Very nice - Jeremy Phillips certainly knows how to design a car!

Looking good for 9 years under a cover! A nice alternative to all the Lotus 7 lookalikes. Enjoy while the sun shines.

That is a very nice looking car.

Looks more roomy than a seven style. Is it though ?

Asking for a fat friend ...

Yes, unencumbered by the scoops and bulges required for bike engines which came later.
The Phoenix, which is a Fury without doors is based on the chassis of the Striker which is his Seven-style car. Lets just say that I tried one of those before I settled on a Fury. The passenger seat was comfortable but the driver side was narrower.

Needed tyres, battery, starter solenoid, column switches, fan belt, all fluids, water pump, heater matrix, exhaust manifold gaskets, rocker cover gasket and carbs overhaul. Waxoyl and Hammerite too.
To be enjoyed anytime- no hood but it has a tonneau cover.

I went to the Old Ford Rally at the British Heritage Motor Museum at Gaydon yesterday.

This year I was very impressed by the site itself- no more parking on gravel, lots of tarmac parking areas nicely landscaped and marked out. There are 24hour toilets and showers for the over-nighters as well. The camping area is still on a windy ridge but it has a good view of the show. I gift-aided my entry fee so have free entrance to the museum for a year.
I had a quick look around the ground floor of the Jaguar museum building but the only other person there was a lady polishing the fingermarks off of some of the cars. The upstairs area is still rammed having seen it through the windows whilst driving past to the new car park. A shame as there are some interesting cars up there but too close together. The Sunbeam Alpine Club also had a gathering in one of the car parks- they got 78 cars there...
I saw this on one of them- it had a set of stainless wires with "reverse ear" spinners. Never seen ones like that before.

For all you twitterati out there
 
If you use twitter, that's one of those new-fangled interweb thingies; check out "Belles Italiennes". They tweet some great pics of classic Italian cars.
