Neither!! I had a vague recollection of visiting gardens near Bourne with a similar building so I searched 'Bourne' on RHS website and recognised the name in the list! :-D

Stu's new quirky things from Citroen's past thread reminded me of this but it doesn't belong on that thread. So name the car!! :-D

I had two Renault 4s with gearchanges like that and also the first - early 1974 - Renault 5 dad had also featured this most excellent gearchange arrangement :D

It was indeed the Renault R4L from 1962 which my brother-in-law had and drove into the ground. Some 2000 miles before he got there he wrecked his seat and drove the last miles perched on an orange crate!! You can see why he broke them when you are made aware he was a 17 stone beer lover!! :-D

Not a Toyota Soarer
Right country and similar, not that maunfacturer/model. Its a 1997 vintage car, on a UK "R" plate.

Mitsubishi 3000 GT maybe but the spoiler doesn't look exactly right.

Not Toyota, or Mitsubishi, just a few more usual suspects to try!

Have an interior...

It looks very like my Nissan SX200 so I'd go for the Nissan stable but possibly the Starline? :-D
