There's a fair bit in the book about power boat seats.  Its not quite the same as the 007 boat in From Russia With Love.

That is Tim Burrett's B22, the same numberplate anyway. I wonder if he knows?

Fun stuff. Family had one of these back in the 1960s. Lancia and Moulton - what a cocktail!

I often see an orange space-frame Moulton bike locally, a treat every time.  A friend has a couple of early ones.  The VERY early ones were riveted not welded.  Am enjoying the book, he's just started at Bristol engines to gain some experience prior to joining the RAF as an engineer but has done such a good job he's now in a reserved occupation as a designer.  I'll be looking at the full Rolls Royce Heritage Trust book list.

Bill Boddy in Motor Sport, March 1961.

"This exhilarating run in February sunshine in the Ferrari got us talking cars(!) and we discovered that Moulton has been staunch to Lancia since owning an Aprilia. He has done some quarter-million Lancia miles, having replaced the Aprilia with a B12 Aurelia and this with a B20 Aurelia, and he still considers the Aprilia to be one of the World's finest cars technically and the last-series Aurelia G.T. the most beautiful car ever made. But the Flaminia does not appeal so much and consequently Alex Moulton will, in future, travel by Ferrari."
