Anyway, getting a little nostalgic, here's a shot of him competing in one of his first races in his first race car, a Porsche Roadster, a photo that I don't think he's ever seen. It was taken at San Diego Stadium during an SCCA National race in 1967 running in EP.

|This shot of Dick's Roadster was taken at Riverside Raceway, turn 7. |
The car was still painted silver, but now had a blue scallop painted on the front.
As a kid with a camera, I was shooting BW back in 1968 due to the cost.
Dick went on to run a Porsche 904 shortly after in SCCA AP which led to a Porsche 908 along with other rides.
Here's one of his super cool Porsche 935's at Le Mans. If you want to read more about what he's up to, here's a link to his website, Dick Barbour Racing.
