David Pound and I are at work on the successor to This Week at The Shop, to be known as Talking of Sports Cars.  Hardly an original name, although the imperatives of that moment and this one are strikingly similar.  Yes, this is our early spring weather.  BTW: The 2nd image, from a few years ago, is an "A" series overdrive conversion to  a Lea Francis TX, although I believe Armstrong Siddeley built those gearboxe.
Let's talk.
