Racing on Catalina in the summer of '51, Lindley Bothwell brought his brass era racecars, Mobiloil sponsored the millionaires, and everyone had fun

With friends like P. K. Wrigley, Jesus Chavez, Walt Rosenthal, Ralph De Palma, Anholt, and Koehle and corporate oil sponsorship... who wouldn't have a great time on the twistiest hairpin switchbacked roads in America?

This photo of a Lindy Bothwell might not be the "Lindley Bothwell" private collector and vintage car racer... but it's kinda coincidental... so i'll let you make up your own mind about it.

For an entire gallery on Bothwell's collection, see Nik's post:
