    Nick Mason had a Strato's!

    I never knew Nick Mason had a Strato's! Google brought up an article that says:

    'MANY OTHER FERRARIS HAVE COME AND GONE over the years, including a Dino 246 GTS which became a part exchange for a Lancia Stratos. I am really sorry I sold the Lancia, Mason says. It was a very tricky car but really exotic and an extraordinary idea.'

    He's always had impeccable taste.

    Complete with bull bars, IIRC!
    It's the green car photographed in that book that made me really want one in green, as a 10 year old kid!

    I believe Simon Park, composer of "Eye Level", Van der Valk theme, also bought a Stratos.
    Surely there must be more famous owners?
    Spoke to Rob Whitehouse the film director in Hoznayo who has also owned two original Stratos in his time. Currently campaigning an Olio Fiat liveried 037 but says he is considering a Stratos rep for fun.

    Yes, Ian Frazer one time editor (and owner) of Car magazine, also owns a Stratos, partially because of driving Nick Masons' https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/featur...hive-may-1979/
    and Ian in turn gave me my first ride in a Stratos

    "Bull bars",
    Yes, that's a better description.
    It is red though, not green.

    There are actually 3 different green Stradales in that Graham Robson Super Profile book. The Roger Perry car is only shown in black and white.
