The old man came round and demanded a picture while I was cleaning the car. He was chatting about it all and how he signed off every stage personally and how he cocked up because he doesn't have a sin

At last!! - A parking space for fat blokes that like to BBQ.

He was on his way when this happened :lol:

I hate to see mice and rats in project cars,   Rats even more so, but other parts of the world have bigger problems !   But this little old fellow i kind of feel sorry for,  he is old and does not want to leave his home which he has lived in for a while by the looks of it  :(

Sir Stirling Moss in a lotus 18 during the1960 Monaco grand prix Bibs, you can buy that photo on ebay also  :thumbup:  

Wasn’t it also the first Lotus F1 win?

First win by a Lotus car although not a factory win as it was engaged by a private team (Walker Racing). Moss reiterated the win the following year with the type 18 before team lotus had their first ever factory win in the US Grand Prix.

Really enjoyed that film with the Lotus, Brundle and Newey. Listening to Newey it really brings home the legacy and pedigree of Lotus in racing. Would be great to have them back as a factory team in something. I'd shed a tear at that...

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Fantastic Video  Bibs,     From the days when race cars looked amazing and the drivers had a much bigger pair of nuts between their legs ,  not knocking todays drivers to much,  as they still do a great job,  but looking at the 48 with the massive 3.0 v8 lump hanging just behind their heads and a scantly thin body wrapped around them took brave men to race them compaired with todays racers . :)

That was a lovely watch, when was that made? What he said about coming down three gears into Tarzan with a Cosworth Hewland, and he's talking about today's F1 drivers missing out... what about the rest of us :baby:

Lovely Lotus 49 film. What a noise! Surprised that Rindt’s name wasn’t mentioned as (posthumous) world champion in one.

He also raced a 72 in 1970. It was the car he was in at Monza on the fateful day..

This picture was taken at Lotus back in 2011 when the new track was opened. Lots of famous faces where there, Nigel Mansell is even still in his car right under the Lotus roundel! Can anyone name all the cars, L-R?
