    I know/have met 5 drag racers, including a certain funny car champ. None of them are normal.

    They run front-engined rails, yet, down Famoso. Those cats are severely un-normal. Scare-E!

    None.

    Peace,

    Luckily it was all happening behind ​the driver, who is probably wishing he'd worn his brown driving suit.

    Another one...man, I always wanted a Nomad, 55 would be my choice but the five seven would do at a pinch.

    I think this one must be a Lotus, because the engine is the chassis....

    Wrong thread, and if I didn't have an aversion to orthopedic surgery or wheelchairs at this point in my life this would scratch an itch..
    Twin drums, countless other innovative little details.
    Must.not.think.
    Stick with the red 4 wheel quadbike, Johnny, no helmet required.
    Photo taken at the mysterious, hard to find, some would even say concealed yet supposedly public boat ramp. I mention it because a wbeffer will live close by to it when he's back in New Zild .

    I'm driving the little car all the time at the moment, it was even my only vehicle option for a week when home alone.

    I would quite like to find a good image of a Duncan Healey,they used to be made about fifteen miles from me and I knew a fellow who worked on them when he was quite elderly.As for Allard,they pre-dated the Healey Silverstone.

    John B, a local town ( Niles, Illinois ) ran these as unmarked police vehicles when I was in High School - circa early 1960's - You could not outrun them !!

    There is a cat building a modern cyclekart replica of the Grafton that is A-Mazing! No crank arm steering gear, though, which may be my favorite bit on the original.

    The earliest Puegeots had a rather clever rack and pinion steering gear. All exposed...

    I have seen this type of thing on several older cars,including reproductions of the first Daimler-Benz.

    After seeing the Duncan-Healey Drone I had a look for one of their better efforts as they were partly built about fifteen miles away http://www.clan-duncan.co.uk/duncan-healy.html .

    A.J. Baime's book "Go Like Hell" is a fun read about the ford/Ferrari wars. I believe there is also a film coming out this year based on Butterworth's book; "Ford VS Ferrari". Looking forward to that! I'm assuming everyone interested has seen "Rush"..on the Hunt/Lauda days of F1. The rivalry was a bit overplayed, but it was well produced and filmed.

    That was an interesting film from an historical viewpoint. They really changed F1 into a much safer occupation.

    Mr. Bertenshaw and any other Kiwis, are you going to the Auckland Brit & Euro Classic Car Show 2019 at Lloyd Elsmore Park on 3rd March?

    With final registrations being confirmed, we have a grand total of 1014 cars earmarked for viewing on 3 March �� This 1928 Sunbeam Tourer 16.9 was the 1000th car registered. Isn’t she grand? #akclassiccarshow


    I'm going to let the lad drive me in his 190e, the only European car between us that's in working order.

    For some reason I really like the mirrors mounted on the spare wheel covers of this Lagonda.

    John I've seen one of those Napiers running around Phillip Island sans any bodywork a few years ago.
    It was under restoration and was just a mobile chassis at that point.

    I don't think we have had a Fiat Ballila Sports lately.
    Sweet little car- I wanted one for my 21st, but Dad wouldn't countenance putting money towards foreign cars!
