    Rookie,
    that car in your first picture looks bad for the driver. That cable went through the cockpit and tore the steering wheel off. sheesh!

    Another interesting photo, Rootie. Thank you.

    They're all sitting on a big car but I see mostly midget drivers in the photo. I can make out Eddie Haddad and Swede Lindskog. I think I see Roy Russing as well.

    Are there any additional details on this shot? Thanks again.

    I know nothing more, I just figured it was a track promo shot, though the sombreros may be significant of something ??

    I don't know any more about that shot either, but I'm sure it didn't end well for the driver.

    Guy behind the counter was probably John Kretchmar, I used to buy many parts from him while building my roadster in 1962.
    Joe McClenden owned the business on Florence, then moved to Long beach on Willow for larger space.-----Don

    Seeing that name on the sign and knowing the proximity of Gresham (Oregon), I'm guessing there is a connection to the famous Latourell Falls in the Columbia River Gorge.
    I see that Joseph Latourell was a postmaster for the Rooster Rock area, another famous Oregon landmark that draws a lot of attention (wink, wink).

  21. there have been several pics posted of old bikes. all very cool. thanks. things were very different back then. bikers were true tuff guys. you had to be just to be able to ride those old machines. the road captain at that time was the leader who carried the guns, money, and drugs. now days they pick out which dairy queen to stop at. how times have changed.
     
  22. You are rightracer - x. And you had to be Abel to fix what you rode . Now they just have a cell phone . Blue

    Have you been to a Dairy Queen lately ? Some of the one's I've seen you should be packing a gun and at their food prices plenty of cash and I am sure if you talked to the guy in the back chopping the lettuce he could set you up with some drugs.....

    This one is a local car and still hits the streets but I just herd today that John ,the current owner and old friend, had a shop fire and some of his cars were destroyed I'm hoping that the latter is false information...[​IMG]
