The POWDER BLUE CLUB
David Thomson - ACT - 1960 TR3A
The car was first registered in Vic (HGD167) on 7/10/60 with engine no. TS77232E. It was garaged close to David when he was at school and was the first car he travelled in at over 100 mph - on the back straight of the Albert Park circuit. David bought the car at Queanbeyan in 1972 on his son's birthday weekend. It had previously been raced around the Canberra area.
" The pic above was taken at the All British Day in Canberra 2007. I am quite attatched to it having owned it (then) for 35 years. It lived up the street from me in Parhan Melbourne when I was in my late teens. The young owner took me for a spin around what is now the Albert Park F1 track and we did the "Imperial Ton" down the back straight. Very impressed needless to say. The blue car, as I call it, goes better than ever today with modern improvements such as Terry Goodall's rack and pinion steering."
