    Smile Another one for the Petrol Heads from even earlier!

    Back in 1956 when Melbourne hosted the Olympic Games we had a Grand Prix at Albert Park.
    Well as a 19 year old Petrol Head I just had to go. I coughed up extra money to get into the pit area & took photos.
    Some of these are posted below.
