In addition to the Milano, Bruno has 3 TVRs, a Grantura, a Tuscan V8 and a 3000S as well as a Devin-Triumph. Devin was a builder of fibreglass bodies in the US and Bruno's example is mounted on a Triumph TR3. It bears a remarkable resemblance to the Milano roadster which, I've heard, is no coincidence. Devin also built complete cars. I really like TVRs. Don't be surprised to see the odd TVR and Devin thread in future.

Earlier Milano GTs
Well, I said I'd post a picture of the earlier GT but you probably didn't expect me to go to Switzerland for it. This car belongs to Bruno von Rotz who describes himself as a "petrolhead from Switzerland". Only a few weeks ago I noticed that Jane Sanders had posted a series of photos on the last Goodwood Revival meeting on Flickr that included this very car. Bruno contacted me after reading the GT2 post yesterday. He, of course, is very keen to gather up as much information as he can about his car's history and about the JWF marque in general. I'm sure we can help him out can't we? I see it has NSW on the side and also a 179 badge. It is the 3rd Milano GT built and apparently raced in Prodsports in the early 70s powered by a Buick V8. Among others, I am hoping when Peter Smeets and Steve Rowley read this their Milano recollections will go to work.
