I see lots of great photos posted by in our RR photo site by Kris Crider of the Ponce Inlet North Turn Parade on the Beach Saturday. I suspect more from others will be forthcoming. Here is some local Daytona coverage of the event from the Daytona Beach News-Journal. You can click on the photo link in the story to see lots of cars. I printed one photo below the story post of a car that looks vaguely familiar for some reason.
Next up for racing history buffs in Ponce Inlet is "Beach Racing Day at the Lighthouse" from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday. At 11 a.m., Ray Chaike will share stories about NASCAR racing in the 1950s. At 1 p.m., William Lazarus is presenting "Flying Sand, Crashing Cars and Oncoming Tide: Racing on the Beach in Daytona."
That event's included with the price of admission to the lighthouse ($5 for adults, $1.50 for children).
Thanks Dave, I was very pleased to see the picture of the now pink # 38 Bell & Bell 36 Ford which is my old # 14 dirt car and the # 20 1935 Chevy coupe which is my current car. Great looking rides all.
In fact, a third car of mine ,The # 73 Chevy 1935 Chevy Coupe now owned by the Long Island Flash Richie Gomes will be there tomorrow.The other car in the photo, a historical 1951 Ford is owned by my friend Jim Kaserman. the photo is by Jim Jones photography
Great looking car. A big shout out to all the RR guys/ Bell & Bell Folks who made the long tow down for the parade. I saw Bobby and his entourage in South Georgia just before noon today as I returned from South Carolina on I-95.
Thanks so much for posting these great pictures, Hope Nascar people realize that the fans still love the good ole days and start paying attention to who got them where they are today.
Forgot to ask, Bill....
Did the wonderful folks who rolled back time and opened the beach remember to roll back gas prices to around $.299/gal. or so?!
lol, Great question my friend, No they did not. In fact the 110 octane put into the #20 car for the parade was over $8 a gal.. ouch.
Great Pitchers Thanks
