Monte Carlo Or Bust


Gail and I were back to work today after our break. What a shock in having to get up early and do a full days work, instead of taking it easy at home. It has also been a very grey and wet day, so there wasn't really anything worth photographing at lunchtime. So here is a shot of a model Formula One racing car that I got on Saturday from a charity shop for the grand price of £1. It is a Williams Renault design from 1992 and was driven by Nigel Mansell. If you click here, you can see the real thing. It's interesting to note that the advertising for Camel and Labatts are missing from the model. I'm not sure if that is because the advertising of beer and cigarettes is a no no these days, or that these companies would want paying for the use of their logos. Still it's a nice model and it also come in a little plastic case to keep it dust free.
