Lancia Appia wanted ad., Dec. 99
Mon, 27 Mar 2000 23:10:21 +0100

Hi, Huib!

This is just a quick note to thank you, and to say that I have found a lovely Series 1 Appia, for sale by the parent company of the Minardi Formula 1 team in Faenza. A really helpful guy called Tony, in Florida (thanks, Tony!) put me in touch with the ad., having seen my 'wanted' ad. on your website.

I now have the car back in England, and it is a beauty, so I think I owe you and your excellent website a big 'thankyou'! I've put in some pictures of the car so that you can see what it's like. It's all original inside and out, and had only one owner before the Minardi company owned it. The reason it has whitewall tyres on the back and not the front is because the back ones are the originals from the 50s and the fronts were replaced some time when whitewalls had gone out of fashion...

Thanks once again for your help in allowing me to realise my dream! I am now a frequent visitor to your site!
