These Vintage 70′s Racing Decals over on ISO50 are hotter than hot…
Vintage Porsche Racing Poster Collection is another fine collection by Scott Hansen over at ISO50. It’s not a recent post but is a favourite of mine worthy of another airing.
Lovely find by Shelby on Re:collection: An online archive of Australian Graphic Design 1960-1980.

Need to dig around a bit but worth a look around. I only need boot up my Mac Classic that is sitting to the right of me to experience the good old days.
Trends were alive and kicking way back then.
Racing a car without any structural supports to protect the body or head seems incomprehensible. Yet these men in their–at times, flying machines–race cars would regularly put their life on the line, and it was a thin thin line.
Even more incomprehensible that some of these drivers actually walked away after being tossed up in the air, run over, thrown into the path of another car. Many didn’t and I think what you see in this video are a fair few that didn’t make it.
So don’t watch if you are easily upset by these things. But it is a good watch, it not just to see how utterly mad we were back in the time.
Over 50 individual images in this VW gallery.

I have a few of these old Trademark books, great reads if you can find them to buy, not to mention seeing how logos have changed, mostly through accessibly technology – and I wouldn’t necessarily say for the better either.
