GALPOT Weekly #21

Once again apologies for the late appearance of GALPOT Weekly #21 due to a few technical issues I have been experiencing on 'Gettin' a li'l psycho on tyres'.

Benz Patent Motor Car, Mercedes Benz World

Week 21 started with a trip to Mercedes Benz World where a replica of the 1886 Benz Patent Motor Car, generally recognised as the worlds first car, is currently on display.

MG B, Race Retro

On Tuesday I had a look at the MG B Roadster driven by Brad Picard and Al Pease to a 32nd place finish in the 1965 Sebring 12 Hours, the car now appears with a droop snoot nose designed by Syd Evener that was used at Le Mans on this cars sister DRX 255C at Le Mans in 1965.

Cadillac Sedan de Ville, Castle Combe, C&SCAD

In order to properly celebrate Dale Glebe's Birthday Americana Thursday temporarily moved to Wednesday when I had a look at this 1973 Cadillac Sedan de Ville.

Ford Sierra RS Cosworth, Fishguard, Wales

On Thursday I looked at the first incarnation of the homologated for competition version of the Salesmans Spaceship the Ford Sierra RS Cosworth.

Ferrari 126 C2, Brands Hatch

The Ferrari 126 C2 featured on Friday, should have been a World Championship Winning car for Gilles Villeneuve in 1982 sadly a couple of weeks after a disagreement with his team mate Didier Pironi Gilles met his fate in one, and some months later Didier also had a career ending accident in the same model. However Ferrari did salvage the World Manufacturers Championship with Dr Harvey Postlethwaites finest design.

Lotus Elan Coupé S/E

This Lotus Elan Coupé S/E ,above, featured on Saturday belongs to Bristol Pegasus Memebership Secretary Bob.

Mini's, Farnham

Sunday's story about the Mini Ridgeway Conversion came about thanks to Stephen White who originally posted the photo above on the 'I Love Farnham Surrey' facebook page.

Thanks for joining me on this GALPOT Weekly #21 edition of 'Gettin' a li'l psycho on tyres' I hope you'll have fun following the links above and that you will join me again at 'GALPOT' during the week ahead. Don't forget to come back now !
