    Default California 1000

    Take a trip back in the time machine courtesy of my father's home movies.....

    California 1000 at Mojave

    California 1000 at Brown Field

    I've never seen any film footage of these events. I was at the Brown Field race. Vivid memories even though I was 7 years old.

    In the absence of anything else, I'd say this stuff is fabulous !!! I hope you all like it too !!!

    HOLY COW!!!!!!!!!!

    Talk about close quarters take offs!

    Cool stuff. Thanks for posting.

    How did you digitize the movie footage?

    I would assume it's 8mm?

    What years where the Mojave races? I went with my Dad and uncle in the mid 70's. My uncle knew Dick Rutan through land sailing and got us out on one of the pylons. I was probably only 5 at the time but I can still remember it quite clearly.
