    GTO, give me a full break. Compared to McAvoy, enigmatic Errol is an open, illustrated and commented picturebook. But the pic is a real find and a hint at the Olympian’s charisma.
    Freddie’s fantastic feat of arriving in Paris from Nice within the 10 hour mark, landed him a commisionary sales job with Talbot at an automobile fair in New York. His well off sprouting money well first wife, Beatrice Cartwright had purchased one. Somewhere out there is an article called “A Nazi stole my Teardrop” giving further insight about that drop dead beautiful car.
