This real Dreamcar u tube clip walks you round a 1996 Bentley Continental R. This is most definitely a Dreamcar for many people who aspire to, one day, owning a luxury motor car that, brand new, costs more than many houses. For a vehicle that is 20 years old, it looks to be in absolutely mint condition. The paint work, bright work, interior seats and dashboard, are stunning (for their age), and if continued to be cared for and maintained should go on for many years to come.

Jaguar XJ Coupe

One of the Most Beautiful Cars ever Produced

Here are 2 pictures of the Jaguar XJ Coupe which I consider to be one of the most beautiful cars in the world, the Jaguar XJ Coupe was made between 1975 and 1977. The lines are clean and with all the windows open it has great looks and is a true 2 Door, 4 seater, Coupe. The 5.3 V12 version was one of the first 150mph production sports saloon.

Today is an auspicious day

Today is an auspicious day as we open up a new website based on a passion for all things auto, that I shared with my Dad, who would have been 98 years old today. Mum and Dad bought their first car in 1953 just after my older brother was born, and the wheel fell off the sidecar while Mum and baby were sitting in it, (they had just stopped). Mum refused to go in it anymore and Dad decided they should change from their motorcycling youth to a more refined form of transport, now they had a family. Their first car was actually a 1950 Ford Prefect. It had an 1,172 cc (71.5 cu in) side-valve engine with thermocirculation radiator (no pump) and the ability to be started by a crank handle, should the battery not have sufficie...

Welcome to AutoSpanna

Welcome to AutoSpanna.com where we will discuss all things auto. You will see as we build this site and add more articles, that we are not fixed on any one segment, brand, make, type, model or Country. We will talk about all aspects of anything to do with cars, restoration, likes and dislikes, detailing, paint spraying, interiors, accessories, styling, and virtually anything that has anything to do with motoring.

During this journey you will learn that I am not an active fan of motor racing, although I do see it is the place of many advances that eventually find their way into the general everyday auto world.

You will also come to realise that I have more than a passing interest in 4 vehicle manufacturers irrespective of who actually owns them no...
