RACERON1120 ....................................
On the previous page, you have two photos from the days of beach racing at Daytona Beach, Fla.
In the first one, of Jack Bowsher, #21, you can definately see the ocean, in the background.
The second photo, where the cars missed the turn, is the south turn, where the cars came off the paved road, onto the sand, Many just hit the turn too fast.
Southbound was the paved Rte. 1 and northbound, of the loop was the sandy beach. The whole loop was about five miles.
This was the birthplace of NASCAR. The last beach race was in 1958.

I never saw the beach races, didn't they have 2 divisions - hardtop/sedan, and convertibles at that time? Somebody posted a bunch of pics from the beach races, I'll see if I saved them and will post 'em if I can find them.

I met Jack Bowsher about 20 years ago when I stopped at their shop near Springfield OH. His son Bobby was running the #21 Ford in ARCA at that time. He and Tim Steele were ARCAs top guns in the early 90s. I think ARCA was still running some dirt tracks back then, don't know if they still are.

Yes, they had convertible races. They were considerably slower than the closed cars.

I have more that I will post in the future. Most of the pictures I have picked up at local swap meets, yard sales and post card shows. Sorry, I don't have any history on any of the photo's.

If I had my 'druthers, I'd take the G model Fort. Those planes are awesome, and the heroes that flew them even more so. Still waiting for wifey to buy me a ride in the Yankee Lady when she comes to the local balloon festivals.

I found this vintage photo of a 1934 Phaeton, just like mine, about a month ago. Check out the white-walls !

How about this dump-truck ? It must have gotten away from the driver.
