...As for cars being sold off to O/seas. Yes there are some very good ones on their way out which is sad but has anyone done a stocktake of what's arrived over the last 5/6 years? I think you may be surprised of the quality and quantity of cars that have landed here as well....
That's true, but I was at Bathurst to see the Mildren Brabham do the first recorded 100 MPH lap, I wagged school and jumped the fence at Warwick Farm on the Tasman Friday and stood next to Graham Hill and the 49, I spent a summer living in and driving a Kombi all around Europe watching AJ drive the FW07. That's what those cars mean to me. I know I don't own one but I don't care if they're worth $2000 or $2m.
People are having themselves on if they think historic racing in Oz is entertaining. I didn't watch one race at SMSP on the weekend (and that may in part be due to the layout of the circuit) but I stood, looked at, reminisced and listened to the cars for hours.
PS. Any bastard who thinks they can take that BT11 out of this country before I'm sprinkled on the rose garden had better look out. .
