Love the write up,

Styled by Carrozzeria Touring of Italy, it was handbuilt in the West Midlands between 1966 and 1976 from steel girders by men with proper names like Bob and Steve and George. Hell, even the rear axle was named after an English city renowned for attracting Russian assassins like flies to honey.

Of course it had lashings of leather, wood and chrome inside too but none of that really matters because the Interceptor can still snap knicker elastic at a hundred yards with just one blip of the throttle.


Has to be the best discription of an Interceptor yet.

Unless someone knows different
Only working half a day now.

Sadly, the rear axle was named after New York resident Mr. Salisbury, and not the town with a 123m high cathedral spire.

Why was it "restored" so often. Makes me suspicious of the quality of work done.
