Just arrived in time for Christmas my new Augusta. I never previously owned a Lancia and thought it time to put this right. So here it is freshly delivered from Italy. Now to contact the DVLA for a number.

That Augusta is rather special. Is there a story behind it, or did you just decide to jump off in the deep end ?

Yes - I'm very pleased with the car. I described how and why I bought it on the "Introductions" section of the private members area of the forum on Dec 1st. Four months of following up adverts on the Subito and other Italian web sites and getting information from vendors gave me a selection of cars which I thought worth  looking at and my son kindly went out in November to inspect and try three of them. He only managed to see two and this one seemed the better car for me as it had been owned by an enthusiast since 1981 and seemed a decent car, not just tarted up for sale. I bought it without actually seeing it myself so its arrival just before Christmas was just a bit exciting! Our assessment of it turned out to be pretty good from what I have seen so far, although I'll have to wait for it to be registered (and the salt goes from the roads) before I can really try it.

There is a Youtube video of the car from 2014 which shows it nicely, but turn the volume down at the start!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4QqDtb-SHQ

Quite by chance I found a picture if the car with favourable comments by Doug Blain, in "The Automobile" December issue which, by complete fluke, also includes a 1970's picture of my other car, a 1925 French Salmson owned by me since 1984, in a piece about Andy Nahum who owned it at the time. Both are together in my garage - just a pity the Augusta does not speak French.
