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

Vintage Drag Racing, 1959 AHRA Nationals (Part 1)
Footage of the 1959 AHRA Nationals. The very first car that appears in
this video is a brown '33 Ford that was owned and driven by Herb Hoover of
Kansas. It was the national champion of the A/Altered Class. It defeated
"The Lemon," a yellow/gold '33 Ford Coupe owned and driven by Jerry Ross,
Founder of Ross Chemical Inc." He finished runner-up, and went on to win
the AHRA Nationals in 1960 at Kansas City. Ross Chemical is the industrial
chemical division of Applied Chemical Specialties, manufacturer of
The 1983 NHRA World Finals marked the last national event for Orange County
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!

512 Road Race 67 Mustang @ Shelby Club Mini-Nats 08/08
My 67 Fastback Mustang
Again... This event was the first event with my new 3-link coil over rear
suspension that I designed. It worked extremely well and I expect it'll
get a tad better with a little more tuning. The front end now pushes real
bad - I'm assuming this is due to the spool in the rear end.
The spool worked quite well with the leaf spring suspension - but with the
rear tires in better contact with the ground the car wants to continue in a
straight line rather than turn in. The spool will be replaced before the
next event with a Half Tight DPI platinum LSD.
The miss shift between 6 and 7 was actually just an accidental shift into
neutral, so the 9k peak was just a free rev. The motor should be capable
of spinning near 10k with out trouble (not tested...) though it makes the
most power well before that.
