goodwood overalls

PostPost by: RobCapper » Fri Aug 11, 2006 7:26 am

not strictly a lotus question, so please excuse me, but I figured if anyone would know, it would be someone here..

I'm off to the goodwood revival again this year -the highlight of my racing year - but am keen to get a couple of vintage-type white mechanics overalls. I'm having real trouble finding any - does anyone know where I could try? ebay isn't as productive as I'd hoped....

Try the Goodwood retail website http://www.goodwood.co.uk/shop/acatalog ... thing.html

Not cheap though!

An old fashioned hardware shop for a pair of white decorators overalls.

Not a lot of money, and look the part.

I have a pair of goodwood overalls in large size (the classic type) they are almost unused and to add to it have sterling moss's and some other old school german racing drivers signatures on them. I am willing to flog them for the right price as they currently reside in a box at the bottom of my cupboard, so are really going to waste. let me know if youre interested
