Girling Foss testing the prototype open-wheeled version of the Wi96. Glad they dumped that awful grill.

Raymond Mays in R4D before the War. The front suspension, by torsion bars, was designed by Prof Porsche (patented in 1931), and is very similar to the arrangement used on all the Auto-Union GP cars.

Those are the new 'HARD' compound Firestones I presume? ;)

Obviously an Indy car project, but which one please?

Can-am, not Indy.

It was the first AVS Shadow - backer Don Nichols standing, designer Trevor Harris lying down.

I wondered the logic of cranking the Chevy over so one of the banks was vertical. But then I figured that logic was the LAST thing on their minds building it anyway. :)

The Shadow was interesting, but not the first CanAm to consider that....Hall originally built the Chaparral 2H to be a coupe with a very similar lay-down driving position.
