Here's some stills from my collection I finally scanned in today.

My car, Hugo in the show (same in my avatar, driving it today):

Irony at it's finest:  Steve Brower's show car, I took the pic of the interior because I liked it.  Met him later and bought it when he gutted it to make his racecar.  It's now in my car still today (see my dyno video on the engine build thread in my sig from yesterday).

BOR - May, 1982.  I shot Ray Vallero and Gary Berg's run, but didn't meet Ray until the following month when I burned up my 1300 stock engine in Hugo. (which is the motor in the dyno vid yesterday)  It was bracket racing and I'm sure that Ray will point out that is the only reason Gary is ahead of him...

I must have liked this interior, I took 3 pics of it.  Wink

Okay, I'm getting some vhs vids online... A VHS to DVD converter software for Mac is on my Xmas list.....

Anyhoo, these are from BOR XV. I will work on some more later...

Part 1 consists mostly of the gathering and cruise to the event, LOTS of cars and maybe some faces that people will recognize and identify? Starts out with the plane at the track, didn't the owner of the raceway used to fly in?

Part 2 gets in to the part in the pits, same event.

Show and swap/vendors. Back when the show was against the fence of the staging lanes. Racing starts at 6.00. Warming the tires at the box seemed to take longer since not many had line locks. Smile The wonderful Rick Mortensen announcing at the track!

BOR 1985 - Part 5

Duane Pizzo's dragster wrecks early in this video. Also, at 10.00 is a DD silver bug driven by Laura Kendall (videographer Mark's wife) that was in Ray's stable. And then Lynda's bus is up. Ahhh, back when he had 4 cars at every race...

WOW!! It's cool to see all the Race VW's that inspired me to build faster VW's......I see Dave Folts dragster (built my first Rhino Cased gear box around 1982) & seeing Steve Tims fiat launching (an Iconic racer based near where I grow up in LA, and who's race cars I grew up seeing at his shop in Bell, Ca 80's)....great footage!!

I don't know if I like the dash with the massive but tiny screened TV or the one with the dedicated spot for the equalizer more.
