Hey Dare, good find.  :good:  - My ears will be ringing for the rest of the day now.  :P

About the only similarity to todays F1 cars is the feather weight seat.

Hey Wizzo nice vid.  :good:

Just who did you persuade to make your 7 look good round Goodwood?  ;) :D :DD

The only thing that resembled me was the fat Michelin man at the end!

When I bought my Caterham 620 it was described as a 1960's F1 car for the road. It's the closest I'll ever get to driving the real thing...and I love it!

Good stuff, Dare & Wizzo!  :good:  Those were the days when fans could recognize a car by it's sound long before it cam into view.

The Honda RA300 was a Lola T-120 with a Honda engine. Honda's original car for the 1967 season, the RA273, was grossly overweight. Honda driver John Surtees worked with his friend Eric Braodley of Lola to modify the Lola T-90 Indy car for F1. The RA300 quickly picked up the nickname "Hondola."

It debuted at Monza in 1967 & won it's first race. Jim Clark's Lotus ran out of gas on the last lap & Surtees passed on by for the victory. Oddly, that winning last lap in it's first race was the only lap the car ever led in it's entire F1 career.

I went to the Long Beach races in the early 80's. Three teams had V12s; Ligier had the Talbot, Alfa and Ferrari had their own. What I found interesting was they all had their own distinctive sound. You could identify each long before they actually appeared.
