Yes. Would join in with a comment about being sick of it or something, but a bit too trite for the high level of humor maintained here. Just seems like it takes one of the more uninteresting points of a car design and features it, although it tends to be done where the cars are not exactly the most interesting of vehicles. When the hood or decklid opening becomes a feature for a Cutaway, I have come to expect the humdrum behind it.
Wow, don't remember the last time I used that word.

We may even have to start The "open hood" cutaway thread if it gets any more serious !!

I'm sure there is a Formula Junior, Cooper, out there somewhere, as well, exhibiting leverage.

Jim Allington did a Cooper on full lock after I persuaded him to do it, but afterwards he decided that it didn't look right, and "never again!"

It's a definite bonnet/boot job. I'm going to have a quick search.............

Niether bonnet nor a boot, but hinged.

It's a pretty safe bet that the tip of the tail would touch the ground on the centre-line of the car, so I don't know what hapened there!

Now if only I'd taken a photo from the back of the car we may have been able to see how it should have looked :)

Interesting looking car, there, Werks. Any further information on it as to racing class? I would assume that from the name and the wedge design it raced in 1979?

Yes, you are correct, Embers, Ceskoslovenske Formule, 1979.

And at this point I should direct you to the following sources, for a much more informed view. :up:

I had talked about the collection of illustrations in the Giovanni Cavara publication from the Automobile Club d'Italia titled 6- Vetture Ai Raggi X, Modelli Sport e Competizione. Title just rolls off the tongue, doesn't it. I had posted a few of them earlier, and just went through another push on scanning some new material, including a group of aviation cutaways out of the RAF Yearbooks out of the 70s and 80s and Air Internationals along with about a dozen more of the Cavara pieces from this book. I will just pick up where I left off with a group of six for this evening.
We will start out with the Alfa Romeo Giulia TI from 1962.
I am going to post these at a bit larger size than the earlier automotive pieces. Note that this is a tough book to work with, as many of these pieces are rather beat up, as if the originals had been rather mishandled before they were shot for the printing. I have cleaned up a lot of stuff on these, but there will still be some scratches and things that show from the coarse paper of the book.

This was one of those rather cool sports coupes that had a lot of character at the time, I thought. Rather misshapen in some ways, but I always like the car. The 1959 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Special from Giovanni Cavara.

Last piece for the evening, this is the initial Ferrari, called the Auto Avio Costruzioni Tipo 815 from 1940. Wonder what happened with the other 814 models? From Giovanni Cavara, in case you have forgotten.

Thanks for scanning those, Tom -- It saves me from doing them! They are great sharp scans, also, good work!

The 815 designation for the first Ferrari indicates an 8-cylinder 1.5-litre engine. Ferrari used that sort of model identification a lot.

Werks,
Just so you know, I have now scanned through page 42 of the book of 104 pages in the Cavara book, so plenty to go, and a bunch still not assembled or cleaned up to go yet. I just checked and have 213 pieces between the one and two part illustrations. Look for more Cavara, Kimble and Davey Haynes covers, Badrocke and Weal Aircraft, plus some miscellaneous other types in there. Think I can stop scanning again for a while until they are all out, but figure that there will be something like 130 here, and this is not a spec out of the Air stuff, under half out of the Cavara book, and I am only half-way through the Haynes stuff.
Not pulling much more out of the magazine material, but still have a bunch of those in that file, too ...
Someone mentioned that there are still many things coming in from other sources, and this is from the stuff just sitting here at the moment ... I love seeing all of the other sourced material that you have been pulling up, so really look forward to Marc and Mariner and a few others getting back into the swing of things here.
Quite a party ... well, if you are into this sort of thing, of course.
Tom West

Here is a higher resolution image of the Tyrrell 022, illustrated by Tony Matthews. This has been previously posted, but is incorrectly listed as a Tyrrell 019 on page 43. The car was designed under the technical direction of Dr. Harvey Postlethwaite and Mike Gascoyne for the 1994 Formula 1 season. When Dr. Postlethwaite died, he left a reputation of achieving much with limited budgets. This car was an example of that. While it was not a winner it did finish in the points for Tyrrell several times, improving on the previous year’s performance. Curiously, this design rejected the high nose pioneered by Dr. Postlethwaite with the 019 and, later, unanimously recognized in Formula 1 as of aerodynamic benefit.

For those with a interest in racing genealogy, after 30 years the Tyrrell Racing Organisation was sold in 1998 to become BAR, which begat Honda Racing F1, which begat Brawn GP, which begat Mercedes GP.

Thanks... I really enjoy his work. The title flows a little easier in English - 60 Cars in X-ray... but doesn't sound anywhere near as interesting.

The last two are not vehicle related - I find them interesting, but if others do not, I will quit posting them...

First is a nuclear reactor, World Reactors #30 - Yankee, in Rowe, MS, USA, operational from 1960-1992. It is by an artist I don't think we have seen - TL MacKinnon.
Posted Image

The second is by Frank Soltesz from Armstrong Cork's How Industry Works series and is captioned How a Theater is Air Conditioned. The ad ran in the 03/10/1951 edition of the Saturday Evening Post.
