Welcome to GALPOT Weekly #63 a review of the last seven posts at "Gettin' a lil psycho on tyres" a blog about all things motoring. On Christmas Eve I looked at this Ford F-750 Super Duty XLT which features a F-350 Super Duty rear bed big enough for Santa to make his annual deliveries. Jeremy Hawkes MG K3 #3007 was the subject of Christmas Days blog, it was the first 1100cc /67 cui vehicle to lap Brooklands at 120 mph in 1934 with Ron Horton at the wheel and in 1937 Goldie Gardener drove it on a one way timed run at over 150 mph. John Surtees first Formula One car the Surtees Ford TS7 featured on Boxing Day. The TS7 was designed by Surtees, Sahab Ahmed and Peter Connew. Its best result was a win at the non championship 1970 Oulton Park Gold Cup, with Big John at the wheel. Thursdays post featured the non standard Ford Mustang Mach 1 notchback seen above. A celebrity race car featured on Ferrari Friday, this Ferrari 550 Maranello GTS has been driven by a host of rally and touring car champions and a couple of IRL drivers including NASCAR 'legend' Danica Patrick. Yesterdays post featured a couple of Lotus Ford 87's raced in the 1981 season after the twin chassis Lotus 88 was outlawed before ever being allowed to race. Todays post features this amazing Rolls Royce 40/50 which has spent 29 years serving as a fire engine in Sweden. I hope you have enjoyed catching up with the last seven posts at "Gettin' a li'l psycho on tyres" and that you will join me again daily during the week ahead. Wishing all GALPOT readers and contributors a Happy, psycho on tyres, New Year. Don't for get to come back now !
