They're beautiful cars. They look imposing enough to have been used for high-ranking government officials. Were they ever?
Well a quick google yeilded the fact that one was used by Bao Dia the last Emperor of Vietnam while in exile in France!

Bought by The Automobile magazine and they did a few articles and write ups on it, not sure if they still have it.

Just magnificent gentlemen, thank you for those uplifting photos, sorry to say I can't post up a pic of mine as it still needs some paint, etc etc!

Thank you Frank. We are just trying to motivate you over the line. You have done the easy bit (bet it didn't feel like it!) putting it together will take super human effort but you are more than up to the challenge. In bocca al lupo!!!

Tim I am plenty motivated, just my body/paint man isn't! I have boxes of spares etc, my mechanic on standby and the strength and tenacity of one of those comic super heroes, as of yet to no avail!

Which reminds me of a mate of mine who did Italian for 3 years at school and when at an Italian restaurant in London, thought he'd impress the waitress with a line or two, alas his memory and or pronunciation weren't up to scratch and instead of saying he was as hungry as a wolf, said he was as randy as wolf, we couldn't understand why she never took the rest of our order!!!!!
