Brent Harris 33 Willies Gasser at 2007 Thunder
Brent Harris in his 33 Willies Gasser at 2007 Port Alberni Thunder In The Valley. A couple burnouts and clips from both Saturday and Sunday. Duane Grosart's 55 Chev is a beauty too. The 55 wasn't running great as these two rivals, who are best friends, have at it.
Again, thanks to Carl Sexsmith and Phil Anker for the photos from the 2006 event used in this 2007 video footage.
Gassers At 131 Dragway In The '60s
This is an updated version of my video "Drag Racing In The '60s part 3". I made that video about three years ago and since then I have upgraded my photo and video editing software. I have been able to clean up the photos and video a bit and I added sound to the movies that I extracted from some recent video I took at the drags. I thought it would be fun to add some sound to the old 8mm movies. I also made it widescreen. The soundtrack is me jammin' on some Booker T and the MGs and CCR.
Drag Racing - Pacific Raceways 1963
Video from the Mothers Day drag races, May 12th 1963 at Pacific Raceways in Kent, Washington. This was shot by a friend of my parents, Tex Steere, who asked me to help convert it for him and has graciously allowed me to post it on YouTube.
Vintage footage of the 1963 Smokers Fuel & Gas Championships at Bakersfield.
Lions Drag Strip incredible Grand Premier accidents 1972
Season opening Grand Premier at Lions Drag Strip in Janaury 1972 marked the return of NHRA sanction to the world famous Wilmington/Long Beach, CA racetrack. Incredible clip is from Part 1 (of 3 part) video documentary "Lions - The Greatest Drag Strip", and shows the unusual amount of accidents that took place, thanks to veteran lensman Paul Sadler and Dave Kerr. Lions would close after its 17-year run just eleven months later.
8-71 Blown 632 running for one of the first times in my 1970 Monte Carlo.
Fuel Altereds - Gone But Not Forgotten
Pictures and movies that I took of some Fuel Altereds back in the '60s. The most evil handling cars known to man, the fuel altereds were banned by NHRA over 30 years ago. I was fortunate to get to see and photograph these beasts in action. If you are interested in the history of these legendary vehicles, check out these websites. They have hundreds of pictures (much better than mine) and stories of these brave men and their machines.
For the soundtrack I'm jammin on Bad Company's Gone Gone Gone. I hope you like it! Thanks for watching!
