Custard has no friends because all the other cars know he hasn't got a Lotus Twincam under the bonnet :mrgreen:

Neither has yours, Alan! :twisted:

Truly, a Lyon ready to pounce. Perhaps the most beautiful car ever offered to the public (and my best friend had a 3.8, the turn-in being a bit of a shock after the Elan). Anyone know its CD?

Car drove faultlessly - electrics a different storey- indicators, fuel gauge and rev counter stopped working- will need to check the earths behind the dash- oh well gives me an excuse to escape to the garage!

The Sprint waiting to go out last night in this lovely weather. On the way back, driving in the dark, hood down, nice and warm.........it`s just my favourite thing. The pic. is an attempt at an arty effect, like many things in life; not entirely successful.

Picking up 2nd Place for Post War Cars 1961 to 1974 at Hebden Bridge car show, wasn't expecting that, hadn't even washed it as it was all a bit last minute but nice of them to appreciate the car.
