I agree with sentiments raised earlier in this thread. It would be really good to know more about the Lancias you have had over the years and your experiences with them. The cars that we now think of as rare and specialist, yet it seems that you happily used them as everyday vehicles before they became too rare. Probably like most reading this thread, I'm very envious!

Any chance you would have the time to put fingers to keyboard for a VL article (or series) or even a specific thread with pics on here that we can then move to VL too?

I'll keep fingers crossed.

Best wishes

Bought my Aprilia in Sept 64. She is now on her third engine and wearing her third coat of paint and seriously in need of a fourth on both counts but is nevertheless out in the shed ready to go if needed.

KYH 15P as posted in the fulvia section by FAY 66[thanks Brian]was my first lancia back in 1988-300 pounds from a friend and in need of work to say the least!anyhow found a donor car for 100 quid which turned out to be better than KYH-lancia blue/pro-rebuilt engine[the best i have had]excellent subframe etc[both cars found very locally]so put the donor parts in,put the surplus parts to one side+found out through experience how the car was put together during the reassembly,plus added plastic bonnet +boot lid+ally doors /tank /neg front suspension /sparco replica HF-stratos seats [i wish i still had those works of art]etc with the help of day and shindler at druid st SE1[many thanks to John Day] and drove to LMC goodwood trackday for another experience.a few laps with john day in his racer and a few with richard thorne in his quattro and lancia 037![5 quid in the charity box per session]showed me the way round a lot faster than i realised cars could travel!after that i added perspex windows and the campagnolos at 50 pounds each-[nice wheels!]+lowered the springs/fitted konis+plastic arches.the photo featured was taken at valence hillclimb which formed part of the local sprint and hillclimb championship.i had one class win trophy at lydden circuit in the following period which i still treasure-the same venue where that car was written off 3 years later!thats another regards richard
