Breaking news is that it's not out the doors and will be staying for stage 2 ......Paint will wait whilst we plumb it all up for new lump .So ... all new lines for fuel and brakes + main water pipes etc and get the underside and subframes treated .
Looms to go back in,ish,whilst we work out what's to do to make it work lhd ....If only we had a LHD car we could take apart and use as a donor :thinking

Movie trivia time but who played the Nazi on the motorcycle who Steve McQueen steals the bike from? (And also plays one of the Nazis chasing him later on)

I might be wrong but I think it was Chesterfield based comedian and Ostrich impersonator Bernie Clifton, who was recommended to the producers by McQueen himself, after visiting Bernies joke shop in Market Place, Chesterfield, to buy a plastic dog poo to leave in co star Charles Bronsons trailer.( hence why he was called Cool Hand Joke )

So impressed by Bernies 'Big Chicken' ( as Steve called it) riding, he replaced the original rider Duncan Norvelle, with Clifton.

Or perhaps it was McQueen riding the bikes on both occasions..........I forget.

I would have loved it to have been Bernie Clifton, or indeed Rod Hull.

But it was, of course, your second answer of Steve McQueen. Clever editing and the fact that Mr McQueen liked to ride all the bikes if he could.

Well done. Just trying to lighten the mood after all the Hairy comments.

Not only was Steve McQueen a great bike rider. Competing in fhe international six day trial & many other events. He was a great driver. This is my favourite car chase. Love the Mustang.
