    Unrepresented Frogs

    I was just thinking, we do have a good mix of cars here on Aussiefrogs, but what are we missing from the current local lineup?

    Laguna II
    607 (okay, these don't sell like hotcakes, but the 605 and XM never did either )

    Don't think we have any 206 1.4s, 307 HDis, Clio 1.6s, Megane Cabrios, Xsara 2.0s or any D9 406s. What else is missing - current and previous models?

    Granted there could be lurkers.

    Cheers,

    Justin

    One of the things I like about mucking about on odd cars - every now and then I discover something I have never heard of. I think I now have to have a Monica in the collection. Reminds me of a french 4 door Jenson Interceptor (of which a Fergason 4wd version can sit next to the Monica)

    Looks a bit like a 4 door 60s Aston Martin from some angles (something about the rear guards)

    "All of its cars from the 1.1 litre 205 through the ugly duckling 309 to the 2.2 litre 505 GTi had a rightness and a righteousness about them that turned every humdrum drive into a journey. Someone, I once wrote, in the bowels of Peugeot understands handling and how a chassis should feel." - Jeremy Clarkson

    It looks like a bigger 4 door Elan 2+2.

    Surely the most notable missing car is the Bugatti. (I wonder why? )
    You're not paranoid if everyone hates you.

    does anyone know "Salmson" I had (a 2nd hand one) in the early sixties. Sort of french answer to Jaguar. 4 cylinder with dohc (axle driven, no chains or belts here!) and the fabulous Cotal gearbox.
    The factory still exists, but only makes waterpumps. A few of those are installed in the cellars of the Sydney Opera House

    Steen Pederson down Kaima or Nowra way has a bunch of those, including the special racing version that Mary Hitchin used to race.

    He also found, I believe, one that raced in Queensland before the war. He loves his Salmsons!

    Funny you should mention that... I saw a Gordini blue coloured R10 yesterday being driven in a spirited manner in Spring Hill.

    If he hadn't been trying to run me down at the time, I would have invited him to take a sticker...

    Loovlie...

    Did I ever tell you about the night we had eight inches of rain in Sydney... the Warwick Farm race meeting was postponed, the roads were empty, and we were thrashing around in this totally surefooted Gordini?

    Ask me sometime. The original owner of yours might have bought it because of the road test written after that night's fun!
