Bowdens Own - Sneak Preview
Well I met this scruffy looking bloke at the FPV opening day and went upto him as his display was sitting right next the the FF stand -Chris Bowden as it happened to be, many FF's should know about the Bowdens name.
To tell you the truth, carnt remeber what was he had there as I wasnt feeling to well, self induced...
Most of you may know that I actually bid at the auction as I thought it a good cause and good oportunity to see a legends collection, and take some snaps for ff too.
Chris saw that I had bid as high as $600 at the auction for the tour of the Bodwens camp and we got talking about my panned trip to Coolum later in April.
As Chris lives in Coolum and much arm twisting and promises of entertainment at the Coolum Hotel, of which my brother in law manages, Chris said "no big deal; I'll pick you up on the way to work one day and you can mooch around our property for a day. BUT.... As we are so security conscious, you are not allowed to video and only limited photos can be taken".
Must remeber to bring a bucket... cant be making a mess with drool everywhere.
Not to leave you guys out of the picture, would would any FF'ers like to see shots of the cars listed below, if so which ones? I can only post a max of 10 shots.
The Bowden's don't mind as they are in the shadows of ff, Chris even banged together the list to help me out.
