    Just think Roger, 10 years earlier you could have had a McLaren M6 GT for 8 grand US.

    I feel blessed that I have been able to visit there a few times over the years.

    From L to R.
    # 97. 1962 Shelby Cobra of Steve Park. # 91 a 1963 Cobra 289 of Tim Park. # 16 the 1963 Cobra 289 of Lynn Park ( All part of the collection of Lynn Park). At the far end is the 1963 Cobra of Bill Hartman.
    A bit about Lynn Park at this site.

    Bill Hartman had trouble on pit row getting his # 92 Cobra going. Ahead of Bill is Lynn Park in his famous 1963 Cobra 289 # 16.

    The Class 6 B field for 1963-1966 GT cars over 2500 cc comes around to the start and Bill Hartman is still stuck on pit road.

    A great sounding machine at speed.

    Charles Nearburg in his 1991 AAR/Toyota Eagle GTP # 99 heads along the entry road alongside Bill Auberlin in his 1999 Williams V12 LMR # 42.

    Charles Nearburg also does a fine job of driving his 1980 Williams FW07 B # 27 around in the 1967-1984 Formula One Group 7B races.

    Interesting group with the BMW " 420 " - the 320 body with 4 litre V8 from the 5 and 7 series- understand they were banned after a season, as BMW did not make a Road Car ..
