Marbles, schmarbles.

In my garage I have a genuine front wing recovered from Silverstone years ago, near Abbey. I'm pretty sure it's from Fangio's Alfa 159, or it might have been Villoresi's. They were both sponsored by Thrifty Car Rentals weren't they?

Anyway, the wing flew off and landed right in my lunchbox. It was really painful.

£50 and it's yours, or I can do two for the price of three.

My mate has cloned Elvis from the remains of a hamburger, I told him he was a fool, he should have cloned Marilyn Monroe from the bottle of Chanel No5 he bought at a Hollywood auction...

I do love this bit: "BRM QUATER SCALE DRAWRINGS (2) BY AUDLY WOOD"

Not only NOT Works drawings, but PRINTS (20 off), this isn't apparent unless you bother to read well down the page. No, I don't know why I did...

Puts me in mind of Barry Waterhouse (I think it was) who was going to restore a Lancia D50 from a bit of Pirelli tyre tread and a gallon of Monte Carlo seawater. :lol:

How nice to be reminded of Barry on this glorious sunny morning. Actually I think he had a scrape of paint off the barriers.
RIP mate.

Just purchased this lot after direct negotiation with the seller. He also had ~27 issue of 50's-60's Road and Track and Sports Cars Illustrated that I also purchased. Cost to me was less than $16 per AY and $0.75 per issue.

Shipped in 2 boxes. I received the first box yesterday, containing 10 AY. All were in dust jackets and in excellent condition. Lots to read !

Do you remember that enormous intercooler he had on the Uno? The powers that be wouldn't let him run it in the Italian Intermarque series, claiming that it improved the performance. Barry said "No it just stops me blowing the engine up so often so its an economy measure".
You went too young my friend.

This one has been making the rounds here in the US. This link is to Craigslist, but it is also being auctioned on Ebay from what I understand. I don't know as though I would go as far as calling it a scam, someone just might think they have an actual Ferrari.

http://losangeles.cr...3961082976.html



I don't know what that is, but it sure as heck isn't a Ferrari. Some sort of home built body but I'm not sure about the frame. Someone said it has some Jaguar front end parts.

I was just curious what the folks here thought of it. Also if anyone can spot any Ferrari in it.

The complete front and rear suspension and front subframe appear to be from an E Type! Nice bodywork though.
What a strange project.

lads, I've just bought this item on Ebay,  I think it's a presentation medal / coin for the 1952 Mille Miglia.

As you can see, on one side it has the Autombile Club d'Bescia crest,  on the other a date stamp and the 19th (I think) MM logo.  Probably barking up the wrong tree, but would there be any way of finding out just who was presented with these medals, I'm presuming at least every finisher received one?

It looks like a finisher's medal to me, Gary. Would it be between 4 and 5 cms in diameter? As Guido says, there seem to be a lot around, regularly appearing on eBay.

I don't think there's any disappointment,  it certainly looks and feels old. Yes Alan around 5cms across,  will look neat framed.

Lets hope its genuine but as already mentioned there are many fakes around,one of the main checks is the weight as whilst there are many photo's of these medals around its not only hard to determine the original weight its also difficult to replicate.

 

The Ebay one looks cast to me whilst this one(if genuine) looks forged but i'm obviously no expert.

The steering column mount looks genuine but I think the rest could be be fake.

That's expensive. Looking at the photos it is going to take either a lot of manhours or a lot of money to get that pristine and fit to run. Then there is the £20k plus for an engine. May look good on paper but they are heavy old things.

I know several TNF readers also have interests in aviation, some of whom may be interested in this volume of lecture notes on the Britannia Airframe from 1959/1960 a friend of mine has for sale.

Here's a real bargain for someone with plenty of time on their hands. Worth every penny...of the starting price.

 

http://www.ebay.co.u...=item1c3b92dc82

 

The description says that it has leather seats, but they could just be the remains of the previous owners.

I thought TNF members would be proud of this West Kingsdown householder who felt that a batch of 1970s Brands programmes should be buried for posterity.  Presumably an enthusiast with a keen sense of how future generations might study the sociological significance of Maidstone & Mid-Kent MC race meetings?  Or did said enthusiast tell his wife he'd taken all his memorabilia down to the tip, when in fact he'd hidden it in the flowerbeds?  Or was it her who did the burying? Did she finally snap, incinerate the Autosports and store the programmes three feet under?  And did they find the body?
