Don't forget that I can search the database for any particular model (including year and location) belonging to a member and they can then be approached to see if they want to take part.  The earliest Deltas on the database are 1 1980,  1  1981 and 2 1982.  The usual problem with magazines asking for particular models of cars is that it is very last minute and there is very little time available to organise anything.

Diana, I imagine that will be useful, though I imagine in the first instance a call for volunteers and suggestions in VL might be useful - I imagine it should best come from Auto Italia / John Simister, but I'm happy to pick up and organise on John's behalf if that would be helpful.  I'm pleased to know we still have some really early Deltas knocking about - I would love to see one (in fact if I had space I'd love to own one...).  If the 1980 one is in good nick that might make a good story - the oldest Delta left in the country.

Don't forget that there is an S4 (road regsitered) in the UK, belonging to a CLS member I believe.

Just been looking through the Nigel Trow Delta book and there are some fantastic images of the Delta prototype (briefly called Epsilon).  Can we access and include these?

I also think it'd be important to include a Prisma and the Series 2 Deltas.

I suppose it depends on the lines we draw - I'd suggest that the 30th anniversary is the S1 Delta - so I'd guess the S2 is for another time.  Is the Prisma a different car, or close enough to the S1 to merit inclusion - and would it be worthy of a separate article anyway?  As for the S4, I think that would probably be stretching the family tree beyond even the Integrale...!  Moreover, I imagine AI would almost certainly consider the S4 to be worthy of its own feature.  It sounds like there is a family of articles here...

It's fair to say that the Delta name introduced a line of Lancia cars that included the S2 Delta, Prisma, S4 Rally and Stradale, HF 4WD and integrale.

So it depends upon the objective of the article, a retrospective on the impact of the Delta upon the fortunes of Lancia would perhaps include all of these cars, whereas a look back on the anniversary car would be well served by a specific article about first-year events and the splash in the press, contemporary verdicts (CoTY 1980) on a nice original S1 Delta.

Perhaps it could even be interestng to take a wider look at the JV with Saab (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saab_600):

Problem being if you start introducing integrale & the exotics in the story, the less collectable and not so well variants will get pushed into the background, to my mind I'd prefer to see a write that only covers up to the non 4WD, but of course including Prisma.

I think the Clubs write up of the S4 produced a couple of years or so, ago, covers S4 in sufficient detail.

I think I'd agree with Brian - there is lots of stuff written about the Rally winning legends but nothing that I have seen (in 4 years of ownership) about where the story started from ... a comparison would be nice (seeing Chris's car and mine on the Giro together WAS amazing) but the the story should be about the Delta at 30 ... (the integrale will be celebrated in a few years time @30 I'm sure!) ...

Food for thought here. Thanks to you all. The S4 is a separate being as far as this story is concerned, and the Prisma is a footnote derivative. I'd like to include an S2, though, as the car we in the UK never got. Brian, have no fear that an Integrale or HF 4WD would overshadow calmer Deltas.

I was pleased that Chris Rees gave the win in his group test to the Fulvia, although mine has just the one front leaf spring... Slightly puzzled by his comments on gearing, too. I reckon the tacho was over-reading.

I don't know whether as a result of this discussion, or independently, but I've now had a request from the editor of Auto Italia to contribute a 'Readers Car' piece.  Hopefully in writing that i won't mess up the plans on here for the anniversary feature.  I guess the anniversary feature will include driving impressions and a photo shoot which will be very different to what I can put in the 'readers car' feature, so I imagine we're OK.

Evening all..

Looking for a Delta 1500 ??  Well, the one from Edinburgh has now joined the Beta and Gamma collection in Tiddleywink, so would be great to get it featured and out there in AI. Drove it down from Edinburgh to Wiltshire on Wednesday with no problems. Although it is a March 82 registered vehicle, I am pretty dammed certain, looking at the spec that it is a 1980 built vehicle. Certainly all the little details of the spec are spot on for a launch car.( solid metal exterior door handles, carpeted tailgate trim panel, full carpeting under the rear seats, fully carpeted rear parcel shelf supports, carpet / fabric rear parcel shelf)  Not perfect condition, but pretty good all round. So, after 8 years of looking for a 1500, I can say that i am chuffed to have found a decent working one!

Andy ! BIG congrats ... that means (cos it's taxed) you'll be able to trundle over to Tormarton (26th) so we can all have a look. Have you named it yet ?

Just received the latest copy (issue 148).  Not much Lancia content this month.  The Landmark Engine is the Aurelia V6.  There is more information on the Prisma integrale (last months obscure Italian car) featured as the Readers Car.
