GALPOT Weekly #18

Looking forward to going to Race Retro in a couple of weeks and restocking my library of photo's with new material despite the fact I have far from finished with all the photo's I took last year.

Armless Fun, Ford P100, Silverstone Classic

Last week started with a bit of Armless Fun in the form of a multiple Burn Out championship winning supercharged Ford P100 pick up.

MG TF, Castle Combe, C&SCAD

For Valentines Day GALPOT towers went romantic with a look at this two seater MG 'TF' sports car.

Ford Capri 2.8i, Brand Hatch

My school friend Sven's Ford Capri 2.8i, which gave me my first hands on experience in motorsport as part of the pit crew, was the subject of Wednesdays blog.

Chrysler 300L, Goodwood Revival

The Chrysler 300 letter series represented some exclusive muscle, on Thursday I looked at this Elwood Engel designed Chrysler 300L.

Ferrari T4, Silverstone

Jody Scheckter won the 1979 World Drivers Championship in 1979 and Gilles Villeneuve came second securing the Constructors Championship in the Ferrari 312 T4's I looked at on Friday.

Lotus 34, Indy 500, Ed Arnaudin

Jim Clark qualified on poll for the ill feted 1964 Indianapolis 500 but suffered tyre failure after just 47 laps, Parnelli Jones, who still owns this quad cam Lotus Ford 34 which I looked at yesterday, bought it and came in second at the Indy 500 in 1965.

Honda NSX, Piston Heads, BMW Factory

Today's blog is all about the game changing Honda NSX super car that raised the bar for future Ferrari and McLaren Super Cars in terms of handling, refinement, performance and price.

Coming up next week a '66 Chevrolet El Camino, and a Special K Convertible Terraplane with around 50,000 miles on the clock, don't miss all this and more at GALPOT !
