Lancias court row revved up.
Byline: RICHARD HAMMOND
Disputes over ownership of valuables aren't unusual but here's a salutary lesson about lending your kids the car. Or in this case, cars. Wealthy collector Ernst Hrabalek let his son Chris use his collection of four 1970s Lancia Stratos classics. Unfortunately his lad thought the cars were a gift for completing his degree in 2000. It's all wound up in court and last week the beak decided that the cars had been loaned, not gifted. The Lancia Stratos was a Ferraripowered sports car from the 1970s that was built to go rallying. No wonder there was a ding-dong over four of them: they're worth around 400 grand a pop these days.
