Six liters of V12 yumminess, Abarth T140 recreation!
Any of our members here own or have owned an Aston Martin V8 Vantage, first edition 4.3l Manual? Would love to chat a bit about that car as I‘m planning on selling my beloved MGA in 2020 and am currently looking at more „modern“ replacement options. Feel free to shoot me a PM!

I am surprised that I haven't seen any Lancia's posted yet
I'm sure I've posted some here before, but here's something for you from Brooklands last Spring:
You get the like for posting a Fulvia rather than another Stratos or Delta. (Not that those aren't lovely to see, but the Fulvia deserves more love)
Some more luscious Lancias seen last year:
Those Lancias are sweeet!
My personal favorite:
Thanks Davy26 !!!! Sorry I did not see the Fulvia HF. wow what an army !! the HF was always my favorite. I used to own a regular Fulvia coupe , four speeds, and I felt I was out in space when I was driving it. I had an Alfa GT 1300 too, but the Lancia Fulvia definitely was different inside, more space , more visibility, and probably more elegant.
Some pics I took at the Arizona auctions in January. The green '37 BMW 328 and 356 barn finds were particularly cool.
Quite a long time ago I owned a Jaguar e-type series 2 2+2, and a Maserati Merak 3L, and a Merc 190 2.3. Sold each of them for less than £10k. Darn it.
The Jaguar accelerated nicely, but didn't like slowing down. The Maserati just wanted to kill me. The Merc was a superb machine until its timing chain broke...
This is my 356C, 1965, one repaint in '86, 121,000m. I sold her in August when I thought the market had peaked. While I miss her I think I timed it well. Missing an air-cooled Porsche, I immediately bought the '80SC Targa. I love it, but not like the 356C:
Very nice. The 356 is an aspirational one for me. Big Targa fan as well.
Thanks. The 356C was almost perfect, if any 55-yr old car can be considered perfect outside the Pebble Beach concours lawn. I sold a 356B to buy this one. The disc brakes turned the C into a modern car, whereas the B's drums made it an old, slow, lady. The Targa is by no means a disappointment; it's the second Targa I've owned and I love them if you can only have one Porsche (first world, I know.) An open 911, at a discount from its coupe cousins, and far more satisfying than a Cab.
Took the MG-A out for the first spin of the season yesterday. Runs like a charm, even without charging the battery over the last five months of storage. Just checked fluids and tire pressure and she was ready to go. I had thoughts about selling the car over the last months to get something more modern .... not anymore.
Have my sights set on a 356C for that very reason. Only P-car I've ever owned and currently own is a 981CS. Love the mid engine and now unsure if I want to try the flagship. Though a 991 Touring would be amazing. First world indeed.
