        I really like the variety of shots you are sharing here.

        Such cool stuff.

        Out of curiosity what did you shoot your shots with?

        Your posts have got me to start thinking of dusting off my boxes of 35mm slides from the late 70s - mid 80s.

        Be a nice project for snowy day this winter.

          Another historical racer that needs to be brought back.

          Even if only for trophy laps so fans and future fans can at least see and hear her in person.

            Since I almost went to that event when I was just turned 13 (in '64) I'm fascinated with anything from the event.. were you there???

                      What a nice pair of 38s, always nice when they come out to play.

                            Well sir, if I have never before thanked you for your presence, please allow me now to thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing Reno Air Races history here!

                            I'm sure you've heard my tale of woe where my 13 year old enthusiasm waned after looking at the event from the top of the last hill almost made it out on my three speed bike back in '64 when I was 13 living in the suburbs just past Greenbrae Shopping Center (going toward Pyramid Lake)

                            This has fed my fascination wondering what I might have seen and experienced had my buddy and I braved it and let gravity pull us down the hill we had just climbed, toward the circling glittering dots rounding the pylons below... at the time, we knew not what we had missed by not wanting to pedal back up that darn hill! But we had run out of water and stamina and if I remember correctly, school started the next day, or, had already started and we had to be there early...

                            Anyway, sorry for drifting ! It's just that I was.... there... just not... "there" and I suppose that's what has fueled my passion for all of this after all!

                            Can't wait for September!

                              PS! I just required my second to last laptop which has the necessary expansion slots (no longer available, that I can find) to add cards so I can read my SCSI drive array where all of everything that was not on the laptop and my "recent" (probably three years old) backups that went swimming with the fishes last year... can't find an emoji that has a dombass beating himself on the head for putting his laptop in the "basement" of a recently launched boat!

                              ANYWAY, HOPEFULLY I can access about a three year old backup, plus all of my old stuff!

                              Reservations made, GSR RV park, have to have hookups, small pets that don't do well in baking motorhome!
