STOCK CAR RACING HOME MOVIES
I have my fathers old home movies of stock cars and sprint cars racing and warm ups at FLEMINGTON SPEEDWAY & OLD BRIDGE SPEEDWAY IN NEW JERSEY. Also a DEMO DERBY at FLEMINGTON. These old bridge speedway movies were taken back when Mike Garbacks father had something to do with the track I am told. Some of the cars were Don Stunfs 2,Jack Harts car and many others that I don't know.The movies are not sound but I think they are 8 mm. I don't know anything about movies.Just that my father did them way back.I don't have anything to play them on now. 2 years ago we watched them when I had his projector but I sold it. I have 4 reels here. They are nice and clear. The movies from Flemington are when the wooden walls were 2 boards high. That was when the people would sit up in the trees and when the tree got hit the people would fall out like apples. Some of the cars in the movies from Flemington are Les Farleys 808,Bob Halls 44,and many others. There is lots of action and these are the real race cars with real bodies, Not like these cars today made out of flat sheet metal and all look the same. I hope somebody thats into these car takes these movies and puts them on a CD.
