Your second round of photos look to be from the July 1966 races-#17 Charlie Kolb-Porsche 906 (winner), #21-George Avent-Lotus 23, #77-John Lewis-Scorpion (Troutman and Barnes Scorpion)...etc.

In agreement with rockhouse66-#18 GT350 is the Roger West 5r538 R-model at Daytona 1967, not Sebring (#18 for Sebring 1967-is the Dos Caballos Van Beuren GT350 R-model 5r108).

As an aside, it is interesting to note how many people in the photos are slim and in prime physical shape compared to people of comparable age today.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

#18 is definitely at Daytona waiting to get to the gas pumps on the right, not visible in the picture.
