Although their shop/ flat was compulsorily purchased to make way for a ring road. Should have been a bypass.....

Thank you Bob, can I borrow the pic to answer a question on another (non-motorsport) forum? Credited of course.


Iain, pumps and especially glass globes are worth a lot of money these days, might not last long if left outside! When I think of how many we scrapped while modernising petrol stations in the '70s when we were turning every site into self service. I personally heaved more than one clock face pump onto the scrappie's lorry

When my brother and I ran a garage in the late 60s we had all new tanks and pumps installed, there were two glass globed ones and one hand cranked job that we smashed up and put it in an old 500 gallon tank along with the rest of the scrap. Hindsight wasn't invented then and as for the phone boxes there is still one outside of that garage today. I understand that the Yanks buy them for silly money and some are used as shower cubicles

Colin, the first picture is my own, and the second off the internet. You many use mine, no need to credit unless money changes hand.

I think that about three of that model were produced, and I certainly remember Peter Reece used to race on in period. I could probably do a bit more research if your friend was interested enough.

Cheers,

Bob.

Thanks Bob, the original query came from a forum dealing with old petrol stations. There's a certain irony here! The petrol pump enthusiasts wanted to know about the racing car and the racing enthusiasts only want to talk about the petrol pumps

Colin before our establishment was made into a garage it was a forge and we had to junk all sorts of stuff left over from the early 1900s. Amongst the "junk" was several of the old 2 gallon petrol cans with the brass caps. They all had 3/6d on them and I understand that was the price complete with petrol in them ? We also chucked away all the old enamel signs and countless artefacts that are now "collectors items", back then the only people that collected such stuff was the scrap man

Take care Bob when bringing your bottles to the chemist… After so many years on the tracks, this kind of material might be hazardous…

Cost of going Historic Racing still creeping up- Elan 26R replica built 2019, £175k, and another organiser charging big ‘membership’ fees, in this case £350 p.a.

Although quite a long film I didn't feel it dragged, and the cinematography was very impressive. AFAIK I had only my maternal grandfather involved in WW1 and he came home unscathed, but never talked about it, of course. My partner, being some 15 years older than me, had her father in the thick of it, long before she was born of course, and for her the seal of authenticity was right at the end when the lieutenant had a binocular case slung round his tunic - identical to the one her Dad had and which now resides in our cupboard.......
