I used to love this comic, I first picked up a copy at my cousin's house & immediately got into it. At the time (early 1980s), 'Flesh' was one of the main stories where future cowboys were 'farming' dinosaurs for meat. Other fave stories of mine included Nemesis the Warlock, Chopper, Slaine, Rogue Trooper, ABC Warriors, Judge Anderson & not forgetting Judge Dredd of course. The comic had excellent writers & artists like Pat Mills, Ramon Sola, Jamie Hewlett, John Wagner, Brendan McCarthy to name a few. 2000 AD is still very much alive today, see link.... http://www.2000adonline.com/
Very nice shot of a Spanish post office Vespa, taken in the depot by the looks of it. Taken by Oliver Abellan...

I saw a free exhibition of Sid Avery's photography at the Serpentine Gallery in London a few years ago & loved the 1950s/Hollywood images he'd taken & is renowned for. Particularly loved the Steve McQueen shots in his Jaguar, some shown below, also great image of Paul Newman & his wife Joanna Woodward at home.....
Some of Sid Avery's most iconic images are showcased in his book, 'Hollywood at Home'.
Some very cool shots by Helmut Newton commissioned by Citroen for their '68 calendar. Follow link to original post on DS Workshop blog.....

Giro Tre Mari (3 seas Vespa race) was a race originating in the 1950s in the south of Italy taking in the Adriatic, Ionian & Tyrrhenian seas with stages taking place over 3-4 days. I would have loved to have ridden this race; you can see some old B&W original images here on YouTube.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6t27whAOFSg
The race has been revived in recent years, you can see a report from 2005 here... http://www.racinglambrettas.com/jamboree/tremari_uk.html
