    Definitely the crossover DCOEs...

    They always look so good and they go well too.

    That's certainly not the engine in that car, then, nor should it be if there was any logic...

    The 221 came out in 1962 or 1963, it was a very much lighter engine and held a lot more promise. It...

    256 Ford?

    That cast magnesium monocoque chassis was first see, as I recall, at the'62 Italian GP. It may have been '63. De Tomaso had built the whole thing, including the 1.5 V8.

    It was a new rule for F1 that year...

    I'm not sure whether FJr mandated them in '60 or '61, but one or the other.

    I would suggest, Ken, that the factory had no regular rollover bar for these cars in 1962...

    I could, Ken, but there are many of them here and many more original...

    As can be seen with every pic of a Seven above, that cannot be an 'original factory roll bar'.

    Maybe that's a 26R... a Lightweight Elan?

    I was looking at the Sevens and there are those with wobbly webs and those with steel wheels. And the one behind the tow truck has both.

    Ken, that was great to find that...

    No, I never met him, nor heard of him except reading that he owned this car, which came to Australia later.

    I've decided to help Marc Schagen find pics of...

    Are there any pics of the G-Modified Lotus 23 of Homer Rader, Ken?

    I really doubt that...

    It had the Halibrand wheels and everything, it didn't look new either. I would like to know which one it is, actually, as there was only six of them built. I caught it on a...

    And what of this one?

    If the Cleveland is the raised-block 351, then its history (as I recall seeing mention at the time) began with engines for Dan Gurney to instal in his Lola T70 with the Gurney-Weslake heads.

    Those 23s don't have original wheels either!

    That's a high-spec Seven there...

    Wobbly alloy wheels.

    There was, apparently, no specific reason for the LHD car being purchased into Australia by the collector other than that he wanted a Lotus Cortina and that was the one he found...

    And later, I...

    Ken, I've been unable at this stage to contact the owner...

    I have ascertained a couple of things. It has a modified version of the head made for Strombergs (from Lotus Europa Twin Cams, possibly...

    There is, I'll have to dig it up...

    Bearing in mind that a very small number of LHD Lotus Cortinas were ever built.

    This one, however, which lives in Alice Springs (you don't get any more Australian than that!) is left hand drive:

    Nice concept and carried out very well. Quite the craftsman.

    'Young' Australians?

    Horst Kwech raced at Bathurst in 1958, obviously somewhere else earlier than that. You can't race at Bathurst without a full licence, you see.

    I think Moffat's first race...
