1960 Montgomery SCCA Nationals
A classic battle of Ferrari GT's took place this day.  Dean Mcarthy's long wheelbase versus Bob Grossman's SWB Berlinetta.  They were perfectly matched and battled the entire race.  We were there to record it for history.  McCarthy was from a town just 40 miles from Binghamton and Grossman was a very cool guy with a dealership near New York and he was always kind to let us snoop around his agency when we got to Nyack.
