    Some photos I took back in 2002 at VIR, during the Challenge Series races. I'm sure some of you guys will recognize these cars.

    Great pictures. Thanks. Not to be a pain but I think number 3 is a 250 SWB, not a GTO. You might want to change that.

    Santini, thanks for sharing the pics. For future reference, the Ferraris shown are as follows:

    1961 250 GT SWB s/n 2729GT (red, #146)

    1961 250 GT SWB s/n 2733GT (silver, #16)

    1955 121 LM s/n 0532LM (red, #11)

    1953 375 MM Spyder s/n 0372AM (red, #5)

    1979 512 BB/LM s/n 32129 (blue/yellow, #76)

    1970 512 S s/n 1004 (red, "Transmission repairs.")

    Of course you already know the 360 engine and 550 Maranello...

    1980 512 BB/LM s/n 32131 (red/stripes, "Business end.")

    It was my pleasure Wayne. Thanks for sharing your information as well. BTW, how do you know such specifics about these cars? :confused:

    By the way, what scanner did you get, and how do you like it? Obviously web photos won't do full justice.

    I bought an HP Scanjet 4600. It's a very nice scanner for the $. It's one of their new "transparent" scanners that has the scan/light bar sandwiched between two polycarbonate windows, so you can see what you're scanning. The color-matching of scanned photos is just about perfect. Excellent resolution. VERY versatile: you can hold the scanner up to a picture on the wall and scan it. My kids are going to get a lot of use out of it as well for school projects, etc.

    Hey, I remember that event. Peter Giddings stole my water bottle right before the awards for the historics. That was the first race my now wife and I worked for FoH's challenge team.

    I wish they'd bring the Challenge races back to VIR but it doesn't look like they're going to be up there this year either.
