Hey Guys,

Just wanted to drop my .02 in to avoid confusion. The dodger stadium poster on this thread was not a period piece. It was printed much later along with many other versions for different races (most with different/random illustrations of other cars and events)...I dont know when they were actually printed but they are a recent poster made to look like an original poster. In fact, many show up on ebay with clearly fake patina added to them..

I am sure a true event poster would have been made for the Dodger stadium event, however, I have not seen one. Those would be extremely scarce.

Wanted to get this out there so nobody goes paying a bunch of moolaa for one. They are readily available and not expensive/collectible. The links below are all from a single seller on eBay..and every other poster the guy is selling is also a fake.

Kind regards,
Vern

Vern - I defer to the pros on this one and plead ignorance. I got so geeked up when I saw it I never even gave it a thought that it wasn't original. It sure looks the part, I'll say that! Other than my assumption that it had been at a race that MacDonald and Miles were in, hopefully there's no harm and no foul in sharing it with the Forum members - they seemed to enjoy the artwork as much as I did. Thanks for enlightening us about the nuances of the poster world.

That thing is still cool as heck though!

^^^ I did enjoy seeing it and really loved the link to the article on Globe Posters.

I'm not sure how this guy is reproducing his posters, where he is getting his images and materials and all and if they are repops, they are most likely digitally printed as it is quicker and cheaper than offset printing.

But take the illustration of the Cobra - and all the other car illustrations for that matter - those look like they have been acquired from a vintage source.

I would love to know how this guy is reproducing or generating all these faux vintage posters.

Here's a neat ad for BAY AREA AUTO SALES that features 5R102.
This was in the Vaca Valley, Sept 10-11, 1966 race program:




I was wondering what the angled black lines were on the front apron in the ad above, then I found this closer photo that shows that they are electrical tape.
Their purpose? I'm still wondering . . .



That's 5R002 if I remember correctly ?? !!

Yo!

I agree that the posters have a great asthetic!

I was merely putting that info out there so nobody paid big bucks for onethinking it was a period piece when u can buy one reasonably for display any day of the week!

I like the poster as well just wanted to save someone the misfortune of paying 100s or 1000s for one!

Kind regards,
Vern

Jim,
That is definitely 5r102 driven by Ron Dykes, who purchased it in early 1966. The second photo posted by Kieth was taken at Stockton, CA in June of '66. The narrow font of the race number "2" was used earlier in the season, by September it became a much wider font that was much easier to see from a distance.

Kieth,
That's an awesome ad you found. Thanks for posting it here!

Yes and no piercings or visible tattoos, I still like the fresh smiling face.  Of course this is only my opinion.

Wheeling around the track in one of those Caterhams/Super 7s/tiny cars with Shelbys and Corvettes bearing down on you had to be a bit intimidating.  The thought of a side impact is terrifying.

Here's a nice photo I had never seen before. It shows Ken Miles on a parade lap with GT/108.

This was in the June 12-13, 1965 Port of Stockton (CA) National Championship Road Races program:
