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.

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

I was born and grew up in Long Beach during this same time, my Dad and

More Cars in Traffic Northport NY Super 8 mm Movie Footage Early 1970's
Here is the last of the footage that I took of traffic from the 1970's when
I was in high school. More from Elwood Road and some from Pulaski Road near
Stony Hollow Road - notice the Opel Gt. And pause on the still frames of
cars parked at the Northport Train Station, an Edsel, a Corvair station
wagon - and more.
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.
