Porsche Racing Milestones, 356 to 962 Hal Thoms (C) 1999 ISBN 0-9631726-3-8
Nothing for GT1s, but the 956-962 section makes for interesting comparison with GT1s- same watercooled heads, similar engine compartment setup, very different systems setup. 200+ photos by Hal Thoms from the 1998 Monterey Historics, the 50th anniversary for Porsche, which was the featured marque that year. 128 historic photos are also included, which is a good mix: Modern, color, photos of the details of preserved, historic, vehicles. Color and black-and-white photos of the original vehicles, taken at their times of importance.
