Sponsorship has dried up big time. No more tobacco to float the boat. I'm amazed at how hard it is for teams to sign up new names. Look back at photos of cars from the 80s and 90s, there are names slathered everywhere. Now, much of the grid operates with basically bare liveries.

Damn, Westbrook. Big blow.
Would be hard to choose between Bonds and Jet. Send both to the baseball thread.Watching Ballmer was 2 notches above Sterling on the cringe scale. I didn't expect it to look that bad. Would be hard to choose between Ballmer, Sterling and Jet. I'd have to go with Ballmer.

I'm being quoted 170 Euros a piece. You're talking about a very expensive ask because these haven't been made in 35 years.

I don't believe so, David. I'm not looking to make a profit here, my intent is more of a community service which serves my own need. I can't have these re-made without a critical mass, so I am reaching out to the community to see if anyone is interested.I'm happy to defer to the moderation to weigh in, but I believe the intent of this thread would not be well served in the B & S section.
