Bruce McCaw in Ferrari 250TR #0768.  This car has a long history in West Coast racing. 

Phil Hill drove it to victory in the 2nd annual "L.A. Times Grand Prix" at Riverside on Oct. 11, 1959.  Owner Eleanor von Neumann (after her divorce from John) sold #0768 to Jack Nethercutt.  He & Pete Lovely drove it to 3rd place at Sebring on March 26, 1960.  In 1962, Jerry Grant drove the car for Dick Hahn of Yakima, WA, winning the "Rose Cup" pro race at Portland on June 17.

Decades later Lovely acquired the car and campaigned it for years in historic racing.
