At the 1963 SCCA Chicago Region June Sprints, a Stanguellini placed third in the Formula Junior category, raced by our friend Bob Birmingham.
While the borrowed Stang' we had on display today atop our Thames wasn't his old car, it still brought a smile to Bob's face.
Even more so when we told him that during our research, we found he had the last ever podium finish for a Stanguellini in SCCA national competition in the Formula Junior class.
If you dont know Bob, you should. His kindness and willingness to share his personal accounts of not only races, but of people long since passed is something we treasure.
It is one thing to create a memory, it's another to keep it alive. Bob is working on three books as we speak to do just that.
