And then there's this yoke.
I bring this out quite a lot, but it rarely draws any interest.
It's by far the best original car I've ever owned. Complete rebuild of all suspension components, so it drives like a new car. Great brakes, excellent handling, everything working perfectly. Interior re stuffed with original vinyl on all surfaces. Never welded.

Every week I get one of them out. Once the roads are reasonably dry, I find an excuse.
I took a day off late last summer. Washed all 3, then air-dried them by doing 100 miles in each of them. Most enjoyable selfish day of my year. All 3 taxed and insured. Proper modern tyres on them, and running lovely.
The Appia is a 58. Column shift with sliding pillar suspension and drum brakes.
The Berlina is a 68. Disc brakes, better suspension and so much more refined after just 10 years. The Coupe is a 76, another 8 years saw 4 pot calipers and a 5 speed box.
It's funny driving them chronologically. The advances over 20 years are remarkable.
