These three pictures are credited to Bob Tullius. 

"Russell Tullius, Bob's son sent me some photos of the time when Mike Rothschild and his wife and I were on our way to LeMans by car from Paris, this is 1963. We stopped in a little town and bought food and then went into a forest and had a picnic."   Kas Kastner

Mr. Bob Oker 1957 Sebring.  "In Front".   He drove this car for 11 hours and 6 mins out of the 12 hours!  He was teamed with Ed Pennybacker. 

If you scroll down below in the thumbnails in row #5  find Bob Oker driving the #59 Morgan just ahead of #149 Big Ed Kretz in the #149 Triumph.  Later, Bob drove the #149 Nick Paster TR while wearing his #59 helmet.  In Row 12 see Big Ed Kretz in the #149.

 

Kodachrome image below is coutesy of Mr. Robert Johns -He took this  photo at the start of the 1957 event.  He and Mike drove #34 to a class win. The Record books are incorrect and will be changed.   You will notice that #33 is already moving and way ahead of the field passing the Ferraris.  # 34 Mike Rothschild is still buckling up.
