Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

Looks to be a 289 Cobra? Besides the snout and hood scoop it says "289 Ford Racing" on the side.

Also, there is a GT-E Cougar lurking behind it on the other side of the fence.

Any info on when and where this pic was taken?

I'm sure most know this - but just in case.... GT-E Cougars had unique grills - blacked out with twin horizontal chrome bars running across the middle.

I've sent this pic on to the GT-E Registrar.

Car spotting addendum

Once again, spotting background cars can be as interesting as the main image imho.

In reply 181 photo, just to the right of the dude in the red jacket is a Mk 1 Cortina with a black trunk lid. Guess some custom paint accents were added.

and to the right of the Cortina, a 2002 BMW?
Behind the lady looking at the camera and next to the red jacket, perhaps an MG?  Got a luggage rack and the suitcase is wrapped in plastic due to the rain. 

My uncle raced his Triumph from the late 1950's until perhaps the mid-1960's.   I always look at these photos and see if I can spot him or my aunt.  He's passed now, but 30 years ago he pulled out his photo's from way-back.  It had him and the Group-44 team and such....just hanging out before and after the races.  They also had a Volvo and between the Cobra and the people, is a Volvo.  Except I remember theirs was more grey. 
Pirating!  Corporate take-over without the paperwork

Nope, it's not Riverside.  Too green.  Hills are too small (although the density of big rocks is pretty close.)

Count the number of non-CA license plates. (Are there any CA plates?)
