Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

Indeed it was Mike I recall the evening well having organised the evening back in 2007 with Mr. Ken Warby to raise funds for the old boat. Mr. Smith doesn't do organisation you see which he readily admits :D As well as being late ( which is quite normal for Mr. Smith ) he rocks up with a boot full o...

Re: Bluebird K7

I wonder why the canopy is opaque? . Hadn't noticed that Jordan at quarter to one this am. Could it just be to do with transporting the boat as the boat had already had the cockpit canopy altered by this time from the original 55 set up. The blown canopy is depicted in the 239.07 m.p.h poster stood...

Re: Bluebird K7

Hi the boat is still in its 1957 format having returned from the unsuccessful attempts in the states on Canandaigua and Onandago lakes in New York State.

Re: John 'Futch' Futcher

Sorry to hear that Bill! At least he managed to complete his book so people can read his many exploits and they are not lost for all time. I will let paul know so the S.R.C can pay tribute in the next issue of Fast facts. He was part of the story even if it was at the end.

Re: Pic of the Day

Aye it was good to have a walk down to the end of the road for 5mins and get out of all that dust searching for that bit up in the rafters for Mr. Smith. Have to admit defeat on this occasion but the old loft space is once again looking good. Not to worry "I'll be back " :D As for the workshop bench...
