The first article is written by Anthony Smallhorn, well known in Lancia circles, although little has been heard from him for a while (I do know he is "alive and kicking" in Huntingdon and in fine form !!)

He wrote this article in 1975 where he described the Aprilia "which was the first really modern light car". This was years before he ever owned one ! He bought YRV 700 from us in about 1980 something. I suppose he must have had the 6th series B20 (7 PMG) at the time

Interesting articles and quite prophetic !

Google Books seem to be protected, but perhaps there is a way around it? http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=210518
