Pic Of The Week: Stirling Moss/Mille Miglia

PistonHeads Pic Of The Week is usually a photograph but we couldn't resist sharing this cracking image of Stirling Moss, his navigator Denis Jenkinson and the M-B 300 SLR on a charge to victory in the 1955 Mille Miglia, especially as we know what a charitable bunch our lovely PHers are. (Yep, that's right, we're on the scrounge again...)

Our latest POTW is a painting by renowned motoring artist James Dugdale, and it has been picked to star on the 2010 charity Christmas card from the Guild Of Motoring Writers. "Send your season's greetings in style," they say, and here's how you can do that. All proceeds from sales of the card go to the Guild's Benevolent Fund for motoring hacks who've fallen on hard times, and naturally we can't think of a nobler cause. (Ahem!)

The image itself is owned by Bodyshop Magazine, who - in the same spirit of charitable giving - have kindly agreed to let you download it as a wallpaper for your PC (no commercial use allowed though folks!). Even more kindly, they've agreed to offer the image as an A2 print to charitable PHers who feel like writing a £20 cheque to BEN, the automotive (and related industries) benevolent fund.

If you'd like a copy, send your cheque for £20 (made payable to 'BEN' please) to:

Bodyshop Magazine
The Firs
High Street

Meanwhile, we look forward to receiving all those Christmas cards!

    Now that is very nice, love the way front of the car displays some battle "scars" too.

    Just my cup of tea that, nice one.

    For those of you who like this sort of thing and have missed this thread the first time around, take a look.

    Great painting, superb subject matter and a very reasonably priced print for an excellent cause. My first 10 on the PH O'meter.
