Slide Scanning – LeMans Corvette Racecar Found in Florida Warehouse

There’s a story behind every memory media that walks into the door of our store. Larry Berman, motorsport historian with came in to get his decades old slides scanned. The 35mm slides tell of a story of a famous car race in France. Here’s an excerpt from the AutoWeek:

One of three 1960 Chevrolet Corvettes campaigned by Briggs Cunningham at the 24 Hours of Le Mans–a car whose whereabouts have been unknown for more than 30 years–has been found. Cunningham fielded three Corvettes for the 1960 Le Mans race, the first time Chevrolet’s sports car participated in the race. Cars No. 1 and No. 2 did not finish the race. The No. 3 car famously finished first in its class and in eighth place overall after spending the last hours of the race pitting after every lap to stuff the engine compartment full of ice to keep the engine from overheating. Le Mans rules prohibited the team from adding more liquid to the cooling system.” Click here to read the rest of the story.
