Looking for Cliff Startin. Cliff was originally from England. Very good friends with Rob Walker. Was the service manager of Hillcrest Motors in Beverly Hills in the early 70's. Was a great photographer. He had his own business in the Valley area of Los Angeles. Would love to be able to show his pictures on this site.

Me and Sid Taylor pushing the Lola 332 to the line for the first race ever held at Long Beach. I am at the back in cowboy shirt. Tony Brise, Graham Hill's protege drove the car. I would title this "Hear Comes the Thunder"! He was great.

Cliff would have a new Cadillac convertible for us whenever we came to town. We got Howden Ganley one when he drove at Riverside for us. Sid would tell Cliff "have it started and headed in the right direction, we have got no time to talk now". He was a true friend and our 'chief photographer'.
