the world's finest collections of rare racing programs, race records, and research books
covering all aspects of the world of automobile racing. The main focus of the collection is
the period from 1960 to 1972 although their are many negatives that cover earlier and later
racing events. This outstanding collection can fill most of your needs whether it is a
custom print for your board room wall, photographs and records to properly reconstruct your
historic racing car, or photographs for your upcoming book or magazine project.
One of our many specialties is reconstructing an individual driver's or
a company's racing history. Most racing companies and racing circuits decided, for
whatever reason, that saving their precious history throughout the years was not a very
high priority. Once these companies and circuits realized what they were missing, they turned
to us to help recreate the important past endeavors that did not exist in their archives.
Some of the distinguished companies whose racing history we have helped rebuild, with
photographs and race results, are All American Racers, Penske Racing, Shelby American,
McLaren Cars, and Laguna Seca Raceway.
Over the past years, many of our best known driver's personnel photographic
collections have disappeared in various ways and for numerous reasons. We have received
many phone calls from these former drivers asking if we could reconstruct a photographic
history of their racing careers. The answer has always been yes and among our many satisfied
clients are: Dan Gurney, Roger Penske, Augie Pabst, Bob Bondurant, Lothar Motschenbacher,
Joe Buzzetta, Ed Leslie, Allen Grant, Dan Gerber, and George Follmer.
We have also provided numerous photographs for museum displays at the
Shelby American Collection, The Collier Museum, The Rosso-Bianco Collection, The Penske
Museum, The Smithsonian, The Donnington Collection, and the Competition Automotive Group.
