We never really notice time slipping away, and how many images such as this have been lost. It documents a richness in a day when you could drive your street car to the track (notice the front license plate), strip the windshield off, tape a few numbers on, throw on some overalls and hit the asphalt, tires screamin'.
The shot was taken at an SCCA Drivers School held in the parking lot of the Del Mar Fairgrounds, circa 1963.
You have to wonder, is it as fun today as it was back then. What do you think?
