Title: Lancia's seen
Post by: fay66 on 17 September, 2020, 12:03:36 PM
Yesterday a integrale parked at a building site in Streatley near Luton.
Today between Hitchin and Henlow camp on the A606, parked nose in to a gateway a Flavia or 2000 Coupe in dark blue, but lighter than lancia Blue.
Sure this one was stored at the same property a number of years ago, so perhaps it has been restored?
I don't have this on our LMC Register.

I have a feeling Andrew Jelly used to live on the Hitchin Road south of Henlow Camp. Might it have been his Flavia?

You're lucky, I can't remember the last time I last saw one on the road. Last one I do remember was a Thema in North Yorkshire in 2016!

Here is an Augusta seen a long time ago!

In about 1959 I helped John Grice collect this splendid 1925 Austro Daimler from its original owner near Leeds, a car which I hoped to buy but did not have the necessary 300 (it still exists by the way, sold a year or so back after many years in the Beaulieu museum).

Of interest now is the car in the background of the picture, an Augusta reg CGC724 which I think probably belonged to John who was a spare time vintage car dealer as well as a keen Frazer Nash man.

Does the Augusta still exist?

Seen today at the Netherton Pub/Bootle Golf Course traffic lights, turning onto Dunningsbridge Road heading towards M57/M58.

A lovely pair of Gamma Coupes. Andrea even took a picture to show me! Had I known you were passing the kettle would have been on!

You could be right Frank as I'd seen a Lancia under cover there a number of years ago, but it's the first time I've actually seen it on the road.
