    Stumbled upon the Sunshine Dreagstriop myself a couple of years ago. What a great place. Drag racing on a baking hot evening with a cold beer.

    Managed to catch a tee shirt fired into the crowd from some sort of rocket launcher. Happy memories.

    Thanks for posting.

    Re: Sunshine dragstrip, wednesday night

    Not to show my age but when I first went to Sunshine back in the late seventies the main attraction was a 1/4 mile dirt oval and Friday nights were wild! As Wayne says the Strip was 1/4 mile back then, I think that it started back from where it is now (the top end of it makes a T junction with the really busy Ulmerton Road!).
    The State bouught all of the land for a big road junction plan, they closed it all down immediately and built a Toll Booth for training purposes on the dirt track FFS! After a lot of street racing problems, they used to race on the long bridges which had the advantage of starting in Pinellas County and ending in Hillsborough County (different Police Departments). So after, I think, a couple of years the Drag Strip reopened.
    It's a little piece of real America, there's not a lot left!

    I do like the look of the gold/bronze 65 Chevelle. Certainly looks purposeful for a street car and one of my favourite body shapes too. Great pics by the way Rog. Roger.

    Yes, when we came out they were still working at the Garage on the left on the way out. There was a '65ish Tbird and an old English car outside. If I am by there again i'll take a couple of pics.
    It's amazing there are still loads of projects/junk laying around St Pete.

    Rog.
