    That's the late Paul England... another Aussie.

    From wiki:

    Paul England (28 March 1929 – 17 June 2014)[1] was an Australian former racing driver. He worked for the Repco company and raced his own 138 Holden-powered grey motor Ausca sports racing car that used a fiberglass body based on the A6GCS Maserati. The AUSCA also won the Tom Sulman Trophy at Amaroo Park in 1980 by new owner and driver Bruce Polain having restored the car with the assistance of Dave Mawer.
    England contested a single Formula One World Championship Grand Prix race, the 1957 German Grand Prix, in a Formula Two Cooper T41-Climax. He retired from the race due to a fault with the distributor.[2] After his return from Europe, England used a car by the same name Ausca but was a totally different creation - an 1800cc VW in front and a 2200cc VW in back both supercharged by the one supercharger with a special manifold to take the compressed intake to the other end, to win three Australian Hillclimb Championships, in 1970, 1973 and 1974.
    After retiring from racing, England owned a general engineering company called Paul England & Staff in Essendon, Victoria, Australia. Paul England & Staff is run by his first child and eldest daughter, Lisa Mary Coulton and her husband Steven Coulton. Paul had nine grandchildren.
    In the 1970s England's company built 1.6 litre Ford engines for motor racing which were referred to as an England engine.

    Three of the Aston Martin Ulster 1.5 litre cars were built for the 1935 Le Mans race, LM18, LM19 and LM20. LM21 was added to the team after Le Mans and before the 1935 TT race, where it finished in 11th place, and that car is shown below at the 1996 Coys International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone. The car is owned by Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, standing next to the car, and was driven at this meeting by his wife Annette, who is sitting in the car in this photograph.

    This is a 1951/2 Ferrari 375 4.5 litre Formula 1 car which was modified to take part in the 1952 Indianapolis 500 race. Four of the cars were entered for the race but three, driven by Americans Johnny Mauro, Bill Vukovich and Danny Oakes, failed to qualify. The fourth car, driven by Ferrari team driver Alberto Ascari, qualified but did not finish the race due to a failed rear wheel bearing. The Indianapolis 500 race at that time was one of the races which counted towards the Formula 1 world championship, which in 1952 (apart from Indianapolis) was for the smaller-engined Formula 2 cars because all the previous year's Formula 1 teams except for Ferrari had pulled out of racing. Because he was qualifying for the Indianapolis race Ascari missed the Swiss Grand Prix, the opening round of the Championship but was then victorious in the remaining six Grands Prix in his Ferrari 500 and became the 1952 World Champion. The car pictured here, serial number 04, was in a special display of Ferraris at the 1997 Coys International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone.

    Type 57C Bugatti.



    Roland Duce's 1938 Bugatti Type 57C with an 8 cylinder 3,300cc engine. It's apparently, though, a reconstruction of a Bugatti Type 57 Gangloff Coupé, based on a Bugatti Type 101 chassis with the engine from a Bugatti Type 57 Atalante.

    "Roland's 'type 57' exotic bodywork was designed by Gangloff in the early 1930's; however nobody was brave or rich enough to place an order. More recently the owner of a type 57 chassis took the plunge and got one built. Believe it or not the original designer now in his 90's came over to England to supervise the build."

    Until I read a recent article by the erudite and informed Ricardo Davila,I had no idea that the designer of the Voisin Laboratoire went on to design the Citroen 2CV.

    Delage 2 liter V-12, from 1924. Exquisite.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.
