knowing that there are a few people on the list who like REAL cars, I have 
assembled this album from this year's Goodwood Revival...

Details are below (if you aren't interested...)

1933 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza - this one is also going to appear as my PAW. 
There is something very special about these pre-war Alfas and Maseratis
which I 
really like

1957 Aston Martin DBR2 driven by Jean-Marc Gounon. Started last on the grid 
(29th)....finished 3rd, in a stunning drive probably the besyt of the

GT40 Prototype (as in the original Ford proto and not the equally beautiful 
Lola) two views, because ;-) Among the greatest sports prototypes of all

imagine this in your rear-view mirrors!

1959 Maserati Tipo 61 "Birdcage" - specially for Arche!!. I don't think it's
same one though, Arche...

'62 Merlyn Ford. I thought that this image was so "sixties" that I had to
it. Car goes like the proverbial....!

JAP-engined Morgan Super Aero three-wheeler

The Pacey Hassan Special. Noise and emissions regs - 1930s style!!

Phil Hill's race-winning Alfa 3000CM, driven by his son Derek to win The
March Memorial Trophy

The Chaparaal 2F in which Phil Hill won the BOAC 500

The same as they were preparing to move it home. This time it doesn't have
wing on!!

BTW check out the background..that's an Aston "Project Car" behind; a brace
Listers and a Mclaren Chevvy (I think) next to it.

I don't know what this is (it's a Kieft or similar) but I just took it
because I 
liked it.

Hope that you've enjoyed them.
