I finally got my slide scanner. I've been dying for months to get a nice picture of what I was looking at. My passion, outside of learning about NASA history now, is muscle cars; building, buying and selling — particularly Shelby Cobras.

So when I looked through some of these slides, I got excited. Rita Rapp did quite a bit of stress testing: athletes, drivers, astronauts, etc. These are some photos of their work with the late Carroll Shelby's racing team in '64, the year they won Lemans I think.

Anyway, if you like what I put up in the future, please let me know and I'll put more of the same. If it gets annoying, let me know that too and I'll stop. By the way, this will be the only pics I share that aren't completely NASA related.

Very interesting stuff. Can't wait to see what NASA-related stuff there is. Please post more.
