So the uploader is full is it?

No wonder, look at all the crap in here. I reckon some of this wouldn't be missed. I feel partly responsible.  Embarrassed

Come on Andy, there is some classic motoring (and other) related stuff here.
It should be published.  It would be better than those crap 'trivia' books everyone gets from their auntie at Christmas.

I feel partly responsible.


And there I was thinking that this thread might have quietly died when what happens?  The immortal Commer kicks its pet owner into making another post.  I really don't know anymore, it's all too confusing.

Nah....bo***cks........roll on, long live the Commer  Grin

I have been enjoying this marvellous thread for weeks,  I just realised all the old pictures had timed out. The ultimate Commer/ Le Mans link that was discussed on page 10, the Ecurie Ecosse transporter  (were there more than one of those) was at Le Mans last year too I think. I am trying to attach a picture I took in the ferry queue at Le Havre on the monday night, with two nice cars on board. I think they were both Jags, but couldn't get close enough to look while trying not to be too nosy.

Doesn't look as if the attachment is possible but I am very new at this sort of stuff.

Maybe if I just post the url...

Indeed that is probably the ultimate link, but the other notable type of transport in that area was the Mercedes Silver Arrows transporter - a 195hp 6-cylinder truck, capable of over 170kph (106mph in real money) - what price a duel down the Mulsanne between that and the Commer........

23 pages in 2 months and just under 5 months until the pilgrimage.

How far will it go before we go to Le Mans??

With unusual racing transporters having featured with the Ecurie Ecosse Commer and the Mercedes, here's another conversion in the good old British way, that tranpsorted a 1930s Alfa Romeo Tipo 8C in the 40s and 50s
