And both the Chevy and Olds were successful stateside. For whatever reason the Scarabs seems to have more allure in the land of the Angles than that of the Rebels. Seems curious to me as the Scarab certainly paved the way for the massively loved Dan Gurney and his Eagle. At least in terms of US constructors. Dan obviously competed in one form or another for quite a while at the time of the Scarab, with BRM (remembering this off hand) guidance being massively influential.

OK - back into redrafting the Tales ready for final proof reading. About 20% through now - 2017 has to be the deadline.

They will retain all the original "language", we'll have to see what any potential publisher has to say.

Was it really November 2010 when I started "The Tales"  ::) .....................??

I've had a roller coaster journey during that time and enjoyed most of it - especially the recollection of the Tales. I've also made some good global pals along the way - thanx one and all.

Here's where we're at.

Despite MANY promises that I would get on with the "Book", I am now  finally focussing on completion. Still some time off, but the health issues of the past 3 years or so have slowed my ambition down a tad.

Current [ monthly ] tests show no further kidney decline, and even a little optimistic improvement.

After yet another computer attack, where ALL my documents were "kidnapped" and held to ransom, I have once more had to download [ one at a  time ] all the tales from the DTT site, and this time printed them off AND stored them on a separate external drive. ;) ;)

I'm anticipating revamp / redraft / proof reading should be completed by next Spring / Summer.

In the meantime I'll start searching for a suitable publisher. Then hopefully ready to be released before Christmas 2017  8)

Christmas sitrep.

Thanx to everyone for the continued interest / encouragement.

Just had the end of year health assessment - NO decline in condition, in fact stabilised.

I'm just catching up with some issues I had to sideline during the course of the year.

Clean slate for 2017, and back on the tales / book.

I'll take this opportunity to wish one and all a Happy Christmas and a healthy New Year.

Crazy,

Thanx for that info. - for some reason ( self confessed computer dummy ) I have not been able to retrieve all the Tales and other little anecdotes.

If I need any gaps filling, could you send me the missing Tales please ? I will keep on trying to download them all.

I have set February aside to begin to put all the Tales in order and I'm continuing to revamp and proofread them all.

I have set myself a deadline of the back end of 2017 for completion and hopefully - publication.  Health permitting of course.

Thanx to everyone for your continued support and encouragement.

Re-drafting and proofreading 50% done now and I'm spending FAR too much time reading my own stories !!!!  ::)

There's a couple of fleeting Tales floating around that might make it to a full blown Tale, but basically we're into "write it up time" now.

First health check of the year done and still on track for stabilised situation ............... and the sun's out today ! ;)
