I received from my daughter and family a nice hard back book ‘HOW TO BUILD A CAR’ by Adrian Newey.
I’m about a quarter way through it; a brilliant book.
One bit, during his time in Indy 500 with Newman/Haas Racing, reads: “We were having dinner with Paul Newman that night and there was a great picture (since lost) of Paul bouncing Charlotte (Adrian’s young daughter) on his knee.”

I took two of those off my engine recently. Mark Wilson is currently turning them into proper heads. :lol:

Putting the house back to normal after Christmas. Last year and the year before Christmas presents from my son Roger appeared, from behind the moved furniture :shock:. Both car related, the dog we call Piston was made from a Morris Minor crankshaft GT40 pistons and rods, moggie piston for his nose and timing chain for tail, clock self explanatory. He also made a tractor for a farmer friends 40th BD see below photos and link to his web site, he started his own business last year doing much more complicated things than car related art. https://www.triplevengineering.co.uk/
