Win-Win for sure. Love it when a plan comes together.
Well done!

Ive not been around for a while, but this is a cracking looking car!

I dont suppose youre planning on taking her up to tje end of year "classic car and restotation show" at the Bath and West this weekend? If so it would be good to see her in the flesh. And perhaps grab a photo next to its cousin (the Miglia)

Thank you D. I am so pleased with it ....

And yes , Alex will be at the Bath and West Show today ...I was hoping to get down there to meet him and see the car again too ...but Eric my customer for the Long nose is coming in to see me this morning and I can't re-schedule it as he's on a fairly tight timetable ...

Please do take some pictures . It would be really useful to see the size differences of the 2 cars next to each other .....

Really good time today at the Classic restoration show at Shepton Mallet, got rather wet on the way down and stuck behind a tractor and trailer full of hay bails and got covered in straw so not the best start to the day. Loads of interest in the car and have been asked to go back tomorrow for a couple of photo shoots for 2 magazines so well chuffed and had to give it a good clean when I got home so fingers crossed for better weather tomorrow.
Certainly a diverse range of cars on show and great to see them all

Oh ok ..Adam ..yes , glad he got hold of you ..saves them a bit of messing about doing the pics at the show ...he was talking about getting the feature out for the Christmas copy ... The Specialist Triumph magazine ..is that the guy who does a Triumph Specials and kit car newsletter ? He asked me for some info a few weeks back ...

Really pleased its creating interest ...

Graham , take some pictures of them taking pictures if you can please ? I'd love some of those for the Facebook page ...

Another great day at Shepton Mallet today. Met up with Dave in his Miglia and parked next to each other so a good photo opportunity and also I was lucky enough to have a photo shoot done by Complete Kit Car for their December magazine issue

Alex - Your car looks great.



And no traces of the hay you picked up yesterday.

I've also rotated the photos of your car and Dave's Miglia.

Great pictures ...Thank you ...Top picture really shows the pout well , one of my favourite features of the car ...headlight covers in place too , which they aren't in many pictures ...

The 2 of the 'half-brothers' together shows the extra width and length well ..width is about 4'' and puts the wheels inside the arches , more Jag like , rather than the Miglia's wider track look ....The rounder rump and pouted front add a few inches to the overall length too ...not saying either is right or wrong - just two different ways of building the cars ...

It's ROSSA BARCHETTA ..The same colour that Jeff at Hilltop painted his 250 SWB ...I think I'd be right in saying its a standard colour for those cars ...it looks all diferent shades on here , but is a stunning colour in the flesh ...

Thanks LL, seems Jeff's build photos disappeared. Didn't he do a rear window mod?
