Run it after a quick blow over to stop the paint getting any worse, old cars are like old cameras they like to be used. I have just bought a 1960's Mamiya Press camera that has been in it's box for 40 years not a mark on it but the shutter and the aperature ring were gummed up solid. How many of the hundreds of classic cars that look A OK are actually in poor mechanical condition due to lack of use.

Aurelia photos are on film - and scanning is a "rainy day" job I'm unlikely to get to soon.  I've got some scans on the upstairs computer.  I'll have a look next time and see if there's "a history".

Here's a shot from I think 1998.

I then spent a lot of money on it, didn't get to compete with it again, and finally sold it on to Jason and Louise Kennedy.

Looking forward to seeing (no doubt rapid) progress here.

Numberplate question. There's a B20 with the numberplate TXT25 - which seems a bit of a co-incidence. Can someone here enlighten us, what's the TXT story?

I know my appia was imported from Italy , when I have no idea but the previous owner informed me it was imported then he bought it, I know he ran it in the 70's/80's so I can only presume they were plates given by dvla, the import story tallies 100% as its Italian plates are in the boot, as is an I sticker , the car has repeater lamps fitted to the front wings, clear rear indicator lenses and speedo in kmh , maybe someone Imported both  Huh?

Those yellow plates really show up on the speed camera photos - it would make it harder to blame all the other rat look SII Appia boy racers in the area.

I have owned an Appia since 1970. The problem with Appia there is very little paint on the inside of the wings or any real weather protection - just four big mud traps.

When I finally stripped my car down and removed what was left of the wings, I took a wheel barrow of soil out of the area where the body meets the wings. There are rubber seals to keep the mud out but they had long gone. Even now with my restored car with properly painted wings and many tins of underseal it’s a pain to keep the mud traps clear.

If the car you have is the one I told the consortium about, James, I am disappointed - as you say it was ten years ago, and perhaps somebody else could have restored it by now.

I fear that if you  use the car now as it is, you will be faced with an even larger rebuild than if you restored it now. It's O.K. for Simon  to drive an Appia in the South of France all year round but in Britain, with damp weather and salt surely it does not make sense.  

I know - I made that mistake!

I bet that if it were an Aurelia you would not even think of using it. The problem is that people still think of Appias as cheap cars, but they only made just over 3,000 right hand drive 2nd series Appias. The build quality of the body of my Appia is much  better than my Aurelia. Some people describe the Appia as a miniature Rolls Royce.
They’re not cheap any more - see http://annunci.ebay.it/annunci/auto/napoli-annunci-capodimonte-palazzo-reale/lancia-appia-seconda-serie/61654207

So, James - are you destroying our heritage? If not you are getting perilously close...
