Always wanted to own one.
Everytime one came up for sale, it was at the wrong time.

Ahhh.. maybe one day!

I have a friend with one - pretty though it is, it's a bit of a handful to drive. Loads of power but not a brilliantly balanced handler .... much to my surprise.
It's more of a poseur than a sports car.
Regards,
Brian

The Facel Vega is beautiful!

I have told this story before I remember seeing a Facel Vega in person years ago at the at car show at Hawks Nest.

I will contact my Uncle and see if he still has the photo of the Facel Vega.
