Rod, I've just cruised through this thread...

The tragedy is that the vast majority of your cartoons have slipped off (or are tainted) because of the changes in the web-hosting arrangements.

Would there be any possibility of you putting them on Postimage and editing them in where they belong?

And while you're at it, do you think you could post a few of your Austin Healey ones on this thread?

Sounds like work --and time Ray. Unfortunately my images are not neatly filed together! I'll have a go when I can.

Just  what Rod calls a 'rough' - but is actually superb - when my neighbour bought a Russian tank to drive round his field - I kid you not . Paddy was our speaker.

Rod has done  so many wonderful cartoons for us to present to guests  over the last 8 years. Such a shame several image hosts have  removed images demanding ransom for re-instatement

That tank 'toon absolutely kills me!

(despite my not being in the helicopter) ;-)

Richard, let's arm wrestle for that first book. I have one that's not doing nothin'. :-)

         Thanks for the plug Rich. I could bask in that but must 'fess up' as that one is not a rough. You may have been thinking of the Rosemary Smith 'Khyber Pass' one

which was a rough but which I think she has used in her book.

         Eric, no pointless scrapping now! I'm wrestling with finding the time.

CCF22012019-00001-1.jpgWell here is one Rod did commissioned by F1 driver Mike Wilds in January this year. Mike as all of you will know  has had a 55 year career as a professional racing driver  driven over 240 different types of racing car , countless wins  and I think I am right in saying drove in 5 different cars in F1. A brilliant driver and  one of the nicest blokes you could ever meet.

Well Mike got a drive in the very tail end of BRM when it was in the hands of Louis Stanley . Mike gave his honest objective assessment of the 201 in that the engine did not give anywhere near competitive power  and suggested to big L  that fitting a DFV would instantly  make it a far better proposition. Louis Stanley flew in to a rage on the spot and fired Mike then and there for suggesting something unpatriotic - he regarded a Cosworth DFV as an American engine and would not have it .

Now had Mike got the Hesketh drive  at that time  he would I am sure easily been every bit as good as James Hunt turned out to be  at that point in time and history would have been very different .

To me the DFV is a English engine, designed and built there. About the only thing American would have been the money to fund it.

Which is exactly what Mike explained but he still got the sack.

Rod's latest  that we presented   to a delighted Gordon Spice yesterday at his talk and film show day here in East Herts  imortalising Le Mans 1988 when Gordon Won the C2 class at LM   he came 13th overall and clinched the C2 world championship that year  Sun Tan oil company Hawaiian Tropic  provided a backdrop.

Very cool, a friend raced an AK-93 here in IMSA Camel Lights in 1993. Told me then that Gordon is quite a guy.

Also, Thanks for reminding us of the Good Ol' Days, when grid girls were welcome. Yowza.
