I wonder what it is like around town, look pretty sharp in a Tesco's car park. All those experts asking if it is a proper one...
I'm pretty sure this car (which has an excellent provenance and undoubtedly IS the "real thing") has NEVER in it's life been road registered in any country. So driving it down to Tescos isn't really an option! I've driven a couple of street legal close replicas (in terms of engine power, cam, carb setup etc) and they are a proper handful, with a throttle like an on/off switch, no power to speak of under about 4k revs, won't idle under 1500rpm, choke up and foul the plugs at the first hint of traffic and a clutch so hard and fierce you wish for an autobox! Get it on a track and probably even Clarkson would approve! But a car prepared for track in this fashion would be a tiring and tiresome disappointment on the road!
