Now the ’65 shots ARE impressive. Never before seen Black Arrow, Storm King, Ivo’s solid red Fueler, Beeline gasser, Flying Wedge Altered roadster, tons of gassers, altereds and a great close-up shot of T for Two. knew you’de ask…no Baby Torque or Tom Blake Coupe.
Hey get them up here so we can get them converted. I got more space in museum !!! Brian M.
Okey-doky…will weed out some shots from Connecticut Dragway and there are a number of duplicates of the same car-same angle. Also found some (not Many) ‘backyard family snapshots”. Don’t know these people …But the shots are of kids ,45 years ago !
HELP….Can’t find who sent these EVEN though I Googled his address “Downunder” and found his House !… In Scarborough ,just north of Perth. Postmark -Arizona ❓
Just in at ‘homebase’:
Arrived Australia Last Sunday. Did you receive the slides I sent? Were they any help?
……………Awaiting a reply for more info .
Wow… 200 slides…!!!
That’s gotta’ be big news around here.
May I suggest that you divide them up into two groups. One for 1965 and another for 1972. I will not be able to relate to the 1972 pictures.
There’s got to be an interesting story as to how these slides ended up in Arizona and the Austrailia link. Fill us in if you can.
Oh… we’ll lable Gallery 1965 and Gallery 1972,like we always do. If info avail.
Editting the collection …so far see New Black Arrow with Dover & Record holder lettering ,Beeline Willys ,Tommy Ivo, Tony Mone,Tons of Vettes, gassers and new cars Not in other collections.
Oh …Cool stuff on Storm King…shot of them running Black Arrow and others. Sending final collection Mon. To Brian for coversion to Digital …beautiful original Color .
Slides Done and on the way to me. AND Mystery Solved! Just got this from ‘Down Under” :
I was born and raised in Newburgh, New York. Dover was our home track. We would some times run up to Lebanon Valley, mostly ran Dover. I am pleased that you could use the slides. Do I have access to view album? I am retired and spend most of my time here in Perth, Western Australia. I attend the drag and the sprint car races. Motor racing is alive and well in Australia.
Cheers, Joe Mastrella ”
….Joe will register soon and be activated as ODF . then He’ll see ALL the Galleries…His Too! (soon)
