The Anglia from behind.


A somewhat high rear end I thought.

A blast from a little further into the past.

Sebring 12 hours 1956.

The action really starts about 3 mins in and then there is a lot of sun and concrete but near the end is some coverage of the tighter part of the track and a few minutes that offers some night shots though of course there is not much to be seen from the technology of the day.

I noticed the drivers seemed to be mostly wearing helmets and a few even had overalls of sorts.

Longish tea break required.

Sadly I have no pictures of either of the 2 angle boxes I had. The first was more rust than anything, usual places around the headlights, bottom of front wings and doors. The second started off as a 105e and then I fitted a 1340 classic engine from a scrap yard, lowered the front and back but it was a job to stop it! Ended up with the same amount of tinworm as the first but good fun for a while! Needless to say my road driving habits have improved somewhat since those days 50 years ago

Well of course, cameras had not been invented when I first learned to drive, so no pictures I'm afraid.

Gordon, I failed my first test because I put the cart before the horse.

Don't tell me - it was a hand cart and you blocking the horse lane?

Enzo Ferrari always advocated the horse before the cart until he was proven outdated by technology
