There was a PF that used to go well at Goodwood, albeit with alarming body roll.  Who's was that car...  Simon Duval?

David, Yes, that would have been the Farina Coupe owned and driven with gusto if not abandon by Simon Duval Smith. That car was a right hand drive ex-South Africa car. I think the only photo I have of it is attached – this was at one of the Ally Pally Sunday morning gatherings in 1998 that flourished for a while. Jai Sharma is seen talking with Martin Buckley.

The seats and interior of that car were in a lovely soft tan leather, reference to which promoted Ron Barker to say that it “had been trimmed with apartheid”! A few years later Simon had great difficulty in finding a buyer for the car and it was eventually sold to someone in Scotland for about £4000.

It went well and looked fantastic inside, outside, and in every detail.

The Flaminia Berlina is reputed to have achieved the fastest recorded time over the pave' (can't put am accent on the "e") at Mira so ride is supposed to be exemplary.

Re the button on the seat back I thought the knob on the ash tray was to obvious to require distinguishing from the push button.

The A pillars are vertical and the wrap around on the windscreen is a full 90 degrees.

And one I saw at Richard Thorne's some years ago but I wasn't tempted.

Thank goodness for that! Its a lovely car. I was going to have another look at it next week when I am back in the UK for a few days as the 'itch' wouldn't quite go away. Is it staying in the UK I wonder (& hope).
