Ford - Ferrari War - Daytona 1965

This is the 1965 Daytona 2000 Km. race and 1965 was right in the middle of what we call The Ford - Ferrari War. On the grid is the #72 Ford GT40 of Bob Bondurant and Richie Ginther. Bob is looking over at the NART Ferrari 330 P2 of John Surtees (in car) and Pedro Rodriguez. Both men are looking at each other and you have to wonder what they were thinking (Join Randy below in submitting a possible caption for what these drivers might be thinking or saying to each other). The GT40 would finish third and the Ferrari was a DNF due to a busted axle. Fords would finish 1-2-3 in this race. DIS photo courtesy of Ormond Beach Memorial Museum.
