Rob Walker Collection 9...( Cars).

Just a few of the many cars Rob Walker's  has painted or repaired.
Series 2 Daimler XJ in what appears to be "Primrose" with a black vinyl top.

Austin A55 Countryman of around '60 or '61 vintage.

Another XJ Daimler. This time a 1984 Series 3 with the 4.2 litre engine.

impressively painted sidecar outfit.

This 1937 MG VA is finished in two very pleasant shades of green.
They were produced as Sports Saloons, Drop Head Coupes and Open Tourers, like this one.
Only about 2400 of all models were produced, so I would think this would be fairly rare in NZ.

Porsche 911 Carerra Turbo of the mid 70s.

This appears to be 2 photos of the same car in two different backgrounds.

I've always liked the shape of the Mk2 Jaguar and actually prefer the steel rims in preference to the sought after chrome wires, but I think they need the chrome bands, as well, which Jaguar called "Rimbellishers".
Mk 2s were also available with painted wires as well, but these seem very few and far between.

I'm not very knowledgeable on single seaters,
 but this appears to have been painted in the colours of one of its sponsors, David Pope Transport.

'68 Ford Escort has been painted in an imaginative stripe decor.
