  1. Great coverage Dennis, one question, why are some of the cars entered so obviously modified from original?. By that I mean, to see 68 Mustangs with “bib” spoilers that were not standard equipement when new, who gives these cars approval to run with “non” modified cars?… I live in Scandiavia where Historic Racing is organized under F I A rules, and as such, cars must be presented and approved as raced in period. Which seems fair, as knowone gets an unfair advantage by “cheating” so to speak. Are there any moves in your country to “clean” up the act, and give those cars so obviously modified a chance to be returned to standard/original again?.

    Just an observation from someone who thinks that if a Racecar is Vintage/ Historic,it should look the part, and not be presented with all sorts of non period parts hanging off of them… I look forward to seeing your photographs of next weekends event. More photographs of 50 s and 60 s sportscars,and sportsracers will “make my day” Cheers Dennis. Graham…

    1. Racing in the US was not subject to FIA rules and Appendix K (fortunately). The Mustang, Javelin and Challenger are exactly as raced in period in the the Transam championship.
      SCCA rules were also much more liberal than Appendix K in Europe. In any case, Appendix K cars were anything but standard, except for the bodywork.

  2. Fabulous photos. Sorry I couldn’t make it this time. Auriana’s Maserati Tipo 151 should not have the red stripe on it’s nose. Also, chassis 006 was destroyed at Daytona in 1963. The present car is chassis 004. Please tell me where I can send a pdf of my research. It is accurate beyond any argument. The only way that the car is chassis 006 is if the Maserati factory changed the number plate at the factory, but it still should not have the red stripe.

  3. Why is the Jim Froula Skyline being called a (KPGC10) “GT-R”? As far as I can see it started life as a KGC10 GT or GT-X with a 12v SOHC Nissan L20A straight six engine, and still uses a (later) L6 engine on track. It can’t even be called a GT-R ‘replica’ if it hasn’t got the GT-R’s 24v DOHC S20 engine, the R192 diff, quick steering box and all the other GT-R-specific parts (let alone the correct bodyshell). Surely it’s simply a lookey-likey. A beautiful and exquisitely built lookey-likey, but a lookey-likey just the same.
    Don’t the organisers, the people attending the event and the people on track at the same time as this car know what it really is? What’s the story here?
