Lotus 49 Ford Cosworth DFV Display

The 1967 Formula One season was, in many ways, a season of firsts. Jim Clark won the Dutch Grand Prix racing the Lotus 49—a car he was driving for the first time—in its very first outing. Dan Gurney became the first (and, so far,  only) American driver to win a grand prix in a car of American construction at the Belgian Grand Prix, Honda became a first-time winner at the Italian Prix and, for the first and, perhaps, only time, nearly every full-time constructor except Ferrari and BRM won a championship race. Coincidentally, it was also the last season before the introduction of aero elements to the sport.

Arguably the introduction of the Lotus 49 with its Ford Cosworth power winning it’s first time out with a driver who had never even sat in the car before the race at Zandvoort, has to be at the top of the list of firsts (the Dan Gurney win is very nearly the top moment). When V-12 power was, more or less, the standard power choice of the day, the Ford V8 was positively revolutionary especially when coupled to Colin Chapman’s lightweight monocoque design. Small and lean, even by the then current Formula One Standards, the Lotus 49 represented an entirely new direction in F1 construction.

About Garage Graphics® — Doug Buchanan is a car guy (Arnolt-Bristol, Jaguar S1 coupe, and others). His father is a car guy (Morgan, Dodge Viper). His grandfather was a car guy (Voisin Demi-Berline). He’s also the third-generation owner of Renze Display, a 120 year-old exhibit and large scale digital graphics company in Omaha, Nebraska. For years, Doug has wanted to combine his love of cars and large scale graphics and it all recently came together with the addition of dye-sublimation printing equipment capable of producing images as high as 10 feet. Garage Graphics® was born! The effect of the super-sized graphics is absolutely stunning—made more so by the addition of dimmable LED backlighting—and something you just have to see to fully appreciate its impact.
