The coupe being 'the brightest car of its time' - like it cool

I think that's a great idea sending him a message from FCCUK congratulating him on his award thumb. You never know he may put in a guest appearance at The Lakes !

And he has graced us already with a reply cool

Simon! Club members! Thank you so much, you are indeed kind! Think of the award as mostly an homage to a great car I had the privilege of being asked by the Muses and Fates to bring its concept to life (I see it that way, as am "egg" so cool that it caused its own chicken into being to hatch it! The chicken was me, of course. We call this process of the "intangible' becoming "tangible" one of "Instantiation"––I am thinking of changing my job description away from Designer into Instantiator).

Of course much credit also goes to Pininfarina Engineering, otherwise you would be restoring very poor sketches!

I would be very happy to receive one of your calendars!

Best regards and thank you again,


Chris

Great stuff, Chris must be more than pleased to see the Coupe still being held in such high regard all these years later. driving

Bearing in mind he's probably a very busy bloke so taking time to respond is pretty cool - and wanting a calendar to boot thumb

Lovely reply from him.

I wonder if he would be open to an Ask Me Anything (AMA) or members come up with some questions, which get presented to him to answer as a one off thing?

Well done Edinburgh, great result! Perhaps he'd like a signed calendar by, er himself? He could give it back at the end of the year and you could raffle it!
Whilst you've got his attention you could ask him what that weird thing is in your pile of bits!
PS what does 'instantiator' mean?

'One who, or that which, instantiates' - according to wordsense. Fairly obvious to me .. confused
