    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.

    They match a coffee cup I got as a gift years ago

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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….

    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...

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

    Honestly I have no idea. I think I opened it when I first got it but haven't since. Next time I'm in the basement I'll get a shot of it.

    Bought this poster at an auction back in spring. Excellent condition. Looks great in this poster frame. Found a website with lots of open wheel race results. The dates make it either 1968 or 1969.
