If any of you guys ever get over to the UK and the Lake District in particular make sure you find time to visit the Lakeland Motor Museum at Backbarrow in Cumbria. It's a real treat, if only for the Donald Campbell Bluebird exhibition, which is a recent addition to the main event. The museum is only a couple of miles from lake Coniston on which he met his maker. The photo of Bluebird is just a replica but they're actually rebuilding the real one which they eventually found at the bottom of the lake after a gap of 35 years.

Here's only a few pics and even an early two stroke for Tony at the end.

I couldn't not take a pic.

Nice place!!! I read about where they found Campbell's boat ad were restoring it. From the newsreel film I saw there couldn't have been too much of it left. Too bad that Yamaha was in the way of the 500T. Always loved them!
