    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. ;)

    Re: Transformer arrives in Colchester

    Glad to see you've finally got shot of the old nail. Maybe get a decent one next time, eh? ;)

    I am, of course, kidding....I know you said you enjoyed driving the Hawk the most out of your fleet,...

    Aaaand yet another gig - and this time, aren't we getting posh? This one's at Brooklands in Surrey, in mid-June. It used to be called the "Brooklands Double 12 Motorsport Festival" but it seems...
  8. Scottish Italian Car Day - May 3rd - Hopetoun House

    Well, the invitations and events continue to come in thick and fast, the latest being the Scottish Italian Car Day at Hopetoun house, South Queensferry, just outside Edinburgh. As it happens, this...
  9. Re: One for all you Stratos/Fulvia loving guitar players out there...

    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...
  10. 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...

  13. Re: STR in Banbury for Historic Monte Carlo passage control

    But Leigh! I thought you said you didn't do Twitter or FB or Instagram etc.... can't trust ya now, bet that build thread and all those pics are just stuff you made up. ;)
  14. Re: STR in Banbury for Historic Monte Carlo passage control

    What a poser. But you can't blame him tho, can ya ;)

    Not sure I'd have parked outside a key-cutting shop and expected such a desirable thing to still be there upon my return tho.... or maybe...

    Re: Just seen this !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Robin, Leah says she'd never consider getting her leg over anything that didn't offer satisfying performance.

    Make of that what you will.... :)

    Re: Just seen this !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So, it's a picture of a Stratos in a garage, hemmed in by piles of dusty sh!te. Why is that deemed unusual to anyone on here....?? :)

    Re: Calendar Events

    Thanks Pete, much easier to get an idea of what's when on there.

    Chris, I bet the trolley's not got a V5, but it could well be adapted from an old WW2 V1 or V2 launch trolley. Or maybe not. :)

    Re: Pirelli Hawk for sale in Andorra

    I see, Frederic, so a previous owner could have modified an existing registration. Naughty!

    Chris, correct, no such thing as a '72 Stratos. But the guy in the registration office wouldn't know...

    Re: Pirelli Hawk for sale in Andorra

    No Phil, discovering that someone's successfully managed to register it as a 72 Stratos makes me feel quite uncomfortable. I suppose, if it couldn't be registered as a Hawk or whatever it really is,...

    "The Chairman" he say, at least it's only a rendering. In the front view it's got quite a surprised look...sort of "what have you done to me" kinda thing :)

    Cheers for that Ian, much appreciated to know what's caused the issue.

    Re: Pirelli Hawk for sale in Andorra

    To be fair, the advert does say it's a replica, and with my Devil's Advocate hat on, it could be that the thinking is that it's still a lot cheaper than a genuine car. But with my Get Real hat on,...

    Check the envelope the calendar came in - the badges aren't very big and it could still be in there....if you chucked it, the local landfill site could be your first port of call! Or you could say...
