Re: Forum anniversary

I endorse all the congratulations. The Forum is especially important for those of us who live far from the birth-place of our favorite car.

Re: Classic cars on the road

Last weekend was the high level car show here at Americana Manhasset, a show where there are many more Ferraris and Lamborghinis in the car park than make it into the show.

Re: Classic cars on the road

I can make out the letters of the license plate - UGK and the first number is 5 or perhaps 6. Is there anyway to find out who owned it? There's only one interceptor with reg starting UGK still on the road and that's UGK574M. I wonder if it's that one? My first guess as to the lead number was "...

Re: Classic cars on the road

I have been scanning b&w negatives and saw, for the first time, that I had serendipitously caught an Interceptor in the background of this photo, taken in about 1978. For many years, my research in London was funded by the Muscular Dystrophy Group and one of their fund raising events was a bed r...

Re: Classic cars on the road

I showed the Jensen at the annual high end show, primarily of European cars, at Americana, here on Long Island. The Jensen gets a lot of attention despite the competition from multi-million dollar classic Ferraris, Lamborghinis etc.

Re: Classic cars on the road

I'm never sure if cars at a show count as being "on the road." Still, here are some from the Long Island Jaguar and MG clubs show at the Vanderbilt estate.
