Title: Lancia cars seen on the road
Post by: LMC Forum Administration on 01 February, 2006, 10:42:18 AM
This topic is a bit of fun.

If you've seen a Lancia around, let everyone know they've been spotted. One day you might even see yourself mentioned!


Title: Montecarlo in Walthamstow
Post by: Paul D on 15 March, 2006, 12:46:55 PM
Hi all, after telling a friend of mine that I have never seen a Monte on the road, except at shows ect , he keeps seeing one being driven by a lady in Walthamstow, East London. He thinks it is Blue/ green in colour. Anyone know of this car, regards Paul D

I saw the new Ypsilon (in cream/ ivory) driving south on the M1 not too long ago - a rare site indeed over here.  Just as I cought it up it pulled over onto the slip road  :cry: That probably saved me embarassment as I usually flash, wave and mouth the words Lancia as I go by, but given that I'm not in a Lancia on a daily basis the onlooking drivers usually think I'm quite mad!

Compared to the other small cars on our roads the Ypsilon certainly had more panache.  Nice

Hi

There's a chap who now imports them as he likes the car so much!  The website is at www.aarrtt.co.uk

Tempting..... :-)


Title: Lancia cars seen on the road
Post by: Anonymous on 27 March, 2006, 10:37:50 AM
Yes, tempting... but any spare cash I have must go towards the existing Lancia I already have, else it won't be getting anywhere near Turin this summer!  Furthermore, by getting my Fulvia on the road maybe someone will post a note on this string after spotting me :wink:

Meanwhile I'll keep playing the lottery as that's the only way I'll get the ypsilon, 'grale, aurelia, flaminia.........

Title: Lancias seen

As soon as I say there are none in Stirling , nice Dark blue S3 M plate Thema heading north on the M90. Maybe the one for sale in Febs Viva Lancia?


Title: Thema Turbo
Post by: will on 30 March, 2006, 05:36:02 PM
There is a K plate Thema 16v Turbo series 3 with a bit of a dent

Another new Ypsilon sighting - a smart metallic claret example, Italian registered, that appeared down the road from me in Peckham of all places. It must have felt as out of place as that north american bird that washed up in Peckham having been blown 3000 miles across the Atlantic, but perhaps with rather more hope of getting home again!


Title: Ypsilon
Post by: fay66 on 08 April, 2006, 11:09:20 PM
Hi All,
 
A new Ypsilon in Ivory turns up from time to time & parks around the corner from me in Bedfordshire, it's on German plates.

Talking of importing Ypsilon, I imported a new Elefantino Rosso(Great Car) from rotterdam in 1999, it had left hand drive headlamps (not centre dipped as suggested by some) & it had a Kilometres Speedo.
While you can get around the speedo by having a MPH overlay made , I have an address for someone who will do so for about £90 & your speedo for a couple of weeks.

THERE IS NO WAY around the headlamp problems, unless you have a friendly MOT tester when it comes to MOT time, who will pass it with the relevant part taped off,  strictly speaking even then it shouldn't pass as the regulations do not allow for this,  it also forbids beam benders fitted long term.

So the only way to get it registered in UK is on the basis if you don't want the DVLA to tell you it doesn't comply, don't ask the question.

When I brought mine in I was told that the Certificate of Conformity was being changed from reading that the vehicle met European specifications, to that it was a LHD vehicle, fitted with LHD Headlamps & A Kilometre Speedo, if this is now the case, you can only hope that whoever deals with the paperwork at the DVLA doesn't understand Italian.Dutch, German. or whatever language the C of C is written in.

I would be interested to know how the companies who currently offer to import Ypsilon, Thesis, get around this problem, I have emailed some of them & asked specifically how they get around the headlamp problem so that the imports are legal, to date I have not received a reply from any of them.

Brian  :cry:

Hello there Brian

Just to advise that there is  :wink: in fact a way to do this totally legally and the chaps at http://www.aarrtt.co.uk/Lancia.html have this sorted with proper RHD lights. No beam defelctors, no fiddles. They have paperwork to this effect. Ask for Mark Robbins - he will tell you all about it

Title: Lancias spotted
Post by: m tulloch on 17 June, 2006, 11:24:49 PM
I notice there's been no posts on this recently, so here's some to be going on with;
Integrale Evo, Dedra, Series 3 Thema, & Y10 Fila all in Swansea at the end of last year.
Series 2 Thema, & Italian Ypsilon in Leeds in the past 2 weeks.

There doesn't seem to be many Lancias of any description about on the roads at all. Have they all been scrapped?

I'm using a 1989 Thema Series 2 (bought off E-bay for £130) in May last year as an everday car (instead of the company Peugeot 307) & so far have clocked up over 34000 miles since.
The car has cost me around £1000 in total for this including £430 for a s/s exhaust, so it's been pretty good, still doing around 35mpg.  :D
If anyone knows of a late, low mileage Series 3, hopefully a Turbo, I'd be interested in it.

Thanks,

Matt.


Title: Spotted on M40

Black Integrale heading north near Oxford, yesterday at about 8am ish.

Post by: Harvey on 24 July, 2006, 08:02:22 AM
Chippenham and surroundings seemed to be a local hotspot for Dedras, but I've not seen any others for a while. Spotted a Thema whilst out for a bike ride yesterday. Burgundy, I think, but I was in the shade with my sunglasses on and only spotted it by the grille. (If you were the driver, I was grinning having spotted a Lancia, not 'cos I'm a loony!)


Title: Spotted in Carlisle
Post by: stuwilson128 on 27 July, 2006, 10:00:51 PM
I spotted a beautiful black Thema on an L-plate, parked in the centre of Carlisle today (27th July).  It was a pleasure to such a stunning example and brought a huge smile to my face! :D

Title: New Delta HF in Telford
Post by: lee69 on 15 October, 2006, 04:01:03 PM
I couldn't quite believe my eyes this afternoon when I saw a very yellow newish Delta HF turning into the B&Q car park at about 2.15pm.  I was in my Aygo as the Ypsilon was at home.

Does anyone know who's it is?

Title: Lancias spotted!
Post by: Rob on 16 October, 2006, 07:51:10 PM
Haven't seen any Lancias for a while then came across a tidy black Beta VX Coupe on a B plate in the works carpark (Airbus Filton) last week, then saw a very nice looking dark blue Delta HPE turbo driving through Parkway near Bristol. It cheers you up to see there's still a few die hards Lancsti out there  :D . Cheers Rob Macfarlane

Title: Lancia cars seen on the road
Post by: nyssa7 on 04 December, 2006, 02:22:01 PM
Not so much a spot - as it was me that was spotted!

Went on a jolly with Nissan on Friday, hooning the Pathfinder 4x4 round an off road course, then whizzing round the Kettering/Rockingham area in a Navara on test

When I got back, one of the Nissan guys came over and asked if the kappa was mine and said it was gorgeous

Not many within Lancia circles recognise the k coupe so I expressed some surprise. He told me he used to have a Gamma coupe and a Thema Turbo

Beta HPE: Silver, with ‘B’ Registration seen in rainy Muswell Hill (north London) at noon today - looking absolutely lovely in all its ‘70s period style. I am probably not alone in seeing cars like this simply being used on the road as more cheering than a similar car in a line-up at an LMC event. Keep it up, whoever you are!

I was amazed (good effort since it was raining!). Trouble is I'm not sure of the car model  :-[ - I would guess late 70's age - it had a VX on the grille and four headlights ... dunno the reg either :-[ and dbl :-[ ...

Anyone on here ? (My apologies but Monday AM on the M4 in S.Wales in the rain is tricky at the best of times!)

Seen on Saturday 10 March early afternoon turning north from Old Street to Goswell Road, central London – a Beta Saloon, 2000ES with registration number FJD 17V. This was on a trailer and covered with dust and blinking into the daylight after being underground for years, but looking absolutely lovely and full of promise on its way to a new home in Wiltshire in the care of new owner Andy Collins.

Dear Steve,
or can I call you spare,

I was a pilot until they stopped the duty free sales on board, damned if I'm going to pay
full price and then they had the nerve to say I couldn't smoke a cuban in the cockpit
I admit I pranged a couple of kites, apparently these autopilot jobies don't do landings,
of course the final straw was when they gave me a tottie as a co-pilot,
she wouldn't even make the coffee. What's the world coming too. I ask you.

Lancia Flavia Sedan seen yesterday afternoon on M25 southbound just after the M3 junction.
It was travelling at about 60 mph and achieveing amazing mpg (principally because it was on the back of an AA flatbed)  :(

dutch registered lambda tourer on the back of a monaco registered recovery truck heading north in Montelimar on Thursday.Pulled into the services where I was parked. I missed the driver of the truck and subsequently couldn't catch it on the motorway making it by some stretch the fastest lambda currently on the road i think...

Saw the lambda whilst heading back from Gruissan (nr Narbonne) to an overnight stop in Beaujolais (chenas).We live in northern (flemish) belgium.

As another writer correctly pointed out, fortune smiled on me and I could combine my hobby with work (torturing of political prisoners).
However, one thing led to another and Mrs Scarpia, the smaller Scarpias and I relocated to belgium 12 years ago...but what  brings an otherwise (apparently) rational man to the fields of France though?

Britanny Ferries, usually.

But seriously....

We've been here around seven years and, ironically, are just in the throes of moving back to Blairsville as I'm buying a UK business that can't easily be relocated.

I do think, though, that the torturing of political prisoners is SO important in the ever-changing world of the EU.  Doubtless those famous euro-twins (Norm and Grant) are providing you with adequate assistance in your chosen field.

Rational, moi?

I thought I detected the pangs for good old blighty with the reference to making a "curry" for Mrs Rodders some weeks ago.

As there is little prospect that they would allow me back in (and there are no indian take aways in belgium) I have become quite an adept indian cook in recent years.My Chicken Khara Masala and Jal Frezi are really not bad...this makes us almost entirely self sufficient of course.

At the car-park for the Vintage Sports-Car Club race meeting on 21 April at Silverstone. Seen through the windscreen of my Fulvia Sport S1 (hybrid): red Fulvia Coupe 1.3 S1, cream Fulvia Sport 1.3 S2, blue Fulvia Sport 1.6 S2 and two Lambdas, one black and the other green. Also, three Aurelia B20s were thought to be lurking in the distance. Lots of other exotic cars were there, but Lancia seemed to be very well represented. And so they should be!

Seen on Saturday 10 March early afternoon turning north from Old Street to Goswell Road, central London – a Beta Saloon, 2000ES with registration number FJD 17V. This was on a trailer and covered with dust and blinking into the daylight after being underground for years, but looking absolutely lovely and full of promise on its way to a new home in Wiltshire in the care of new owner Andy Collins.

Colin Marr

Spotted yesterday in St Nicholas Street, Bristol and at various traffic lights throughout Bristol City Centre.

I was on my way to the Surrey meeting. If I wasn't grinning it was probably because I realised that I had no idea of where I was going and had left my map at home.  ::)
It's a great pub to meet at but I reckon you'd need SatNav if not a local. Three Lancias in the car park but a good smattering of other Italian cars. Nice to catch up with people I hadn't seen for a while, and to meet more people I only knew by userid!

Cream-coloured Ypsilon, fairly recent UK plates, in Bath, and later on, a silver, earlier Ypsilon on European (maybe Italian?) plates, driving south into Bath.  Typically, I was in my Punto, not my Y10...

Plenty of Thesis in and around Le Mans this last week end, one even recognised the Dilambda and waved! Only British Lancia I spotted was a red F reg Delta (probably an quattro but just too far away for me to be sure).

Post by: YKR 567J on 20 June, 2007, 12:43:07 PM
Also at Le Mans a UK L-registered Fulvia coupe S2 in silver, left-hand drive and low headlamps. It was previously an Italian-registered car and still had its Italian front number plate behind the British one.

I plan to take my HF next year, but given this year's Peugeot onslaught I thought it more fitting to take my D-reg 205 GTI 1.9 this time.

John, Peugeot will win next year or at worse the year after so, come bring the HF to Classic Le Mans next year - that's where I think my money will be spent.


Title: Re: Lancia cars seen on the road
Post by: RhysHF on 21 June, 2007, 04:18:28 AM
I have been to Le Mans a few times now and after getting my HF I did think it would be really nice to go down there in it. I have considered the Le Mans Classic and there are some plus points around how crowded it can get plus many of the older cars are actually more exciting.

If anyone is considering taking their car next year I'd be interested in possibly getting something together.

Jai started the HSCC 70s Roadsports race 16th on the grid of 32 and finished 9th, way ahead of his class rivals.

Well, not exactly ‘seen on the road’, but seen on UK TV this evening, In a BBC4 programme ‘Tintin and Me’ there was a telling portrait of Georges Remi, better known as Herge. This was based mostly on interviews with him in 1970 and included a film clip of  him driving a car through Brussels – the wooded Lancia badged steering wheel and dash looking oh so Flavia 2000. Wonderful!

Lovely dark green open Lambda on the old A41 at Bourne End, near Hemel Hempstead, early this evening (Sun 16th). Its owner waved because I was in my Fulvia HF. What are the chances of a random Lambda/Fulvia encounter like this happening? I was on cloud nine.

John,

That would have been Mike Guest’s lovely Lambda on its way home after meeting up with about 99 other Lancias in the Piazza in Covent Garden to celebrate 100 years of Lancia in the UK. You may remember this was an event I emailed you about ages ago, but unfortunately you couldn’t attend. Lots of lovely cars there, from 1910 through to 2007, including all the variants of Fulvias  – a real pity that you missed it. Cloud 9? Yes.

Colin.

Post by: YKR 567J on 16 September, 2007, 09:20:18 PM
Yes, I'd have loved to have gone to Covent Garden but was on my way back from Krakow today, of all places. Why Krakow? It's near the Fiat Panda/500/Seicento plant at Tychy, which I was visiting. A fascinating place, the biggest car factory in Eastern Europe and the highest in production quality of all the Fiat plants, apparently. Krakow is intriguing, too, and we had dinner in a salt mine.

I didn't see a single Lancia of any age in Poland, sadly, but plenty of old Fiat-based cars plus a Syrena which FSM (which has grown by circuitous means into the current Fiat Auto Poland operation) used to build. having not driven my Fulvia for a whole week I needed to give it an airing, so I got home and out of the garage it came.

Glad the Piazza event was a success. I'd have been there if I could.

Robin,

Having looked on the internet at some images of older Lancia models the Dilambda lookes like the best fit, what I saw was a 2 door convertible with the same raked back radiator. The car was a mid blue colour with black wings, RHD and there was a gent driving and a female passenger.

I have searched on the internet to see if I can find out what the event was but I have been unable to come up with anything. The cars were arriving at Blarney House next to Blarney Castle at around lunch time on the 20th.

Rhys,

Thanks for your efforts to identify the car you saw. Certainly sounds as though it is an early 30s Lancia, Dilambda or Astura.

Can you remember the headlights? If it was a Dilambda they shoud be shield shaped, the only Lancia model ever fitted with them. Having said that the 'Steady' Barker Dilambda was fitted with round ones from new!

Nice one Colin but no, sorry,  different car, recounting a trip across France in a Dilambda and titled On the Horns of a Dilambda. Another reprint for Viva Lancia! perhaps?.

Steady's Dilambda has an English James Young saloon body and I believe was fitted with round headlights from new. Its currently being rebuilt to an incredibly high standard by Keith Bowley at Ashton Keynes Vintage Restorations. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Rhys,

That is my Dilambda.

Worth noting though that when ordered from Lancia you could specify the coach builder who's body you wanted fitted to your car, so there are scarcely two the same. Mine is a series 2 so has the sloping radiator grill and blade front bumper. An Astura is another possibility although everything was scaled down in size for that model.

Hope that you can find out more as another Dilambda (or indeed Astura) would be a great find.

Robin.

At Silverstone on Saturday afternoon:

A green Aurelia B20 being driven by Chris Gawne, looking absolutely lovely with the rear-end gently drifting out through Copse, but sadly outperformed by the much younger disc-braked sports cars in this race. And later a fantastic duel between Jai Sharma’s red Fulvia 1600 HF and Jason Kennedy in a red Beta Coupe with the lead changing at alternate corners – the final result being Jai finishing just ahead of Jason after a close run in through Luffield. Meanwhile Louise Kennedy’s Fulvia Zagato 1.3 was fighting it out with an Alfa 2000 GTV having managed to get past it at least once.

All wonderful stuff in glorious weather - mind you, the results would have been better for Lancia if it had been wet! Yet again I was left with the feeling that it is my good fortune to see such lovely cars used with real purpose – thanks Louise, Jason, Chris and Jai. More next year please.

Rhys.

Further to your sighting, Morris Parry has brought to my notice an item in the Finds and Discoveries section of The Automobile for November and I wonder if it could be the same car.

The car pictured is a 1932 Astura in what looks like pale blue and with a body style very similar to my Dilambda. It belongs to John and Jeanne Wilkinson who live in County Carlow.
Is this anywhere near where you made your sighting?

I'm trying to get in contact with the Wilkinsons.

Robin,

This could be the car, Carlow itself is about 120 miles from Blarney and the driver was a man with a female sat next to him so you could be on the right track.

I did e-mail Blarney Castle but they have not responded.

Two in one week, Lancia's are getting common!  First, I saw a yellow Integrale Evo on the M5 near West Brom on Sunday, about 3pm.  Today I spotted a Dutch registered, red Dedra heading east on the A5 near Shrewsbury.

No-one's spotted me in the Fulvia yet, but I did get a wave from a chap in a Ferrari 348 yesterday  ;D

Peter, you think I had time to look in the mirror, I was trying to master the clutch and column change for a good few miles!

Spotted a white Integrale (8v or 16v) heading out of Bridgnorth towards Kiddermister at about 2pm today.  Probably off to spend some money at Tanc's.

Here are a few photos of a Delta prototype:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/guymcdougall/sets/72157604110590467/

My apologies for the small number, but I was too busy driving the car on our roads in South Africa.

I've also been 'arguing in my spare time' with my computer, and have a 2 page article of driving impressions in the works.

Do you think this too long for the forum, or can it wait until the next V-L?

(This is a copy of a post I made under the 'New Delta' thread.)

Great photos Guy,

Can now see a bit more detail, particularily the interior & underbonnet shots, must say it does look a bit of a big beast compared to the Monte; as for the article, go for it I can't see any of us complaining ;D and why not send it to Jack for "Viva Lancia" so that no one gets left out.

Fulvia S1 (I think) spotted travelling south on the A51 (Rugeley road) into Lichfield at about 5.45 today.  Driver wearing what looked like a very rakish leather cowboy hat.  I was in my Delta, and waved, and think I got a belated hoot of recognition as he passed.  Someone returning from the CLS Curborough event?

Strangly no Fulvias participated, although the full house included Gamma, Appia, all varieties of integrale, a couple of nice Porsche a race prepared Alfa 75 and Suburu Imprezza. Everyone had at least four sessions and the weather was perfect. The instructer was exhausted come six oclock. Great full afternoon for around £50.

On holiday in Malta at the moment, seen one ypsilon but more interesting, a photo of an alfa engine'd fulvia used in hill climbs in the late seventies.According to the museum curator it was fitted with a 1600 driving through the orginal 'box.As the engine was longer than the V4 the nose has an extension on it not unlike a Flavia Vignale.The owner was a Mr Tony Bugeja, if anyone knows more.

Post by: karrozzi on 26 August, 2008, 10:14:10 PM
I have heard of the Alfa engined Fulvia myself, I take it you have seen the pictures at the motor museum on tourist street in Buggiba. There are several lancias in everyday use on the island. In the sleima and St Julians area I know of an immaculate gold Prisma, two Dedras and at least one early Fulvia which are in daily use. There are more than a few Ypsilon Kappas and Y10s that I spotted in the six years that I lived there. The Maltese hold Lancia in quite high regard as a brand. If you can, visit the old airfield at Hal Far. Every sunday there is a gathering of interesting cars here, and they also race on the dragstrip most of the morning. Lots of old sixties Italian stuff to be seen, You may even spot my old Alfa 164 30v6 in metallic green, the reg is MGH 164! Let me know if you do!

You reply on the day I leave !! You are correct in where is saw the photo, and I did see an Alfa 164 (silver) but I didn't catch the registration plate, and a very nice early GTV. There seem to be quite alot of older cars in good condition motoring around, but it will have to wait another year or so before I get to the airfield. A great place to go for a holiday if anyone is thinking, plenty of history to get into and the sea is great for snorkling  :)

Seen and enjoyed in Kent this afternoon – two Fulvia Coupes, both were being raced at Brands Hatch in the HSCC’s 70s Road Sports Championship. One was a blue S2 1600HF being driven by Ken Rorrison and the other a lime (?) S3 1300 being driven by Stuart Downward. Both drivers are in their first racing season and did well to finish in a big field. And both were Class winners of their different classes! The final race of this series is at Silverstone on 18 October.

Driving home last night  on the unlight A4130 (Henley to Maidenhead) around 11pm my headlights picked up the number plate A** HPE in front. Must be a Lancia I thought and when it joined the A404 sure enough it was a red HPE. HPE's are rare enough (especially at night!) let alone a Lancia around Maidenhead.

 Not quite on the road but parked up on a driveway in Steeple Ashton in Wiltshire, I spotted what looked like a late Fulvia coupe in pale blue. It looked like it had not moved for a while, and was on aftermarket alloys. I did not have time to investigate further as I was at work and the boss was driving! It is very local to me (Westbury) so I will pop back and investigate soon. Anyone on here know of it?

The M54/A5 is something of a Lancia hot spot - spotted a French registered (Region 62) Thesis heading west past Shrewsbury at 5.30 last Friday.  The Thesis looks wonderful on the move, the lad in the Saxo VTR following it was very interested!

Red Fulvia coupe on a transporter with a number of other classics on the way into Bath at about 8:20 this morning. Probably headed south for the A36. Can't tell you what the other cars were - they weren't Lancias so not important, really!!

As yet not a sighting, but advance notice of what you might see, or probably miss:

Early tomorrow morning (21 November) I will be tooling my Fulvia Sport round the North Circular in rush-hour traffic to Chiswick and then, hopefully zipping it down the M4 to what should be a cold but sunny Wiltshire. This is to take part in a photo-shoot for Classic Cars magazine. The idea is yet another comparison between Zagato Lancia and Alfa Romeo cars from the 1960s. Should be good.

Hi Peter,

I saw the driver as I stopped and he passed me, and I'm pretty sure is wasn't Don?

Interesting you saw him in Broadway, what time was that? as I'd just come from the M5 at Tewkesbury and I wasn't hanging about, when it suddenly appeared behind me just before upper Swell.

Blue (and salty!) Fulvia Berlina (S2 I think?)driving through Hawkhurst (Kent) this morning just before 10am, did not recognise it at first as it had a radiator muff fitted and it just took that bit longer to register.
At least he was driving in the right direction as nothing was moving westbound!

You don't see many and then they come out in two's and three's! Seen recently in Worthing - a vey smart Beta Coupe in what I can only describe as a dark metalic copper colour, an S1 Beta Monte Carlo in mid -blue with  an elderly gentleman at the wheel (good on you sir) and a lovely white S2 Fulvia Coupe that apparently lives not 10 minutes walk from my house and that I did not know existed until I rang up a local car upholsterer to enquire about recovering my Appia front seats only to be told that he had just finished a complete reupholstery job on the said Fulvia! (Dark blue seats with cream piping).
Next day - just surfing Lancia on ebay and what do I find???................. yes - the Beta Coupe that I mentioned yesterday! My colour description appears to be a bit out though. If any member is interested but is not in easy reach of Worthing I would be willing to have a first look for them just to check it is as per the ad.

2 x Delta HPE
3 x Ypsilon (a bi-colore in orange and black, a cream Oro, and a classy-looking black one)
1 x Kappa coupe
2 x Lybra
2 x Musa

Better than last time! Tried to find a Lancia dealer, too, but the address listed had a suspiciously-empty showroom.  :(

A weekend in Amsterdam provided some surprises

For the first time ever - or at least since 1998 - I managed to avoid calling in at Auto Halan! And didn't seee a single Y10 all weekend, where have they suddenly all gone

First Lancia spot of the weekend was from the train from Schipol, a new Delta. First of 2 for the weekend, along with 2 x Thesis, a Musa, a Lybra, a Delta and a few current Ypsis. Two were bi-colore, one looked smart in dark grey over silver, but what was going on in the other guy's head - light metallic blue over cream!

And a very rare spot for Amsterdam, an Evo 1 in dark blue

Called in to a nursery to pick up some plants today and as I left noticed the same UK registered Thesis that I've spotted around Shrewsbury before. Had a chat with the elderly gent that owns it, who it turns out is originally from San Marino (he has a RSM identifier on the rear). He takes the Thesis back every summer. First time I've seen on close up and in the flesh and I have to admit it's very special, with real presence. I mentioned that the AGM/National Rally will be just round the corner and he's going to try and come along.

Also spotted the same 2WD Delta that I saw a few weeks ago, this time in Frankwell, Shrewsbury by the English Bridge. It's a red J reg HFie with an AIM badge on the grill and driven by a lady.

These are the only Lancia's I've seen for some weeks, if I look out of my back door, sadly there's not a single one to be seen!

ok, we towed the HF to the start of the Marathon and back home again, a round trip of 3,400kms. In between the car covered some 2,500kms of difficult competition owing to the bad weather. It rained pretty well non-stop for six days, enough to create huge washaways on the narrow unmade mountain roads. We finished fortieth out of sixty two but I should have done better considering how well the car went. The event was won outright by an Alfa Romeo Guilia.

Aha, managed to get my cameraphone out (while stationary of course) to catch the red 2WD Delta (H186 YYJ) that lives in and around Shrewsbury - looks like a daily driver. It's not Tom's red LHD GTie.

Took the Alvis to the next door village Fete today - usually a couple of local Lancisti there and this year was no different. Although Paul Atkinson was on holiday, Ivan Rhodes bought his RR 20/25 and Brian Hands his Agusta. Lovely car.

Seen in Dean Street, Soho last Friday evening – see photo. A lovely Lambda tourer apparently being driven by someone in fancy-dress pretending to be the Lord Mayor! Looked to me he was trying to gate-crash a stylish reception for some Italian big-wigs. The car certainly helped his credibility. Rumour has it that the event was rather good too.

Shot from the "chase car" on the way to Goodwood. Modest little garage she is in until next weekend - the C-type is the ex-Rolt/Hamilton car that won Le Mans in '53, thats the back of an XJ 220 and the front of an XK13 Proteuos Replica, the ex Hawthorn '55 D-type will be joining them during the week as well as an ex-works lightweight E-Type. As I said ....a modest little collection  ;D

Seen at Brands Hatch today - the most amazing race between two Fulvias: Ken Rorrison in his S2 1600 Coupe racing against Alex Childs in his Fulvia Sport 1600. This was a twenty minute race and between the two of them, the lead changed every lap, until Ken’s car started to run on three and had to retire. The following snaps at Paddock Hill Bend don’t do justice to it, but they might give an impression of how it was. Wonderful!

Seen this afternoon on Kop Hill Climb, this Lambda (see photo below) being driven up the hill by Howard Morgan - looking and sounding great. Chris Hopkins was also on the hill in his Fulvia Coupe and was one of the few cars to produce wheel-spin on take–off.

Other Lancias there included Brian Hilton’s ‘fay’, Peter Loftus’ Fulvia Sport and my Sport. And it was a pleasure again to meet friend-on-the-forum Roger Elias, but I didn’t see what car he came in.

Does anybody know anything about this car as it has been to some club events
in the past. It has all Aprilia running gear with some kind of space frame chassis.

Did we all get cameraphones for our birthdays? It's great to actually see the spotted cars in the wild.

Anyway, much to my surprise I was driving through Wellington in Shropshire last week when I was amazed to see a green (Verde York) integrale Evo, reg K5 CWS go in the opposite direction along Whitchurch Road. I didn't wave or flash as I was in the smart.

I now deliver to a customer in Shifnal. Over the road is a very weathered red F-reg Delta Turbo, intact but with various additional body panels and trim stuffed in the interior. Will try and get a pic next time I'm there.

Title: Re: Lancia cars seen on the road
Post by: ColinMarr on 28 September, 2009, 08:24:26 PM
This is an Aprilia Special, built by Tim Britnell and featured in the 1978 LMC 30/50 event to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the LMC. A photo by Roger Perry of this car with others has already been posted on this forum. It is scanned and in the LMC photo archive as LMC 44. It also features in the LMC film of the same event. Good to see the car still exists. Tim and the car were listed in the 1985 Members Register living in High Wycombe, but not in the 1991 issue. Who owns it now I wonder?

PS. Delighted to see Ade’s post and to learn that Tim Britnell still owns it and hopefully still exists!

PPS

I should have added the photograph from the digital (and searchable) archive – here it is below. And its caption is:


Line-up at LMC 30/50 event in 1978. Front row: the Chequered Flag Stratos, Barry Waterhouse in Fulvia Sport (Rastos), Tim Britnell in Aprilia Special. 2nd row: Barrie Crowe in Aurelia B20, John Savage in Aurelia B20 and Dave Scheldt in Aprilia. Roger Perry photograph.

Spotted yesterday and again today - the red Beta coupe. I was on my bike yesterday, and the lower speed gave me the chance to spot the car earlier and get the registration number - VEE616V.  Both spots were on the road between Box and Chippenham, so I'm narrowing down where the car resides...

Went home to Milton Keynes to visit my parents at the weekend and saw a white Delta Turbo Martini at the junction of Millers Way and Great Monks Street on Saturday at about  4.30pm. A little bit scabby around the door bottoms but it still had all of its stripes. This must have been a Ganderton's of Buckingham car as its reg was F374 YRP, my Y10, also from Ganderton's was F368 YRP.

Seen in Chiswick yesterday lunchtime

A very rare Aprilia Pininfarina convertible (1939) owned by Ron Purbrick arriving at the Lambda Lunch (as advertised in the current issue of Viva Lancia!) Sadly, this lovely car suffered clutch failure just outside the pub and had to be helped into a parking space. Hopefully this was only a problem with the clutch linkage and all will be fixed soon.

Another Lancia in Maidenhead is a rarity but I glimpsed a Lancia Kappa on the Bath Rd by Redroofs Theatre day school (where Oscar winners go) at 10.30 this morning. I was so astonished that all I can say it was dark blue.....whether it was the saloon or coupe I couldn't say. I will look out again next Saturday.

Sightings in Oz
Having given Peter Renou his Appia Series 3 back after the Castlemaine Rally (many, many thanks Peter - can I run your Astura next time???) , I left the event in my hired Toyota Camry (better than you might think) and within 1/4 mile saw a black Beta Spyder - top(s) down driven by a fairly young guy with whom I asume to be his two small daughters in the back - AND THIS CAR HAD NOT BEEN ON THE CASTLEMAINE RALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jumped on the Victoria Goldfields Railway steam train for a bit of nostalgia - sat down in the ladies carraige (well it was the most comfortable) and got talking to a steam buff who had travelled some 1,500 odd miles to experience this train and when I explained that I had just been on the national Lancia Rally he immediately responded - "Oh my best friend in Queensland has  a Lambda" !!! - OK not seen, but what a coincidence!
About 3 weeks later in the Blue Mountains and goodness knows how many thousands of miles later I glimpsed  a Lancia badge on a  parked car as I swept by. Hard braking and a "Uie" saw me heading back in time to see that it was a 2000 Berlina but not in time to perform another "180" before the owner gunned it down the road - so near and yet.....
 - and this is in a country some 18 times larger than the UK which has not had a Lancia dealer imported car since about 1983(no deltas)!!!

Now heading south on the Autostrada from Siena and all going well. All the tricky bits are now mastered – in and out of any gear at any speed is a doddle. Still can’t find the heater controls though. Rear vision is rubbish, but what the hell?

Yesterday had a bit of a run in with some blokes in Mexican outfits thinking I could help them find an Appia Camoncino - I ask you!

I guess I will have to give in soon.

It's amazing how your Lancia Radar works, managing to spot the merest detail of a car to identify it as a Lancia whilst driving by at 50mph! Whilst on the A458 at Halfway House between Shrewsbury and and the border with Powys I spotted a red integrale Evo off the main road. I've never seen it there before but also noticed a rally prepped car on a trailer at the same house, possibly a Peugeot. I'll have to slow down next week and have a look.

If it was immaculate then it's almost certainly Bob's, I put a "for sale" notice on the Forum about it a few months ago, high mileage but probably the best one you'll find anywhere.

Over at a suspension specialist in Hampshire on Wednesday, surprised to see a kappa saloon 20vt outside, even more surprised to see a kappa sw 20v there also

Turns out they have the full set, also got a kappa coupe 20vt. Knew I was dealing with the right people at that point  :D

As I pulled off the AI at Morpeth two weeks ago yesterday after a 400 mile drive up from Sussex to enjoy some fresh air walking, the first car I saw was a very smart metallic grey Flavia Coupe. Known to the club?

Yesterday whilst driving along the A27 in Worthing - yes back to the clogged up Sussex roads! A black Thesis with black tinted windows went the other way. I think it was on foreign plates.

Just for interest - on my holiday for a week plus! in the Napoli area this month, I saw far more Lancias than Alfas and not only small ones.  Lots of new Deltas and some Phedras. Is this common throughout Italy or is it down to the proximity of appropriate dealers?

Lancia's market share in Italy is consistently around the 4.5% mark and increasing. Alfa by contrast is experiencing a decline in home sales, hovering around 2% market share. Alfa really is the proverbial drain for Fiat.

Ypsilon is a rearly nice looking car and great fun to drive, if anyones interested my old elefantino Rosso that I imported in 1999, is for sale on ebay, still looking good, and being sold by it's third (including me) Lancia Motor Club Member.

Dedra's have mostly fallen into the hands of people who wanted the car but couldn't afford, or didn't want to pay the cost of servicing, incorrect or lack of proper servicing is a real killer as far as Dedra is concerned, hence so very few about, in actual fact Will How's old HF turned up at the Brooklands Autoitalia day the other week much to Will's surprise, still looking pretty good for it's age.

Hi Alan,
Spent a few days with friends enjoying the view over the Tamar and the bridge from their conservatory and garden overlooking the river ;D
I had intended giving you a call on our way back yesterday, but too much traffic, including 100's of motorbikes taking part in some sort of run, :D
So we headed for the Hills, or in our case the semi flatlands of Bedfordshire :D

Is the Thesis known in your part of the world or was it a visitor?

Yes, she ran well yesterday coping brilliantly with the heavy London traffic. Details of the over heating problem will appear on the Modestine thread.

Excellent event too. Around 50 Lambda (and one Dilambda!) enthusiasts met up at The White Swan Fetter Street for a superb lunch and convivial chat. Many thanks to John Turner for the arrangements.

You could question of these Lancias were actually seen 'on' the road !!

On Tuesday this week in the grounds of Glasgow airport I see a car transporter with no less than 3 Fulvia Coupes on it, all rally prepared and being delivered to start the Monte Carlo Classic from the Glasgow starting venue.

I do have a picture of the transporter complete with the cars ... but the file seems to be too big to fit on this forum

walking through Bath yesterday I spotted two Deltas within minutes of each other. One late Evo in Lord blue on an N plate, and then a late Hf turbo in black on a J plate. Both looked in nice order but were going in different directions so I think it was pure coincidence.  I think the Hf turbo is possibly the one I spotted last year on the A46 near Bath. Great to see a couple of Lancias on the road. ;D

In the 2000 Register of owners and their cars it belonged to a Mr J.B.Robinson Alexandra Ave, Meole Brace Shrewsbury, is it the same place? or perhaps he's moved since then but stayed in the same area.
And is listed under Delta HF 4WD.

Hello Robin

That was me - I was leaving the Six Bells in a bit of a hurry - I'm only down the road from you in Hooe.

Would be good to meet up sometime.  I have the aforementioned B24 spider bought as a project from Colin Buckmaster's estate and a scuro blue sixth series B20. My son (passenger on Saturday) has a second series 1600HF, and funniy enough we were wondering whereabouts you are in Chiddingly.

Agree !

But if you own  new delta or one of the other models do you become a member of the lancia motor club or the chrysler club.

On the brighter side at least there is a extremely faint link between the two manufacturers when it came to winning rallys many years ago, chrysler with the sunbeam later to become the talbot sunbeam lotus driven by  Henri Toivonen who went from there to eventually the delta s4.

Hello Robin - yes that was me, the B20 has seen lots of use of late. I did see a BM 5 series estate who flashed, didn't think it was at me of course :)

Seen on the VSCC forum:-
 Originally Quoted By Steve Jones
Broken down on the hard shoulder of the M62 late Friday afternoon - a Lancia Stratos!

More likely one of those replicas?

That shows how incredibly accurate some of these replicas are!

The Navy 73 D reg Fulvia is a low light car. I think it was a South African car. Its for sale on a European website at the moment, Google Lancia Fulvia Ireland and you will find it. The red Fulvia was spotted on the way back from a new Delta test drive With Daragh, I met the owner before whe he was stuck for an engine but he has no interest in the club. The photo is taken from the passenger seat of my Thema, so I suppose there are two lancia's in the picture  ;D

Another Fulvia - this time a shiny red Sport junction 9 M25 yesterday afternoon - curiously it had 2 registrations, a 'J' plate at the front and a private plate at the back - not sure what Plod will make of that.

Badged as a 1600 but isn't 'J' a year too early for 1600s?

No it was a UK plate 3 letters, 3 numerals and 'J', denoting a mid 70 to mid 71 registration I believe.

I think the Jersey ones are 'J" and a string of numerals?

Seen lots recently, including several, plus two Deltas, when driving the National Weekend routes. Took this as a good omen. I think Chrysler are having a big push at the dealers, as the one near me has six Ypsilons lined up at the roadside flanked by two Deltas, looks fairly impressive. Just a pity they don't have their proper badges!

Very nice Powder Blue Monte Carlo heading north bound on the A77 Bypass at Ayr (Wednesday 5/9/12 at around 6:15pm). I think it was a Series1 as I couldn't make out the outline oif a grille between the headlamps.

I was in a Lancia Blue Flavia Coupe PF, but I don't think the other drive recognised my car as a Lancia despite me waving my arm out the window.

Some sort of modern Ferrari went by seconds before, but I don't know one new Ferrari from another as they all look like red halibut to me.  :P

When I was returning from Italy about 6 weeks ago I was lamenting the few Lancias I had seen there - except for Musas (Musi?) which were everywhere! - when a Thesis swept by at great speed  - I noted that it appeared to be stretched a little but thought nothing of it.

At the AGM I mentioned this to Paul Baker who got extremely excited as I gather only 2 or 3 were ever made   - he was very disappointed that a did not get a photo but as I told him I was driving at the time!

The look of the Ypsilon is growing on me I have to say. Loads of delivery mileage examples on Autotrader for around £8K. Mmm. Our local Chrysler dealer has been shut down by JCT600 so it doesn't look like anything Chrysler is selling well, although the Deltas seem to command nearer their list price.

On the main road from Marbella to Malaga last Wednesday morning (okay, okay) a pimento coloured Stratos! Or admittedly probably a replica. On the opposite carriageway so not good enough view to be sure.

BTW, seeing the thread about 'almost-Lancias' above, we have now had our delivery-mileage white Ypsilon for 4 months and WE LOVE IT! It was a real bargain at £6750 - compare that with Fiat 500 prices. And it's got 5 doors! It is a bit slow (though cruises happily at 85) but I'll get Keith to gradually breathe on it... shhhhh.......

You make a great PI, you’re absolutely right I was having a morning run up to Stanford Hall. Did Neil say there’s a Flaminia in Surbiton, as I live next door in Kingston?    

By the way the Prisma looked great.

Going through this post today and just realised that the above Black Monte 811CRV is my old car I gifted to Jez Pigden of the MC Consortium. I believe the deal was when he gets it through the MOT I can have the registration back.

Walking on the road through Alexandra Park (north London) late last evening in clear moonlight - from behind me there was the sharp sound of tyres squeak and a rumble from a slowing engine. The car passed me slowly and in the lights of the car following I could see it was Integrale E249 NOW. I guess he hadn’t been much bothered about the 20 MPH limit on that road, which is never enforced anyway.

As I was parked on the roadside just off the A417 to the south of Didcot adjusting the c/b points on my Aprilia on Friday afternoon a dark blue Fulvia Sport motored past. Much to my chagrin it failed to stop,despite much arm-waving on my part.

(I was approaching the village of Aston Upthorpe having arranged to meet an old lady and remind her of the wonders of the Aprilia. Fortunately the operation on the points was successful and the lady was suitably impressed to be reminded of the car in which she had taken her driving test, around 1955!)

Lambda - 7th Series Weymann Saloon. Seen on the road in Hackney this afternoon – the first time on the road for almost 40 years. This is the late John Turner’s car being transported away to have the remaining trimming done and finishing off after a long drawn out and painstakingly thorough restoration. One little detail to enjoy underneath is the escapimento – seen here in pristine condition before the engine is run for the first time.

There is a red Integrale here in Wilton near Salisbury.

The owner also ownes a car repair bodyshop here which is quite handy as I think the car has spent some time within it!  But he drives it daily to work and so on and loves it.  It sounds great too.
It was seing this car that reminded me how much I liked them so I started looking for one.  Nice one though above my budget but in any case doubt if I could have coped with LHD.  Eventually found the Delta Turbo which I am very pleased with.  I am suprised at just how quick it is but then have not had a turbo car before.  Did have a Golf GTI mark 1 many years ago and the Delta seems much quicker.  Perhaps memory playing tricks but I dont think so.  It stops better too!

A couple of Lancias spotted in Narbonne.  We saw something every time out. Tempted to buy a dry one?  Here's what's on offer in the region.  Betas and Y10s still, lots of Dedras, a Prisma.

The town:

If ever in Narbonne "Chez Bebelle" in the covered market is great fun, and a delicious horse steak.  He's an ex-rugby player setup next to all the butchers.  When an order comes in he picks up the megaphone to call it down to the appropriate butcher.  When ready they blast on their particular whistle for him to catch it as it is thrown back.  Another time I might chance the Tartare which was very popular there.

I was very pleased to see when we visited Narbonne back in the 1990's that McDonalds hadn't got away with their corporate image, and their place was painted blue.
The Lancia dealer in Narbonne was great and gave us a ride in what was then the new Kappa, even though I'd told him that we were unlikely to buy one. They also had a Y10 that had a clear panel in the tailgate and behind the panel was matching cloth to the interior.
Lovely place.

Had an orange interior, don't think it had rear headrests which would make it a 1300 but cannot be sure as soon as it had it appeared it had gone and I did not get a proper look.

Yes. A poor showing of cars this year. No Augustas, only one Lambda, one Dilambda and one Aprilia. Even only one B20 and one Aurelia Saloon. I have two pretty good reasons for my cars not attending, but why so few others?
The venue was great, apart from poor bar service and the usual extortionate price of drinks.
Regards, John

Possibly too many other commitments such as work or families on a Saturday.

The weather and the forecast wouldn't have helped - but I thought a good turnout of people for the meeting - perhaps more of those that did go were driven inside by the weather?

Excellent turn out at Wrest Park on the Sunday after the run, we had 28 cars all lined up together in the Walled Garden Car Parking with 52 drivers & Passengers.
As we had to get everyone through into the house before part of it closed for a Wedding it was likened by someone as akin to herding cats :D
However everyone had time to go aand have a look before the rooms closed, although the rooms containing the exhibition and all of the gardens were still open.
I then took a party of 26 on a tour of the Chinese Wallpapered Bedroom and dressing room, as well as the French Wallpapered room, using one of the steep servants staircases which were a bit of a struggle for some including me! as we were unable to use the lovely staircase  from the hall.

On Wednesday, a 1.3 Fulvia coupe on the M25 with 5.5. inch cromodoras. Haven't seen a Fulvia in the wild for some time. Was going the other way - the Fulvia was heading towards a pretty long queue, hope it didn't get blocked for too long.

In the dealer and then auction pictures it looked a real treat.  The story was that it came from a 200 (or so) car collection in Italy and was restored by that owners full time in house team and it came to the UK in a batch when he had a clear out.

this legal stuff is ambiguous. My MOT man (he is very strict and thorough) said that if the car carried a smaller number plate surround pre 73 ie silver on black style and that the numer plate was readable then it was legal. Indeed most Lancias have a rear numberplate surround which you cannot get 7standard size symbols in side without reducing the font size. The front bumpers are pre drilled for the italian stainless suround......this discussion exists elsewhere on the forum....

Not such a novelty here in southern Italy seeing a Lancia on the road so I have conducted some statistical research.
While waiting at the side of a busy road with nothing better to do I counted 100 cars going by and 8 were Lancias.
The next 100 resulted in 11 Lancias - so as near as makes no difference that equates to about 10%.....more than I was expecting.

White Fulvia Coupe with black roof. Possibly LHD with Italian plates? In a driveway in a village east of Ipswich. Couldn't stop, I was in a cycle race.

During the same race I also passed an early sixties Ferrari, not sure of the model, but that was on the road. Given the debate on here about values, I found it heartening that it was getting driven. The cloud of un-burnt petrol fumes I rode through behind it was far preferable to the usual whiff of diesel!

If you've seen a Lancia around, let everyone know they've been spotted. One day you might even see yourself mentioned!

Gracing the roads of north London today – Fulvia S2 Berlina KPD 569K

The proud new owner of this magnificent vehicle, Simon Duval Smith called by today to show it off with a new MOT certificate freshly printed out yesterday. The car looked lovely with its understated 1970s charm, which is a bit compromised now because most people would think it was a Lada, but no matter – the Lancia stylists got there first and Ladas are now a faded memory! Lancia Blue suits this car very well, but currently the almost matt-flat finish is a bit surprising – not so much ‘stealth’ (as in the bomber) because in places it’s almost ‘Anaglypta’ in depth of texture, but I am sure Simon will soon sort this out. Anyway, in the rain it still looks glossy.

The journey north from its previous retirement home in rural Sussex was not without incident. The Sussex cobwebs were well blasted away by the time we got to Kenley, and a few drivers of moderns looked surprised to be outgunned by this elderly blue-box. The look of fear and horror on the face of the back seat passenger in the BMW at Purley was entirely misplaced. He just didn’t understand that when the rear pads had been binding on and boiling off the brake fluid it was inevitable that the following Lancia would have been unable to stop without mounting the kerb and running alongside for a bit – silly man! And it was no use shouting to him that “We have got dual circuit brakes!!!” Anyway, after a hour in the rain at the Shell garage with lots of water and steam to cool it all down, a with a few basic tools to free-off the remains of the pads, Simon had sorted it out and all was plain sailing.

I think KPD is destined for an interesting new life.

Colin

Title: Re: Lancia cars seen on the road
Post by: ColinMarr on 01 April, 2016, 09:14:48 AM
I hear rumblings of discontent and I worry that I might have unintentionally given offence – perhaps I need to correct any false impressions.

When I referred to its previous home as a ‘Sussex retirement home’, this wasn’t to suggest it was a ‘care home’. On the contrary – it was a very fine place to languish for a while in anticipation of a demanding life yet to come. It certainly wasn’t a case of being put out to grass, although the accumulated green algae (which were quite deep in some places) might have nurtured this idea.

Any allegations of hooligan driving on the A22 should be dismissed. It was a bank-holiday weekend and as everyone knows, overtaking on that road needs to be done with care. It wasn’t our fault that the Nissan left his braking so late that he locked-up – Simon knew that all he had to do in the Fulvia was keep on the gas and around it would go. And in that way it was perfectly understandable that Simon wouldn’t know that he had lost the brake pedal until we caught up with that BMW. It doesn’t say much for modern motorists that nobody tried to alert us to the flames and smoke that must have been coming off that rear wheel!

I don’t think I need say any more about the Shell garage at Kenley, but if he is looking for a good Tripadvisor rating he might do better than offer a pair of office scissors by way of tools to help get the wheel-trim off! However, the micro-waved Ginsters were a redeeming feature.

I should also say that the man in the Audi who tried to squeeze us out on the Camberwell Road should have known better than to hold a grudge all the way to Blackfriars Bridge. The fact that Simon held his cool and gave way at the last moment was much to his credit. That was what Lancia motoring is all about.

Colin


Title: Re: Lancia cars seen on the road
Post by: Dilambdaman on 01 April, 2016, 09:54:52 AM
Thanks for the update Colin, I'm relieved that you made it home and that she's obtained a new MOT. I absolutely hate selling a car to someone I know, especially when it's not been used on the road for thick end of a year. I did offer up a silent prayer as you left me and had a lump in my throat at the sound of the typical Fulvia exhaust note as Simon gunned her up the drive. I was in awe of his cheerful confidence in setting off on the journey with virtually no tools, something I would never be brave enough to do.

So, having admitted my discomfort at selling to a friend (hope we still are Colin and Simon) I'm absolutely delighted that KPD has gone to someone who will love and cherish her. And, that we will all get to see her from time to time, she will always have a special place in mine and Margaret's Lancia memories bank.

Robin.

Fulvia S2 Berlina KPD 569K - enriching the streets of Belgravia today!

KPD didn’t make it to the Goodwood Trackday yesterday, but it was seen and admired in good company today at a somewhat posh gathering of fine cars in Chesham Place Gardens. The photos show how early on it was partnered with a well known Aurelia B24, which is now wearing a ‘Vaticano’ badge suggesting it has received a higher blessing. Later in the morning there were other Italian marques trying to be seen in KPD’s company.

The journey there and back was memorable too – I am sure the startled looks we received from people on the streets and other motorists were simply in admiration.

So unkind of you to post this Colin - I'm missing her even more now!  ;D

Margaret used to love taking KPD on shopping trips to Waitrose where, because of her heart problem, she would get young shop assistants to wheel her trolley for her and load the bags into the car. The young lads were astonished when they set eyes on the Fulvia and in the main very complimentary of it and Margaret for driving it. 

Sorry you didn't make Goodwood - you were missed, especially as I had the door rubbers etc with me which were left behind when you and Simon collected her.

Not sure if this is correctly a 'Lancia cars seen on the road' post, but all the cars in these photos were definitely on the road today and seen touring through the hills and lanes of the Surrey Hills for Drive It day (thanks to Neil Sims for excellent organisation and route plan).

A good range of Lancias from '30s to 80's. My personal favourite (apart from my Flavia Vignale, obviously) was the pale grey Fulvia SII coupe; 30k miles and amazingly original with a lovely cloth interior and perfect factory body gaps and lines.

Usually when I go out for a 'nice drive in the country' I never see any cars that are interesting, let alone a Lancia.

However, Bank Holiday Monday was different ...... I had just left the Battlesbridge Antique Centre, navigating a roundabout when out popped an Appia ..... so, much to my my wife's amazement and amusement I kept going round the roundabout and followed it ........ back into the Antique Centre. The driver's name is Tony and the car is likely to be for sale in the not too distant future!!!

A late lunch at Writtle and on returning to the car there was an Integrale parked up a few spaces in front of Flavia!! No driver apparent.

Life is strange ...

I am just back from a week in Assisi including a day trip to Rome. Lancias were abit thin on the ground, almost all Ypsilons with a smattering of Musas but I did see a Lybra in Assisi and a couple of Thesis in Rome as well as the Deltas pictured below. I also saw a Chrysler 300 with an peculiar badge on the front.

I suspect in reality he came to a stop on the crossing due to the traffic in front and then the folk came along to cross over. Either way he should have not of course be at a standstill on the crossing, even in Central London.....

Oh yes, I noticed the failed rear light as I sprinted after the Fulvia and threw myself onto the nearby number 43 bus, just as the doors were closing. I was fumbling with my membership flyers as I encouraged the driver to take chase, which of course he did, weaving the bus in and out of the rush hour traffic up past the Nags Head junction and onwards, but sadly the Fulvia pulled away from us at Archway and the opportunity was lost. Rest assured it wasn’t a wasted effort and the bus driver took over my stock of LMC leaflets and promised to use them to good effect.

Well spotted Richard! That screen sticker refers to the Flavia and 2000 Consortium’s event in the Covent Garden Piazza in 2003 – an event that took place there because of 2000HF owner David Bieda’s influence with Covent Garden. It was the success of this event that gave David and his team of helpers the confidence to go ahead with the larger centenary event in 2007. How time flies!

Woke up over the weekend in one of those 'Who am I? Where am I? Why is the tv on? Why is it 2 o'clock in the morning?' moments and there on the screen was a lovely dark Flaminia Berline driving into a fuel station. The film was called 'Psyche 59' and it's on Talking Picures again tonight (30/7). The scene was in the UK, it was RHD and UK registered. I think the reg plate was visible a couple of times so be interested to know if it's still around. That's all I saw before I staggered off to bed but it's on earlier tonight so will try to catch it again.

Well, it was the principal male character's car registered 180 FXB which isn't a registration that is known to me. It was a right hand drive series 2 and from the registration a pre 1963 car. The interior light above the rear window is the give away in the first shot and there is quite a long sequence of shots involving the car. There is nice gear change action with the column change too.

Seen today at the Kop Hill Climb.
2 x Lambda open body, Mike Guest and Colin Wise.
An Aurelia B10, forgot who the owner is.
My Fulvia 2c Berlina (Fay). I also saw an integrale in Princes a Risborough, but not sure if he was at the event.
I'm surprised how few Lancia Members attend the weekend, it's with in easy reach of North London and good access from the M25.
If you apply and are accepted then on the day, whichever is allocated, you get two untimed runs on the hill, a public highway, which is closed for the weekend in aid of charities, but still subject road traffic regulations. At the briefing this is pointed out, and requested that if you have an on board camera, you don't show your speedo!
The cost is a very reasonable £45 that includes 1 passenger, Rally plaque and a run up the hill in the morning and the afternoon.
This year we were asked if we had spare seat or two, to donate them, the donor hands over a donation, puts their hand in a box and pull out a model car, this has a number on the bottom that relates to a specific car, and that's the one you get a run in, no swaps are allowed, I took a lady, her daughter age 11 and her son age 8, along with my two Dachshund, and a great time was had by all with the children in the back waving like crazy to all the onlookers, up the hill and on the way back through Princes Risborough to the paddock.
If you aren't picked, or you don't wish to run the hill, then you book and pay in advance, and park in the Display area.
The Brookland Napier Railton ran the hill, along with Austin seven, many old motorbikes, BMW electric Spyder, a chain gang Fraser Nash, a Steyr Puch 500, and many many more.
So please join us next year.
If we can get enough Lancia's we can have our own spot.
Finally at 6.05pm, a Black Chrysler Delta that had just come off the South Bound M1 at Junction 12,Toddington, that the BBC have after 50 years decided to call Flitwick, which is 2 miles, with another village in Between in the opposite direction to Toddington, that is only half a mile away.

On Thursday 13 September we were on a Great Rail trip to Italy. After emerging from a boring tour of the Ducal Palazzo in Mantova, Eileen suddenly said "Look, there's an Aprilia"
We left the group and found that cars were arriving for the GRAN PREMIO NUVOLARI. This annual 1000km tour was being held 14-16th and a full list of the 312 starters can be found on their website (very few British entries but lots of Lancias). Sadly we couldn't stay for the start on Friday.

Not on the road in the photos but Patrick did take me for a run ;D
Back in 1997 Have fond memories of following Mike and Denise Jennings in this very car down through Switzerland, chasing it up the Simplon pass, through into Italy to Lake Orta, then up to Fobello on a Randino with Frank Dehler.

Seen at the Lambda Winter Lunch today. This Lambda Saloon is an ex John Vessey car. Apparently it’s new owner has recently had the pleasure of driving it to Albania and back.

Later comments

In response to off-forum questions:

No, I don’t think the empty barrels stacked up at the side were for the fuel he used to get to Albania and back.

Yes, the shiny covers on the lower parts of the sliding pillar units are unusual.

No, I don’t know what the brass bell hanging in the centre of the track rod is for!

But isn’t it a lovely car with a good story?

Colin

whilst en route today A11/A14 Cambridgeshire/Suffolk border saw an Appia loaded on a car transporter, presumably just purchased not broken down, but who knows ? Ironically I was on my way to look at a Lancia for sale in North Norfolk !

Not sure yet. It was running fine as I approached J14 and then the water temp gauge went to the stop. It was in the roadworks and I had little choice but to coast/drive it to a gap in the steel fencing. Almost no coolant in it but no blown hoses/obvious leaks.. I was recovered off the motorway where the AA turned up about 10 isn and refilled it. Ran it back up to temperature and it chucked the lot out of the expansion cap when he loosened it. He'd checked the water for evidence of gasses but that was ok (phew) so the diagnosis is failed thermostat/weak radiator cap/iffy water pump or fan belt.
Relay truck arrived at 11.30, home at 1.30. Spent a few hours trying to track down a thermostat for an Alfa 164 12v without much luck until I found a German supplier of an insert for the housing. Rad cap was much easier. Now I have to remove the fan belt to measure it and get another one ordered. After that it'll be a case of run it up to temp again on the driveway and see what happens.
Should be an easy fix, just frustrated it happened today.
The drive down to Silverstone Historic on the hottest day of the year was scary as it ran hot all the way down but no ill effects from that, fine all weekend and fine on the way home too.
Sorry I missed the second Fulvia! Probably missed others too!
