Happy Birthday, Stirling Moss!

In an astonishing coincidence, this morning as I was sorting through my old photographic archives, I came upon this photograph that I had resurrected about twenty years ago by scanning and attempting to (barely) repair an old (marked either 1966 or 1976) color slide that had been wildly underexposed.  Not sure which racing event this would have been — it was certainly in California, either at Riverside or perhaps Laguna Seca — but it would have been when they still allowed civilians inside the pits.  (My friend jamesa just might have an idea on this.)  Wondering how old Stirling was, or if he was even still alive, I made an online search and discovered that today is his 90th birthday!
