    I saw a bumper sticker on a Triumph 3A at a vintage race a while ago.
    It read: All of the parts falling off this car are of original British manufacture.
    But surely Lotus bolted their autos together better than that!

    Bracelet is on order. Rubber strap looks cool (I think, at least), but sweats like a horse. Plus I’m sort of all about bracelets now, after ages of only natos on my steel watches.

    My 1861 on its original replica NASA strap for today…wore it to a motorcycles & coffee event where I displayed my 1999 Manco mini-bike [with original papers] which I purchased new in 1999. NOTE: Mad Dog action figure sold separately.

    Yeppers…it’s my Pro-Tec skateboarding helmet. Interesting that you mention Super Dave [Osborne]…one of my skateboarding buddies [who is also a fellow former Navy rotorhead] calls me “Super Dave” because of that helmet. Although it’s somewhat similar to Super Dave’s stunt helmet…it’s more similar to Peter Fonda’s motorcycle helmet in the movie “Easy Rider”…and that’s why I purchased it…to be like Peter Fonda. :thumbsup:

    LATE ENTRY @Canuck regarding comparison of helmets:

    Super Dave’s stunt helmet…

    My experience has been very good.. nothing ever falling off, but it’s a modern (2005) Lotus, an Elise, a lightweight mid-engine that’s been quite reliable during 14 years of ownership.

    Vintage British cars are another story!!

    Exactly. One of the problems for me with full numerals also is that the gap between 11 and 12 is often notably shorter that between 12 and 1, which can look weird. I had the opportunity to hold a Patek Philippe Twenty-4 the other day and it is a very lovely watch but that difference in the gap between the numerals is a bit of a turn off. (Nothing that would keep me from buying the watch (for my wife) if I had the money though :D)
