      You must have been in a car show then, Villeneuve. I saw a Corvette Z06 in a South Yarra showroom a couple of weeks ago, and a 1973 Vette in that new Port Melbourne showroon where they house all the limo Hummers!

        Excluding car shows and things like Classic Adelaide! On the road at different times (mostly 1980s and 1990s) I've been lucky enough to see: Jaguar XJ220, Jaguar XJR-15, BMW M1, Walkinshaw VL prototype, D Type Jaguar, Ford GT40, MG Metro 6R4, Audi quattro sport, the original Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, and probably a few others that haven't come to mind yet. Mostly one-offs or very limited run cars. Oh yes, and the sole Falcon Cobra in the UK. Saw that several times.

            Most of the sightings were in the UK, but I live here now. If you include things like the RAC Rally and Goodwood FoS then there are hundreds of rarities, but I was only including random chance sightings on the road. Can't think what the rarest car I've seen over here is, apart from during motorsport events or shows. I'd have killed to have seen the Rothmans Porsches driving on the road over here, or any of Alan Hamilton's racing Porsches on the road......

              When I lived in Tassie, I saw various cars on the road of interest that were participating in Targa Tasmania.

              Up on the GC i've seen an E-type, a Ferrari F430, quite a lot of Porsches's...........And an old 1920's Mercedes Benz.......can't remember the model

                        Yeah, they were in showrooms. From what i've been told, non of them are road legal, but the McLaren does appear on inner city streets sometimes.

                          Years ago a guy who lives near me used to take his McLaren F1 out for a thrash in the wee hours of the morning, it's the strangest thing seeing one of them screaming down the road at 3am in suburban Sydney
