Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

Following on from an earlier post, these are a couple of photographs of the Beloved’s innards.  The weather has been dire these last few days so anything that keeps me occupied inside is welcome:

Continuing broadly along the same theme, the movie Rush has just been released in the UK, the story of the 1976 F1 Championship fought out between James Hunt and Niki Lauda. There was a time when getting ‘inside the ropes’ at F1 was open to everyone prepared to fork out a few shillings for a paddock pass. This provided the opportunity to photograph cars and drivers ‘up close and personal’, limited only by my ability to afford the necessary rolls of Tri-X Pan. This is Niki Lauda as I prefer to remember him, before the ravages of time and fire took hold – still a young lad finding his way:

    Just up Graham’s street, so I’m doing the liking for him!

    He had a fair old overbite, didn’t he?

    Hadn’t thought about the inside of a car, but someone like you would, of course 🙂

    The inside of a car is very original and I must say the car does look quite classy!

    I don’t remember Niki Lauda like that but it’s nice to see. 🙂

      And at least he survived. The photo was taken at the 1972 British GP – a sobering statistic – out of 26 starters 12 of them are no longer with us and only 3 of those died from natural causes.
