LOL. I know a dirty job when I see it. And somehow, I can't seem to avoid them. Masochism? Insanity?

Yessir, you are correct, can't mistake that grille shape. Lord Howe's T59, I'm not sure who's at the wheel, looks tall enough for Nuvo, but he's not credited on any picture I found. Jean-Pierre Wimille also drove for Howe, figure looks too tall for Howe?

PS. CDH I also love the airborne Bug avatar from the birthplace of British Auto racing and avaition. Fantastic museum on site and a portion of that famous banking still exists!
Much appreciated Stevie, thanks for the help. New SF registrations lately show "How did you hear about SF" as Skip schools, literature and race weekends. Harsha, found this amazing early color version of the Bug pic, makes the driver a bit clearer


*** added orig shot....there is something very wrong with this pic, - helmet flying off from bump? And what is that black wiper - looking thing? Pic error? Pretty funny. File name howet59...tells it all

Jousting

*** Another pic added, can see that canvas cover on windscreen in both pics, makes it a bit clearer, lovely car
And finally, a more appropriate updated version...

should we start a new thread on this??

heh heh nice one, should've known you were up to something. But I'm not buying it. Next thing you'll be claiming you're Gandalf.

That's the sword they used to drive around with in their teeth in case someone tried to pull a Schumacher on them.

I like the first one, looks more like Gollum

perhaps we've gone on long enough? Although, to follow up on Stevie's praise of Brooklands, they have a great archive of historic photos online at: http://www.brooklandsarchives.com/index.htm I think I even found a pic of you there (no seriously, it looks just like your first chop, but they won't let me pull a big version, or else I don't know how to do it). Even have some prototypes from wayback that look like a design for the next Indycar. Stuff always seems to come around again, but it still amazes me how some engineers are very forward-thinking...

Re: Bugattis, Brooklands, etc

I dunno H, looks to me like an empty helmet, had it p-shop and enlarged and adjusted, think Lord Howe forgot to tighten his chin strap - buggered it

Here's the large version you posted

The Brooklands albums are great, need to explore them, wow

Re: Bugattis, Brooklands, etc

I learned how to drive stick on a 37A, I was like 11. My uncle had a few Bugs. Couple 35's, the 37a, a Atlantic 57 SC Coupe and a Tank of sorts. First gear was down, not up, I remember that. He kept saying "remember 4th is forward". I think the 35's are the most winning GP car ever, and still competitive today with cars of similar proportions. I have a "Bugatti Owners Club" Rule book framed at my house. I try and snap a shot of it.

Re: Bugattis, Brooklands, etc

Cool vid, Craiger. But do you have a "Director's Cut" or raw footage without the Bach tomfoolery? Wanna hear that motor, the shifts, throttle-off compression, all the good parts! The first couple of sec was only a tease.

Re: Bugattis, Brooklands, etc

Now that's way more fun than driving your super-vee on the interstate. Just flat out wonderful. Love it at 3:40 when he's trying to juggle steering with holding the camera and the car gets all wonky. Wonderful detail in the mechanicals and starting procedures. Those cars just look like a ball to drive. Always see a few at the LRP Vintage festival. Thanks Craige.

Not for that one, however.....Mista Harsha I did uncover a home video archive of vintage racing in the 80's. There happens to be some footage of my uncle and his 300s Maser, which if my memory serves correct you are a fan of. I shall see what I can do about extracting the video and posting it here
