Hi Glenn

I am in love with your project :-))

I have seen the original Napier-Railton at the Brooklands Museum in Weybrifge, Surrey England - it is indeed - a beast :-)))

I wish you every success with your Isotta-Fraschini V12 Aircraft engine based car and look forward to seeing more photos and videos as your complete the restoration.

Warmest regards - Stephen Page
