    LB Stratos on Late Brake Show

    Just seen Jonny Smith's latest video features LB Stratos.
    https://youtu.be/eocNMVJQzuo

    Jonny is doing good work on his channel and well worth a view.

    If you are already a fan of Jonny you probably also listen to the podcasts he does with Richard "Sniff Petrol" Porter - comedy gold every week!

    This is worth watching to the very end...

    I've met Kevin, had a brew/ wander around his gaff & been in the LB. He was even kind (or mad) enough to let me drive it. He's a v decent bloke.

    Cheers,

    Jonny sent me a few emails a while ago.
    He wanted to buy my spare Honda V6 (Rover 827) engine to put in his Allegro.

    What a great 35 mins of entertainment and what a massive bit of praise for the LB STR in that company.
    That was cool.

    I think Jonny's next video will be his drive in the LB.
    Hopefully he will chat about it in next weeks "Smith & Sniff" podcast too.
    I want to hear what Mr "car trivia" Porter knows about the Stratos - he seems to have a funny story about every car.

    Come to think of it he might have mentioned it in this week's podcast, I only got halfway through during my lunchtime walk.

    Yes a great YouTube moment or several moments. A lovely stable of cars, but a Muria and a Stratos side by side - heaven!
    The LB Stratos is the one Nick Allen (Red5) built and sold back in 2019 if I'm not mistaken. A lovely car.

    Yep, that's Nick's car. I heard they gut that bought it had an impressive car collection and indeed he does.

    Very high praise though, out of all his cars the LB is the top one!!!!

    I wonder if the guy selling the ebay Stratos is watching this? Get ready for the price to go up

    What struck me most was that a bloke that could clearly afford to have a Lancia Strato’s chose to have an LB STR, and a bloke with some pretty impressive cars in his collection. Loved the way he described it too, bang on IMO.

    A well deserved endorsement I think.

    Why does he think a real Stratos is trickier to drive than a replica?
    He's talked himself out of the perceived shortcomings of a real Stratos, but is ready to forgive a Miura for possibly setting itself on fire at any given moment.
