    A Messerschmitt was on the cover of Motorsport in 1959.

    The caption read:If it were supercharged we could make the pun about blowing bubbles. But it isn't, so we must be content to say it is K. Piper's Messerschmitt which won the National Cat's Eyes Rally.

    2016 - This was part of the Goodwood tribute to remembering 50 years since England last won the football (soccer) World Cup, beating Germany in the final. I remember it well...

    Needless to say, these last few posts are being dug out of the German section of my library!

    Ray,
    I can remember events from 50 years ago but I can't remember if I have taken my nighttime medication just 50 minutes beforehand !
    Is there a cure or just be grateful for what I do remember ?

    Agree Ken! I'm only on two pills at the moment, one with food and one at bedtime. Keep forgetting the one with food! Wish this knockdown would soon finish as they are only temporary until the surgeon re-opens for business and hopefully does a more permanent fix. Hair is getting to Bernie E's lengths...

    Memory is somewhat erratic these days, but having kept a full page diary from 1964-1969, 1990 to date, reading the 1965 diary is more about girls I was rather fond of and ongoing hassles with my first motorised transport - an LE Velocette. Reading them now, is a magical memory refresher though.

    Currently trying to unravel the Green family ancestral history. Jeez, the number of times Jonathan & John Green's who had sons also named John & Jonathan even in a small area of Norfolk, and the number of infant deaths, is quite staggering. digging around 1700 to 1730 at the moment.

    Just glad to be alive these days and lucky enough to have lived through what many will see as the golden years of motorsport.

    Ray,
    The closest I got to Norfolk was driving up to Hethel to be interviewed for a position at Team Lotus by Peter Warr in 1973 and another trip to a meet at Snetterton later that year. Was I close to where you were and the girls you were fond of ?

    BTW; At the moment I am doing pre-op preparations to have my complete L. knee replaced next week as elective surgeries are starting up again around here.
    My wife is a bit hesitant but I just want to at least be able to walk out to get the paper in the morning once again.
    Ken.

    Ken, you must be aware of the saying that Nottingham had a reputation for the prettiest girls? I never lived in Norfolk, but have been around the Lotus factory, twice. Best of luck with the knee. Ancestors seem to have come from not too far from Lotus.

    Ray,
    All the best with your medical issues.

    Please forgive my input here regarding the Mick Hill / Trojan T 102 VW connection.

    "A new monster car based on an old shape appeared from the Hill stable for 1976 with the creation of a VW Beetle like no other. Based on a F5000 Trojan T102 and powered by the 530 bhp Smith-Chevrolet V8 from the March, rebuilt by Hill.

    Its freakish body and overall statement caused a huge amount of interest. It took Hill back in Super Saloons for the next 2 seasons. It took a while for Hill to make it a race winner but he did, helped by sponsorship from track rival and friend Tony Hazelwood's Templar Tillers company. At the end of 1977 he sold the creature to Doug Niven and the car continued to be a winner with a remarkable 47 wins, before going onto Jeff Wilson."

    Mick Hill was very much a local hero, and first came to prominence with a Jaguar powered Anglia that initially he purchased, but then rebuilt.

    The list of car's he built and raced was most impressive - and he was a telephone engineer, not an automotive engineer, by profession.

    He passed away aged 70 in 2014.

    Back to about 1972 - the local garage three doors away often had something exotic outside, to encourage people to stop and look through the second-hand cars. I have previously published a couple of others, including a Gordon Keeble and a Lamborghini Muira.

    There was a time when it was the tyres that filled the wheel arches, rather than wheels! Sadly, this car came to grief at the exit to Madgwick. That is two of these cars cars that have had crunches at Goodwood.

    Always had a soft spot for Iso's and Bizzarinis.

    2014 - In some places, the lighting is far from ideal, which is a shame, as a compact camera does have some limitations. This makes the National Motor Museum in some places, more like a warehouse than a display area.

    The Haynes museum at Sparkford. One of my favourite places to visit. I seem to spend more time there on repeat visits than at the Heritage Museum at Gaydon.

    Perhaps the most feared Ferrari in all of Italy ! A 1962 Ferrari 250 GTE 2+2 Polizia.
    Here is your chance folks to purchase a famous Italian vehicle.

    Back to the Ferraris today. Hope that doesn't upset anyone, but whilst trawling through pics of non-British road cars taken overseas, over the years, rather a lot of them.
