Old Man in a Corvette

I have several 4x6 B&W copies of this photo of John Fitch in the #3 Cunningham Corvette that was raced by Fitch and Bob Grossman at LeMans in 1960. To the best of my knowledge the picture was taken at the Corvettes at Carlisle (PA) event in 2003.



The pictures are signed by John Fitch (they are reproductions including the signature)

On the back of the photo it says:

To this for whom automobiles are forever
fascinating; for those who see in a turning wheel
both the principal of motion and the promise of
other horizons, For those who see in a fine
automobile an expression of the man's will, one form
of his art and the evidence of his longing to move
with precision and grace.


....."Adventures on Wheels"
Autobiography of John Fitch


Fitch was to a large extent responsible for setting up the first Corvette racing team and establishing the Corvette as a force to be reckoned with in International Road Racing,

If anyone would like a copy PM me your mailing address and I will send you one,

The supply is limited so order yours today!

But wait, there's more! If you are one of the first 5 callers you will also get a copy of the notorious "Pothole Explosions The Movie" posters!
This rare poster is doubling in value every year. Last year it was worthless and today it is worth twice that!
