Hating to sound pedantic - but wasn't it the Love Bug and the Lancia was actually an American spec Scorpion???  I could be wrong.......

Hi Robin, compliments of the season to you and Margaret. Well done, how about the next question?


Title: Re: Christmas Quiz
Post by: Dilambdaman on 27 December, 2007, 12:54:51 PM
Thanks Peter, seasons greetings to you and Lin.

And the question is:

Who held the Lancia agency in Mid-Sussex in the 70s/80s and who was the Managing Director?

Robin.

Sounds good, although I think Langley Motors may have taken on the BMW agency by then. Your turn

My latest Lancia acquisition was sold new in November 1967 by Langley Motors, Portsmouth Road, Thames Ditton  so they were still Lancia dealers then. However I think they had also become BMW dealers as well by then and continue as such to this day.
