      I thought these links to John Wilson’s photos might be of interest to some of you. John Wilson is a Motorsport photographer on the west coast. Unfortunately, there were no captions so I tried to identify the drivers/cars I could;

      http://homepage.mac.com/johnwilson1942/ … index.html

      1 – #50 Ken Miles in a Tiger
      2 through 12 – #66 Art Firms. This Tiger is now owned by Steve Sorensen
      13 – #49 possibly Roger Enade’s Alpine
      14 +15 – #45 Lew Spencer in the yellow Shelby Tiger
      16 – #73 Tiger… not sure
      17 through 22 – #55 Jim Adams in the Hollywood Sport Car Tiger
      23-24 – unknown
      25-34 – Ron Dykes in the Hollywood Sport Car Tiger
      35 – #54 Serge May in the Series 3
      36 – #14 The Bob Richman Alpine possibly driven by Jim Adams, D. Jordan or Steve Froines (or any other driver that ran the car)
      37 – #44 Orange Alpine is a Sebring Alpine driven by ? (Denny Harrison? Maybe George Cheyne? BTW< this is the old Proctor/Harper Sebring car. Now owned by Andrew Martin)
      38 – #184 Unkown – could this be the Hollywood Sports Car Alpine???? Windscreen sort of looks right…
      39 – #66 Sereis II, "Behler". He ran the ARRC in 1968 but was suppose to race an Alfa.
      40 – #66 Tommy Elliot driving the "Visalia Dodge Boy’s" Alpine (this is the car I own today)
      41 – #66 Tommy Elliot driving the "Visalia Dodge Boy’s" Alpine
      42 – #54 Serge May, #14 is the Bob Richman Alpine
      43 – #54 Serge May

      http://homepage.mac.com/johnwilson1942/ … index.html (mostly Alpine photos here, some duplicates from the link posted above)

      1 – Don Sansanac in #67 and William Rushton in #69 (I think Don’s car was in Herbie the Love Bug… as a side note)
      2 – #44 Orange Alpine is Denny Harrison or maybe George Cheyne
      3 – #69 William Rushton
      4 – #122 leading is the old 1962 Sebring Car
      5 – #184 not sure… might be the old Hollywood Sports Car Alpine
      6- #66 Behler at the 1968 ARRC
      7 – #66 Tommy Elliot
      8- #66 Tommy Elliot
      9 – #66 Tommy Elliot
      10 – #54 Serge May

      It was really kind of John to pull these Sunbeam images from his archives and post them to the internet. He sells these images, too. http://www.vintagemotorsportphotography … Categories
      Hope you enjoyed them.

      Looks like Don Sansanac in #67 is running LAt wheels on the car
