Yes, the extra tube is just a brace from the panhard tower across the car. When you use a panhard in conjunction with leaf springs there is a certain amount of conflict in movement, which can put extra strain on the mount.

E.B, profuse apologies for not thanking you for your pics as well. All the event photos make so much difference to those that weren’t there!

No apologies needed Mike. But thanks. At least I now know that crawling around round the Escort on my hands and knees was worthwhile! (Cue rolling around on floor smiley)

Know what E.B? I hate you! You dont need so much humor just for yourself. In fact I hate you twice because you look far too young!

Probably of few interest for many here but a Simca Versailles, Beaulieu or Chambered same base, only interior/exterior trims differ) was may be comparable to a Westminster but less powerful and more room for six. Mike explained to me why a Westminster can be fast but this Simca… I seem to recall some engine blocks had two water pumps but some details like the gear change mounted on the steering column or a three speed gearbox are not sporty… Isn't the driver Portuguese (no pun no nothing here) ?

There was a Vedette at the meeting, and there has been a quick Aronde in the past...

[Edit: Sorry, the whole thread was not appearing for me...Geoff Rose pilots the Aronde pictured at Winton]
