    I was posting on "The Ford Barn" about some drag racing a friend and I did in the early 60's at "Minnesota Dragways". There was a bit of interest, so I talked to my friend, and lo and behold, he had saved just about everything we had back "in he day". He sent me a bunch of pictures of our old car ('36 Ford running D/Altered), and more interestingly, seven newsletters that he received from Minnesota Dragways in 1962. Unfortunately these flyers are printed on "legal size - 14" paper, so it will be a pain to scan them in and the results will be hard to make sense off.

    Anyway, if there enough of you "old farts" from Minnesota back in those days, I'll take the effort.

    Are there enough of us guys out there that want to see this?
