    The 70's and 80's were the worst, I lived in Hartford at the time and I remember dreading any trip that went through NYC. It was a real pest hole, I remember riding the bus to D.C. and stopping in Port Authority, eye opening and frightening. I recall all kinds of unsavory characters there, the "plainclothesmen" were so easy to spot, the creeps would retreat for a minute and then come right back out like cockroaches. Aggressive bums demanding money and drug dealers, I just kept moving and caught up to the cops keeping them within sight.

    The late Mike Sorokin of "The Surfers", Amarillo 1966. The team of Skinner, Jobe & Sorokin sold their entire operation over Labor Day weekend of 1966. Skinner and Jobe left racing altogether but Mike began driving for other owners and was killed on 30 Dec 1967 at Orange County Raceway when a clutch explosion cut his car in half.

    Gary Gabelich The Blue flame
    upload_2017-6-22_8-28-24.png
    That was 1970
    Hello,
    Gary Gabelich set many records in his lifetime in various race cars. I was able to film one of his earliest race cars at Lions Dragstrip. This was the "blue altered" from Gary Gabelich in 1960: He must have had a like for the color/word Blue...
    Jnaki
    He was also filmed racing when we went to the Bakersfield Smokers March Meet in 1960. I am proud to call him my late, friend...

    L.A. Auto Show Fire of 1929

    March 5, 1929: Fire destroys four large tents holding the Los Angeles Auto Show. This panorama, made from two separate prints, was published the next day in the Los Angeles Times.

    In a page one story, the Los Angeles Times reported:

    Fire starting from a smoldering cigarette broke out at the Los Angeles Auto Show at 4:10 p.m. yesterday, and a half hour later the $1,250,000 display at the corner of Washington and Hill streets, housed in four huge tents, was a mass of smoking embers, charred wood, blazing rubber and twister (sic) steel. The loss is covered by a blanket insurance police, officials of the show stated.

    The flames originated, according to investigators, in or near the display of the Monocoupe Company, in the northeast corner of Tent No. 2, just in rear of the offices of the show, and near the restrooms…..

    When the fire was discovered it was a small red trickle leaping up the hangings to the top of the tent. The flames soon burned a hole in the canvas and the wind whipped the blaze to a fury and it leaped from tent top to tent top.

    Firemen, stationed at the show, made a futile attempt to halt the blaze with the use of the extinguishers scattered about the four tents, but found themselves powerless in the first few moments.

    Approximately 2500 spectators were in the four tents when the call of fire was sounded, and there appeared to be no stampede to reach the exits….

    Light explosions, as gasoline tanks burst on account of the heat, and heavy tires ignited, adding a light hazard to the attempt of the firemen to move some of the cars from the fire.

    The Times reported that one electrician “suffered severe burns.” Two firemen with burns were taken to a hospital. Several other firemen were treated at the scene.

    On March 8, the Los Angeles Times reported an electrical wire short circuit was the cause of the fire.

    Just one day after the fire, the Los Angeles Motor Car Dealers’ Assn. reopened a smaller version of the auto show at the Shrine Auditorium.
