      I thought you would have pointed out that the flagman is about to meet his maker.

          I got no collections.
          Only memories.
          I use to watch races from Gardena with Dick Lane on the mike---Whoa Nelly!
          My dad received a yearly pass from Les Richter for RIR---he gave it to us...
          I use to get grinders from D'Elias and take them to turn 6 at RIR...
          Then the bastards turned it into a a mall.
          Then my baby bro loaded us in his truck pulling the 5th wheel to Phoenix and Vegas...
          Gawd we had fun...
          But one day, in Las Vegas. I decided that I did not care anymore, and I walked away...
          I think I have an ashtray, of RIR, with the old turn 9, but I am not sure...

            Does anyone have any info about this Midget race car? It’s about 6 inches long and 3 inches tall. I think it’s bronze. Kinda heavy for its size. Excellent condition. My uncle found it at a car part swap meet years ago. There’s a slot in the bottom that looks like it’s been filled in with some sort of epoxy. We thought it might have been a trophy topper. Pics to follow….

                Books. Racing books. Lots of them.

                All of the Hungness yearbooks, some in bits and pieces but complete. Some autographed.

                Working on Autocourse, very slowly. They show up in used book stores sometimes.

                When nothing is on TV, I always have a racing book. Probably no one will want them when I pass, but I enjoy them.

                  In the process of building 16x8 slot car track (good thing I bought the wood before the price hike). Currently setup as an oval and 1/8 scale drag strip. Vintage HO-1:64 cars and new AFX and AW. Big diecast collector of 1:18, 1:24 and 1:64 of Indycar, NASCAR and Mopars.

                    I like buying the old programs and yearbooks at IMS on Saturdays before the 500.

                    I brought one home and found Jimmy Clark.had signed it.

                    Another has Tom Carnegies autograph inside.

                    I'm not an autograph hound but that's just cool.

                            A few years ago a buddy and I went out to Moro GP practice. In the souvenir shop we bought Speedway labeled cigars and a Speedway lighter. I still have the lighter and the tube with label the cigar came in.
                            We enjoyed them out on an empty mound away from other spectators BTW.
                            It was the last year they had them I believe.
                            I shoulda bought an extra and left it intact.

                                These were my dads. I got most of his racing stuff. A couple family members took a couple diecasts for posterity but I got most of them

                                I think the first wife and I got him the Hudson Hornet for Christmas one year. No idea where he got the 43 cars.

                                I like owls too BTW
