I am pretty sure theese are from the 1966 GSTA show.
The pics are probably from around 1970 or so. I owned the T-bucket in the first two shots and the show was the WOW (I think) Show in the Minneapolis Auditorium, judging by the Torquers CC display. Thanks for sharing the pics.
there were no date stamps on the photos and I remembered to to the Minneapolis GSTA show but year are many between then and now.
But thanks for the info.
I had a T-Bucket in the 1970 (now WOW) that was actually called something like Ray Farners Rod & Custom show, at the St Paul auditorium / now Wilkens arena? Too long ago...
I also have a different T-Bucket in the 1976 GSTA at the dowtown Minneapolis Armory. I "think" I was not on the main showfloow, but a different room off the main floor or downstairs? Again, to long ago.
Many THANKS for the photo's. Ahhhh memories!
Wouldn't that MAR 72 on the top of the photos mean March 1972?
Nice!! Do you have any pictures of the Mortel Brothers' 33 Willys Pick Up? Thanks, Bill
There should be more pictures in the attic just have not found them yet.
In the first pic to the right, is that Pete Petersons 40 deluxe convert?
Who's 34 on the left?
I believe the '40 on the right was Pete Olsen's (not Peterson) and the '34 Ford coupe belonged to Jim Alexander. If I remember right we had something like 12-15 cars in the big display and they were ALL driven into the auditorium... including the Finn/Manke/Ross AA/F dragster. Those were the days! JJ
On the rest of the photos in that box the date stamp is on the bottom.
They are from Minnesota dragways in 1965. I will post them another day.
