Nr6:  Lancia 2000.   It was the last evolution of the Lancia Flavia berline.

The grille shape clearly said ”Lancia” to me but for the life of me I just could not find the right one. Thanks Lieven, it was an interesting quiz Very Happy

Couple of my favourite clips.

Bathurst handicap club race and coming from the back.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toLPTjE1GZk

Late to grid and has to start last from pit lane

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BGpdneSC2Q

I know, it's not cars but a cool clip all the same.

I think I may have been at this race meet.

Lot's of fun there Rod, engine sounds, cutting apexes, shifting.

Mark is on the lookout, sent me several off Facebook Market Place. One with the John Cooper Works engine package.

Yep, certainly is an iconic track and car Dave.  From the driver's perspective you can really see how steep and tight some of the track is.  You can also sense the frustration of the Falcon driver with the slower cars really keeping him hobbled.  "Around this corner and...Oh look, there's a Brick in my way."

Yes I know the car and I drove one a few times. It was in 1970 the fastest front WD car in the world. The engine was a shortened Maserati V8, made by Alfieri, as in the Indy. That's why it has the unusual 90° angle. The gearbox is the 5 speed of the DS. The hydraulic system is also the same as the DS. It's a pitty that in the US, you didn't get the same SM as we did, due to the regulations: The car normally has 3 rectangular headlights with the centre ones that turm with steering but hydraulically operated and not by cable as with the DS. The lights were also covered with glass as the number plate. Then, there are the side reflectors and the unnecessary chrome strip on the side only on US models. The SM also had the DIRAVI system which stands for DIrection à RAppel asserVI: The steering wheel comes automatically back to the centre position. Also as an option, the RR wheels were available. RR stands for Résine Renforcée: wheels made of resin by Michelin, lighter and stronger than aluminium wheels

The car in the video has a suspension problem. Ther is no gas in the spheres anymore. You can see the car jumping up and down. It's an easy test to do: Whenpushing on the fenders, you can push the car easily to the ground. Without gas, it's a horror to drive.

I always liked the pursuit in Mean Machine with Burt Reynolds driving and Lynyrd Skynyrd on the radio

And in the 1971 Morocco rally with the resin wheels

The Burt Reynolds thing. What a horrible way to treat such a wonderful car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gotta admit, I'm a car guy, not a destruct a car guy. I get no thrill out of that, Hollywood or not.

Just me, not representative of the world.

I would love to own one, but I'm well past my "Sell by date."

Mark and I did just this morning replace the clutch master cylinder on my MG though. He bled while I filled and pumped.

Cars, cars, and more cars - Page 5 Sm10

This is the SM I drove a few times. It's a replica of the SM Mylord, a convertible made by the Paris coachbuilder Henri Chapron. He also made a 4 door version called Opéra.

Arrest me red Lieven. Love it and the Opera four-door.

Bring a trailer SM was "bid to $23,855". I don't know if it sold or if the reserve wasn't met.

This is a TV advert for Jean Paul Gaultier's perfume scandale with the SM Opera


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wlh4-7ht5lA

Chapron was a great coachbuilder for pre war and immediate post war luxury cars. With the decline of coachbuilding, he concentrated on the transformation of serial built cars to coupés and convertibles, mainly DS and also SM

http://leroux.andre.free.fr/carrossierchapron.htm


And the promotion movie for the SM in the US


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DvKowAfwow0




Finally a period movie about the cars used by the gendarmerie in France in the early 70's: DS, SM and Alpine
