  6. Ron Farmer was never owner of Mission Raceways.........it has always been owned by BCCCA of which Ron was a member and became Manager, at same time being a full time Fireman in Vancouver.........

    Sorry my mistake that's what I was told, I believe his first name was Ron? I can remember the Abby paper quoting him about the future of the track when the city wanted to close it and build condos or something. What year did they stop using the airport?

    Thanks 302 Great bunch of Jalopy Hotrods and Customs. Interesting start there with a banking Canadian Avro Jetliner built in Ole Malton, Ontario if I'm not mistaken. That narrator voice accompanied some of the Avro films as well. Some really cool stuff. wish we had that opportunity today.
