OK, here's one where the parts look good, but they look ugly as a unit. Looks like a Frankenstein's monster to me.

Yeah, it looks like a mish-mash of many kinds of cars. I'm clueless!

This week's car is a Matra Djet, built between 1962-67.

From wikipedia:

The Matra Djet was a French sports car designed by René Bonnet and modified by Matra. The car had various names in its life from 1962 till 1967: René Bonnet Djet, Matra Bonnet Djet, Matra Sports Djet and finally Matra Sports Jet.

I'm pretty sure the specific car isn't a Rene Bonnet, it's one of the Matra built ones - they were slightly restyled and a bit larger I understand, But there were so many variations of wheelarches, wheels, trim, bumpers, badge placement, name and number that I never found two the same! This one seems to have the 'teeth' missing from the bonnet vent on top of the nose...

Good one,anyway.
