Here is the best of what I caught
Demolition Derby - Salmon Arm 2009
Bring it on. With out the pit crew that cuts, welds, rebuilds in record
time, these cars would be in the scrap yard.

Laura's Auto Sales - Demolition Derby @ Rocky Hill State Fair, East Greenwich, RI 1986
If you're from the Rhode Island area, you may remember the Rocky Hill State
Fair on Division Road in East Greenwich, RI. If you're from the Kent County
area, you know Laura's Auto Sales www.LaurasAuto.com in Coventry as well.
This very rare footage shows the highlights from one of the last special
years of the Fair before high insurance rates and greedy lawsuits forced
the Hamilton famliy to end one of the family favorites in RI. The Flea
Market at Rocky Hill fairgrounds still ran on Sundays for over a decade
more until the property was sold to Brooks Drugs ( who oddly enough was
purchased by Rite Aid) ending many a weekender's treasure hunting and,
extra income flow for many weekend entreprenuers.
Do you have a memory of the Fair or Flea Market? Maybe you bought French
Fries at Joe's? Clam cakes from the Chowder hut. Fireworks, (back when
people made their own descisions to loose a digit or two) 8 track tapes
from Frank the tape guy, or even the bargain priced pair of shoes (because
one was a size 5, the other a 6-1/2) Let's here your fond memory!
