Baubles Picture Parade.

I suspect the constant appearance of ancient pictures on the Tea Break can be irritating to those who would rather discuss auctions, etc. so thought I might start this thread where we can pursue our dreams uninterrupted.

I start proceedings with a small selection for the dedicated historian.

Please feel free to add your own pictures . as long as they are 1950's!!!! No sixties trash please

Quite the variety there Bob. Cheers. Shapes and sizes that I find most interesting/fascinating.

Good to see some of them still race.

Anything before 1950s?

Nice one Bob. Since all those cars have run with FISCAR at some point, I know them all, so I exclude myself from this 'competition'. However in response to Willmazz, none of them are pre 1950, and the latest one, surprisingly, is the fourth one (no 20) which I'm pretty certain did not hit the tracks until 1959.

Cheers for extra info.

I was responding in my pre 1950 comment if any picture of a pre 50 car could be included as Bob said only 1950s stuff.

I do like these challenges!
1st set of pictures, Lister Bristol, Nash Healey, Allard, Bristol Special Wingfield, Connaught & Fairthorpe Electron.

The second set are all Connaughts Atypes, the Syracuse car is a Btype, & the toothpaste tube a C type.

Back later with the last set I hope.

Be warned I have thousands of pictures, so you might not get much else done for a while;

Not a competition, just for a The last one might be worth a caption tho'.

Lets have a go at the 3rd set of pictures, these seem easier than the 50's sports cars.
Monzanapolis Lister Jaguar, Gordini 23S, Bugatti T73C, Delahaye 135, Keift Climax & Lotus 10.

Looks like the Sadler is in trouble in the last set.

Bob, I'm glad you are enjoying the pictures, it will be difficult to catch you out I suspect, but I might cause some head scratching.[ATTACH][/ATTACH]

I'd thought about posting some of my old pictures on here but now I've seen how pin sharp & well composed baub's are I might not bother!
Having said that, they're mostly so out of focus identifying them could still be a challenge!

Just love the Toothpaste tube Connaught.

Looks like the Sadler has collapsed suspension given the sparks flying but did it happen by itself or was he initially tagged.

Car 174 in the last set looks like a BMW 328 based special which I should know but escapes me for the moment.

Pretty sure there was a Dinky Toy version of the toothpaste tube Connaught.


The Sadler looks like it has a rear puncture. A fantastic sequence Bob!
