Do you own or know the whereabouts of a piece of UK Drag Racing History or just want info on a particular machine.

@ Torment. Pricey?? Hell NO, it was a Praktica LTL3, not sure what lens I had on at the time, the standard 50mm which was a Carl Zeis JennPlan, or the (I think it was a) Sigma 200mm. Likely Kodak 64 slide film, but I haven't even seen these pix in some 20 years. Hell, I'm enjoying them as much as anyone now Jon is scanning them and adding them to the site. Shame I cropped the nose-n-tail off the car in that shot, but it was a fully manual camera, and NO motorwinder them days. Even so......proud of these shots. Thanks Jon....enjoying seeing them again.

@ torment.
All, and without scavenging the whole house to make sure there isn't one escaped, but ALL my drag-race photos went up to Jon to go through. Can't honestly remember is there was, or was not any 'engine shots'. As I took piles of pix of all sorts them days, and was a 'Vauxhall man' myself, it's possible. Hope Jon finds them, if there is, or someone else comes up with some. Good to see the Chevette body back out again recently, LOT of memories.
