Not so much Desert Pink as Desert Beige from the Italians. All from IAT 1991, apologies for the quality but time has taken its toll with the negs.

Here's yet another pack of three.

This time Woodford in 91:

purely from memory, this Puma crashed shortly after the show, maybe even on the way home. Can anyone confirm?

just two here, but my personal favourite, and just to note how matt the pink was. Take note every museum and custodian that should know better than to paint a supposedly representative museum piece gloss!
