How about this one?  Stirling Moss at Laguna Seca, 1961.  Note the "roll hoop" and cheesy helmet.   He apparently did not believe in roll hoops, helmets or seatbelts.  Hoop and helmet were so they would shut up and leave him alone.  Seatbelt probably not even in the car.

Seatbelts? Real men are held in their seats by the weight of their giant brass balls.

Saw this cool 15 Replica up on the dragon last year, guy was tearing up the Dragon last year when I was up there.

This guy lives where I do (East TN). Beauutiful car. Poetry in motion. 

I could be wrong, but I doubt it is an American V6. I believe Westfield BMC all the way.
