    The first two shots are fall Watkins Glen(note the photographer's garb in #2) probably early 1970's. The rest look like Mid Ohio to me, there was an area for car clubs just before the carousel.

    Second photo shows 250 Testa Rossa #0714 TR, likely at the US Grand Prix at Watkins Glen in 1976 or 77. Appears to be a Super Vee in the background.

    The dark blue 1969 365 GTB/4 is curious as it doesn't look like a race car beyond having a NART emblem on the front fender. However the plexi nose early version Daytona was not legal to register and drive on the street in the USA when new. This was well before the grey market got busy importing and federalizing Ferrari Boxers.
    Chinetti had a 365 GTB/4 with the plexi nose in 1969 that was briefly street driven but he was not allowed to keep the car in the USA. That red Daytona was shipped back to Europe.

    250/LM sn. 5995 in silver, the 4th picture in the original group. These two pictures below show the car in it's original 1965 race livery (n.140) before silver paint and a large fastback style clear rear window were added in 1966. Note to the chrome trim on the two small vents on either side of the front grill have not been installed yet...

    I’m pretty sure that Daytona is still in the North East. I saw a blue/black Daytona with shields like that in CT in either 2015 or 2016.

    Thank you for sharing that detail David!
    Wow that would be amazing since Luigi Chinetti was forced to send his 1969 365 GTB/4 back to Europe. Amazing if the dark blue Daytona somehow escaped that fate. Maybe Francois Sicard remembers the story regarding this Ferrari Daytona but I doubt he ever comes here...

    Most probably #13423, originally Blu Dino 106-A-72 with Nero VM 8500, the third Daytona new to Chinetti and the first blue one to Chinetti, sold later by Chinetti to a Mr. Scapula.

    My mistake... I just looked back through my photos from 2014 and the car was red and just painted to resemble a plexiglass nose. It did have the giant NART shields on it though.

    Sorry everyone.
