1956 Aston martin DB2/4 Mk2 FHC
In 1972 I was looking for a DB4 but couldn't find one that met my criteria. On the rebound I came across this and 45 years later it's still with me.

Alfa Romeo TZ2 chassis 10511AR750113

Alfa Romeo TZ2 chassis 10511AR750113
Alfa Romeo TZ2.
In 1965 the car was updated with new fibreglass bodywork providing lower drag and reduced weight (620 kg). This new version was also made by Zagato. The new design was called the 
Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ2. The TZ2 was only built as racing version; it was equipped with an Autodelta-prepared twin plugdry sump lubrication 1,570 cc straight-4 DOHC engine producing around 170 brake horsepower (130 kW) at 7000 rpm. With this engine the car reached top speed of 152 miles per hour (245 km/h).[6] The rear window was also changed, now single unit rather than three part window in TZ. Development of TZ cars was stopped in the end of 1965, to make room for new GTA racing program. Only 12 TZ2s were built. This is #10511AR750113

What Car was this Tail Light unit made for?

What Car was this Tail Light unit made for?
The Lucas 469 tail number plate and reversing light (fitted to many cars such as the Jaguar XK150) is mounted in an unusual boot handle. The handle has amanufacturers logo that looks like AJW B'ham. I assume that this is likely to be Birmingham U.K. Rather than USA so I suspect it was fitted to a British car.

Can anyone identify it as I want it to find a good home.

Again, in the area of Banka straat, The Hague, Netherlands, spotted a PostWar Classic. 
This happens on a regular basis when I'm going to the Banka Pub to meet some friends. It seems this neighborhood has some hidden treasures and once in a while one comes into the streets.
will keep you informed one I spot the next one.

Ferrari 208

Ferrari 208

Ferrari 208 GTB/GTS

In 1980 Ferrari introduced a two-litre version of the 308, 208 GTB and 208 GTS. Though mainly for the domestic Italian market, where new cars with engines above 2-litres were subjected to a much higher value added tax. The 208 GTB/GTS replaced the 208 GT4 2+2. It was regarded as the slowest Ferrari ever made but was surpassed by 208 GT4 Bertone by American magazine Motor Trend In 1980.

The engine was de-bored to 68.8 mm (giving it an undersquare design) for a total displacement of 1,990.64 cc (121 cu in), resulting in one of the smallest V8 engines ever produced.

160  GTS and 140 GTB cars were produced in 1980 and 1982.
