I see one of the Barrie Watt cars there, I think that's his Offy...

Somewhere I have a pic of Barrie with his whole crew from the fifties around the car he was racing at the time. It's a time warp thing, a replica of a photo taken in the day, but they're all fifty-odd years older.

That is the odd thing. For some reason I didn't take one. Probably because I am familiar with the car and have seen it numerous times. Doesn't make sense really does it?
