Le Français

Toujours, je suis désolé pour mes amis( et amies) français(es), mais il est difficile pour moi d'écire en français. Peut-être un jour...

Something a Little Special

Although I may not be 100% correct, I like to think that Lancia owners especially have a strong sense of and interest in, the marque's traditions, whether they be the founder's racing career, the excellent history of invention and innovation, the superb engineering, the competition successes and so on.

Certainly this applies to me. Here I show two pictures

The first picture (photo David Beard) shows the lovely F1 Lancia D50. This is one of the staggeringly correct replicas that have been constructed using original engines and transmissions. The project was largely achieved by the efforts of Anthony Maclean who also owns one of the cars (and a superb D24 spyder too).The photograph was taken at the Goodwood Revival in 2003. This particular car is driven these days by Jochen Mass and by all accounts has become very competitive.

The second picture shows the radiator of a very special V8 Lambda, complete with pre-war Royal Italian Auto Club badge. This car took part in the Mille Miglia in 1932. I will add a little more about this in the future. (Photo by me).

Music and Radio Blog Club

Radio Blog Club, a good friend for a while appears to be in some legislative difficulty...

However, in tribute to its brave effort, I shall leave the existing track on this page (which amazingly still works)

Sadly my Playlist no longer works (hence its removal) thanks to the absurd "Hadopi" legislation in France. Apologies to all.
