    Henry,

    My first car was an Imp Californian.

    Dunlop wheels and Avon wide cross-plys …. I use to drive it like it was a 911 … pity the summer of 1976 was so hot … I blew the head off it !!!!

    Imp – you just have to love them !!

    Hi Bumpy,

    Good to hear from you. It is amazing how many people have come out of the woodwork and said “I used to have one of those!” or “My dad used to have one of those!” since we got Chammy!

    I think its going to be good fun. Modern front rad and electric fan will hopefully see us OK with the overheating issues even if it is as hot as ’76!
