    Whoa. That?s a cool shot. I don?t think anybody here minds the fingerprint one bit.

    Is that a Toyota Hellica in the corner?

    I'm not sure what that is in the corner. I do have a better pic of the car in a different shot. Its taking me about 30 min per shot to clean up all the dust and other crap on the image. Needless to say, its a slow process.

    Its really kinda interesting to look through these pics and see all the changes that have happened both with the races, and with the area around Stead.

    For sure. Especially for those of us that we?re out there in the good ole days. I?d love to go though any old fenceline pictures and see if I?m in one as a kid. They seem to be pretty rare though. I sure do miss that barbed wire fence. Thanks for posting these. I appreciate your hard work.

    It is an AMC Hornet. For those old enough to remember a Kelvinator.

    Looks like Mike Brown flew into our local patch today.

    Got back from a 600 mile Nevada Social Distancing on/off road trip.

    Some stuff out there that reminds us of who we are and where we have been.

    Retirement is awesome.

    Good ?ol Clampers. I talked with one of the higher ups about marking the original Reno air race site but, it?s not really old west kind of stuff.
