    Reid,

    Where can we obtain a mask shown on pg 5 of the July Healey Marque?

    I'm afraid you'll have to commission one yourself. That's a Photoshopped image (although not by me).

    Here's one possibility; there are many companies that will make these with custom imprints:

    I've just been going full balaclava. I guess it might be a little strange without the my helmet....

    Nope, it's a rare Bandini period racer https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandini_Automobili. This was at PRW (Seattle, WA) SOVREN's Spring Sprint years ago, heavy rain the whole weekend. A Seattle race prep shop was shaking it out prior to shipping to Europe for the Monaco Historic Grand Pre. The owners request was to push it hard and brake anything in question so there's no issues when he's behind the wheel.

    Re: Custom Face Masks

    Check out the attached--it is an image of the lower part my face printed onto a nylon tube.
    A friend of my daughter has the equipment to do this so if interested let me know and I will put you in touch.

    Thanks Michael,

    I'm going to try a more traditional mask. I'll post my results. If that doesn't work out, I may get back to you.

    My daughter got it for me--I simply sent her a photo of the lower part of my face--below my eyes.

    Re: Custom Face Masks

    Wot!?!? No oil stains???

    I'm wearing a mask whenever I'm out amongst my fellow hairless ape brethren. Doesn't do me any good (I think I'm healthy), but will help everyone else if I've guessed wrong.

    Have a look at https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ for tracking how we're all doing, and it looks not good for our American friends.

    And if you want your imagination to go wild: visualize a mask for yourself that imitates Brad Pitt; Tom Cruise; Sophia Loren...

    Later, Doug
