    sorry Paul, yes it was a rather cool posting and great that you have still got the cutting.

    what I was implying is what is this one worth now wherever it is?

    Ha - good one

    That's funny - I remember that picture well and likely for the same reasons you clipped it.. It does look like Newman is wearing a later model with screw down pushers that look unscrewed judging by where they are sitting on the post. He was known for using his Daytona to time laps so that's probably what's going on there..

    Thanks for posting that

    Happy to post

    The crown is also unscrewed so maybe the photog caught him in mid wind. Pretty sure it's a 6263

    Thank you kindly.

    Hopefully if she keeps it, whoever she leaves it to also holds onto it.
    Thank you kindly.
