Formula Juniors, CSRG CC 2014 by SlimerJSpud
Formula Juniors, CSRG CC 2014
A fine collection of Formula Junior vintage race cars. Formula Junior only ran from 1958-1963, but spanned the transition from front engine, drum brakes to mid engine disk brakes. All of these cars are in the latter category. These are mostly Lotus and Cooper cars. Photographed at the Classic Sport Racing Group 2014 Charity Challenge, Sonoma Raceway, California.
Coventry Climax Fire Pump by SlimerJSpud
Coventry Climax Fire Pump
An original Coventry Climax Feather Weight "FW" (or FWP) fire pump. The company sold roughly 150,000 of these to the British Government in the years after WWII. The Feather Weight Automotive FWA version became the engine to have in automobile racing in the late 1950's. Lotus used them, among other builders. This one was photographed at Sonoma Raceway (then called Infineon) in 2009.

For comparison, see the real thing also in my gallery. Here is a photo of an Alfa Romeo 8C2300 1/8 scale model. Kit by Pocher. The model is based on a 1931 Monza racing 8C2300.

Alfa Romeo 8C2300 engine
Photographed at All Italian Day, Alameda, CA, Oct 13, 2013. An Alfa Romeo 8C2300 engine. Straight-eight DOHC 2.3L with supercharger. Even the manifolds are a work of art on these things! They were made from 1931-1935. I do not have the exact YOM for this car. The engine appears to be the original unit, with matching numbers. This is a nicely restored road car.

Dryad with tree
A Dryad is never far from her favorite tree. Talk about communing with nature! Image is wallpaper sized. V4 Daphni from Daz.
Been doing other things lately. Some pinups, some character tests. Projects in the real world take up time too! And now back to our regularly scheduled drivel...
