got pictures of 906-(whatever serial # it is), from 81 year
old Pitty Block. The pictures, as he remembers, are as the
car had been raced for some time.
Note: the front
fender air exit at the rear of the fender well .
picture you can see where the cutout was re-glassed by Scott
Flanders, who was the second owner of the car. Tom Stegman
bought the car from Scott.
flare appears to be in the old picture. The flare was added
after the car had been painted various colors including yellow

paint, which means the flare was added after many races??

a picture of a C-6 entered by the Porsche system in 1966 with

Pitty Block looking at the normally aspirated engine. Pitty

We still don't know much about this car while it was at Porsche,

with an injected engine, they would only sell it with a carbureted
THANKS to Henry Bradley, who is a long time friend of Pitty's
and received these photos from him days ago. These pictures
fill in another part of the puzzle. Pitty isn't young anymore,
but luckily is in good health (he surfs regularly at his resort
in Peru). Because some of these owners and drivers from the
60's are leaving our earth, we need to get all the information
on all our racing Porsches while we can. Thank you Pitty and
