    Owned by Bill Mackin 1969 to 1989. Beautiful car, with a gorgeous exhaust note.

    A very historic car. LT 1 is one of three lightweights built to race at Le Mans. In the USA they were known as Silverstones

    I would love to get copies of those editions of the magazine. This car holds something special for me. I have fond memories of my grandfather driving it...the exhaust note was spectacular. And it was probably the first car I got to sit in the driver's seat of.

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
