So what's your Z been mistaken for recently!?

Well gang, this really happened; and believed by my buddies! I'm still giggling about it.

How about you? What has your Z been mistaken for?

My neighbour thought it was a classic Aston or Bentley - clearly he isn't a petrolhead...

When I had mine it was usually an Aston Martin or a Maserati it got mistaken for. But my favourite moment was when a stunning girl called out "Hey - love your James Bond car".
And before anyone else says it - no, I don't get such comments about my Rover 3500S. But it does attract a lot of attention all the same.

No, mainly former police traffic officers who used to drive them as pursuit vehicles in the 70s.

Don't worry, I don't think anyone has ever said such a thing about any rover
