Here's a walk through the pits at this year's historic races. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_v7O7y3gM7A Most of my Dad's group is pitted together - you'll see them starting at about 20:40 in the video.

One of the first cars you see is number 99. That is a 1932 or 33 MG K3. It was driven by a 20 something kid. I believe his father also drives it and is passing the torch on to the next generation. For me, that is particularly cool, as most 20 somethings would prefer a car with a lot more muscle. He was also very fast, coming in 3rd or 4th in the class.

My dad's car shows up just a few seconds later - the red number 24. Dad has it decked out pretty much as Tazio Nuvolari was supposed to drive the car in 1934. Unfortunately, Nuvolari had to back out at the last minute due to some sponsorship issues. (Apparently, sponsorship issues are not all that new.)

The pair of Nationals I mentioned in the OP are a few more pits down the row, at about 21:40 in the video.

Pretty much every other kind of old race car you care to see will be somewhere in there. Enjoy!
