That it, Nutek?
I believe so, yes. I have a pile of them (about 200 or so images), but my notes are not complete.

Yup, that's it. I hadn't realised that cars were being built without spoilers as late as 1967.

Give that man a prize! I think the Marlboro-branded spoiler must be on the back of the car in front... a historic parade of some sort, Festival of Speed type occasion perhaps?

Yeah, as late as 1970 I think. Could be wrong.

It's probably either a McLaren MP4/4 or MP4/6, one of Senna's would be my guess. Honda usually trots one or other of them out for events such as that.

I bet Alonso wishes he had that one.

I have a crapload of old F1 pics but I guess they should go in the F1 thread... Then again, I don't want to crap that up with old images either with the new season about to start.

I think any F1 fan who likes McLaren would wish they had the MP4/4 again

IMO It was around the time that the manufacturers realised that there was more to grip than merely tyres and suspension that everything started to unravel.

The problem is what do you do next. Try and replace him? Part of the reason TG works is because everyone knows he is a racist, bigoted, old fossil.
