Re: Le Mans 66 film

Several technical inaccuracies (fiat didn’t buy into Ferrari until ‘69,) and the whole British connection was swept under the carpet somewhat (we designed and built the bloody thing, Shelby merely developed it) but still a great film. Watch it with an open mind and enjoy ( in the same way you’d wat...

Crusty TV

In case you hadn't seen this, the concept is basically 2 men-in-a-car rather like 3 men in a boat.
Its quite amusing.

Not a sniff of an AC, but you might like the automotive nostalgia,,,,,,
