Back in 2003 when Robin and myself both owned Fulvia 2c Berlina's, I was in Robin's neck of the wood after dropping my Daughter and her Husband off at Gatwick airport, and as previously arranged I called in, I knew about 'Modestine' but this was my first encounter with this lovely Lancia, in retrospect I do wonder if at the time if Robin really knew what he'd let himself ( and Margaret) in for Shocked

I was astonished to see her size and the amount of work to do.
As many will know the body wasn't her original body, and that Robin had hunted far and wide to find a suitable body to cloth her in, but even then needed it needed a lot of work and alteration.
Fast forward to 3 years later in Turin and the 100th Anniversary of Lancia, and it was amazing to see how much they had achieved.
I spoke to Robin the other day who gave me permission to post these photos, these had been taken in 2003 on the understanding that they would stay secret, until Robin chose to show her to everyone.
Ploughing through many Lancia photos the other day I came across them, and this is the first time they have ever been shown to anyone other than Robin and Margaret.

Many thanks for the memories Brian, I went down to the workshop today just to remind myself of where we are now.
Was it all worth it? Certainly was!
