Stuff we worked on in our parent's back yards in the early and middle 60's.
Had no licenses yet but that didn't stop us.
All were up and running by the time we reached legal driving age.
Rootie, is that Dayton or Salem for the sprint car picture? Nice field of cars and drivers.
Rootie will know for sure but it looks like the wave lap for the 1960 Joe James/Pat O'Connor race at Salem to me. If so, polesitter Parnelli Jones won the race.
Yeah, it is Salem 1960 but I don't know which race for sure. The J/O mem. looks likely though.
Interesting photo. Must be '48 with Agabashian in the ross Page and I believe the nose entering on the right of the photo is the new Kurtis chassied Bowes Winfield that Rex put on the poll.
Supposedly their baseball teams were pretty good.
It was, and then again, it wasn't. Check out the link. WVenfield listed, Its very interesting.
Your right, it is 48 and that's Mays in the #5.

RedlandMaggie, thanks for great pictures AND, with titles too! Being a displaced Oregonian, these picture remind me of home.
Yes it is.
The Crab Broiler was down by Cannon Beach (by the turnoff to Hwy 101), you may be thinking of the Crab Bowl on Barbur Blvd, the "new owners" moved it back to the old location from the old Denny's one, but alas, it is not anywhere near as good as the original, and it looks fairly decrepit when you drive by.
You are most welcome. I like captions, they help me fix a picture in time and place, I LOVE looking at old pictures. I've been going through this site http://www.ghostsofnorthdakota.com/ (I've not been to North Dakota, ever), and it is so cool to read all of the posts from old residents of these towns.
Tommy Luke's is still in business downtown on 12th in Portland. They are the nicest folks.
Somebody asked about the bomber in Milwaukie, OR back in the December pages - it came down in August to be restored - here's the article:
These kinds of photos almost got this thread shut down before.
Parking lot, Timberline Lodge, Government Camp, Oregon
Government Camp, Oregon 1920's
Although this photo is listed as Government Camp, the mountain looks too far away, maybe Parkdale?
