Citröen 2CV (1950)
You can keep your women in short bikinis paid for the afternoon to stand next to a muscle-car. I’ll fall in love with these every single living second I breathe.
Oulton Park, 1961.
Stirling Moss drives a piece of history — the Ferguson P99, the first of the four-wheel drive cars in Formula 1.

Psst — did I ever tell you to hit the fan button for GOV at Facebook? Go do it!
Celebrating his victory at the 500 miles of Indianapolis.
You know what, this is so much more than your regular celebration capture. What this is, is a way of life, a moral lesson, both for you and me.
Bette Hill is celebrating her husband’s victory on their backyard. Meanwhile, Graham and a young Damon hill are pushing Jim Clark in a tiny tractor, enough to make them seem like they’re having the time of their lives. What’s really interesting to know is that Clark and Hill weren’t even Lotus teammates this year, that didn’t happen until what, 67?
Graham Hill’s good mood & friendship values must have been something worth knowing. A great driver, a great friend, a great father.
When I wonder why I’m stuck in an era I haven’t even lived on, this is why.

Ford Capri RS2600,
At the Tour de France, 1971.
MG A Roadster (1955)
British heart in italian red. You can’t find a single fault with this MGA.
It is just not possible. Not because it doesn’t have them, but simply because you wouldn’t even dare to begin searching for them. You’d have to be a complete heartless fool.
BMW 507 (1955)
A timeless lesson in elegant purity.
The 507 was styled by Albrecht Goertz, the same lad who was later responsible for the Datsun 240Z.
