    Incredible.

    That's how to do a family heirloom and fantastic to read about too.

    Thanks, Just hope that cars like the Daytona can still be driven on the road in 30ish years time when I'm ready to pass it onto the next generation.

    Great car and story plus a fantastic dad, Matthew. No car was passed down to me, but a spirited drive with my father behind the wheel; with his with my mum and my dads mum as passengers (witch made my granny religious) in a Alfa romeo GTV 1750 in 1975 sealed the deal for me. I became a petrolhead and alfa fan. As someone wiser than me said: "We do not own these cars, we just take care of them for the next generation!"

    Great read. But these are without a doubt the worst ever photos of a Daytona, making it appear bulbous and ungainly, lacking proportion to it's fluid, balanced lines. Sorry, just have to say.

    The car currently has a Pirelli P4000 tyres on it which have a squarer sidewall than the original Michelin XWX tyres. As a result they don't fill out the arches quite as well as well as perhaps they should perhaps making the car look a little bulbous. It you click on the links at the end of the article you will see I'm researching tyre upgrades and maybe going to the 9" rear rims. As to the photos I think they look great Jonny did a great job.
