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.

Big Daddy Don Garlits Blowover
Big Daddy Don Garlits has this nasty blowover at the 1986 NHRA Summernationals at Englishtown to be the first driver ever to do so. He stunned the crowd and everyone else when his Top Fuel Dragster lifted toward the sky and fliped over backwards then headed toward the start line.





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.

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
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.

Thanks for watching!





SURFS UP: THE SURFERS DRAGSTER
The Surfers top fuel dragster fires up. After 6 years "THE SURFERS" Top Fuel Dragster recreation was completed by Andy & Ron Marocco of DRAG CITY. Many believed that it wouldn't get done, but we proved otherwise.





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.... 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.





Freight Train fires up at 2008 CHRR
Legendary twin engined gas dragster the Freight Train fires up in the pits. While it doesn't have the cackle of the nitro cars, the "whomp" of 16 cylinders of small block chevy and the cloud of blackie carbon is pretty awesome...not to mention the engineering feat of linking and synching two V8s is a neat deal. One of the few gas dragsters that made top fuelers nervous when running for Top Eliminator.
