 1500 cc version, although I do believe the later versions, although only made for a few years, did have the 1500 cc Ford engine in them??

1967 Corvette with the "stinger hood" which was originally only for big block cars. You either love'em or hate'em. I think they are cool.

The new 2020 mid-engine ‘vette is pretty badass...
