    PC thrown a real wobbly. Got to wait now for 'Geeks on Wheels', Thursday…

    Owen passed away last year and he was a regular poster on the 'TradeMe' motoring message board, usually having a dig at any 'Morris Garages' car, including my own.

    Tech couldn't sort the issue so just taken the PC away. OS aggro. May be back in a week's time... Grrrr.


    Although I have back ups of the 50,000 pics, work on the more recent stuff - which is when they are filed, a bit trickier.

    Next PC will have the Operating System on a totally separate drive from the programmes and data, rather than a partitioned drive as at present. Thought I was being smart with the drive partitioned "C" for programmes, "F" for the data. Technology has moved on - again. Data will all be saved OK but very frustrating as I don't download emails onto the laptop. I can read and reply, but they are ony downloaded to the PC.


    May just have to watch some live streamed Goodwood - but not staying up through the night!

    A new season kicked off with Icebreaker. Not a 100% classic/historic meeting.

    Not in the programme... presuming also an 'International'. Watching them into the hairpin, it looked to be a bumpy ride for the karts!

    Ray,
    The go-karts have changed a bit since I first saw them compete in a field near Te Aroha in 1959.
    Note the designer of this US model in 1959.

    Red single seaters - but it took 20 minutes of internet searching to find out what one of them is, as once again, not in the programme, nor on the lists I have. I always have this problem with several classes of single seaters. Needless to say, it is usually the late entrants who have cars I can't readily identify! If I was looking to spend even a modest amount on sponsorship, (which I am not), it certainly wouldn't be on a driver who was so disorganised that they couldn't even get the car entered in time.

    Why don't all series post a list of their current drivers, cars and race numbers? Even the lap times only list the driver's name, rarely the car. Even though I am no longer tied to the ERC Series, Chris and I have tried to ensure that the website is virtually up to date with a list of entrants - past and present, with a photograph of mine where possible.

    A query. Nash/Austin Metropolitans. As I understand it this was car designed by Nash, built by Austin, using Austin engines.

    OK. So initially, left hand drive for the USA, so no problems. It's a Nash Metropolitan.

    Later, they did right hand drives for the UK, Austin Metropolitans.

    However, in NZ they later sold right hand drive but badged only Metropolitans.

    Filing photographs, I therefore file LHD, USA, Nash.

    But, do I just bite the bullet and file all RHD's as Austins? Not that it matters to anyone of course, or should I file them all as Austin's or all as Nash's?

    Given that looking at them, the only differences appear to be which side the steering wheel is located.

    Even our British badged cars may be made in Europe and Japanese cars built in England as were some Citroens years ago.

    Interesting to know what the main criteria is and how others see it.

    Thanks for that. In the UK, we only knew them as Austins - other than enthusiasts who knew a little of the history. I'll therefore file all those pics taken in NZ as Nash's and pics taken in the UK as Austins - even though all were built in the UK!

    And they are still the most distinctive styled car...i love these Metropols still and a worthy addition to any garage....just like the Bullet- nosed Studebaker
