Glad you got alternative transport sorted Andy ! I'm dying to give my car a decent run too but it will be a little while yet after this weekend. I always start worrying about 'obsolete' body panels when there is snow around!
 
I tax my car all year round and don't mind taking it out if there is salt around as long as I've got chance to pressure wash the underside
when I get home, the thing is the hose pipe has been frozen for weeks! Although it's not the same the car gets started every week and run up to temperature.

I've got to pluck up courage to change the thermostat on the Delta (it runs cool) but the garage is so b....y cold it will have to wait!!

But only if Mike Guest's Lambda was used.

Ahhhh John, it's a long chassis 8th so Mike's car will need a stretch!

Another Lambda.  This is a picture of a prototype on Mont Cenis in 1922, taken supposedly by Vincenzo.  Not much weather protection and that V8 Trikappa tender car would have been fun in those conditions without front wheel brakes

Oops, you're correct. I noticed the strips on the rear wing and Mike's is the only car I know like that, although he has a few more. Regards, John

Was sooooooo tempted to get the Fulvia out this morning for a play in the snow ... but I'd have to get two 'every day' cars (including my RWD one) off the drive first and that didn't happen.

Have some good pictures of my Fulvia in snow some years back in the Peak District so she's not just a fair weather car!

And if I wake up to snow on Sunday morning then other cars or not she's coming out of the garage!

Failing that I might try and pick up the following PS3 game ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfO8dDTsL7s

P.S. Thotos ... that picture is so cool. It actually looks like a model diorama although I know it's not!
