Those Were the Days is all about the Golden Age of Motor Racing when men were drivers and women were only worth half a point.
The Age of Fangio, Moss, Brabham, Rindt, Graham Hill, Stewart, Fittipaldi, et al.
A time when a driver competed in Saloon Car, Sports Car, Formula 2, Grand Prix and Lawn Mower racing - sometimes all in one week. When a racing tyro could show his mettle in wheel banging races with the Grand Prix Stars.
