Just got home from what can only be described as an absolutely "charming" evening, at Zagame, celebrating the 40th birthday of a particular Daytona.

How many cars have had actual birthday parties, including cake, for them?

We all even sang happy birthday to the bloody thing! Ok some of us mimed  :o

I was particularly keen to see the car, as it is only six build numbers away from one I'm restoring, and it's nearly perfectly original, so a fantastic reference for details.

What a revered beast the Daytona is..... Such charisma.

Ian Cotter's time warp Daytona by the looks of it. I saw it in storage upstairs a year or so back, totally magnificent example of a Bedford Truck :p   
Couldn't resist; but it is a magnificent car and Ian redefines anal retentiveness with that car, never seen anyone else come close to the same level. JA used to look after the car so I've seen it on and off for the 35+ years I have been around these things.

What a great guy he is. Very humble and funny.

Told all kinds of stories, including NO SHOES in his car.

Car was nice, but far from perfect condition, and numerous very minor non originalities.
