Brilliant!
Yesterday Neil and I were talking to the owner of the company that makes those and he did think they had three signed for auction and one more that he didn't know the destination of.

Looks like you all had a great day and Tintin's momento is a real treat to treasure.

Steve sour S8 is a stunner. And I do like the way they look sitting on those Avus wheels.

You can't beat Ebony Black for sheer shininess, especially indoor . Pity I didn't get to see it, but I'm looking forward to seeing in the daylight tomorrow morning

Two for auction, one for Philip Glenister, and one for me, I think ....

It is, and I'm lucky to have it, and it kind of made up for not being able to be there

I agree - a bit more "muscular" than the 20s, weirdly...but maybe that's just the film connection in my brain

I do feel very, very fortunate to have the full deck of (a) diamond-cut 20s, (b) W12 '18s and (c) 6 spoke Avus 18s. I'm not sure that I can think of anything else I need really?. Now, anyone need a set of 18" 9 spokes?

Though what you really need Stephen, for the full Ronin look, is a set of PF 18" Avus....
PS Don't ask me, mine are long gone.

I know, but I'm very happy with the ones I've got - I prefer these centre caps
