its an age thing and you are right of course...I suppose like old cars others may surface one day but the wooden ones will be rarer than hens teeth..

Missed revival last year but will be there this also going to Le Mans 24hrs..last years surge to get THUNDERBOLT ready cleaned me out and we still have loads of work to do...

Lord March should do something about Tommy Sopwith one year T on display at the Revival ..Brilliant!

Mike your right, THUNDERBOLT on display at goodwood would be rather special, They have had a few Powerboats on display at the festival in past years, But a classic at the revival would be very fitting,
There is another wooden classic sitting on its trailer in a hanger At RAF Wroughton just begging for restoration , Such a shame. Cheers Colin
