So #WeirdCarMastodon folks after an unscheduled break, for which I can only apologise, it's the return of the #NameThatCar challenge.

The answer to the outstanding #NameThatCar challenge is a car that I like the look of, but have never really desired, despite owning its siblings! I would like to drive one sometime! The image with its odd vents made a few folks to think "rear-engined" whereas it is in fact Triumph's pocket homage to the E-Type, the #Triumph #GT6 MKIII. The vents are either cabin air or just decoration!
Well done if you got it right!

The answer to the outstanding #NameThatCar challenge is a car that would have been an object of desire in my youth, affordable performance compared to a hot hatch.
It is a #Ford #Escort MK1 #Mexico which I spotted for sale at a petrol station for £32k, isn't even an original Mexico.

The answer to the outstanding #NameThatCar challenge was as many spotted a #Rover P5B Coupe. It's not the most obvious Coupe. As these are indistinguishable from the saloon from the front corner I will take Rover P5. This is a car associated with Margaret Thatcher, while out of production by the time she became PM HMG having purchased the end of production vehicles, kept them in use by Minsters into the 80s.

The answer the outstanding #NameThatCar challenge was this attractive Jaguar XJS Convertible from sunny California. Thanks to @Holberg for the picture.
Following the E-Type was always going to be tough and XJ-S didn't get the warmest of welcome. However it stuck around and was well liked if out dated by the time it was eventually retired.
Thanks to everyone who had a guess.

That the answer to yesterdays #NameThatCar challenge was, as a good number of you clever #WeirdCarMastodon folks worked out a late 60's Sunbeam Apline. The film connection is that an earlier Sunbeam Alpine was the first film "Bond Car" appearing in Dr No. More here: https://www.hotcars.com/the-real-story-behind-james-bonds-sunbeam-alpine. I believe the E-Type was never an official Bond Car.

There was some excitement around #WeirdCarMastodon last week about a #2CV with a wooden body.
Here from my weekend out is a car, that is no longer a 2CV, but is largely made of #wood! Its 2CV origins can be seen in the lights and fenders. All the mechanical parts are from a 602 CV that succumbed to chassis rot. Everything else was made by the owner! It is an incredible piece of work!

For today's somewhat delayed #NameThatCar challenge for #WeirdCarMastodon something less sophisticated than yesterday's Stinger.
Can you idea identify this hooligan* tool from this image?
*This might be a UK centric view of this car and this version in particular.

For today's #WeirdCarMastodon #NameThatCar challenge we have something that is more international, definitely not British, and certainly more widely recognisable than yesterday's Scimitar.
Can you name it from this image of a single headlamp?

For today's #WeirdCarMastodon #NameThatCar challenge here is something of a fixer upper!
This "car" lives the other end of town from me, sadly it doesn't look like much has happened to it in recent years.
Can you name it from this image of where the headlamp should be?
Reasonable popular in the UK, one of the Royal Family had one, not sure how many made it to other parts of the world.

I know @davidwilkins has just finished with Citroën but here is a DS Safari working hard for a living as a camera car.

So the answer to yesterdays slightly more than 50th #NameThatCar challenge was as many spotted a Land Rover Defender 110. It really was one and not two despite the colours looking different.
Also glad people continue to enjoy this daily challenge despite the absence of a prize!
With this "old school" #Defender already sought after, it's place in classic cardom seems assured.

Image shows the front of a silver Land Rover Defender with a mesh protector across the radiator grille and front lights.  The words "Land Rover" are visible on the leading edge of the bonnet, while the word Defender is in smaller font in the top centre above the radiator grille.

Today my #WeirdCarMastodon friends we celebrate (belatedly) a #NameThatCar milestone with over 50 challenges have being made and answered since I started this as one off with an Avantime back in February. It has seen me through recovery from surgery, provided some fun moments and new connections, so my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has got involved.
To mark this milestone here are some panels, can you name the car?

Time for today's #WeirdCarMastodon #NameThatCar challenge.

It's a bit of a rear light for today's well regarded and very likely future classic that already has something of a cult appeal.

Went to London today, sadly didn't see anything interesting so here's a not very interesting car for today's #WeirdCarMastodon #NameThatCar challenge.
Can you name it from this chunk of grille?
Not sure this will ever be classic even if it is rare in this guide.

As #WeirdCarMastodon did so well with yesterday's mystery car, here is another headlamp from a somewhat older car to identify.
A design classic in it's own way I suspect this will be more widely recognised that yesterday's Renault Avantime.
I was not involved in the launch of this but my family had a couple of these when I was a teenager.

The headlamp and indicator on the front right side of a yellow car. A chrome bumper with rubber over riders is also visible.
