I'm forever cleaning up my files  ::)

I came across this image, looks like a photo/video shoot, what is the story behind it ? '67 Brittany  Blue with parchment, and do we

know the car number ? Is this from one of those road rallys in the middle East ? I'm looking at the women in the back ground.

Gardner and Tremulis

Good ol' Garnder & Tremulis needed to think a bit more about names:
A "Coupe de Elegance", with the optional "Biarritz" top sounds a helluva lot more like a Cadillac than a Ford.

Mike, that's the Pomona Fairgrounds' Dragstrip.  On the return road.  Starting line is to the far right, out of frame.

Thanks for the i.d. on that location, spectacular views from there ! Was that where they also had the road course for sports cars ?

I think that was Pomona fairgrounds, same place ?

Here's a pic of Dave and Sherry MacDonald in I believe CSX2128 ? at Pomona in '63.
