Yes the English are mad- Part 2

Seen in the car park at this year's Le Mans Classic this "senior" English couple - wearing shorts for goodness sake although it was on the cold side of cool -who had driven from England in this tiny, fibreglass Fairthorpe sports car .Not sure about the model -Fairthorpes have never featured highly- make that at all-in my motoring interests-but suspect that it is an Electron.Probably a kit car and powered by some very feeble 60's British engine -probably a Triumph Herald 1200cc unit.
More than slightly mad- in the nicest possible sense.Each to their own.
