Sunday 'Top Trumps'

Sunday ĎTop Trumpsí

This game is about car spotting on a Sunday morning between the hours of 07.00 to 12.00. The rules are:

1. The cars have to be interesting (old or new) to your average petrol head residing on this forum.

2. You canít include your own car(s).

3. Canít count the same car twice if seen on the same day.

4. The car has to be spotted on the road or parking lot, no spotting at museums or car shows allowed.

5. The game is only played on a Sunday (therefore seeing something interesting on any day of the week other than Sunday is not counted).

6. Game is based on trust, photos will be nice but sometimes difficult to take so posts without photos will be okay.

7. No prizes for the best spots but Iím sure recognition will be measured on the number of ĎThanksí awarded.

Totally agree. I admire the guys who are driving their specials on greasy, salt ridden UK roads.

For what it's worth, last Sunday I saw an i8, a Cayman and a 911.

Nothing super special, but my god does the i8 ever look amazing in black.

The i8 is fast (in electric mode) heading down the road to obsecurity much like the old M1. I haven't seen one on the road in months.

It does look good though but I've only seen them in dual colours.

That's the one. I wish they were more popular, I can't imagine that having the black, white and blue is helping sales at all.

3 easy steps to poor taste:


1. Wrong wheels, 2. Wrong colour, and 3. Stupid carbon fibre garnish

I'm obviously not living in the same level of neighbourhood you live in. Most expensive vehicles in my neighborhood are SUVs, trucks and a couple of Corvettes.

Indeed, the area seems to be a hot spot for expensive or unusual cars. I have even seen a RS200... I am hoping that I see it again but this time on a Sunday!

Oh, we have the usual SUVs and pickups. Bentley SUVs too.
