Wishing I was in Moscow, Idaho
That williams speedster in post #11 has surprisingly compact suspension. Anyone know if it worked well, or why that particular setup was chosen in the first place?

Stirling Moss's Birdcage

I spoke with the owner, restorer and former owner/author about this gorgeous Birdcage. It had been campaigned by Stirling Moss and others with great success. It ended up a used, unloved old racing car that was sawed in half to install a v-8 into. That never happened and was lovingly restored in the 70s to its former glory with the larger 2.9 liter motor installed. The car was crashed and went thru a significant restoration 30 years later. This time, with the advance of knowledge, many earlier decisions were corrected.

Nice pics, kvisser... with other UCP folks in attendance it would have been cool to meet! Maybe we should wear a badge or hat to identify one another. Do you know if it is the #22 Sebring car Moss shared (seems impossible, but true) with Dan Gurney in 1960, chassis #2457? It had a crowd around it so unfortunately I didn't get to read the card. Here are a couple of detail photos:

makes the decision to cancel our trip even more regrettable...I think the Birdcage is #2458, at least it looks pretty much like this one, which raced at the Historics last year, as well as in 2008 and 2007, but a good paint job does wonders..I have no pictures of 2457.

Hmm, one thinks there may be certain handling issues with that Indycar!

Love that Birdcage.

Points deducted for non-aligned screw heads. Wait! Those should be rivets!

We attended the design symposium which was a disappointment. Freeman Thomas was the only designer to discuss process in a way that wasn't "me, me, me" but still, all 4 guys kept insisting that auto design was all about "millennials". During Q&A, someone rightly questioned such a strategy in the face of declining sales, social relevancy and aging boomers, a much larger market. None of them responded with a clue. No wonder Detroit is in trouble.

But the 917 drivers group moderated by Tim Considine and Sam Posey was great! Perhaps development and racing stories we've heard before, but lots of fun. Brian Redman, John Horsman, Vic Elford, Derek Bell, Charlie Kemp and Hurley Haywood. Here's a few photos:

A bonus display was Bertone's BAT 11. Quite impressive in the flesh.

The special guest honoree was Richard Petty, but Porsche was the feature car; specifically the 917. Terrific group of eleven to drool over.

More Porsches... Collier's #2 being driven back from the judging stand elicited a scolding from a cranky old Ferrari guy: "Hey! Slow it down, slow it down!" like he was telling kids to get off his lawn. Too funny... maybe moving at 10mph. My freind's '69 Jennings car fresh from restoration was stunning. Besides the MOMO 935 he also hauled Piper's 917 for the show but never started it... a fun tow!
