    Over 700 pictures from the mid 70's of events at the Fairgrounds, Lemoore NAS and
    Madera Airport. You'll also find pictures from local TSD rallys

    Thanks for posting Ric, lots of great memories watching my dad compete at the fairgrounds in his Fiats. On a side note, does anybody know what happened to the modified red Fiat 850?

    WOWEE! You were an excellent photographer back then already. It's great you saved these for posterity and now for all to see instead of being in a box somewhere. Although I did not autocross back then, just looking at the first page, I think I recognize some of the cars and people from my TSD days. Very good, Ric!

    Where were the jets? I'm thinking Lemoore but I see hills in the background.

    Also;;;; Interesting looking trailer.

    Cool Fun

    Ric, really cool photos from it looks like the 1970's. Most of the people we run with nowadays were not even born then. Great to see. Was that you in the middle of the stage?

    I'm wondering what was the "point" of this picture? https://www.flickr.com/photos/438129...7662236720797/

    There were a few shots that looked like Pleasonton as well.

    Great photos Ric! Anybody else notice all the Prepared and Modified cars running in those days? What ever happened to all those cars? Perhaps rusting away in the back yard.

    I thought the same Steve. People get old and worn out but the cars can be rebuilt.
