The story: Even later in the day at the 2008 Monterey Historics (see other stories on the Watkins Glen CanAm page and the 1966 CanAm page) I came upon this Lola, the first Lola to try an adjustable spoiler. The owner is going through a pile of restoration photos with a friend of his, and when I arrive, a xerox of this detail photo is the one on the top of his pile. “That’s my photo” I say to him. He says he got it off the internet. “Probably racingsportscars.com” [a great site, btw] I say. The I open my book and show him the original.
How improbable is all of this?
