I love the argument that the two men on the left side of the picture are having. I assume he was saying something along the lines of “What the hell do you mean we only have 3 spare wheels?”
Mary Guthrie flew Hurricanes on transport missions during the second world war, although she never saw combat she was widely considered to be a highly capable pilot by all her knew her.
Not much to say about this, other than mention the fact that I now want to buy that car.
I can think of many uses for 4 Shelby Mustangs. Hell, I’d be quite happy driving around in that fantastic looking truck.
Hong Kong is still one of the most visually fascinating places in the world, funny how that Mercedes doesn’t look out of place at all.
There are some photographs that seem almost like they float above time. This is a great example.
The Vought F4U Corsair was an astonishing airplane, I never knew it was this versatile though.
Black and white photography is, in some respects, a lost art form. The move away from film to digital and the requisite fixed colour sensor has meant that true black and white photographs are a thing of the past, well perhaps they were till now.
Luigi Villoresi and Alberto Ascari are perhaps the 2 of the most famous Italian F1 drivers from the mid-20th century, it’s very rare to find a picture of them together despite the fact that they travelled the world racing in some of the first sanctioned Formula 1 races after WW2.
You may not have noticed this yet, but take a look at how low down the clip-ons are mounted on this old Norton cafe racer.
It isn’t widely known that Gilles Villeneuve started his motorsport career racing snowmobiles in his native Quebec. It’s hard to imagine a racing series further removed from Formula 1 than this but somehow he took his talent from these humble beginnings to win the US and Canadian Formula Atlantic championships in 1976.
Steve McQueen was lent an AC Cobra in 1963 by Carroll Shelby himself, it’s fairly clear he had a great time in the British/American Ferrari killer although I am surprised to see there’s still tread on the tires.
