I found the original overexposed slide. As you can see, there is some surface damage; however, a 3000X2000 scan in the PhotoSmart® allows for a much better view of the famous Moss** standing on the famous pit counter, with his head stuck well into the famous "A" of famous Aston Martin. The #24 car finished 90 laps prior to retiring with transmission woes.

So, I am embarrassed once again by my faulty memory, although this time it seems
as if I just mis-perceived: I've been selling this picture as Joachim Bonnier
since I took it in 1958. I look at it and at some photos I took of ACTUAL BONNIER
in the Riverside paddock a few years later, and I still think "Bonnier."
Maybe the Bonnier at Riverside was also Kunstle. Maybe I just like the "Bonnier"
name better than "Kunstle." Any road, both the results
and the program list drivers of the #45 Porsche 550 RS as Ken Miles and Jean-Pierre
Kunstle. DNF, clutch, 59 laps.|
Excuse me, please.
