Speedhunters has a great feature with tons of period photos on Bernie Ecclestone’s years as team principal of Brabham, where he was responsible for giving the green light to Gordon Murray’s maddest: the Fan Car.

Incredible as it may seem decades on, there actually was a time when Ecclestone flew coach. Readers well-versed in the details of human anatomy may also note that he seems to lack buttocks, which cannot be said of his famous and horrible bowl haircut.
