I've been a bit absent over the last week or so after losing my "big sis" to the dreaded C, but as I suspect you know, Bauble, I can usually be relied to comment whenever you feature one of my beloved Alfas - as in #261.......


But if we all commented on every post it would get a bit sycophantic, don't you think?



But please do keep on trawling your archives and educating us / giving people chance to show their erudition

Sorry to hear about your sister, Lancs. vey sad to lose someone close, I'll put in a good word for you both tonight.

NO I do not want a paean of praise, every time I post, an occasional acknowledgement that people are enjoying the content is quite enough, I do need a little encouragement, as it is time consuming to sort through archives, and post the pictures. There is no gain for me in showing the pictures, I'm not selling anything, so why do it?

So just for you.

There was something especially interesting in the 2005 to 2015 ish period of Historics that seems to have been eliminated somewhat in the current era.

Nice shots Baub.

As for the comments a few days back by "Barney", clearly the images presented should have been referenced and B&W but colourised shots from back in the day when cameras and the film they used were an entirely different proposition when compared to the modern era.

Thanks for #279, Bob - pity Silverstone gives such an "industrial" background - oh and for the avoidance its fairly likely that I hadn't just blasted past the 911......


And then you go and include both Imp (my other love) and Alfa in one group in #284 - though I have to say that the Alfa looks "over-wheeled"......

Probably "standard" sized wheels, Richard.

The body shell, however, may have been "reduced".

Was it because people were "having fun" instead of "being seen"?

Probably that Max. Also the variety of cars that seems to be absent these days - even at Goodwood.

That was probably part of the "having fun" factor.
