Title: Looking Back at Christmas

Checking back I found this picture of Lin and I competing on the 2007 Rallye Monte Carlo Historique. The Fulvia is I believe still existing.

Yes Peter,
OPD 37E and CTA 762C, the only other surviving original UK RHD 2c's, apart from my FAY 224D, are both owned by Alan Murphy in the Irish Republic.
OPD is having a serious body Restoration and eventually maybe returned to her original spec.
CTA has been much modified away from her original spec, but this year after a lot of work Alan drove her to Italy for a Lancia event, then carried on to the Greek Islands and mainland, with the help of a car ferry or two!
Alan got strapped for time and left CTA in Athens, then flew back again and drove her home.
Quite amazing when these three are the only RHD UK 2c's I've known since I first saw Robin Layce's CTA, that had just been restored, and OPD in Michael Newberry's collection,  on the same day about 1996 when I went to a Michael Newberry Picnic.
In fact CTA was the 2c that got me interested in 2c's, and she was the first 2c I drove, when Robin kindly let me take the wheel.
