    On a chilly morning in August of 1916 four men stood looking at the open hood of their car twenty miles south of Bend. The Hupmobile, a touring car built between 1909 and 1939, refused to turn over. Two days earlier they cracked the crankcase fording a river, and they feared the worst. As the morning warmed, so did the car and in short order, it started, and the group was on the road again. The four men were Charles Sholes, Martin Gorman, Rodney Glisan, and John Lee. Sholes was a founding member of the Mazamas and the only individual to serve four terms as Mazama President. Gorman was a renowned botanist. Glisan a world traveling lawyer. And Lee an authority on natural sciences and a pioneer of trail building around Mount Hood. All four men were ex Mazama Presidents.

    Great photos of the modifieds of the 50-60's. Dirt and pavement "stockers" weren't always what NASCAR fed the public and its still that way today at local circle tacks all around this great country today. As you travel all over the mid-west during the summer on the roads of America I can guarentee on a Saturday afternoon guys are still towing to their local tracks on open trailers. We do and we are in So Cal....

    That's Earl Motter crashing his midget at Fresno mid 50s with Johnny Boyd going by on the inside. Though he did some sheet time he survived intact and continued racing I believe.

    The Maxson champ car was the former Vita Fresh Meskowski car that Unser, Ruby, Rutherford and many others drove from 62 to the late 60s when Darwin Maxson bought it and put George Benson in it for a few races. Don't know what happened to it after that.

    The driver is me (about 5) in Dad's '54 Buick Special. Dad bought it new, but about 2yrs. later some paint below the side trim started falling off. Had that fixed and traded it in on a new '57 Belair Sport Coupe white over black. That's one I like to have now!!

    Gramp made his living as a hunting/fishing guide when my Mom and sisters were growing up. Mom said it was 12 miles to the main road and in the winter they had to use a horse and sleigh to get there.
