The 70s called, they want their motorhome back

On the way home from work one day last week, I passed a GMC Eleganza II on the highway that appeared to be in very good shape.img_1454-m

 

Even Hot Wheels thought they were coolgmc-eleganza-ii-motorhome-06

Who would have guessed it could also be used as an urban assault vehicle?  Well it was and that’s a fact Jack!627373_1

Heads-up for hydrocarbon heritage

Castrol racing livery ranks in my top favorite racing liveries of all time.  The old Gulf blue and orange is my number 1 with the others shuffling up and down as the mood hits me.  The Marlboro Ferraris, the John Player Specials, The Ramchargers, The Blue Max, the Hot Wheels Snake and Mongoose…OK I’ll shuffle off and be old now….


BP-Castrol’s return to Formula 1 as a partner to McLaren-Honda has been announced. This news has got the F1 community rather excited – let’s face it, any new sponsor announcement is a novelty in F1 these days – but it’s perfectly simple and logical step to have taken.Castrol is arguably the most prolific partner to motor manufacturers in competition, attached to Ford in GT racing, V8 Supercars and the World Rally Championship; Volkswagen Group in the World Endurance Championship, World Rally Championship*, World Rallycross Championship, German Touring Car Championship and European Rally Championship; Volvo in the World and Swedish Touring Car Championships and Kia in Global Rallycross.
