Size:  233.8 KBI really like this thread Lars. You keep posting photos, stories, articles, and things many have never seen. Just like your Super Swede thread, you are putting out some very good history. You have gotten to the point where you are drawing out information from many of your friends that want to add to what you have started. I would like to add this one (Many more never seen) to this thread about Renato Molinari. Lots and lots of photos of Molinari, and no smile. Everyone knows that. You had one where there was a little bit of a smile. What about this one? I actually developed this one in my darkroom with chemicals in 1978 for part of the story that appeared in Powerboat covering the 1978 OE World Championships. I didn't submit this photo however, but I kept it. It is in a collection I have been keeping on boat racers waiting and anticipation before the gun fires. I have a number of them, and when I think I have enough I will post them on BRF. Until then....Here is an advance preview for your thread here Lars. Molinari waiting.

    ADD: I am sorry that there are four pictures in a row of the same thing. When I first started posting pictures on BRF I could see when the pictures were downloaded. I'm not used to this dragging photos, checking the boxes, etc. I did each thing to confirm that the photos were loaded, and when I could not....I just punched the DONE button. When the post came up on BRF...all the photos were there. I will figure it out eventually, but I wonder how many out there cannot. And now I will try to figure out if I can delete the other three photos.

    ADD: I used to be able to delete photos, but it appears that all photos are all in one attachment. If I delete it, I guess all will disappear. Sorry for all the extra photos Lars. If you want, I will delete this post and start over.

    I deleted it Lars. I thought four identical pictures in a row was not good. So I am going to try again this morning. I knew you would like this picture of Molinari. Kind of a rare angle I think.

    Jimbo McConnell in his Mod 50 Molinari/Evinrude CC.
    Did see Jimbo race this boat at Miami Marine Stadium in the late seventies.
    I also know Jimbo was a big friend of Mod 50 racing.
