One of our very good friends and associates for nevadamusclecars.com and racemotionpix.com, has just presented to us a number of old racing and motorsports enthusiasts pictures from his archives from a number of events in auto racing, boat racing and plane racing from many years back when his “Sportsman” father participated in may differing events. We will soon be digitizing a number of these and also putting together a few video productions for both posting here and for You-tube to share in some of these fine memories from all the way back in some cases to the mid 1930’s.
For now here are just a few pics from Sebring 12 Hour Endurance Classic (1969-1972)from the famed old airport circuit from Florida such as the #21 NART (North American Racing Team) 365 GTB/4 Competition Ferrari Daytona from the 1970 race as shown above at speed…..
