Thanks for that JBW. I'd never seen that bodywork before and thought they all looked like this which I prefer.

I knew it was a Vignale special - but I'm not so sure the first link did! apologies for my lazy google search.

Spotted thias Healey earlier heading south on A38 to either Torquay/Plymouth.

Checked on the JOC register and no details.

Must be new to the SW I guess.

At my friends garage. My TR, the DB9 is partly apart because the engine is being rebuild (one piston shattered), the Alfa Berlina is my friends daily hack.
The Fiat has had some body work done followed by a respray. The P1800 had air conditioning and electric power steering fitted.

I'm down in the South Island for the weekend and was expecting freezing misery. But it's been a beautiful sunny winter's day, with these spotted out and about...

Idstein is a great source today. Innocenti Lamhro 200.

Anyone here has seen one of these before? I doubt it.

The guy said it belonged to a buddy if his, who had brought it in from the States. Said it was a real Yenko, but I‘m not sure. Didn‘t seem like he knew too much. He also said the car is no good here in Switzerland, it just wants to go straight :shock: :roll:

They are easy to spot when they come to you, a couple of cars that I hadn't seen before turned up at my local car club meeting last night. First a 1958 Vauxhall Victor, the owner told us this car has never been restored and yet it is in showroom condition.

And the biggest estate/station wagon/small bus I have ever seen, though the engine must be more of less the same as in a C-V8 or Interceptor you could get in to the engine bay with it to work on it (apparently it does go through a 7 foot width restriction but not the six foot six ones).
