Yes, nice car! But thatís no way to treat what looks like a period half-decent Peugeot 10-speed bike!

There was a pop video with a group using a Gamma coupe, can't remember the group
and Universal music removed the video from youtube

Regarding the Fulvia, it is currently for sale on the Omicron website http://www.omicron.uk.com/php/phpclassifieds/detail.php?siteid=1499 (http://www.omicron.uk.com/php/phpclassifieds/detail.php?siteid=1499), but not by me.

The coincidental link with me is that the guy who is restoring the bodywork on my Flavia is also the guy that owns the Classic Car Hire company which is being referred to in the ad. He's a Lancia fan and has a Flaminia Touring Coupe in his barn, but it needs a lot of work.

On the downside, he works very slowly and the restoration of my Flavia is taking an eternity.... :(

A Matt Bianco video had a Gamma coupe in it!

Sad, but true.

Smiley Culture's 80's hit "Police Officer" tells the story of him being stopped for possession and convincing the police that he was both famous and a good driver having owned a Lancia, to get off the charge

Also sad but true!

If you haven't already seen it you should catch the clips of David Clarke's film of the 1955 Monaco Grand Prix which were included in last week's BBC local Leicester 'Inside Out' programme.  The interesting bits are at http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/leicester/hi/people_and_places/history/newsid_9146000/9146538.stm   
The film of the start, around 3.30, leaving aside the extraordinary images of the D50s, is among the best bits of motor racing film I know. It seems that the original film is owned by the National Motor Museum and I shall see whether we can get hold of a copy.  And there is a B20 in there as well if you search...........

Didn't spot the B20 but great bit of film, and the colour is incredible.

Absolutely nothing to do with Lancia but two nice bits of film from the VSCC Forum:
Hamish White in a 12/50 Alvis on Drumhouse:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_TFyvqfghc
and Ari Vatanen in a Peugeot on Pikes Peak: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKgeCQGu_ug

The Alvis footage didn't seem quite right without steam puffing out the rad filler - or is that just me :(

That Pikes Peak film was something else.  For once the big scares were the understeer moments, only a couple but real butt clenchers.  Those bumper level views of dust and sky were great.  There's a similar view at the Semi Circle up the top of Prescot but its not all that big a drop and not all that fast for all it would smart a bit falling off.  The Sloc Hill on the Isle of Man has some really big drops and while my memory is "all you see is sky" corners YouTube footage seems very tame.  At least next to Prescot it had the "foot to the floor in 4th" pace that gets the ticker really going.

In brief - thankyou for the posting!!
