Working fine back here in Georgia.
Any film with multiple Fiat Comp Coupes makes me happy. The twin engine coupe is supercharger guru, Don Hampton's killer Fiat. Can anyone ID the other 2 Fiats?

Not sure which Fiats you are referring to, Rich, but the Dye-Hampton was a favorite.
These two photos were taken the same day as the movie footage...



As a 12 year old, I always took my 8mm spring wound movie camera and a 2 1/4 X 2 1/4 Graflex 120 camera with me.
The dark red comp coupe in the pits was "The Animal" a sinister looking thing that was at San Gabriel the same day as Ivo was squaring off with Garlits. The red coupe getting pushed started is unknown to me. I don't remember ever seeing it again.
