I could believe the two Alain Prosts were done by the same hand (holding the can at a different angle) but I'm surprised Marc Surer didn't know how to spell his name :lol:

Rod it was probably autographed by the Alain Prost lookalike poser who was touring the nightspots conning people and getting free
drinks. My mates and i sprung him after shaking hands with him. He asked us not to expose him as he was doing well with the ladies.

Doing well with the ladies?

I can't even imagine the real one doing any good there...

I dunno, don't they say that "Small stature means big [somewhere else] to compensate"? Or was it just the "French" accent that wowed the Sheilas?

Physical attributes are not the only things that attract the ladies - power, wealth, fame seem to work as well. So I'm told

I can't believe this was drawn twenty years ago.
The late Clem Dwyer [ 1915-2004.]
Clem was the doyen of the WA racing fraternity. A close and life-long friend of the late Allan Tomlinson, he was involved in the construction of Allan's 1939 AGP-winning MGTA special and in their bold venture to Lobethal for the race. He also 'discovered' the wartime Caversham airstrip as a possible racing circuit, set WA speed records on a motorcycle, built the very successful Plymouth Special which survives in historic racing, raced a number of cars over many years then continued in historic events with a Lotus Elite and the Sprite pictured, until about the age of eighty. A true enthusiast, Clem was a familiar sight, pedalling his bike to the Claremont Speedway on Friday nights when in advanced years.

Yes, with a fold-up aluminium chair over his shoulder as he rode...

"I don't know what the police would think if they saw me," he'd say, "but a mate of mine had a ute parked in a good spot and we'd sit up there together to watch the racing every Friday night..."

In his latter years, of course, he had a Subaru WRX. I remember him telling me about it... and then adding, "I've also got a Westfield in the garage with a Mazda rotary in it." A few months later I called, and when I asked how the Westfield was going he replied, "I sold that. Now I've got an MGA."

Naturally enough, that sort of comment didn't satisfy my mental picture, so I asked him, "Have you fitted a supercharger to it yet?"

"Well, I was looking for it the other day, but it wasn't under the bench!"

His kind don't pass this way very often...

Perth's legendary car-builder, Cliff Byfield, celebrated his ninetieth birthday on Sunday.
Cliff is fit and well and currently building a Riley-based sports car.
The drawing depicts the three 'Byfield-Jaguars' that he has created over a half century span.
The top one, dating from 1955, is based on a Mk V chassis and motor and has a steel body.
The open sports was completed in the early '90s and has an XJ6 motor, disc brakes and a steel body.
The yellow aluminium-bodied coupe has a V12 motor in the rear and is mounted on a steel, back-bone chassis.
These cars represent a small portion of the magnificent work done by one man, to date.

There are two earlier threads on Cliff:

Cliff Byfield; a Western Australian

The cars of Cliff Byfield

There are photos and details of many of his cars, including the yellow one, in the second thread.

As previously noted on TNF, Perth's Bob Weaver owned the ex Ascari/Gaze/Davison Ferrari 500/625 and still kicks himself for parting with it in the sixties. He consoles himself somewhat through the tenuous link his Fiat Bambino has with Ferrari's racing glory.

Glad you liked it, guys! Yesterday I presented the framed original to Bob who was pretty chuffed. His Bambino is under restoration--
even has an Italian mechanic helping with the motor, and the aluminium body for his chassis-less Cunningham C4R-style special is being completed.

It does seem hard to caption a photo once you have posted it .

Top was for Paddy Hopkirk and Alec Poole at the recent october film show

 

I told Rod we had a local chap with a Soviet tank - and he came up with this too !

Well that is good to hear Ray - with all this  many people seem to have slight system variations and just one  false move leaves you stranded.

 No doubt we could all have well done without the latest changes and sadly there are many fewer interesting  topics and posts to look at these days .

Rod...Thank you very much for the brilliant cartoons and great SOH used in your postings here  :up: 

 

Your work reminds me of another brilliant Aussie favourite of mine....do you know one another? Ever crossed swords on paper? (that would be good to see! :cool: )

My pleasure Mick. Glad you like them! I wouldn't say I know 'Stonie' but we met briefly at the inaugural Australian cartoonists' convention at Adelaide back in the 80s.

Mention of a gathering of cartoonists reminds me of a classic cartoon. I can't recall who drew it but the scene is set at the 'Home for Aged Cartoonists'.

Three old codgers are sitting on a garden bench. One has his arms stretched out in front as he says; "Oh yeah? Well I once drew a nose THIS big!"

I know, I know. A picture is worth a thousand words!

Onya Rod...I can't begin to imagine what an Australian cartoonists' convention must be like...one liners flying fast and furious...and everyone wearing kidney belts to stop hurting themselves from the frivolity! :wave:

It WAS a lot of fun Mick. ISTR a couple of octogenarians, famous for producing a nationally syndicated comic strip, going missing.

   They were allegedly found sleeping it off under the vines after a 'tasting' at a Barossa winery.

Hello, Rod  :wave:

 

Lovely "new" work as always!  :up:

 

Thinking of you as we're in our first motel for 199 days on the road... the Route 66 Motel... and you know the relevance of that.  :kiss:

 

Hope all is well, still love the thread, keep them 'toons a comin'!

That's brilliant Rod - it's Barry to a tee. Or should that be t. Or tea?  Either way it's almost photographic.

 

Give him my best if he's still with you terrorising the kangaroos and looking for Chinese restaurants.

He's chez moi in South Australia right now and he wishes his fellow TNFers to note that his hat doesn't have corks! He is, however, absolutely tickled pink with Rod's marvellous cartoon.
