Shelby AC Tribute GP

AC-Readspeed230Here’s a superb Readspeed GP TS1 230 up for sale on the bay… “designed to replicate the Shelby AC Cobra race car whilst keeping the genuine originality of the Lambretta and the GP200 it originated from. As such every detail of the build was meticulous even down to the dark blue metallic and Wimbledon white paint which was from the Shelby works in Las Vegas” 

An original Italian GP 200 with matching frame numbers, the current owner reckon stop have spent over £25k getting the scooter to look this good. One of the ‘signature pieces’ is the (genuine Taffspeed) exhaust, modified to replicate that of the AC Cobra, which , along with the vented side panels make this scoot truly unique.

The names Bug. Bond Bug.

Bond Bug Front 3/4I came across this absolutely stunning, fully restored 1972 Bond Bug on eBay Here. I’ve written about these iconic little vehicles before… (follow the link in the Quasar post!). In the seventies they looked straight from the future …and they still look like they are from some “Space 1999” alternative future (I know that 1999 is in the past, but you get my point!). I showed this post to my nine year old son and he said “Cool! Why don’t they make cars like that today?” Good question!

I honestly don’t think I’ve stumbled across anything on eBay that I’ve immediately wanted so much… Lambrettas included! A snip at a quid under £13k. I’m buying a lottery ticket on the off chance.Bond Bug Three-wheeler BondBug-2 BondBug-3 BondBug-4 Bond Bug InteriorHere’s the eBay link again.
