San Fernando Raceway 1967 8 mm film (very poor quality)

Old home movie on 8mm film recording my Mustang and other cars racing at the old San Fernando Raceway in San Fernando California circa 1967. Sorry, no sound because the old 8mm film home movies were silent. Also the quality is very poor because it did not transfer well to video. But it is interesting anyways.

The Stone Age Man @ San Fernando Drag Strip #2
Here are some drag races happening at San Fernando Drag Strip in 1968.....The Stone Age dragster, with George Hutcheson driving, is making a pass in this video.....The actual Stone Age Man dragster has been found at Ventura College, sitting on display in the Automotive Shop, and is presently being restored to its full glory. The debut will be in October 2010 at the California Hot Rod Reunion in Bakersfield.....San Fernando Drag Strip was located in Los Angeles County, in the San Fernando Valley, and existed from 1955 to 1969.

SCCA Racing from Vacavalley in the Mid 1960's. Great Vintage film!
This was shot by an old co-workers father in (I believe) 1965. It's from 8 mm film and has no sound but the video is pretty cool. If you raced sports cars in Northern Ca. in the 60's, you might be or know these guys. Cool trailers they used in the day (Towing your car would be as hairy as racing it).

I was worried about my Big Boy running on the layout. I kept it in the box until I got the courage to see if it was to big for the turns. Just 2 minor adjustments and no problem. What do you think? How does it look?

"Smoke" Montage
Just some quick clips from a bunch of old movies I took as a teenager with my 8mm movie camera. I threw them all together and called the two hour long collection, "Smoke". I know the stuff's pretty bad, but if anybody would like a full copy just contact me with a message and I'll let you know all about it. Take care. Bill Pitts
