    Hey Guys,

    I'm looking for the Camwinders of Colorado Springs, not sure if any of the original members of the 50's are still around, or how to get ahold of any current members.

    There was a Hill Climb event in Georgetown 1953 and 1954. Several of the Camwinders were there as competitors, Cotton Warren, Bob Reinfried, Tom Carroll, Major W. M. Martin, Doug Cimino to name a few.

    We are resurecting this event, I have been compiling pictuers and stories and would really enjoy getting in touch with anyone that is interested.

    This uniquely bobbed 1934 Ford was from the Colorado Springs Camwinders Club, owner/driver is believed to be Tom Carroll. Pictured here in Georgetown in 1954.

    The ’34 coupe of Major Martin typified the street machines that were entered. His club, the Camwinders of Colorado Springs, was just one of the Colorado Timing Association groups invited.
