A woman from the gym I frequent presented me with some vintage racing memorabilia that I’d like to share. Definitely some cool stuff! Check it out:

A window into a different era. One That seems burned into my psyche even tho I was just a young kid then. Kind of like remembering the hits from the Beatles or the Doors at any moment, even tho I never hear them anymore.

Thank you for sharing those.

Thanks for sharing. They are so cool to see. Imagining right now just how cool would it have been to be there back then...
My pleasure! I too am intrigued by them. Interestingly, I am drawn to the people and ancillary activities as much as the cars. Infield living doesn’t look like it’s changed much over the past 50 years. My friend Judy who gave them to me said she would go to the races by herself because she was really into racing but none of her friends or family were. It makes you wonder how much other interesting racing history is sitting out there unnoticed by its possessors...

Thanks! I’ve got some more coming next week. Unfortunately, I was talking with my friend and she said: you’re going to kill me, but I just threw out a bunch of 35mm slides from vintage races...[emoji24]

Incredible photos! Now that’s real racing when men were men and seat belts were optional. But I gotta ask, what’s your relationship with this so called mysterious “Woman at the Gym” Kevin? Just kidding!

Haha, I tried to craftily word my post... She told me how she would travel to the races all by herself because none of her friends had an interest. I told her: If I were alive in the sixties, we’d probably would have hooked up... She got a good laugh out of that!
