  2. Nope. Leaving only 2 automotive creating continents...

    The designer has something in common with the late great Peter Brock.
     
  3. Australia?
     
  4. I thought that would be the next guess. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    No, not Australia. I said the designer had something in common with Peter Brock, and it's not the country of origin.

    Now I think it's fair to say that the only continent left is Asia, unless someone can point out an Antartican car?
     
  5. lol, Toyota?
     
  6. Finally found it. Never heard of it before though.
    It is the Hino Samurai
     
  7. Correct, I guess the Pete Brock connection was a little strong.

    For those that aren't aware, Hino is one of the largest small-sized truck manufacturers in the world. Not the 'trucks' that you American weirdos know, the real things that actually transport cargo.
    They experimented with roadcars for a short period, the Contessa that their made competed fairly well against cars in it's class (Mini etc.), and Pete Brock (Daytona Coupe designer) designed this car - the Hino Samurai, but unfortunately the project was stillborn. The car was featured on the (iirc) September 1972 Road & Track cover.
    I'll put pics up in the passion or ultra rare thread sometime soon.

    Dalla, show us what you got
     
  8. Here is a new one for you.
     
  9. Here is another for you
     
  10. No idea, I first thought it was some kind of DB, but it isn't.
    Oh wait, Panhard CD?

    edit: oh and click on the link in my sig, it helps my e-town grow lol
     
  11. is it a alfa romeo?
     
  12. Er, last I heard the Peter Brock who designed the Daytona Coupe was neither dead nor Australian.

    I think you might be confusing him with his Australian racing driver namesake....

     
  13. I think you're confusing yourself there. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    The original clue I gave was the designer had something in common with the late great Peter Brock. What Pete Brock and Peter Brock have in common is as you say, the namesake. That was what I used as a clue, and I think you mixed up the two, thinking I meant the designer originally. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  14. Ok, I've got it now! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  15. Sorry for the delay guys. The car i've posted isn't any of the above suggestions. Let me know if you want a hint.
     
  16. I'd like a hint whether it's a kitcar or not mainly
    And if it's French
     
  17. OK. It is not a kit car and it is not European. But it is designed by a quite well known Italian designer.

    Edit: And BTW they only made one.
     
  18. Looks like something brazil would do
     
  19. Nope not south american either.
     
  20. Is it GM based?
     
  21. did someone already guess a citroen?
