|Ed Matsuishi's Photos
(2): German Grand Prix -- 1963
From Ed: "At Nurburgring (August 4, 1963)
Phil Hill was with the ATS team. On the way from Italy, the driver
fell asleep, and ran the transporter off of the road dumping the three
cars off. We tried to make one good car out of the three bent ones.
Just before the last qualifying session, when we tried to put gas in the
car, it all ran out the bottom of the damaged fuel tank.
So Phil and I watched the race from the grandstand."

"I just ran across the 5 pages
of Ed Matsuishi's photos of the West Coast and European paddocks, pits,
races and they are remarkable! Also totally amazing is that they
were taken while he was a mechanic for the Maseratis and a traveling friend
of Phil Hill. Please give Ed my sincerest gratitude for digitizing
them, choosing to post them, and for sharing his very unique experiences
with us all. We have gotten a very rare and unique view into racing
in a most wonderful era of each venue he has exposed to us. Thank
you, so much!"
