1. The six-wheeler was such an awesome car...

..Man I can't believe how long ago that was....Never met James Hunt but I did get to meet Niki Lauda at a test at Brands Hatch when the Brabham team were on the way down to Monaco for the GP...There can't have been more than 30 or forty people that knew that they were going to be there that day...it was AWESOME!!

3. Yes I did. I went with a friend of mine from school...

..(I was 16 at the time) and he took some shots...I'd have to dig around and see if I can find them...he was a big John Watson fan and was thrilled when I took a picture of him standing next to his hero...

4. Should be very good

It was a much simpler time - look at the team haulers. I'm just hoping that it's a better portrayal of Lauda and Hunt than "Days of Thunder"s portrayal of Tim Richmond and Harry Hyde. That turned 2 complex & unique individuals into cartoons.
Hollywood should consider a Jan Opperman biopic - Johnny Depp could star. A great quote, best as I can remember :"I went over to Bogar's shop to talk about taking his ride. I was a hippie from California, with beads and a peace sign, so I asked Hentzelman (Bogar's mechanic) "What's your philosiphy of racin'?" He spit some tobacco juice in the corner, thought a minute, and said "Piss runs downhill.."
I knew right then, we was gonna be fast!"
I'll post a video of Opp in it's own thread.

5. a Tazio Nuvolari movie would be good, too

or something else from the early era, like with the Chevrolet brothers

6. Nuvolari would be awesome!

Not driven to win - more like posessed! In my idle moments, I wonder what he would have been like in a sprint car - it certainly would have suited his driving style.
