We make these videos because we love cars. Please help us keep making them by liking our videos. Thank you very much! Recently we came across this beautiful Jensen Interceptor 3 LHD Convertible 1975 at The Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. This classic car dealer is one of the largest in the world. We took the car for a little spin! We love to hear your comments on our videos. Feel free to leave one! The Jensen Interceptor is a sporting GT-class car that was hand-built at the Kelvin Way Factory, West Bromwich near Birmingham in the United Kingdom by Jensen Motors between 1966 and 1976. The Interceptor name had been used previously by Jensen for the Jensen Interceptor made between 1950 and 1957 at the Carters Green factory. Jensen had extensively used glass-reinforced plastic for the fabrication of body panels in the preceding two decades, but the new Interceptor saw a return to a steel body-shell instead of glass-reinforced plastic and by having the body designed by an outside firm, Carrozzeria Touring of Italy, rather than the in-house staff. The early bodies were Italian-built, by Vignale, before production by Jensen themselves began -- with subtle body modifications -- in West Bromwich

1976 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow STK 1391.mp4
When the double "R" badge turns a corner, everyone notices it. You cannot blend a Rolls Royce with the other cars traveling down the street. It only takes one glimpse and you know you're looking at something different. Rolls Royce has been the definition of luxury since they first opened there doors. This Silver Shadow shows the quality that goes into making these cars. Although this car was produced in 1976 it still looks remarkable. The two tone color scheme of minty green and black sets things off in traditional Rolls Royce style. All the chrome is in outstanding condition along with thick crystal clear glass. The over sized wheels are color matched, the hood ornament is gleaming, and the grill flashes light off the front like a chandler. In other words, a Rolls Royce is coming your way. Inside you wouldn't expect anything less than A1 quality, and that's exactly what you get. The seats are the same minty green as the paint, leather of course. From the passenger side to the driver's side everything is beveled into warm wood grain, along with the steering wheel. The condition of the leather is outstanding. The same can be said for the head lining, the door panels and floors. Proper care was issued when taking care of this car. Sitting inside the Shadow you cannot help but feel safe. Almost like getting into a German tank, with plush padded leather seating inside. The Silver Shadow came equip with a hydraulic ride leveling system developed by Citro´┐Żn. When in reverse the car actually leans back, giving you the proper weight distribution and view of the road behind you. While driving it kneels forward a bit, keeping the powerful 6.7 liter V8 from lifting the car's hood off the road. Independent suspension, disc brakes, power locks, power windows, power steering, and many more things that we take for granted today, were standard on the Shadow. The engine is mated up to a numbers matching turbo Hydromatic 400 transmission. This car runs over instantly and rolls along almost like an ocean wave. It takes off, it stops, but never abruptly, it just fades away quickly and smoothly. You cannot hide class. This car actually spent quite a while in a Washington D.C. museum if you had concerns on the condition. This car is priced to sell. If you've always wanted a piece of luxury that still stands up to the cars of today, this is it. This vehicle is located in our Charlotte, NC showroom.

Austin Allegro: The Car's The Star Part Two
Part two of Quentin Willson's look at the Allegro. Apologies for the poor quality 3/4 of the way through but this is due to a damaged tape. The silence mid way through is due to an ABBA song on the soundtrack that upset the copyright owner and it was blocked so I had to edit it out and upload it again. Quentin only talks about colours and trim in this section.
