The 24th Goodwood Revival

The 24th Goodwood Revival event was a super sunny affair over three days.

This pic was taken early morning outside Bonhams auction rooms adjacent to the famous Goodwood racing circuit. There were plenty of amazing classic cars on display representing prestigious marques such as Bentley, Aston Martin, Jaguar and Porsche.

One of the Lots even included a Porsche tractor- now that’s a new take on fast food!

1965 Jaguar MKII 3.8 Litre Saloon

Parked next to the 1965 Jaguar MKII 3.8 Litre Saloon in the foreground, is a fine example of a 1967 Citroen DS19 Prestige sporting the French tricolour on the bonnet.

 Maybe the French ambassador couldn’t find a space in the main car park!

 Amazing Automobilia Goodwood Revival

Die-cast metal models are always popular. This is 1:8 scale reproduction model of the 1959 Ferrari 246 Formula 1 car that won the French Grand Prix that same year with British racing driver Tony Brooks at the wheel.

Racing Legend Tazio Nuvolari

Mark from Jim Dooley Living Pictures bumped into one of his all time heroes - Italian motor racing legend Tazio Nuvolari.

During his illustrious career, Tazio raced for amongst others, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Ferrari and Auto Union (Audi). He was a key inspiration for Britain’s first Formula 1 World Champion Mike Hawthorn, who won the title in 1958. Tazio was keen to congratulate Mark & Jim after the successful auction of their lenticular Living Picture which featured an animated Avro Lancaster bomber flying over Beachy Head.
The sale at Bonhams raised £5,000 which will help fund the 617 Squadron Association Stained Glass Window Appeal for Scampton Church.

Despite the language barrier and his 40 a day habit, Tazio looked in remarkably good health for 129!

More Amazing Automobilia 

The automobilia section at Bonhams not only included our animated Living Picture of a Lancaster bomber flying over Beachy Head, but also an array of collectibles, such as posters and paintings, luggage, time pieces, die-cast metal models and an assortment of original car parts.

Hollywood legend Steve McQueen is depicted in the foreground wearing a Tag Heuer wristwatch in the iconic pose from the 1968 film Bullitt. This was an original artwork on canvas
