Most of these photos are in the pits
Lots of Anglias were there...

Can't wait! Thanks for sharing!
TEXAS WILLYS GASSERS WERE THERE IN FORCE...
More Gasser pic's coming...
Wow great stuff blackrat40. I hope that we can help you identify some of the cars and drivers. Lots of great gassers so far and some cars that I have never seen pictures of.
These are from the Caddo Mills Dragstrip thread and I wonder if it is the same car. The car is from Denton Texas and is an A Gas 37-38 Willys Coupe with pictures taken a few years earlier.
More Texas Gassers...
More pic's are coming...stay tuned!

Some Black And White's From The Spectator Stands...
It's really great to see photos and cars I've not seen 20 times before on the interweb. Good stuff!!!
Thanks for posting.
very Cool - Thanks
I can't say for sure. The white Willys looks like one that I think Wayne Calvert ran at Caddo back around 1960.
Maybe Wayne just sponsored it, I don't remember. Wayne still does engine balancing in Denton (in his 80's).
I used to frequent Caddo when I was a teenager in '58-60.
Very cool, thanks for sharing these.
Glad you enjoyed them!
You did good Mickey..Thanks a lot...
Great piece of history, thank you for taking the time to put them up on here.
Btw, still can't beat the look of a Willys with a Ford dump truck hood scoop!
This one is Bobby Knighton's car outta Houston. I work with his nephew, Bobby still lives in Houston.
(Corrected to Knighton, which I meant, thanks wbrw32)
Here is a link to another thread on this one:
Here's another shot of Bobby's 5-window
3dnsouth....Excuse my correction..I think you mean Bobby Knighton....Bobby Langley was a dragster guy and ALWAYS lived in Everman,Texas
