Geoff ? Who's Geoff ? ! ?

I always assumed it was his real name, but that as he used it so seldom it might as well have been a pseudonym.

I must admit, I'd always assumed it was his real name too.

Heh. Anyone for Bizarro Thunderbirds? 'Geoff Tracy' is cashiered from NASA for crashing a T-38 while drunk. The disgruntled former astronaut rounds up his illegitimate sons and forms 'International Wreck-You'. They fly around demolishing buildings, setting fire to oil rigs & pushing space probes into the sun. They all have little goatee beards, of course, and Brains is an ex-Nazi scientist called 'Gehirne'. Lady Penelope is a tracksuit-wearing 'chav', and the Hood is actually a brave, chivalrous detective dedicated to bringing them to justice.

I'm a very sick little boy.

I got a question...
I was looking at Slade's TB2 build when I saw this pic posted...



Nice image, but heres the question?

On Tracy Island, only the family, Brains, Tintin and Kirano are about.. So who are driving those ugly a&^ cars that can be seen in the bottom right of the pic? You going to tell me that a family that has a brother racing special designed cars, would be seen in those???

"TB1-A... I need a battery jump at pod level five!"

Im still scratching my head!

Nawh man, its the Janitors! There is a special league of heros that nobody likes to mention ! Rarely seen or spoken of they clean up the messes after all the rescues, wars ,swashbuckling adventures etc. Somebodies got to refuel those those vehicles, put them through the starwash,wax them to get rid of those lazer burns and finally valet the interiors to get rid of all those crisp packets. Janitors do all the really dirty work in the universe. Check out Robot Chickens Starwars special on youtube. Absolutely superb. You'll bust a gut (or your money back!)

Ugly ! The cars are a Citroen DS estate and a Ford Fairlane - both 1960s classics. Someone on Tracy Island - actually most people in the Thunderbirds world come to think of it - must have a thing about driving 1960s steel.

It's part of a retro art movement in the future.

Afraid it's another screen-grab - from a 69 episode of UFO.
