My anonymous friend sent me a note, and asked me to add this to the thread:

The one picture is of Alois Ruf, he happened to be visiting the Factory the one of the same days we were also visiting in May 1987. I had meet him and visited his Pfaffenhausen shop a year earlier. After we left Stuttgart we visited the RUF shop. It just so happened that was right after the Yellow Bird had won the first Road & Track high speed test. Alois took each of us out for a test ride in the Yellow Bird (YB) ...I think he only took the YB up to about 310K per/hour. Truly unbelievable, more incredible than the ride we had a few days earlier at Weissach test track with the Factory driver in the 959.
