A bit of inflatable racing history for you ribnobbas

just scanned a we booklet produced by Embassy in 1974, and found this pic of what I presume is a racing SIB!

It says it's a Mk4 Zodiac (not the Ford version )

Racing SIB

So cool

Love the driving position, huge steering wheel and proportions of the whole thing.

Looks like someone lifted driver, wheel etc straight out of a 40's/50's racing car.

Or have I had too much sun today?
