We had a closed down strip in our town for a number of years. We used to get hunderds of people and many cars out there. We were trying to organize something there, but the town and the owners of the land didn't want the hassle.

One day they came in with bulldozers and tore the place up.

That was about 1980. Years later, a candidate for mayor came knocking on my door, canvassing for votes. On his pamphlet he listed how he helped to close down the dragstrip back in 72. Needless to say, (I chased him off my property and let him know how I felt ................

This is a pic of my 55 at the old abandoned strip, note the "human Xmas tree"
