Taking a little break from the 'proof sheet' negatives, Jim also has Race Programs that are always of interest, so we'll do a few of them now to mix things up a little.

Here is one from Mallory Park for the March 13, 1966 race. These programs are of interest to me because they confirm race dates that are sometimes listed differently in different sources.
And SAI cars on the cover are what draws us to them in the first place, although what's represented on the cover will usually be different cars at previous races.

For example, this 1966 Mallory Park cover uses a representation of CS2131 at Aintree on 4/18/64:

A Cotati race program with a pretty eye-catching cover:




The article in it about the first Northern California appearance of the Cobra:




The photo that accompanied the article (which is Dave MacDonald in CSX2026 at Dodger Stadium in March, 1963):




A color photo that I added here to show Dave's Cobra at that race even better:




And a cool ad in this program that advertises where Ken Miles used to work:

This cover of a 1966 Mallory Park race program is illustrated with Sir John Whitmore & CSX2345 at Oulton Park on May 1, 1965.
The delight on his face in the photo I've added of him at that same event is clearly visible in the illustration also - amazing!

Jim also has these things that we call 'photo sheets' - again, for lack of a better term. They are 8x10 sheets that have four 4x5 photos on them.
There's nothing written on the back of these, like there was on the back of the proof sheets.
And same as with the proof sheets, he doesn't really even recall where he got them - but they've got some good stuff on them!

Do you see what's in the upper right on this one? (you're going to get a taco-neck by looking...)

Well, I was just about to rotate it, crop it, magnify it and post it, and then - the dreaded Disk Quota Exceeded warning . . . . .

Could the photo in the upper left be the Alfa TZ that Johnson & 2259 hit at Sebring in 1964?

That's what I was thinking too.

Jim talked to Ron Richards of SAAC and got me fixed up & going again - Thanks Guys!

car 26-JD - It did help, and Thank You for doing so! But I thought I would post it here again, in the larger size that doesn't have to be opened like an attachment.
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Now, getting back to the excitement I felt when I first saw that image for the first time, I thought, Wow, another unpublished/unseen photograph!

Of course, I immediately recognized Dave MacDonald in his signature 'Cobra' helmet. And there's Bob Holbert looking at him - this is at Sebring in March 1964 where they drove Daytona Coupe CSX2287 as #10. On the right you can see Ken Miles giving something a pretty intent look and Bob Bondurant is behind him. I don't know who the guy wearing the Team jacket & looking at the photographer is though.

Note the 'can opener hole' that Phil Remington cut into the roof to try to provide some relief from the cockpit heat, and also notice the streams of oil that have blown back from the little holes in the dome of the front clip.

This is another unheralded photograph from the cutting room floor, but it's a pricless moment of history that may never have been seen otherwise:

Glad you are back posting.  Chug a Lug   That hole in the roof is crazy! Great picture.

Here is Proof Sheet #4. On the back is written: "Haschel - Roll 11 - 64 of 21 March 1964 Sebring 12 Hr. Endurance."




On it, we can see a sequence of photos that show Ed Lowther doing a little 'agricultural exploration' with CSX2153.
The pole & palm trees are perilously close, but incredibly, he misses all of them!

The photographer did a fantastic job of catching the whole incident:
