Re: Coniston - Spiritual Home?

Reading this thread & others on the forum I can't help but come to the conclusion that the much used phrase "Get their act together" actually means do exactly as Bill Smith wants or F&*%^ off. As I have said before I have supported the BBP since the beginning of the restoration but can't help feelin...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

When I posted my original question it was in totally good faith as I was concerned about some of the allegations / assertions made in the article, I didn't pass comment on whether I thought they were true or not.

Re: Pic of the Day

Does anyone know what happened to the original cradle? It was certainly still up at Pier Cottage in the mid 1980's. It was just outside the gate on the right hand side as you went in.

Re: Looking for opinions on an Autograph

I only asked because I thought it looked as dodgy as hell :lol:

The blueprints MUST still be available with the IWM or similar. There was also little detail on the build i...
