Mclaren Desktop Worthy Pictures and Scans

Just thought you guys might enjoy this...it has made one heck of a back ground for me for a while.

Peloton, your lurkers post has convinced me that I need to share and thanks other for sharing more.

So thank you for everyone making this my favorite place on the web!! You guys are awesome...dare i say almost as awesome as the F1 itself?

You sir are made of win.

Thanks.

And if I may inquire; where did this pic come from. Looks like some type of manual or instructions.

Hey webslinger - good to see you again too!

Page 90 of "Driving Ambition" - titled 'Components of a Classic'

The full page has a description for each labeled part, top and bottom.

While I have my Top 125 thread for stuff similar to this, let me go dig around for some additional things that fall outside that theme to contribute here.

Re: Mclaren Desktop Worthy Pictures and Scans

I've got another version of that scan from Driving Ambition. I still don't know how to post images to the site, but you can check out an image on Photobucket that I created from the scan. I titled it McBlownApart. You might be interested in the wallpaper. Just PM me if you'd like a larger size.

Re: Mclaren Desktop Worthy Pictures and Scans

I tend to use the most beautiful and unaltered photographs of the F1 for my desktop, but some people prefer something a little more stylish or artistic. I'll share some sets I have collected over the years with a sheet of thumbnails for each and then a link to DL them all if you are interested.



DL Links:

Back with more eventually.

Re: Mclaren Desktop Worthy Pictures and Scans

Here's another set - I forget who the credit for this work goes too, but I seem to recall they were found on jabbasworld.com perhaps?

I also added a link to DL the original file from MediaFire if anyone finds that more effective.

Back with more eventually.

Re: Mclaren Desktop Worthy Pictures and Scans

On my desktop, for a long while, has been a shot I took of the pedal box of #013



then this one that Le Man liked of #06R at Goodwood #09





Nothing fancy - I like mine un-altered, and detailed!

Hi friends.
This is what I see every day on my desktop.


PS: I don't know if I am a lurker or a leech, because I'm sure I'm not a lesbian...

Re: Mclaren Desktop Worthy Pictures and Scans

Hello Jose - Good to see you are still with us.

= = = = = =

webslinger sent me this scan of the back cover of "Driving Ambition" the other day and asked that I host it for this thread. The raw file was in need of a little help, so it took me a couple of extra days to get it cleaned up.

This image below is clickable for a 1783x1275 version that is very nice.



If you want the ultra high resolution version at 3565x2550 (2.4MB), follow this link:

Erik;

That rear shot of that Clinic Model was the first shots I ever saw of McLaren F1. And what after that happened.....
