Car-spotting: Nissan family reunion

 This impressive and improbable array of historical vehicles dates to the 1930s, and includes such confections as the lovely Fairlady Roadster of 1961 (a car named after the Lerner and Loewe musical My Fair Lady) and the R390 GT1 Le Mans racer (styled by British designer Tony Southgate, who penned the Jaguar XJR-9 and Ferrari 333 SP racers).
