Friday Fotos!

Pontiac NY

My Mom and Dad’s favorite tree and oh, by the way, their new car! A sleek looking 1949 Pontiac Chieftain coupe at a park in New York City in the early 1950s. I’m not sure which one was responsible for the photo gaff but its a great shot anyway.

Happy SUNday! – Beach Bums

My mom’s friends from around 1941 or so. What a bunch of characters!

My best guess would be that this is in Far Rockaway, New York. All pics were taken by my mom with her trusty Kodak.

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by! – Chris

Central Florida Dragway – 1972

A few found images from a quick trip I made to the track back in 1972. I believe these were taken with my Yashica TL Electro-X on Kodak Plus X Pan and developed by myself. The original negatives were in horrible condition and this is the best that my humble photo editor can make them.

“Vintage” funny cars of the day.

Mart Higginbotham’s Vega body funny car – it could be a Camaro body but I don’t think so.

The Central Florida Dragway was located just east of Orlando off of SR 520 west from Cocoa Beach. It’s still in operation today.
