I WAS THERE !!
"Fangio and Hawthorn compete, in Maserati and Alfa Romeo, at Silverstone for the 1953 British grand Prix. Ascari won the race, Fangio took second place and Hawthorn was 5th." reads caption but in fact the race was run to Formula Two rules and Fangio was in a Maserati and Hawthorne in a Ferrari. I know because I was there.
I never saw the fabulous  supercharged Alfa Romeo 158’s that with 1.5 litre engines only managed to do just over a mile per gallon of petrol. Eat your heart out Al Gore.

Despite looking like a steam traction engine this Townsend Oil Tractor is powered by a twin cylinder oil engine.
Quote “A Townsend 30-60 Oil Tractor at Rollag, Minnesota, in 2006. The 2-cylinder, horizontal engine can be seen on top of the large steam boiler-like round radiator. ” “Townsend designed his new tractor with what he called a “boiler frame.” Looking for all the world like a steam traction engine, the large round “boiler” was actually the tractor’s frame, as well as the radiator containing the cooling water for the engine. Engine exhaust was piped through the radiator to exit through the “smokestack” at the front. The exhaust created a draft that drew air through “flues” in the “boiler,” thus cooling the water.”

The roads in Australia must be far smoother than here in the Pennines with no change of gradient.This1939 Lincoln Zephyr would not get past the junction of Morley  Lane with the A62, where 1 in 5 meets horizontal but would end up rocking on it’s running boards. That said, it is one of the most sleek and elegant motors I have yet seen and the colour is superb,
