Thought those with early S's may enjoy this picture.

Also, I have done it as an example of how big you can go when uploading pictures as attachments. Click on the above image, then click on it when it opens in a new window & you will be surprised how big you can actually go. This image is still only 3/5 of the maximum file size.

Looks just like one of the tantalising photos in Jeremey Walton's little Osprey book on the Coopers, a book I drooled over many times before buying my first Mini ;)

Is that a Comps block often called Formula Junior?

Second question.... anyone got one?

Remember this is a VERY early 1071, it may even be a pre production press shot.

Quite a few 1071s had the flat face block, I'm sure one of the Simons could pin down the date, and not sure they were much to do with Comps. Ive seen quite a few for sale in the last few years and not for particularly big money but seemingly dried up recently?
