    It really is great to read these stories. They really are super cars compared to the modern fleet around them.

    Good on you rich and mechanically talented folk for keeping them going and not dumping funds and energy into Toranas and Mustangs! Gord knows there are enough of them about

    "nauli",

    And I have proof of this, sorry to put your "mug shot" on the site, but I took the picture to show that this man is able to comfortably fit into his A110, be it that his seat is mounted directly to the floor and canted back a bit. He has a bit of trouble sitting in Sam's A110, so I put an original seat in mounted on the floor.

    Life has all sorts of opportunities, and is fun !!!!

    Sam's A110 has been out quite a bit and visits the workshop quite often. He has been to a number of "gatherings", but this last weekend we had the Rotary Charity display at the Wesley school in South Perth, and Sam and his A110 were present.

    He had cleaned the car, but the final polish was done a few weeks ago, and it just looked very good in the sunshine. We stood talking next to it, and when his friends saw him they would come and talk and look all over the car. He got very favorable comments. Sam was very proud of his car.

    Ray....I obviously missed you at the show! Yes, Sam's car looked fantastic....very shiny! And he is very happy with it too! I liked his ex Alfa Zagato parked nearby too.....and the GTR XU-1 parked in the background...I had one of those in my youth...great little car.
