Great photo, Sespie, and answers the unposed question, "What would a Rover P5 look like with a contemporary paint scheme?"

I rather like it, and it is all reversible back to standard.

A Datsun 180B, still in daily use. Fantastic.

Pity I won't be there in February, stage 14 is very close to my holiday home in Breil sur Roya. On the other hand every spring and summer there is a wealth of classic car events in the area. Amongst others there is the San Remo rally and several hill climbs.

Don't ask me - very weak when climbing the serpentine road with its many hairpin turns from Sospel to the Col de Turini under full speed at night in the snow. :shock:

The famous "night of the long knives" - 50 kms at two o'clock in the morning.

I once had brief ownership of Fulvia 1.6 HF, only too brief as a Lancia dealer, it disappeared off the forecourt very quickly (for money, of course!). But what a fantastic little car; the 1.3 was a joy, but this one.....something else. As a replacement, the Beta Coupe deserves a lot of praise, but it just did not have the character of the Fulvia HF 1600.
Talking, for just a moment, about the Beta Coupe, I was with a group of UK dealers paying a visit to the Lancia factories in Italy during which we paid a visit to the competitions department, at a time when the 4x4 Beta coupe was the business. Gathered in an admiring group in front of one of the factory team cars, we were invited to enjoy the sound of the highly tuned engine 'on song'. Despite several attempts the engine of the car refused to fire up. One of the UK dealers, an Italian by chance, quietly produced a box of matches from his pocket and quietly placed it on the bonnet of he car. Silence followed, and we made a tactful exit.
