Fell in love with Marcus Harrisons' Gamma coupe at the weekend ( as did Margaret and Emma !), the electric blue interior has to be seen to be believed. Looked like something that Ed Straker (UFO) would have drove !

Strangely, when I was very small and a Ford garage opened in the local town (Saffron Walden - Essex Boy!) they had Ed Straker's car there and I got to sit in it ..... !

I have owned two Citroen CX, both did a high mileage without breaking down. The Pallas took Lin and I, non-stop except for fuel, to Monaco in sublime comfort. I slept most of the way. I have also owned a couple of Gamma Berlinas and although I admit they have great presence, as an ownership proposition they were a disaster. Perhaps I should now leave the room?

I don't mind you implying that Gammas aren't reliable as long as you voted for it in the poll! Smiley

So how does a Gamma Berlina compare with a Coupe?  Much to choose between different varients?

Not a great deal of difference to be honest, the Berlina may look big and heavy but
it has a similar top speed, similar handling and is more comfortable on a long drive
than the coupe, (except mine of course) it has a better drag coefficient than the coupe
it has four doors and a reasonably sized boot,.

When the fuel injection was added it made very little difference, slightly smoother at
idle, but apart from that on a long trip the injection uses marginally more fuel.

I prefer carburetors but that's probably because I am still

Eight of you have voted and revealed true colours. Luckily, the poll records the voter IDs, and I know where you all live... :-)
