Thanks Chris! Back in UK now with full load of wine, beer etc. The 2c did heroically well! Thanks to Tim's engine rebuild the car ran faultlessly, smoothly and economically.
Justin,
2c looks  brilliant and pleased she went so well, hope Sara and yourself had a nice break.

Finally got my car out of hibernation, with the virus situation and nowhere much to go I didn't see the point in taxing it.
Then I figured I ought to at least use it...

Given the fine weather we're having I don't think I'd be able to resist the temptation to use it to go to work.

I am deep into researching the Lancia based World War 1 armoured car. In the process I visited the web site of the Henriques Museum in Trieste because they have the only complete original example that is known to exist. I also found this intriguing picture of a large aircraft being transported in bits to the museum with a familiar face in the middle of the line up of cars in the foreground.

I'm usually pretty good with aircraft recognition but this one has me stumped. First thought was a Handley Page Halifax but I don't think the curvature of the top is right...
Anyone else have any thoughts?

The museum web site didn't give much detail. They found a set of photos in their archive from the 1950s but I have a feeling the aircraft didn't remain in the museum collection so up to date details aren't available. I presume it was Italian and the only description was "Tri-motor". It has taken a bit of finding but I think it's a VAR.SM.82 heavy bomber / transport plane.

Savoia  Marchetti 79 not sure, many of these were used in the bombing of Malta and the middle east.
