I've been away for a while, so here's a pristine, completely original, factory-built Renault R5 Turbo II. Really, that's what it is... basically Jean Ragnotti's rally car.

After that beauty, let's return to something more mundane: a run-of-the-mill Porsche 917-30

And given the previous discussion about the GT40, how about one of the only (maybe the only?) American cars to have won a Formula 1 race. Also, one of maybe three winning cars to have been built by the driver's team: Dan Gurney and the Eagle (to be fair, I don't know if this particular car was the race winner, or even precisely the same model):

(edit- not counting the Indy 500 winners of the early sixties, when that race was technically part of the Grand Prix series)

This one is unique. When Trevor Bayne won Daytona in 2011 the day after his 20th birthday, he was the youngest driver to ever do so. He was too young for champagne so his crew showered him with Coca Cola, causing the confetti to stick to the car. It was preserved in that state.

The quintessential Aussie one-tonne 'tonner' ute, a relic from the 1970s, ready for work.

The car is cool. The building, however, is very intriguing. It grabs my attention. More please? (In the correct thread, of course!)
I'm afraid that's all I took. It was in Loxton, on the River Murray in South Australia, and appears to have been a photographer's shop - in truth, that old sign writing was what first caught my eye, not the car!

That's the silliest snow-plow I have ever seen...
