    There's a man in Glen Iris, Melbourne who drives one of those quite often round the suburbs. I used to see him picking up the papers and milk etc in the mornings. Not quite as luxuriously finished as this one, 'Racing Trim' he said as he used to do hill climbs in it. He had a stable of cars out the back under restoration.

    I knew a few such characters as a boy, blokes that rumbled off on weekend jaunts in their Sunbeams or Bugattis and I often went along . i guess that's why I love these machines. Simplicity and elegance, not great speed by modern standards but lots of fun!

    They're fantastic looking things. They look like they've been treated with rustkill... genolite or something , and left.
    Personally I'd draw the line at no front brakes though.
    Even Model A's are bit marginal these days but I still have a hankering for one of those. again. Something like a period flathead V8 transplant would do ,without going to a full rod status.. maybe 16 in v8 spokes...

    Railton Special? No not the special but……….. look down and see the car, in the air on the Brooklands track.

    Thanks, skuthorp.

    Napier Lion..........that second exhaust exiting almost underneath the car does draw the eye.

    Do you mean this one?
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    Yes Stilleto.
    I think the wood bodied Hispano Suiza also had an engine based on a WW1 aero engine.

    From Peter's post....



    Looks to be the same as this one that I saw in Chiang Mai. Bit of work needed yet though...

    What do you mean nowhere near the same? 4 wheels, steering wheel, no roof. Looks about the same to me.

    Sort of. It was a show car / design study built by the Holden design engineers in 2006 - conceived as a 50 year homage to the original FJ which was built '53 - '56

    Bit of thread drift then......bit of yabbering and the Efijy being driven around Williamstown by an Top Gear Australia presenter.
