Several days ago I got an email from JD Fentie, who now lives in South Africa. I first met JD at Targa Newfoundland in 2003 when he competed in the Touring Class with his Porsche. JD was living in Ontario, Canada at that time. The last time that I saw JD was one cold night about 4 years ago at a service station in Coe Hill, Ontario when Harald von Langsdorff and I were getting some gas for our all night run in the Ontario Winter Rally. Since that time work has taken JD to the warmer temperatures of South Africa.
JD’s message to me included a number of photos from a car show somewhere in South Africa. A couple of the cars I recognized and JD told about another variant of a major car manufacturer that was only available in South Africa.
As a result, I have posted some of the car photos that JD sent to me in hopes of identifying them all. I know a few of these cars, but would like to get the names of them all. I have identified these cars by the number below each photo. If you know the make and model of all or a few of these cars please write your answers in a comment below the post. It would also be helpful, if you could include in your comment if you know for sure or are making an educated guess. As I don’t know the correct answers for them all, I need some basis to judge your response. Others might want to leave a comment verifying the identification of a car by someone else.
At some time in the future, I will update the titles under the photos of the cars with the correct car identification and the person who first made the identification, so that we all can benefit from the correct answers. Thanks for your help!
Update (August 27, 2011): I have included the identification of each car and the person who first identified the car. Thanks for your interest and help!
