So who are the individuals... love the way you have to wait for the important bit of the pic to arrive...

It was mainly an exercise by me to find out whether I've learned how to post pictures. I'll leave it as a sort of mini-8W for about 12 hous and then post the identities.

The guy on the right looks like Tazio, and the car like an Alfa 40/60 HP.

The first five are easy: Behind the wheel is obviously Enzo Ferrari and next to him unmistakably his wife Laura. Sitting behind Enzo is clearly the dark-skinned Borzacchini and next to him with receeding hairline sits unmistakably Arcangeli. Nuvolari with cigarette in his left hand seems to have his left foot on the car.
Now comes the hard part. The driver behind the car in white overall, a Caracciola look alike, is Caniato, one of the founders of the Scuderia Ferrari. Caracciola had nothing to do with the Scuderia.

For a second I thought that the picture could be from the 1932 season but then I realized that it must be 1931 or earlier if Arcangeli was still living.

Hans,

Great! Like you I identified them as the Ferraris, TGN, Borzacchini, and Arcangeli. However, I didn't recognize Caniato despite racking my brain. However, I did notice the armband which gave me pause.

I am impressed... Now as to where...

... Now as to where...

I finally found this picture in the Orsini/Zagari book The Scuderia Ferrari. The caption reads that the picture was taken on 3 August 1930 for the Coppa Ciano race, when the team left the hotel, driving to the circuit.

Ray,
Sorry my answer took that long.
They all had instant coffee, therefore no grounds in the cups.;)

Funny this came up, Hans. My son, in Indiana, today told me that American coffee residue is called 'grounds' because it was once dirt.

It wasn't Hawaiian coffee because here they wash the harvested beans before drying them.

I'll make a point of telling him to get his coffee from Hawaii, then... must be getting late there, Hans?

Have to leave the Key board now. The Tonight Show just started with Jay Lenno.

Never mind the coffee or the people. Look at that rear wheel. Is that a live axle car, and if so why has it so much negative camber, is it about to fall off with all the people on the car?

It looks like a 6C-1500 but could possibly be also a 6C-1750 touring car. Both cars had a life rear axle. I don't know the camber settings for the wheels.

Maybe there's a pothole under the left rear?

Has anybody else noticed the resemblance between Enzo Ferrari and John Wayne in "The Quiet Man"? Could they have been parted at birth?

No it never occured to me, Roger.

Since you now know how to post images, could you please pass your little secret on to me? I looked under the vB code instructions and the way I understand them, I need a Website, showing where the picture came from. I have no website of my own.

I have seen several answers to this question and have never understood any of them.
Perhaps someone will try answering it step-by-step, rather than in a whole lot of incomprehensible Internet language.

The key to this is to have a website... then you post the picture to your website. After this you type in IMG surrounded by the square brackets ([]) followed but the URL of the picture (ie. http://www.yourwebsi.../pictureURL.jpg) and then finish of with /IMG in the square brackets ... a bludge, really... Barry, I told you a long time ago to let Alfisti lead you by the nose through the setting up of a geocities website for yourself.
If you were on ICQ he could do that for you quite easily any time you're both online... he did it for me.
