You're a fine figure of a man Phil, fine figure I say. Shame that figure is 8 eh?

Yes I know I can talk!

Anyway looks you've got a nice fine, nor too hot, dry day tomorrow. Shame you can't do a full day. Enjoy!

A great day and no rain!

Good to meet up with Paul and Bruno and to play host if only for the day To Phil who diverted to the UK on his way home to Long Island New York from a family holiday in Venice.

I took a lot of photos, not always well framed but mostly with a Lotus flavour, there's a group photo of the 4 of us who met up and a couple of Just Phil and Myself as well as lots of lovely Elans. SWMBO managed to photobomb at least once as well.

Here's the link to my photo bucket album for the event, apologies for no descriptions or comments, but most speak for themselves https://www.dropbox.com/sh/pf5622xp1bhk ... HdvMa?dl=0

Of particular interest to me were two facsimiles or replicas, one was a particularly nice Westfield Eleven and the other was a Triumph based type 14 replica, I have tried to get some back ground on the Triumph but have not come up with anything, if anyone has information I would be interested to know more.
Kindest regards

The car on the right was repainted Daytona Yellow according to a customer, that is probably why they are different.

Richard,

Is that a Triumph or a Elite then?
