Picture 1 above , does anyone know about Copyrights to this ?

Picture 2 above , I cannot make this one fit. It is to be the Italian GP 1965 , Rindt in a suit(?) could be right , Centro Sud too , even the Opel Blitz (usually Citroen) of Honda , but what is Alan Manns big modified ex-Scarab transporter doing there ? COPYRIGHT : McKLEIN .

Picture 1 - Have you tried a Google "Search by Image"? - if the picture is elsewhere on the net it should find it.?

Picture 2 - Some years they had a GT race, the Coppa Inter-Europa or some such name, on the Italian GP weekend or one very close to it - the race where Salvadori beat the GTOs in one of the Aston Martin 'Project' cars. Could they have had such a race in 1965?

Picture 1 is Le Mans 1955 showing a bit of Maseratis OM lorry on the left , then half of their 642 big van , the racers are the 200S and 1 of the 300S'. Also to be seen is part of Solex Carburettors service van , a Citroen HY.

Picture 2. I have not found any logic reason on this combination of transporters (and driver).

There was a racing show starting Spt. 1st and ending "the evening of the GP day", showing amongst others a GT40, a Cobra Daytona, a Cobra 427 and a Lotus Indy. I will send you a snippet in German by mail.

I think it is worth scrolling round many of the categories on the Stilltime archive site
http://www.stilltime...ery/51-144.html
The Eric Oliver/ Denis Jenkinson Austin K8, as reproduced later by Oxford models.
as there is some interesting material.

I hear the ROFGO collection now comprises a freshly restored Gulf transporter - just displayed at Syon Park/Salon Prive. Eye watering amount paid for it.

Hi All.

I just saw this decals sheet for sale at EBay
http://www.ebay.es/i...49#ht_720wt_934
It is curious Camel Team Lotus continued using RENAULT as service cars in spite the Team used HONDA engines from 1987!!!
So there must be JPS black liveried Renault Spaces from 1985 and 1986 seasons....
Does someone have more info?

Yes, both Mercedes Benz (loaded with a spare W125) and Audi brought reproductions of their 30s transportation, the Ecurie Ecosee transporter was there plus a couple of others. Sorry I didn't take photos but someone will have.

Rhett , this picture was shot 31/07/2008 by a NIKON E5600 ,black and (white see picture properties) ,with a gulf(background) bigger(!) than the Porsches ,its not a reverse picture,the letters "PORSCHE" are clear . Big question .
this picture was shot in 2008 from what ? a newspaper BW ?

Because of the pixels it seems to be from a newspaper, so what? Now the Gulf is bigger than the Porsches? Maybe because of the accident you told us of? Two or three? I have another confirmation that the Gulf was sold to BMW, after its time at Dr. Marko ist was scrapped most probably, the other two are now at Brumos and RofGo. That's it. The end. But - there is one last mystery to be solved...

A newspaper maybe ,but what newspaper? and there are too many differences beetween the sizes of the transporters and the cars foreground,it seems like if two parts have been joined .
this picture was shot in 2007 not1970 . Probably a photoshop ,if you want I can add a forth transporter in that picture .

Being quite familiar with photography, printing, and Photoshop, I think the photo is genuine and unaltered. Because of the coarse screen dots, it appears to have been originally printed in a newspaper or magazine back in the day; later someone shot the image with a digital camera. Because of the consistent lighting and shadows, I doubt very much that was faked.

I am quite familiar too,and it appears that two parts have been reassembled ; how can you explain the size differences between the gulf (background) and the Porsche (foreground) ? probably a great event in photography ,background bigger than foreground .

the shadows are part of the first lesson you learn in photoshop .
for the dots ,its more easy to do ,you have only to reshot BW to equalize .its a beginner work.
If you are a photoshop user ,look carefully at the man walking with a mallet .

I don't know whether it's of any real importance, but I've just seen a pic of what is claimed to be a race transporter on another website. It's on Pistonheads (I know, I know!) on the Classic cars Forum, and the thread concerns Classics Left To Die.

There's a number of photos of 60s/70s cars left on a farm and rotting into the ground, and in amongst them is a 50s Commer with panel-van bodywork which the snapper claims was a race-car transporter. Presumably there is lettering on the side to indicate this. It may be something or nothing, but I thought I would bring it to the attention of this thread in case it's of any import.

Since this in one of the sensible websites that does not mind 'too' much who we link to in the name of research here is the link to the page with the Commer on, it's about half way down the page.

I've had a look at the pic with photoshop but could find no additional info hiding in the high lights or the shadow's.

Yes I had a look at some of the additional stuff and ended up going through 30 pages of posts to find out what this is :love:

Yup, that one ran and ran and ran....If you got to the end you'll have found that it took a forum member to knock on door and ask, in order to satisfy the "need to know". A bit naughty.

(I sort of thought that the abandoned Commer van may be of some importance, since back then many teams, even at National level, used to tow a trailer or use an old bus or whatever. To have such a spacious transporter MAY (stressed) indicate a well-known driver or entrant.

Rob Walker used that type of Commer , so did Scirocco and Emeryson I believe. Another possible user could have been Peter Berry Racing Ltd. but I have no pictures of that.
