The trick is knowing where the photographers sit, so they can get a good shot of you through the screen.

Rather enjoying the pictures being posted on this thread. I'm developing a nostalgia I can't actually claim!

You had a ride in 660XYB not so long ago, doesn't that qualify you?

Those Sabre 4 pictures are good. And can we assume the car was taxed for 12 months, expiring in 1964, so a 1963 modification?
As you say, what racing history can be established? I don't know where to look, but I'd guess the archivist side of Dave would know.

I have found some information on Argyle Motors racing history, in a 1964 issue of Reliant Review it mentions the following "From the north comes news of the Argyle Sabre team, led by Graham Austin. They took part in events at Oulton Park and Aintree and also in the hill climb at Loton Park. Formed earlier this year, the team is sponsored by Argyle Motors of Birkenhead, following a suggestion by Sabre enthusiast Mr J M Entwhistle. His son, Dr Ian Entwhistle will probably drive some of the entries in future events,"
If I find any more info I will post on this thread but maybe someone else has more information? :D
