It's great to see these vintage photos and it's good that someone labeled them so that we have more than just a picture and thanks for filling in the blanks for us. It's also great to see things come full circle with the new generation of builders.
This is by far the best thing I have thumbed through in a long time!
Hand drawn program cover from local Dallas artist J. Henry Shiels to the "Texas Drags" a Chaparrel Invitational event held at Caddo Mills Airstrip, Sunday August 19, 1951
Drawn on his wife's business letterhead.
I know where all the 32 Roadsters went! Great Thread! Has to be in the top 10 Thanks.
Elrod - That is great artwork. I've never seen anything done that nicely. The date is for the first ever drag races at Caddo Mills. Do you know anything about Henry Shiels? He must have been in the Chaparrals or done the artwork for them??
