Postby wixwacing » Tue 15 Jul, 2008 11:24 pm

For those who don't want to wade through the photos already posted I have started this second section . There are still quite a few pictures left to be posted too. Some more 'on road' shots.


Image

1961 Vauxhall Cresta.

This car takes me back to my apprenticeship days. The car had a double whammy for the inattentive mechanic. Firstly, the wrap around windscreen would catch your knees every time you got in and out and the curved front edge of the bonnet would catch you across the back of the head when you were emerging from under it!! Thank you Mr Vauxhall!


Image


This car is better than any model can ever do justice. I hope Autoart do this colour too!


Image


An all time favourite pocket rocket 'frog eye' sprite.


Image


Another favourite from the early sixties. The sprite big brother (or sister)!


Image


Ferrari must be getting proud of their engineering. It's framed under glass these days.



Image

Some classic American engineering. A 1939 Chrysler 75 at windy point.

Image

It's interesting to note that Ferrari had their own car park, beer tent and room in the pub!


Image


1962 Triumph TR4, I just love that blue!


Image

An Aussie classic, 1977 Holden Torana A9X

These cars were built to be driven fast but unfortunately nothing else! The inside always looks unfinished and the cabin noise required ear muffs ! 1972 De Tomaso Pantera GT4

How can so much beauty be attributable to one car!!!

Another sacred Aussie Classic. The 1971 Ford GT HO Falcon.

When I'm not racing slotcars,
I'm out in the back yard, burning food!!

When I win, it's because of my talent, not my car or my controller!
