    Hello Josh, Ive seen your car a couple of times at our club outings here in Perth , Australia and its now restored in BR Green.One thing I find amazing is that my car is chassis 860619 and here we are on the other side of the world and our cars were only 20 apart on the production line in 1962 and 20ft apart at a recent show!

    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
