01 -      Page from a San Diego magazine (maybe San Diego Magazine) someone saved for me. I believe the information is not accurate: Unlikely that Bruce Kessler, co-driver in the 6-hour race, would have been in the"death seat" while the car was moving; misleading use of "1959", which was well after Torrey Pines' history as a racing venue had ended in 1956
