LOLHa, that's the first time anyone has "called me" on the HFE thing, and I've been using it for years. This is a car I built from a 1.2 coupe shell to be a street legal vintage racer that's as close to an HF as I could make it (I had a real HF that I bought new, many years back, and I remember all the little details). Since I can't with clear conscience call it an HF, I call it an HFE...as in Ersatz!
James-Excellent, thanks for the details. I don't know if I'm going to be able to make it though, as I'm having a bit of surgery on Friday, and if I'm up and about I might stop by the local AutoX. If I can't make it to the Rally, I'd love to take you up on the offer to stop by at some point and visit. The wine store and the Lancia would both be great!
And don't make apologies for the Peugeot, that's a beautiful car. I almost picked one up a year or two ago... but I chickened out.
Hope you're feeling better. Here's a pic of the Flaminia on the grounds of Radnor Hunt before taking off. The car ran beautifully.
I'll also have it at the Italian Car Show in Head House Square in Philadelphia on June 10. Look forward to meeting you one of these days.
WELL Yes it is the best Appia 3rd series, I have always like those cars, my good friend Cory has one I have seen how well enginer the little car is also here is agood friend that has alot parts for this car his name is mike 1-717-292-2962 he has everething you need to make the car run well, congrats adanAbout the time this thread was started, I made a commitment to purchase a friend's Series 3 Appia that was in storage. I finally got to see the car and trailer it home last week. This is my first Lancia and my first berlina. This is a really cool little car! The design and detailing are a delight. I am still waiting on the engine. It is in pieces and will need a rebuild and/or I may be looking for another. From what I've read, the engine looks to be a curious bit of engineering as well.
The car is from South Africa, hence the right hand drive and the best part: No rust!
[/QUOTE]Here's my Fulvia. Hope I'm not the only Lancia this year!
