I had a bit to do with Keith Cerrino in the 1980s. He owned INT74 at that time, and probably still does. He would have shown me evidence of Campbell's ownership of the car, which is why that is reflected in the 1991 databook, but I do not have documentary proof myself. As it happens, the car I own t...

Nice find Felix. Someone asked me once what the dog's name was. The truth is out there and 50 years later we find out. I think the inscription reads "About - 1954".

Looks like Andrew was still holding the old logbook for 4499 (with no intention of passing the half shell off as the remains of it). Those clearing the estate must have assumed that the two are connected. I'll assume 4499 was broken at least 20 years ago. The number 8973 should be on the rear half. ...
The doors are on a car in Germany and the bonnet is on a car in Australia. The DVLA says it was last taxed in 1977. The JOC knew of it as a member's car in 1995. The timeline and parts dispersion are consistent with a car which was off the road for a long time and eventually broken. I don't think th...
>It's difficult from the DVLA records to determine the numbers of each model as almost a third are recorded as "Missing". This is a problem with government records, the usefulness of which cannot be verified outside their system. For example, today I was looking up the record for a signifi...
