Old pics

A couple of old pics from the early 70's. The calendar is 1971, presumably taken in the Lotus factory. The ad is also about that time, advertising the win at the American SCCA runoffs, essentially the national "amateur" championship.

More Dave Vegher history, from the 2015 Monterey Reunion Poster.

The Lotus Ad shown by the original poster would be from 1984/85 or so, consistent with the history above.
