Back after a couple of years - and I find this poor thread is dead due to the corporate greed of Photobucket! :roll: :roll: :roll:

Maybe we can resurrect it one day with all the photos!

I discovered this fix for the photobucket issue on another forum. I tried it and it seems to work.

Remember the speedway at the Sydney show ground and the old Colonial Diner on Anzac Parade love those nights great times and the spray of the dirt was great and smell of the race fuel.

Yep, I'm thinking of marketing an aerosol with Methanol and dust. Just gotta figure out how to get dirt through a spray can nozzle. :?
Mind you, an aerosol of nitro and hot rubber would sell well too. :wink:
Don't laugh - some Sheila in the news is selling a deodorant to attract men with the scent of her.. :roll: ....you know.
