Default photos of old school offshore boats

I was on www.superboat.com this week watching the offshore races at key west. They have some old videos from the '80s and 90's that had some awsome boats like "jesse James" "Systems Cougar Cat" and "popeyes". Does anyone know where I can look up photos of these boats? I can't seem to find many photos on the web???
Thanks,
chris

Thanks for the reply. This is what I was lookng for. I found a few websites that sell dvd's of the old offshore races but they want about $100 each... I like the "systems" cat and the "jessie James" cat from Chris Craft from the early 80's.

Hi Tom and Mart, unfortunately the amg cigarette is an abandoned project, her new owner, filippo, offered it to me but i really wanted a big hull. It's still for sale (only hull) with or without arneson drives, it also has two trims with idraulic mod.
