That last pic is Doug Whiteford's garage, and looks like his Talbot-Lago T26C monoposto in the foreground (which he took to 8th place in the 1956 AGP).

Doug won the AGP in 1950 (Eldred Norman's Double Eight entered but DNF), 1952 (Eldred's Maserati entered but DNF) and 1953 (Eldred didn't race but McKinnon took Eldred's Maserati to 15th place).

Cheers,
Harv (appreciator of old race vehicles)

Nice pic Wayne. Cool FE van.

Here's a cracker I just came across on FB, courtesy of Simon Barnfield.

Goodall's Garage, Princes Highway Terang in 1959.

Unfortunately the billboard is not there today.  Wink

Have a look at the way the rear springs have been shackled to lower/stiffen the rear of the car up. This must have been common practice? Lots or rust in the rear floor of that sedan.

What a great action shot, captures the moment.

VERY common practice by low-budget (read poor) racers was to just heat the rear springs with oxy to lower the car.
Also common was to take a few spring leaves out.
The softer springs helped keep both rear wheels on the ground as well, with axle tramp being a rare problem.
It was also common to heat the front springs or cut part of the coils out.
Usually we cut more out of the left, sometimes leaving the right side whole.
Very scientific, hey?

Hi All ... Remove this if off topic ( back of FE / FC only) ..but It just gos to show how different life was when our cars were young. Here we have, at Bendego a tramways truck and crew working on the tram line .....proberly welding .... using the tramway overhead, 600 V DC for power. How different life was in 1957 to 1959.    Who would had thought so many of our FEs &  FCs would still be running around well in to the 2000s.

Back to the 224s roll over photo, the motor appears to have broken off its mounts, judging by the gear box to tail shaft angle anyway (we have to chain our engine mounts these days for that reason) and are those rear floor pans rusted out??? What year was that photo taken?
