Speed is of the essence with this tho' Chris as I hear Harriet Harman is attempting to ban airbrushing touch ups of male models in photos. And Chugga, thin models are so last season so you'll have to kick the diet I'm afraid. I'm back up to pie and chips twice a week to maintain my figure should I ever receive the call - we owe it to Chris to be prepared  Grin

At the end of the article LMC gets the first thanks - so I guess someone from here must have helped

Just read my copy that I bought today, Thanks go to the LMC, CLS, Montecarlo consortium,John Savage, Martin Cliffe & John Whalley, so a pretty rounded effort.

I'm just amazed that they managed to leave Fulvia out of the article, come on! how can you leave Fulvia out of an article Dedicated to Sharper Style, Clever Engineering, and Dynamic Flair Huh?

Why would LMC be consulted? We keep a very low profile and if VL is not missing something, we have no PR person. Sitting smugly back expecting to be the first port of call for all things Lancia is a delusion of grandeur. First rule of publicity is let people know on a regular basis who you are and what you do. Until the LMC gets out there and struts it's stuff no one will know or care and rivals will 'steal the march' every time.


We do now Robin.  As of Sunday last, it's me.  Expect action!

Interesting that my post should bring the appointment to the notice of the membership!

Good on you Chris for taking on the challenge - action is what is needed.

the photography is very nice;  article is mayby a little lacking in substance but it's a pleasant surprise to get such a broad overview in the mainstream press. And Brian was right, its amazing they didn't include the fulvia but strangely I didn't notice till he mentioned it.Usually its the only lancia these magazines seem to recognise but now they've even discovered the Aprilia....

What's going on? Why are Lancia suddenly getting so much gear etc.It seems suspicious to me; are Fiat about to try and sell it off and this is all pre marketing for the brand.....

Classic cars is a Peterborough based concern. The Cliff's are in Norfolk. Almost all the articles I have seen, both in this and the Teddington Middlesex based, Haymarket owned, Classic & sports car, have used cars supplied by Omicron. If your in the media, as I was, you use those you know, and who will deliver the goods, on time, with the minimum of fuss. Once you get a good name for this, then you will be called upon first. The HF used in September's issue was one of Martin's as well.
So there you go guys, less online arguing amongst ourselves, more getting out there and raising our profile. Like membership, 'Build it and they will come' !
