Quite agree. The difference between the Bristol and the BMW is almost like that between the concept and the production car (in that order).

Sorry about that I misled you with the clue, I got them mixed up, but seeing as it's the same, just badge engineered I'll give it to you

A Sunbeam Rapier MK1V

Fencing is quite a popular sport. I imagine someone somewhere in Africa must have a rapier.

That's cheating Roger. I was sure it was a Minx/Rapier/Gazelle variant, but thought I must be wrong as you would not be so obvious.

Sorry Andy

It was seeing them together on another forum, one member in Norfolk and the other in New Zealand, that made me realise how much the same but different they are, even the dashboards are the same but different.

Always state the obvious, even if it's wrong Twisted Evil

Like a lot of cars I suppose, you see the same cars day in day out, but line two together, but a few years apart in production, and you see the difference.
