Does anyone have the old drag news papers that used to list results from 1967?

BRIAN is trying to track down a large stash of DRAG TIMES in Ct. IF Anybody has 61-76 Drag Times …older Eastern Drag News Or ?…Let us know….This kind of find would solve a LOT of Questions and help everything from History Page …Give Name Rememberances and more.
Isn’t all that stuff available on CD-ROM…???

Jack Redd of Drag Times says he sold all back copies to a guy that doesn’t reply to e-mails or phone back : http://www.goydaracing.com and doesn’t list on his site.

Gary & I had a collection of Eastern Drag News going back to 64, up to probably 68 or 69. Several years ago Gary gave a bunch of them to Mike Duffey ( old super stock/funny car collector). I haven’t seen the rest of them since w moved to Ky last year. Hopefully they made the trip, unlike it appears, our old photo’s didn’t.
I don’t know who posted that stuff where I changed to the color red… I didn’t… and I thought only Dino could do that.
I know that the west coast Drag News is available on CD, that’s why I thought of it.
