    Barn find, barnfind or сарай найти?

    Barn find, barn find or сарай найти? France is no longer the land of unexpected finds. The former Soviet republics have adopted that banner.

    Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint

    The Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint - with body designed by Bertone - has only been in production for four years. In that period barely 7.000 copies rolled out of the factory gates.

    Lenham Le Mans Coupe - Missed opportunity?

    In the British town of Kidlington we arrived at the right place at the right time. A David Scott had just pushed his unfinished piece of work out of his damp shed to take pictures. A 1965 MG Midget with Lenham bodywork. Such a 'kit' is still for sale today and is […] More
