    Shame it ^^^^ isn't about a current team. That would make for a good caption competition.

    You got some of these laying around? Thought about flogging them if you found them? I reckon they' d fetch a handy little sum on ebay, they' re collectors ' items.

    My wife and I were clearing the attic and have stumbled across boxes of memories, none of which we'll get rid of but there's a few small F1 items from when she and I used to get schmoozed by Camel cigs, Gauloises and others.

    Ahhh, heaven :)

    Still smoking; so no cycling for me...
    Never see anyone smoking Gaulious or Camel these days. Very distinctive aroma and taste with both; same with Sobrane: But they were closer to cat piss on both counts :)

    When I smoked I loved Camels and Winstons. I tried Gaulious but couldn't get on with them. I packed in almost 10 years ago and apart from the occasional (quality) Cigar to celebrate something or other, maybe 1 a year, I've never felt the need to go back to Cigs.

    Many moons ago when I was a kid I won a Marboro sportss bag in a motor racing quizz held during an Autosport exhibition.

    I wonder if I' d even be allowed to openly carry it in public these days if I still had it? From a strictly legal point of view robably not actually...

    Luckies or Camel.

    Well, it is all going black soon... Tobacco advertising showed the importance of censorship in creating great art; and fag ads were some of the best graphic art of the late 20th Century.

    But only a few months to go before the blank packaging takes over. May be a good thing for our health but the end of an era.

    Sorry, but I'm an unreformed smoker who knows it's time to stop. I'm also a closet romantic with an unhealthy streak of nostalgia in his veins.

    Bugger, I've smoked my way through a hundred brands around the world; guess it's time for some fresh air again :)

    If I recall correctly Hill crashed because the load changed on the high rear wing as it crested the rise on the track and it gave way.

    Because lucky strike means fine tobacco. I loved the unfiltered proper American ones, only needed to smoke a couple a day to totally ruin myself though!

    Quite correct. There were several other wrecks in the race caused by the high-mounted airfoils becoming unstable due to turbulence in traffic (some wing struts even broke). This was the race that precipitated the banning of the high strut-mounted wings.

    Indeed. And as a follow up to that, Chapman predicted this may be the case (regarding a ban on high wings) and as a precaution, turned up at the Monaco GP with an aerofoil styled engine cover. Deemed legal by the stewards, Chapman had once again got a step ahead of his rivals. On race day Hill took his 5th Monaco victory and the final win of his F1 career.

    F1 could sure use someone like Graham Hill now. And a Colin Chapman as well!

    Of course, Chapman wasn't infallible. The 49 was followed by this:

    For every 25,30,49,72,78 and 79 there was a 63, 76 and 80.

    He designed some great sports cars and some total camels.

    As he put it so well "if you are not winning, you are not trying"

    The Eagle (IMO the most beautiful F1 car ever) at the Ring in 1966. Notice off to the right.a sedan that crashed in one of the preliminary races and was never removed. Those were VERY different times!

    This F1 business can prove really strength-sapping at times...
