    Came across this from my collection.....anybody have any idea waht happened to the car ? It has Ontario plates, so I wonder if it was a loaner, ?
    Any ideas ? (I was going to put it in racing....but thought this would be better..)

    Cheers !

    Thanks for posting that great pic. I didn't know he owned a 308.

    Never seen such a front spoiler on a 308.

    Great photo!

    Also have seen photo with GV driving a Mondial qv with his name on the side of it.

    If you're going to have a company car,.....

    IIR, I have seen a picture of his 308 in color before. I'll have to look it up, but I'm pretty sure that the color was more orange-ish than red. I remember it striking me at the time as odd.

    I'd seen the orange one too, and I suspect it was the one he kept in Moncao, and the one we hear about in all the stories of "driving with Gilles".
    Shame this was a black and white photo...but it does appear to be a dark colour, no?

    That photo looks like it was taken in Toronto. You can see Roy Thomson Hall in the background. The place certainly has changed since then!!
