    Ah - the joys of manual film cameras - managed a couple of double exposures - but I kinda like this one...

    And finally this one, straight out of the box. Last frame on spool...

    I like the way the "intro" to vid is. Area shot with equipment then a car coming toward camera at speed. Good teaser vid with cars and interviews, has me waiting for film release!

    Wonderful pix! Any more? Just thinking... ifn you could get some of the Jersey Shore Race of Gentlemen cars and some of the Pendine beach cars gathered at the same place (on either side of the Atlantic, no matter), you'd have the perfect chance to have a vintage revival of turn of the century "international" motor races, like speed trials at Daytona / Ormond beach or even a road course / rally - similar to the first "trophy" races like the Vanderbuilt cup.

    Awesome post. I felt like I had stepped back in time. Some of you British guys talk kinda funny, but that's ok, your cars are beautiful.
