    Great picture I haven't anything as exotic but I'd love some wall art of my childhood hero's cars.... well either of them but the net result is the same ... a Williams (miss proper racers like Nigel and Damon)

    I have had a specially commissioned scalextric car made of red 5 it's almost finished, it'll be added to the Indy car and '55' touring car I have .. does scalextric count as art? I don't think so but it's cool right?

    Excellent choice

    I have many memories of him teaching me mechanics,and going on test drives.
    This picture brought all those memories back!.

    As an aside, Proteus are still going (or have been reborn): http://www.proteuscars.co.uk

    However, what you're looking at is a DBR1. Tim was commissioned to paint this picture to celebrate Aston Martin's history at Le Mans.

    Is it an original, Andy?

    I have a print from a few years back and did discuss buying an original but never got round to it.

    No it's one of a # of 450 print, so not valuable, but I just like it.

    There were 2 others, I was tempted by as well, but SWMBO would have had my balls on a plate if I'd bought all 3.

    Looks like he mainly does the C Type now,in the beginning it was always the D Type.
    He moved south from Bolton around 89-90,so i havent seen him for some years now.
    Sorry i didnt even realise it was an Aston,it immediately took me back to the 80s.
    It must have been the BRG blinding me. lol
