    Great shots, thanks for scanning and posting.

    You have to love the guy wearing only boxer shorts topping up the fluids. The technology sure has changed but it's funny how in other ways the fashions have almost come full circle. The girl in the last photo (58) is carrying a purse that could have come right out of the store in 2008.

    Wow - good catch - I never would have noticed that...

    But yeah - that's why I found these shots so amazing like others from the same era. It's amazing to me how "basic" things were...

    When I get some time I'll split the ones that are sideways and two per frame - then try to restore them a bit...

    So is there any story behind these? How did he have so much access? Or was it just like this back in the day?

    It was just like that back in the day, we used to go into the pits anytime night or day.

    Yeah - it was just back in the day. I think for Argentina they were there w/ the Latin American President for Ford at the time or something - as my grandfather worked for Ford for a while.

    But in Sao Paulo - yeah - you either jumped the fence - or were simply allowed in :)

    They used to have an F1 race in Cali, it was in Long Beach!

    Luv the Elf Tyrell shots. Also looks like one of Niki Lauda, post crash, must have been pretty fresh off that.
