Racing my mustang Lions Dragstrip Willmington (Long Beach) California 8mm film from 1967

Racing my Mustang at Lions dragstrip in Willmington (Long Beach) California in 1967. Taken with a 8mm film home movie camera. Pardon for the poor quality but it is enjoyable because of the vintage. No sound from a 8mm film camera back then.

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.





Return To Lions
Lions Dragstrip





Irwindale Raceway, Irwindale Ca 1968 home movie.
This has several funny cars from the late 60s era. It was taken with an old 8mm home movie camera and the film did not hold up well over the years and it was a very crude transfer from home movie to digital. But car enthusiest might enjoy seeing the old funny cars.





Lions Drag Strip incredible Grand Premier accidents 1972

Return to Lions Drag Strip Long Beach California 2008
This is the third year of featuring restored dragsters that have run the 1320' Lions Drag Strip in its hey day... This video, typical of going to a drag strip, despite John Ewald telling everyone to stand back, you never get to see much when they display cars this way. Typical of the drag strip, all the vehicles require too much support, they stand around the car and block the view, especially when it is running.... At the CHRR in Bakersfield, the Cacklefest is blocked by a bunch of folks standing at the concrete wall on the track blocking the view to the grand stands as if the concrete barrier wasn't enough....I have been going to the drags since I was a youngster and it seems the problem is no one can stay seated for a run and your typical day at the drags to this day takes on a Jack in the Box atmosphere.... I guess that is the way it is.....Anyway, the City of Long Beach Chamber of Commerce puts on a nice event and I hope it continues into the future.

Santa Pod Raceway BHRA Meeting Whitsun 1966. Vintage dragsters having fun!
An historically important film of one of the earliest meetings at this British drag strip. The cars look a bit tame by today's standards but the variety of machines are much greater than of latter years. Look for the old Rolls Royce with a Jag engine and the early sling shot style of the full race machines. 'Run what you brung' really meant just that. Did any viewers attend that meeting or am I the only one left? It is shot on 8mm Kadachrome film long before the miracle of digital video had been thought of. I paid £75 for that camera in 1963 and it took me two years to pay it off on hire purchase (remember hire purchase?). No credit cards in those days! As a skilled mechanic I was earning just £12 a week and drove a 1936 Morris 8 to work each day. The good old days? Some of them were!
