Re: Joke !

Three men were very drunk and stopped a taxi for a ride. The taxi driver figured that they were not in their minds so, he just switched on the engine and switched it off and told them, “we have arrived”. The first man gave him money. The second one thanked the taxi driver. The third one slapped him ...

Re: Another Daimler ? No sh.t Sherlock !

IMHO the 420/soverign is an interesting and rare car, but it's a pity the famous XK engine replaced the Turner's engine... Even this engine was not perfect, it deserved a better fate.

Of course yes, it's a Sovereign. In France, this car is sometime called a Daimler 420.

Another Daimler ? No sh.t Sherlock !

Hello Today, I saved from scrapping a Daimler 420, for pocket money. The late owner had several vintage cars, popular French classics, Peugeot 403 and 404 saloons, Citroen 2 cv, and several Jaguar and Daimler. He passed away two years ago, and his son was dreaming about the treasures sleeping in his...
