Definitely a Flaminia Stu...

Was it the Lancia put the boot in?
Doubt it, there'd just be a pile of rust behind the Mini if it was.
Aww come one, they weren't all made of Russian washing machines by Fiat... Flaminia's are wonderful things, 1800 boxer engines IIRC.
Of course I know what a dipstick is, you get called something often enough you look it up!
