Old Drag Racing Photos
Permalink  
 


Hi everyone:  As a kid I used to get to lots of drag races at Golden Horseshoe, Cayuga and Niagara Falls.  I took photos and ran across the photo albums the other day.  I don't really want the photos anymore but would be happy to mail them along to someone who might be interested.  They're not all the best but I do have some nice photos of some of the local racers as well as the US based visitors.  Please let me know how I can contact you if you want the photos.  Here are a few.

Pretty cool shots and a kind offer. One question. How come you are giving them away? How many do you have? I remember all of those cars, some nice racers.

Usually the conversation goes "I know I have the old pictures somewhere" and half the house and all the basement and garage are overturned and they still have not shown up!

Robert, very nice gesture.

I'll try to post the best ones here as time permits. Its been years since I have followed the racing and thought others might enjoy the photos more than me. It does bring back some nice memories. I can remember some classic races between The Funny Farmer and Hippie Hemi. At that time I think they were both record holders in their respective classes.

 Hello Robert.....wonderful pictures from your youth! I would be very much interested in being the next care taker of your old drag racing pictures. Many on this board and in the hot rod community in SW Ontario know that I have been a long time drag racing historian and have written and produce books for various families over the years. You can reach me by my cell 519-317-0283....thank you again for this kind opportunity.

I'm familiar with Cayuga and Niagara, but never heard of Golden Horseshoe. Where was it located?

Isn't this thread 4-5 years old?
