Wow, you are really trying to prove your point and win something?

I thought we were discussing how it was marketed? My comment, which you seem to have a problem with, was that they were not sold as Austins. I cannot find a sales brochure for the Metropolitan that calls it an Austin. I never claimed that people don't call the UK sold versions Austins (in fact I mentioned that they generally did), just that was never their official brand. It's kinda like the VW Beetle (the original one), VW never called it the Beetle until well after the name was ingrained into everybody's mind.

You have presented a car magazine supplement, yes, the magazines generally referred to them as Austins in the UK, and a parts catalogue produced sometime after the cars were sold. I don't know how long after the cars were sold, but it's a third edition so it is likely they just added the Austin name by then, because that is how everybody referred to them.

I only pointed out the brochures that I could find as a point of interest, as part of a discussion because you seemed interested, but hey if it's a competition then I'm not interested, so you win.

Frankly, I am not interested in petty arguments. I enjoy discussion about these sorts of things, but i am not into points scoring or proving that I am "right". If it makes you happy, I will say that the answer of "Nash Metropolitan" to my image was wrong, it is clearly an "Austin Metropolitan". However I accepted the answer and the game has moved on, which is exactly what I am going to do. Consider this discussion ended.

Hmmm, I'm thinking Chrysler Valiant, possibly a VJ series ?

If you want more detailed, I don't know (even assuming it is a Valiant)

[edited to add] I would guess at a Charger to narrow it down a bit, but no idea which variant.

We have a winner !
Built, marketed, branded sold & brochured as a Valiant Charger..

Holden Monaro ....wrong.....wrong

That was good timing Ando, I just have time to post something before I head off to bed.

I don't think this one should be too tricky:

Your wish is my command. Yes, it's an SZ Zagato, the one known as "Il Monstre" (the monster) and does have looks like marmite (some love it, some hate it, but you can't ignore it :D). I have kinda got accustomed to them over the years, having seen at least one at most shows, so have got past the "damn it's ugly" stage and learned to accept it for what it is. I will never think it to be a good looking car though and certainly not up to the looks of pretty much any other Alfa.

Here is the whole car, as requested:
