(I have Racing With Mercedes if anyone would like to borrow it.)

This is a good shot of the Fitch Phoenix. It was a one of a kind prototype that was going to be a production car, It was based on the Chevoloet Corvair and the body was built by Intermechanica of Italy. Before production began Ralph Nader's "Unsafe at any Speed" was published and GM killed the Corvair.

This is a shot of John at the 2011 Greenwich Concours signing the copy of Racing with Mercedes that DSX won at the C2C3 auction.

This is John with legendary motorsports jounalist Chris Ecomomaki, who passed away September 28th and racer/journalist Sam Posey at the 2008 groundbreaking party for the renovation and repaving of Lime Rock Park
