Great work.....my bedroom walls where covered in pictures of ray and geoffs work
HHMMMMMM, FUNNY YOU SHOULD SAY THAT, SCANNED THESE IN THE OTHER NIGHT, ITS MY BEDROOM FROM ABOUT 1982 ISH...



I EVENTUALLY COVERED EVERYTHING, WARDROBES, DOORS THE LOT, YOU LITERALLY COULD NOT SEE ANY WALL OR WARDROBE ETC! & MUCH OF THE WALLS GOT COVERED IN STICKY BACK PLASTIC, NOT ALL OF IT THOUGH AS IT WAS EXPENSIVE FOR ME AT THE TIME!


THATS MY WARDROBE BEHIND THE DIMPLEX RADIATOR, BEHIND THE CB, & IF YOU LOOK BELOW THE TV YOU CAN SEE THE PICTURES WENT RIGHT ALONG UNDER IT ON THE 2" BIT OF WOOD, JUST BELOW THAT THE DRAWER WAS COVERED IN VELVET!!, YOU CAN ALSO SEE THE RAY BENNIS TR7 (IN ITS 3RD GUISE) CENTRESPREAD UNDER THE CB ON THE TABLE, THIS WAS LAMINATED....


& MY BROTHERS ROOM & GUITARS...



THERE WAS OF COURSE MANY MURALS AMONST THEM!!

NOW HOW MANY CARS DO YOU RECOGNISE!!........:smoke:

NOW THEN RAY IF YOU ARE OUT THERE, EXCELLENT PICS OF THE FRENCH CONNECTION, NOW I AM A LITTLE CONFUSED, FOUND THIS CLIP EARLIER IN STREET MACHINE SEPT 99, WHICH I MUST ADMIT I HAD FORGOT ABOUT,



PRESUMABLY THIS VERSION 1 DID GET TAKEN BACK TO STOCK THEN & ANOTHER ONE WAS DONE??, I REMEMBER SEEING FRENCH CONNECTION AT A BRAINTREE SHOW (TOWERLANDS MUSTANG SHOW) IN ABOUT 2002, SO WOULD THIS HAVE BEEN VERSION 2?, DID YOU REALLY DO THE SAME MURALS EXACTLY THE SAME TWICE, DO YOU HAVE ANY VERSION 1 AND VERSION 2 PICS OF THE MURALS YOU COULD POST SIDE BY SIDE?, WHICHEVER ONE I SAW IT LOOKED DAMN FINE...

I ALSO REMEMBER BULLIT WAS THERE, THIS WAS APPARENTLY ALSO A SECOND RECREATION, WHATS THE STORY ON THAT ONE, THINK THAT WAS A MUMFY JOB??

WHILST WE ARE ON THE SUBJECT WHO MURALLED THIS ONE...



IT IS OF COURSE VAMPIRELLA THE HEARTBREAKER, WONDER WHAT HAPPENED TO IT?.....:smoke:

Here's a scan of a page that adorned my bedroom wall back in the late '70s, it was superb art work on both of these.

Yes your right, Ian Budd has restored French conection and re created the Bullit mustang with the blessing of Ray, He also saved the 'badger' Rolls Royce. I just wish he would finish my Bedford [just joking Ian]........ Dave.
