Having grown up in Mosport's back yard, sportscar racing was my first real passion...well before I discovered the allure of young women. Over the years I have collected a few diecast models of cars that I found strikingly beautiful. Like this one....

Are there any other persons similarly afflicted with this hunter gatherer gene?

I've never really considered starting this hobby, because I know I'd buy more than is good for me. With the money I save I go see the originals. :wink:

But I do appreciate a good model like this one. :up:

Same here, though I do have some models a home (most F1, close to the source :D ) All that's missing is a digital camera.

That must have been a while ago Paddy, you're looking quite a bit slimmer there :D

I hope all you good people are not offended by my new avatar. :D

If you are, well tough. :twisted:

If Paddy can be a rebel on CA then surely I can be a rebel on DfH. :wink:

Now Paddy has the right idea. Thats a nice display he's got going. Any right minded male who is into motorsport should have a few models to look at in wonder from time to time.

Here's a recent release that features a fellow countryman. Can any of you bright people identify the pilots?

Paddy probably has this site bookmarked. The link below relates to one of my all time favourite drivers.

As for your Porsche 917, did you mean the guy who originally wore this suit?

We have a winner!!! Although il Cavallino isn't quite sure we'll give it to him. If you show up at Paddy's November piss up there's free beer in it for you.
