 Dodge -coronet

1959 Dodge Coronet - $45,990

While not my cup of tea, this one is a real attention grabber.

With just the one owner and with low miles, this finned Dodge is looking decidely desirable, for lovers of 50s American cool.

It has the dash push-button auto, power brakes and power steering and underwent a full resto in the late 90s making it look better than new.

With its two-tone paint work, whitewall tyres and loads of chrome, it looks like its been driven off the set of Happy Days. All that is required to complete the look is the fluffy dice hanging off the rear view mirror.

Mercedes -benz -e 220

1995 Mercedes-Benz E220 W124 - $14,950

I love these old benz coupes. Penned by revered desiger Bruno Sacco these pillarless 2+2 beauties still look the part today and the W124 series was one of the best, with a feeling like they have been sculptured from a billet of steel. And never mind that there are only four-cylinders lurking behind the starred grille, the 2.2 litre has more than enough urge.

The big comfy grey-leather seats are electric powered and when on full tilt the massive single wiper blade can rock the car. This one should be snapped up and sent straight to the pool room.

Bentley -continental

2006 Bentley continental - $99,990

hang on old boy, a Bentley you say? Where’s the drinks cabinet, the walnut veneer, the tall, stately, four-door body?

With the Continental GT coupe Bentley binned the tweed and stuck on a tee shirt. Then stuck it on the track. The whopping 12-cylinder GT coupe might need its own mid-flight refuelling system but it’s also very rapid, as our own John Bowe proved at the helm of a GT Conti cruising the outback at a leisurely 330km/h.

What I love most is it is so un-Bentley with the glaring red look-at-me paintwork and fat tyres.
