[Chapman-era] 34TPF(?) on SimpleSevens

Publicised to my loyal followers first, take a look at this, my gathering of
information on David Porter's S1 Seven 34TPF which was the car that Hugh
Haskell modified after it was crashed to create the 7/20 (sometimes also
referred to as the 7 1/2 as I understand it).

A bit of material direct from
David Porter himself to me, then a trove of imagery of the apparent
restoration of the car as photographed by Dennis Ortenburger in preparation
for Legend of the Lotus Seven, as well as a few copy negative photos that were
apparently provided by Lotus at the time Dennis was preparing the book (these
were the additional competition photos of 34TPF prior to rebuild).
Additionally, you'll see my exchange with Dennis regarding the uncertainty of
whether this is THE 34TPF.

Have a look and let me know what you think -- I
have not listed this on the home page of the website yet as I intend to give
it a final touching up after hearing from y'all -- Enjoy!
