Alfas at Daytona

Thought I'd scan a few pics from the collection while watching the 24 from Daytona.

No Alfas, but I like the shot

No, I wish I knew who the photographer was. They were given to me by the caretaker of a very large archive in Southern California.

Do you have any more ready to scan? That photographer was quite a talent. It's probably a subjective area, but the photo of the #22 Tipo 33 is one of the finest shots I've seen of any racing car in action. Wonderful.

Could I have a high-resolution scan when you find the time?!

I am from Broomal PA. I hung around with people from Newtown Square. Penske had a shop there years ago, we would catch Mark Donohue having lunch every now and then. Those images are wonderful!!!!!

Don,

Just wondering if you've had the chance to contact the copyright holder regarding the photo of the #22 car? As I mentioned in my email to you, this would be strictly for my own personal use and there would be no question of making reproductions in any form.

I'll keep my fingers crossed ...

Thanks,

Alex.
