I think you posted this one before. Any information on what transpired in my town 55 years ago that gave rise to this picture?

Wow! A school bus from Plainview in 1955 just turned into a Formula One racecar from Belgium in 1962!

1962 Belgian Grand Prix at the Spa-Francorchamp course. Belgian Willy Mairesse in a Ferrari is in a tough battle with Trevor Taylor in a Lotus. In the Blonchimont Turn the two cars came together. The Ferrari careened into a hillside and flipped catching fire. Mairesse was thrown clear of the wreck with his shoes and pant legs torn off. Although taken to hospital he suffered serious injury despite numerous scrapes cuts and bruises.
