Cool pics Mac
Braemor were out in Churchtown. They'd have the odd 911 in the showroom. Belgard had it in the Celtic tiger years.

Ah Conor

Anorak on

Braemor was the same man as Belgard, he actually offered me a job years ago. The red targa 911 was his car.

930XZD was owned by McCormack McNaughton, a 930 turbo. Loved that when I was a kid.

The creme Aston was owned by a builder who later got it resprayed a purply blue. He had another one too.

That's the NSX we discussed the other day that mr lotto bought. I remember seeing that 2 door Volvo a lot, thought it was cool.

Love the pics.

The red

only an Italian company could get away with naming their car "4 door" and have people dribble out the name....
