    eric,
    i assume that rick kellett still has his D type, but do you know of anyone else that in this part of the country that has a harrington? does phil perron still have his lemans? i think there was another around bellfontaine ohio, jan's went to iowa and i know of three on the west coast with one having a V6,brian boyer has wally's and we have three. i wonder where there are others.

    Here a pic of a nice pale blue Harrington at our recent Nationals. The club social sec has a red Le Mans restored by Mal Clark

    Matt,

    The car you pictured belonged to ian spencer, a founder of the SAOCA and board. He sold it to AU a couple of years back. We are lucky to get such a nice properly restored Harrington in the country, no bodges on this stunning car, I hope it drew the attention it deserves.

    Same car, different view. My wife and I stumbled upon the car as it was on its way to the West Coast to be shipped down under. The photo was taken while scooting down the interstate at 65 mph.

    Michael, Yes it did. Many admiring inspections. It arrived on a trailer (it's in the background) and what a stunning random coincidence Bill, to see the same car on a trailer crossing the USA. Fortunately it made it to AU safe and sound unlike a recent import that seems to have been dropped somewhere along the way.

    we were at the vintage races at mid ohio this weekend and an ex hillman owner ( now a volvo 1800 owner ) told us that a customer at the shop where he works had a lemans many years ago and he had some work done on another car recently and was telling them he still has the lemans stored. it's in pretty sad shape from what he was telling them. they are going to ask him where the car is and if he would sell it.

    Hi Jeff

    It was sold for £ 64960 pounds Sterling (10% commision) and went to USA. I don't think the new owner wants me to announce his name. You will know sooner or later from the results from the tracks.

    Le Mans Spears and side trim

    Hi

    I just reread one of your posts from years ago and at the time it seemed you might be able to get replica side trims made in Manila...did that ever work out for you? What are the results like and can more be made? I have one spear but need everything else!

    Best regards
    Clive
