The car photos are excellent. Anyone got any chassis photos?

I remember visiting the family in Edinburgh. They had a Peerless GT as well as an Isetta bubblecar - which had apparently on more than one occasion been rolled on the city's greasy cobblestones. "Just ask a passer by to put it back on its wheels!'
Does anybody have any photos or other stories. I now live in Australia and have lost track of the family. Would love any photos or tit bits!

The previous posts do seem to be slightly at odds with the info in the book however. The book has the Brothers Lola and Lotus sold to the US, and the LWS ending its days being crashed by a guy from south west Scotland.
How was the LWS FJ converted into a sportscar? do the photos of it above show it in a widened form? does anyone know when / where the crash happened?

I can confirm that both my dad and Doug are alive and well. My parents live in Edinburgh and Doug lives in Newtonmore in the Highlands. Both are still keen drivers and currently own Subarus. I didn't catch the motor racing bug from Dad so am not 100% sure of the model but I'm pretty sure dad drives an Impreza.
Dad is new to computers and the internet so is just getting to grips with email etc but he has seen this bulletin board and says it is "most interesting".
I should also say a hello to Jeremy. I just received an email from dad saying you are second cousins. Nice to make contact!
