Respectable vehicles, for the most part; seems as if there is a high percentage of ungodly uglies. Delightful.

But for those of us who weren't there, identification would make it twice as interesting

Most of these photos were sold through Ebay in small lots by two sellers. I got their permission
to post the photos once the auctions were over. I'm not sure of the venues but I do know that
some near the bottom of the page were taken at Watkins Glen. I thought the photos would make
a great page and that perhaps over time most of them would be identified.

Staggering how many of those vehicles I do not recognise
Someone will have their work cut out identifying them all

I think it is Merle Brennan in the E type coupe, Dave Ridenour in the Genie, Jack Nethercutt's Lotus 19 (?), John Riddel in the E Type roadster but I forget whose Ferrari sports that is--Vince?

I believe Merle Brennan ran in the SCCA Runoffs during my 12 trips to Road Atlanta in the '70s and '80s. Or am I thinking of Tom Brennan?
.... I think it is Merle Brennan in the E type coupe....

starter, Portland?, Cal Watson?
#32, Woodruffe again followed by Gerry Bruihl, Portland, Oregon, Fiat-Osca
The following link has some programs. The ones from 1961 and 1962 are helpful for some of these photos, and contain some interesting photos themselves (which I might identify later!)

of the guys who own (or care about) the cars today who otherwise would probably never get a chance to see

I'm quite suprised to see a Citroen DS in a paddock shot about a 5th down the page. I didn't know they had them in the states.

The E type roadster with the maple leaf shaped number background was owned and driven by John Razzelle of Vancouver, who later moved to Seattle. I remember his E Type thoroughly blowing up on the pit straight at Westwood...chunks of engine everywhere! Here is a photo of him at Spokane:
