That's two different drag strips, isn't it?

The image was a little too fuzzy for me to tell for sure, but it looked like some of the road signs that would have indicated route numbers at the intersection might have had an outlined shape that would be like the shape of the state where it was located. The other signs seemed to indicate a US route.

It was difficult to tell, but could it have been a Missouri route sign? Can anybody else catch it?

Oh, and isn't it interesting to watch racing videos where all of the cars have steel wheels and some of them have wide white walls on all 4 wheels?

Friendly, drunken advice to anyone reading this who is into FILM and is UNtrained (like ME): watch the footage and SLOW the eff down with the camera next time you record!

Sweeping by so quickly at the cell-rate of FILM makes for a much less enjoyable presentation.

See you May 8th at Union Grove for the Chrome Czars drag day! Bring your movie cams!!

The dragstrip looks like it could be Santa Maria, CA we raced an A/Altered roadster there in 65 or 66. My Brother filmed lots of our Valley Roadsters (Tulare CA) runs on 8mm in the early 60's. How do I get them from 8mm to a digital file??

That was great.We need more 8mm's like that and we need to create a section for them.

The cars in the film had no front plates, that eliminates a few states on the west coast.
