Well wrong place for this once again. DUH!
The Forum and classifieds look so similar it's to easy for an old fart like me to post in the wrong place.
It would be nice if the printing were in another color say like red in the classifieds so you would know straight up you were NOT in the Forum when posting. Yes I know you could look up at the header, tell that to my fingers that are all to eager to hit SEND.
Well gee Jay: I thought you were advertising spare parts you had laying around!
I thought it was today's Indy race.
Easily done Jay, cool pic!
Wonder if anybody came out of that alive!
It happened May 1, 1939, caption from original article: "At pretty little Santa Rosa, Calif, last week, 8,000 fun-loving rustics sat in the grandstand of the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, watched 46 local jalopies rattling round & round the trotting track in a 100-mile "Tin Lizzie Derby."
On the 80th lap, in front of the grandstand, two cars traveling at 50 m.p.h. locked wheels. A third car, trying to avoid them, caromed into a fourth. Before the crowd could let out a collective scream, 19 cars had piled up (see cut). Eight of the drivers were rushed to a hospital. None died."
