    Re: Stoneleigh 2020

    Thanks Craig, good of you to give everyone advance warning that you won't be taking a stand...er, as it were. (That actually wasn't meant as a deliberate funny - only spotted it when I read it...

    Re: Newbie saying hi and Q's

    Actually, with all this talk of Alfas and Toyotas/Lotuses...Loti...English sports cars, the other options seem to have been forgotten... because you could use a Ferrari engine and box - LB have just...

    Re: Hawk for sale

    I'm now well past the 'worrying' stage, and more into thoughts of 'confinement for his own good'... ;)

    The evidence is all pointing to there being something not right with this car - I too had...

    Re: Hawk for sale

    Bloody L, well spotted, Chris! Although I do worry about ya sometimes.... ;)

    So that's not a bad profit, if it sells for the asking price (91K on the website). So do we deduce that the Belgian...

    Re: Bargain basement Stratos for sale

    See? Said I was dim.... Although, if I was looking for a trackday car, it wouldn't be a Stratos. Especially at that price.

    Re: Bargain basement Stratos for sale

    Thanks for that, John and Frederic!

    Re: The red replica sold ?

    Yep, it's what I've said previously - the cars are being taken seriously in their own right; the buyers have changed - more wealthy(ish) collectors wanting the cars; and the sellers have stopped...

    Re: Lancia Stratos 2030

    I think it's part of this modern nostalgia trend. People will look at something iconic, and try to update it in a modern way. I don't mind... it's perhaps an attempt to reconnect with a time "when...

    Re: The red replica sold ?

    I can see both sides of the argument here. On the one hand, I don't see what the problem is with telling people what your car sold for - it's not going to decrease or increase your standing in the...

    Re: Bargain basement Stratos for sale

    What's this "CG" that's mentioned in the advert? I can't help but think "centre of gravity" but it's obviously not that, unless he's found a way to bend the laws of physics....must be something...

    Re: Yet another non Stratos related project !!

    Like the stripes - very Italian! Looking good!

    That's actually why my car's yellow, to match the stripe up my back. ;)

    Wow. Someone's a not-so-closeted Lancia fan...! Very retro looks - love the figured covering on the Stratos one, and the purple on the Fulvia (that one reminded me of one of the colour options on...
  18. Re: STR in Banbury for Historic Monte Carlo passage control

    That's a bit of an "oo-ee-oo" moment...but ARE they easy to nick? I mean, OK, old-type door locks, simple column steering lock, but who knows what else is in place on a given car? And then, assuming...
