618/3 was the car that I loved as a kid. Harry Entwistle was from Hamilton, as was I. I used to drool over this car, and sometimes helped to push it onto the trailer. He didn't often win, but I sure willed him on. Car #132.

 15, 11, 17  
Another way to look at the 15 is that it is a jumbo version of the 11. The 17 is a mini version of the 11.
 D-Type lite :-)  
It and the Eleven are gorgeous in the same way as the D-Type Jaguar
 Move over Ferrari and Aston  
Even quicker than the 11. It could beat the establishment of motor racing, coming from a small factory. It would be marvellous to drive and race one of these.
I saw one of these up close once, it might have been a kit car now that I thinkabout it. It is a very cool vehicle. The ultra low body makes it look very surreal. A beautiful piece of automotive history! The center of gravity must be about 4 inches off the ground!
