The other theory for that era is that fashion has moved on while nostalgia has yet to catch up.  Would anyone else admit to looking more favourably on cars of the 1970s than they did a decade ago?

My father thanks "duelitremezzo" for his kind comments and returns his best wishes. He and his friend David remember the occasion well.

He notes that the sill trim line on the Aurelia is, of course, on the wheel centres.

Have a great christmas!

Have you got any photos of the two cars in Colmar?

Not on Colmar, but somewhere near Gross Glockner; my fathers car in the foreground and David's in the background.

Yes, I'm guilty of it! In fact, there's a strange phenomenon when a car can almost become a classic overnight. They suddenly look out of place with the modern cars around them. One that springs to mind for me is the XJ-S. Couldn't stand them when they first appeared, partly because it wasn't a progression of an E-type and to me a disappointment. I never see any here in France, but now when I see them on tv programmes or in ads I think they look great, a real luxury cruiser. I now rate their looks alongside any of the classic front engined GT's.

Isn't that always the way, the prophet whose never appreciated at home.

Is the XJS with its big engine old enough to benefit from a lower taxation rate?

Love the twins pic.........Leonardo who?

Does the Aurelia nearest the camera have tinted glass or is it a trick of the light?

4th series B20s. Not sure about the sedans, maybe the B12?

I understood that it was a definitive feature of the S4 B20, but I do not have my Aurelia book to hand to check.

It worries me about the ease of finding a replacement should any get broken, especially at the moment as all the glass is out of the car!!! Does anyone know if any have been remanufactured?

It is all described in "La Lancia" by WO Weerninck

For the Aurelia:
- Only B20 4th series had tinted glass - it was not an option
- And concurrently all 2nd series berlinas, i.e. B12

I do not think that tinted glass was ever offered as an option on other series.

John Turner used stick on film to replicate the tint for his Lambda Weyman.

Well, I'm amazed by this. I would have said tinted glass didn't exist in cars until the 60's. Certainly looks good. Trust Lancia. I wonder which year Ferrari, Maserati etc offered it?

Indeed, can confirm, green tint on the B12's windows, awaiting reinstallation later on in the year!
