Oliver Winterbottom tribute podcast *****

General Excel discussions. You may also post Eclat and Elite information here. If there is enough call I will set up new categories or even a new BB for them.

Oliver Winterbottom tribute podcast *****

Post by richardw »

Here is a fantastic podcast with Rob Borrett interviewing Mike Kimberley, Steve Cropley and James Elliott about Oliver's life and designs. Steve Cropley in particular makes some amazing remarks about the Elite - we're hoping to transcribe these. Well worth the time listening to the whole episode:

I thought this warranted it's own thread as I believe it is very significant that Oliver's cars are being talked of in such positive terms.

Cheers, Richard

Richard, thanks for the Posting.
Also a tribute to the Elite and to a lesser degree the Excel.
I also noticed a reference to Angus Marshall, another well earned tribute.

Dave the cog.

Was a good listen and quite informative. Well worth listening to the whole session.
I've put Ollie's book on my list to Santa.
What goes together.... Must come apart.
