Just had another look at the photo and noticed the beautiful curve of the top of the bumper following the body shape. They just didn't know when to stop.

"FanTASQUE" - very good !

We are off on a LCF (Lancia Club France) rally this weekend, bit last minute but should be fun. Mike and Denise Jennings are back from Oz so will be there in their Fulvia Sport as well

Fun trip out this weekend, nice start to the running in. The "sortie" was centred around Pic St Loup famous for its wines, beautiful countyside and tooth-shaped peak

We had 15 or so cars including a 2nd ser B20, Flaminia 2.8 3C touring a good number of Fulvias, 2 MonteCarlos and a Thema station wagon, Delta HPE plus the furgoncino

A lovely couple of days and the weather behaved !

Photo of Mike and Denise in St Martin de Londres

I did about 500 kms and the only issues I had were a slightly blocked intermediate jet and a petrol leak from the banjo bolt on the front of the carb. Too early to test petrol consumption, but she used 1/2 pint of oil (new engine) and a tiny drop of water.

She drives beautifully but is very slow ! 90kph effective top speed ......

It was strange jumping back into the 3rd series today, she only has the 4 speed box and it is completely backwards t the 5 speed in the furgoncino - 1st on the van is 3rd on the 3rd series and reverse is 2nd on the van !

What a special event for an early run.  Love the group photo with your front on from above.  As for being slow its just a case of planning the route and stops...

Yes, 90kph is fine. Makes it a nice little Route Nationale cruiser. Far too much rushing about these days (I say, after blasting my Fulvia along my favourite sinuous roads on Sunday).  As David said, what a superb first official event. Very impressive line up of cars under the trees. Did you get any wine customers?

Petrol leak sorted by the side of the road before it got out of hand !

Little job today whilst Dog was on the Cabrio - fettling a new brake reservoir. Irritatingly, I bought a "rebuilt" unit that has always had a slow leak and lets the plunger drop over time.

I found a nice original label in Italy , so used it as a prompt to get a properly sealed and working reservoir.

New seals are available, so I honed the inner sleeve, cleaned and painted all the bits and put it back together. The labels are held on by 4 tags that slot through holes on the unit, however these more often than not get broken, so I have glued it in place with a couple of dabs of sikaflex and held it in place with cable ties until it is dry

Let's hope this one doesn't allow the plunger to drop

I love the fact that the label is so well made it has a part number. Not just a sticker fading and curling up with heat.

I wonder whether the formula for the olio vegetale can be retrieved, as imo it was very good.  In the B21 I bought from Ron it was still there, and those parts were simply in very good condition, the pistons only needing new seals, but not pitted as usual...

Olive oil?

Does anyone use vegetable oil now ? What was the name of that racing oil used by Bugattis - Castrol R ?? - was that vegetable based , smelt like it !

Another step forward today, French reg document arrived with my new registration - EM-268-NX, so I think she is going to be "Emma", interesting that she has the numbers "268" on both UK and French plates !

Castrol R is castor oil based and still available. According to the great wiki; Castor oil is a vegetable oil obtained by pressing the seeds of the castor oil plant (Ricinus communis).

I am pretty sure it is still in common use in vintage racing circles.

For a year or two I used Castrol R in my 1929 Alfa.  The people to benefit were those following me who could really enjoy the scent.  As the driver you did not have that reward as you were too far ahead of the exhaust.

If you decide to try it most important is to clean out any old oil completely and never mix R with mineral oil.  When I eventually went back to mineral it took a long time to clean everything thoroughly as it left a thin film on crankcase almost like varnish, as well as the internals.
