Brabham Official Trailer

Can't wait for this.

Favourite 3-wheelers No.54

B9/001 - The tub now repaired and strengthened.

And the carpet fitted. Marine carpet which looks pretty good don't you think? The lips are covered in padded vinyl. That looks good too.

I'd have one.

Other 50 year anniversaries.

Birdwood homecoming.

Loaded and ready to go.
Just as well he's fitted the new seat.

Bat Boat.

Made from a Purvis Eureka.
Apparently it started life as a hovercraft. Anyway, it didn't make a bad boat but it has now been left in the open for so long it is beyond redemption.

Not your ordinary Mini No.10

Hover Mini.
Personally I would prefer the Bolwell hovercraft which you rode like a horse (making sure not to wear your spurs).


Unsubstantiated but Bill usually knows what he's talking about.

The new gear shift.

Mechanism and linkages - simpler, less complicated and more efficient.

My new petrol tank.

Taking shape.
Not as high as an original one but easier to get in and out.

The new starting gates.

Not long to go now.

In memory.

trying on a side pod.

Ross and the Westfield.

Loving it at The Bend.
1600 cc vs 5000 cc. Lining up with a Mustang.
Left it for dead.

Not your ordinary Mini No.9

Still envious of this bloke.

Pop-top campers.

Nothing new.

Raymond Motors, Brisbane, about 1980.

OK Mark Philip Cleaves, which one is this?

R.I.P. Kenny.

Just a few pictures to reminisce by :-

Now doesn't this ring a bell?

The so-called Gippsland "barn find" of this early Mk.7. Was it ever lost?
