    very cool pics. I've always wanted to make it over there for Goodwood. I'm pretty heavy into European cars as well and there has always been a great showing of rare stuff.

    This is going to be hard for you guys to take, but in 2000 My engine in the 788 car set the F/FS record. "F" is 183 cid. I used a Nissan V6. The good news is Jack Costella who ownes and built the car has plenty of records in flathead classes in the same cae.

    That's one event that I REALLY REALLY want to go to...

    Is that the '38 standard that Enzo owned?

    The "Big Swing Set" is original art every year. Really neat stuff.

    WOW, The Blue Flame! I always loved the look of that streamliner and had an interesting encounter many years ago.
    I build amusement rides for a living, and was at a semi-boring carousel convention talking to a guy at the dinner table. He mentioned that as well as collecting carousel animals he built cars . "What kind of cars?" "Well,I helped build the Blue Flame.. ever heard of that?
    Hell, a boring evening turned out to be helluva encounter.

    Damn I love those '38 Standards! Gotta get me one.

    Cool stuff, except the salt scenes are just silly.
  20. The Blue Flame. Too bad the Plume didn't live long enough to attend. I miss that dude.

    The Oly Charger is one cool ride. I guess it ran Le Mans in 76. Nice to see old stock car live again. Oh and listen to this...

    Jack told me it would cost me $3000 to bring my roadster to sit with those cars. I don't know if Jack spent $3000 but that dosn't sound like him.

    Thanks for the link. I think the thing that intrigues me about Goodwood is they have ALL types of cars, not a cookie cutter type of gathering for sure.

    The great thing about Goodwood (well, one of many great things....) is the wide spectrum of cars, the 1st time I went (97 I seem to remember) they had everything from an early 1800's steam powered wagon to the current F1 cars, with everything in between...

    The crowd is a wild mix too, 'car guys' to multi millionaire types who are only there as its part of "The Season" :rolleyes:

    But well worth a trip to if you find yourself in the UK at the right time.
