    Screen captures are from Send Me No Flowers, with Rock Hudson and Doris Day, 1964. I grabbed them a couple of years ago for, well, I forget why. But they fit the topic, so it was worth it, lol!

    No, father and son. The Willy's was used in a furniture re-upholstery business.

    Hello,

    This photo was taken at the 2nd annual Bakersfield Smokers March Meet in 1960. Don Garlits brought his Swamp Rat with a new Giovannoni Cam. In 1959, Garlits was still running an Isky cam in the first East vs. West drag race meet. Within a few months, this storyline popped up.


    “You don’t see many color photos of Swamp Rat I and not many photos of Garlits' early cars that didn't have an Isky cam in them. You can see that SR I is sponsored here by Giovannoni Cams. Ray Giovannoni offered Garlits the unheard-of sum of $10,000 to run his cam in 1960 ("Ray was a crazy man, had lots of money, and hated the West Coast," explained Garlits). Garlits gave Ed Iskenderian the right to match the fee, but Isky passed.”

    Jnaki

    In March of 1960, Garlits showed up at Bakersfield with Art Malone in the seat and a Giovannoni Cam Logo on the side of his FED.

    Hello,
    Sorry to say, in 1960, Garlits lost in the early rounds. This is the final race between Art Chrisman and the eventual winner, Cyr & Hopper. (both So Cal locals) I was crammed into the chain link fence trying to get a good position for the final race.

    That episode was a nightmare, as tons of other people also wanted to get to the chain link fence to view the final. Prior to the final race, this bubble headed blond girl kept sticking that beehive hair out beyond the fence, interfering with some of my movie filming. I was trying to get a shake free film of the final elimination race.

    For my brother and me, it was a historic event of major proportions. Many early drag racers made their names here at the Bakersfield Smokers March Meet in 1960.

    This footage also has the big time racing from the (three months earlier) drag race at Riverside Raceway in Dec 1959. The big East vs West meet.

    There are other short films from this era on the J Naki channel of YouTube.com
