Bored on Boxing Day... studying the nerds' assault upon this place, I wonder if this will this work...?

Press this button - press that one - ignore that 'Facebook' mention - ooh this seems to be working - umm Image Shack, where do I find the Forum code then? Oh - try that box there. Hmmm. Uploaded? I wonder. Oooh.

Maybe this unattractive, unappealing, unwelcoming new system does work, after all...?

Let's just try this again, in case that last was a fluke...

 

Yes - it was a fluke.  Total failure in attempt to post six more.

Doubt this has much to do with Vol 4, so my guess is the Gordinis of Behra no.2 10 5 lapls down, Trintignant no.4 retired transmission on 14 laps  and Schell no.6 retired engine on 4 laps, 1953 French GP at Reims ?

Hello again Doug.  Well done for persevering - I haven't managed to post a single photo since the changes!

 

Anyway, not being very knowledgeable about 1950s racing, the 'Rootes Group / Stirling Moss' transporter caught my eye. What car would that be anybody, in which category?

Hi Doug!

 

On Imageshack right click the photo you would like to show.

It begins and ends with "[img]"

 

Press Ctrl + C on your keyboard.

 

Press Crtl + V where you want to have it in your post on TNF.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Greetings from Sweden and welcome back!!

Spot on - flying northward above Ninety-Mile Beach we throttled back and followed this minibus for a couple of miles. At several points it bucketed and splashed through tide-gouged gulleys draining the beach. 'Wizard' was a brave boy regardless of the outcome...

Because it's Caen on 25.7.54. Well, the numbers fit. In which case the other 250F is Bira's. The Gordinis are #2 Jean Behra, #6 Jacques Pollet. #4 Clemar Bucci.

Beaches are funny things. I once drove to the Murray mouth in my long low Ford Galaxie, smooth wide and firm. Next time it was 4wd and diff locks in the Landcruiser. I have been on Sellicks Beach when about 25k was the max,, yet they raced bikes there on occasion. And it was smooth then as that beach more often is. Tides, seasons, weather dictate the conditions on the sand, and how wide it is too ofcourse

If not an early Vanwall, then the other team with a pseudo-scientific approach that weighed things a lot was BRM.

 

There's a Flat-12 Alfa T33 in the middle of the batch, and a rear-engined Birdcage, but also a turbocharged thing that I have no clue about.

Agree with Caen. Bieres Paillette is a northern beer.

 

Hotel de Strasbourg is a red herring.

Oh dear. The new technology has taken upon itself not to include a selected "quote" - haven't had it do that to me before.

 

Anyway, I was going to say that the first pic of the main batch is the engineless 250F chassis which Vandervell acquired for assessment purposes (#2513)

 

(I think you have posted the picture before, Doug)

That Porsche 917 with no. 29 is pictured at 1969 1000 km race at Österreichring - which was the first race win for that type of car.

 

And the final picture, I believe is from an Alfa Romeo P3.

As my campaign for vandalism at the MCG may prove a little premature, I've turned my attention to this. I think the 908/02 is Sepp Greger at the Nurburgring 1000km in 1970. JohnP :cool:

Siffert at the wheel, Ickx behind in the Wyer Mirage.

 

I was going to suggest Gerard Larousse in the 908 at the 'Ring, but maybe that isn't a Martini (Porsche Salzburg) car - not enough stripes! -  as John has identified.

I can only see four of them....
Top one with Chrysler engine the Cunningham replica perhaps, or even a real one, the 12 is Mike Bennett's car at last years FoS. Mike is on the lft with Merv Theriault , 57/58 Lotus mechanic, who was party to Jenks' Boxing Day antics, and the chap on the rt is the man who looked after the car for Mike. The split drive is for a tipo B monoposto. As someone said to me years ago, once Rodney Felton had had the drawings made up for his car they were readily available....... Not sure of the workshops, possibly Neil's or Jim Stokes', or C&G
Roger Lund

Pic no.8 of the second batch - A lovely shot of Ron Flockhart in his BRM P25 during practice for the 1957 French GP at Rouen? I assume that it is practice for he only lasted 2 laps of the race and it looks like Peter Collins' Ferrari sitting unattended in the pits

First thing this morning I received an email from Howden Ganley - part of which reads as follows: "Posting on TNF is far too technical for me !   However, (re the three Gordinis).  My bet is Caen . I also think that those

are 250Fs beside Stirling's transporter . (Friends) all disagree !

"Re your first ' chassis ' photo - I favour 250F as being the frame.

"I think it is 90 Mile Beach  and  that bloke is driving the Mercedes high-speed transporter."

 

Tut - right on all counts then - smart-arse.  

 

That Chrysler V8 engine is not in the replica but in the genuine Cunningham C4R Roadster at the Collier Collection in Naples, FL - the yumping 908 at Brunnchen is indeed Sepp Greger's - that is Simon T. in full flow during the Freddie March Memorial Trophy race at this year's Goodwood Revival Meeting, and the comm. box's dark windows don't greatly exaggerate the dank, cold and gloomy weather outside - then that is indeed Mike Bennett's beautiful little Lotus 12 with Mike and a mate whose name I fear I cannot recollect plus Merv Therriault over from Canada at the FoS - that is Ron Flockhart in the BRM Type 25 at Rouen '57 - oh and that is Gonzalez setting off in the works 375-Plus at Silverstone in 1954, chassis 0384AM not - as was thought for a long time - 0392, Dave, sorry.  The split-drive back axle is Alfa Romeo Tipo B Monoposto - photographed at its manufacturer's premises, Jim Stokes Workshops in Waterlooville, Hants.  The ventilated-seat red-car cockpit is indeed a Ford GT40 (surprised nobody jumped immediately onto that one) and the Bonhams shots are of the outstanding Dick Skipworth Ecosse Collection C-Type, ex-Bob & Ninian Sanderson, and of the Schumacher Benetton, both of which sold so well.

 

Ah yes - Slurp asked if I have seen 'Rush' yet?  Just like the Senna movie the answer is no.  I saw enough of the real blokes and the real action at the time thanks.  I don't really 'do' movies*.  In fact the last one that Mrs Nye and I actually went to see in a cinema was 'Grease'...only two years after the events depicted in 'Rush'...   :blush:

 

Any thoughts more closely identifying the 'Birdcage' chassis, or the Cobra Daytona Coupe, or in particular the shot of that tubular arrangement within some kind of sheet-metal sheathing, above?

 

DCN

 

PS - *But I do have three favourite movies which spring immediately to mind - 'The Shawshank Redemption', 'Dark Star' and 'Ratatouille' - each one, so far as I am concerned, simply sublime.

Interesting history --from V8-ted  to stolen...

 

The Cavalleria Book on the 375 Plus (written by a certain DCN) is in this point not correct--or the history was not known at the time of publishing!!
