We welcome the Left Coast MGA crowd with photos of two great MGA's from Vintage 31 racing.
Like Scott Brown and Ed Lamantia Jr.  If you race or raced an MGA and have shots, we'd love to post
photos and history of you and the car.  Bring them on to davnik6@gmail.com

Ed Lamantia Sr in #31 at Laguna
Seca in 1958.  Ed junior races
one of Dad's cars today and
keeps the traditional #31.
Note the 55 Lemans headrest fairing even back then
Proof positive
that the west
coast guys had
plenty of BARC
Scott Brown in #41.  The car had been raced for 20 years and stored for 10 more when Brown and Lamantia found it and restored it to match with #31 Scott hits the curb and shows how stiff this car is with a wheel off the ground Ed Jr races with an Aston Martin
For more info on Scott and Ed take a look at
Karl Stickley with his new twin cam at Lime Rock in spring 1960.  KBS owned Stickley-Siver photo labs and was a big help to BARC Ted Rounds in the Stickley twin
cam at that 1960 Lime Rock race
Rounds at the 1960 SCCA Cumberland national races.  The car was sold to
Gordy Ruston who kept it until 2006 and sold it to his neighbor Dan Fadden

it dropped out in the 2nd hour.
