1966 Mid America Trans Am Report from Sports Car Graphic
Hi All, Just re-read this article in Sept 1966 SCG with the benefit of the last couple of years of research and note a couple of interesting things.
First it reports that 13 GTAs showed up for this event but 3 broke in practice along with a Ti, leaving 10 GTAs to start the race. Wonder who broke? We need an entry list for this race and a grid chart. Who has old timer contacts near Wentzville?
Second a rare frontal picture of #39 O'Brien on GTA at start of race. Are there white stripes on right side of roof?
Third I can see 7 GTAs in the picture, White Harry T left of Dart and #31 Taylor rear right and a RHD just behind #39 and others.
I think there is a Le Mans style starting line up picture somewhere of this race but can't find it at the moment, if I recall you can see #85 Brizzard with his hood up.
The fourth picture shows the SCG's idea of a centerfold. Decent!! Art by George Bartell. This could be bought from SCG as part of a print set.
The License plate number looks like 09056-UD. What if it was 109056-UD?
