Glad you like the snaps, not a lot of feed back considering the number of 'views' they attract.[/QUOTE]

I love the shots Baub, it's an education as I have no idea what most of the cars are but you shouldn't be surprised at the lack of feedback. I've been contributing to a club mag and asked the editor if he ever gets any feedback - " nothing at all in 5 years" yet when there was a hiccup because of covid everyone was on his case straight away. I'm afraid you'll have to be happy with knowing you're doing a great job. We know it too, we just don't say it![/QUOTE]

I know Colin, I just like to have a dig now and again, the number of times the topic is viewed tells me people like the pictures. I have not been to as many meetings as I used to when I was just lad of 70, so most of what I post is many years old,and reflects my personal preferences, any thing old, basically.

I saw my first car race in 1951, and it was on public roads, so I am not surprised you do not recognise many of the cars, I am mis-placed on a historic forum, - more pre-vintage really.

Mind you the original idea was for everyone to share their pictures, but having launched the thread I'm stuck with it. I am looking forward to hitting a half million views soon, so have to keep adding images. An ego is a burden sometimes.

Thanks for your kind remarks, much appreciated.

Bob aka Bauble.

Like Colin I'm amazed at the variety of cars you have photo'd over the years Bob and so pleased you are sharing them with us. I like the era of cars shown in post 4973 and love the last pic of the rear of no.6 - was it one of the 'Lancia' Ferraris?

Yes, indeed a Lancia, one of Tom Wheatcroft's favourite exhibits in his collection. Innovative, and sophisticated for it's day, but Lancia were having financial problems as I recall, and at the end of 1955 handed everything over to Ferrari. I am sure some 'Smarty Pants' will put me right, but that is more or les what happened.

I must admit that I am constantly surprised at how many people say they don't recognise a lot of the cars, but then I can hardly name anything made after 1959.
I have this vast collection of photos that have in most cases never seen the light of day, so I am happy to see them appreciated even by such an ungrateful mob on 'ere'

Ta.

Baub.

Very topical, Mike certainly put a smile on my grizzled old features, I bet Viva is miffed he did not come up with that one.

Mr. Bauble, Sir. Please excuse my non-affirmation of the wondrous presentation of your amazing shots. Please continue to post and believe we all admire the photographs even if we do not always confirm the same. Because I'm sure you would not like to be bombarded with compliments all day, every day. Or would you!!??!!

"Vanity, vanity, all is vanity"

I am happy you enjoy my offerings, Tim, I know from the viewing figures that people do look at the pictures, but I think it s mostly out of boredom. Anything to break up the monotony of their sad humdrum lives. After all that is the reason I post them in the first place.

"Vanity, vanity, they've all got it in for me" - oh wait, wrong quote

We do enjoy the pictures Bauble, without doubt you are the finest snapper Bob Bull Photography has on the team. Please continue, you are right, they bring pleasure to a damp day.
