Chuck Parsons -- Austin Healey

Austin-Healeys dominate the front rows of this production race at Laguna Seca in the late 1950s.  Parsons is in the white car nearest the Starter.  Lots of Triumph TR3s as well.  Porsches are surprisingly far back.  This looks like a fun race!

"I think the date on the Laguna Seca grid picture is Nov. 8, 1958.  Regarding the Healeys:  George Snively is #144, Richard Newhall is #133, Bill Kinchloe is in the RHD car with hardtop. I don't know who is in the dark car in front, do you?  I can't make out the number.  Possibly Ed Leslie.  I don't show Snively in a race program/result for the day, but that is certainly his car and helmet."
