Anybody notice in a few of the photos, the hauler of choice in the day???? Flatbed trucks with tire racks.......a little different than today???? I'd almost bet the thefts during that day and age aren't what they are today either. Things are just different now.

Thanks for the piks Kurt. I was running a limited modified during this era but always hung a board on the front and served as a push truck for these events. Great fun to push off the likes of Opperman, Boyd, Croushere, McCloud, and my fave Gary Patterson!! Lots of experimenting with top wings and side boards on the nerfs. Loved the ramp trucks to, everybody knew what you were all about going down the highway.    AL

Curt, I do recall the incident but did not see it happen. Do you know where the airplane powered chopper was built?  I ran into a fellow biker up at the satsop towers that was building a custom bike of this style several years back? wondering if it might be his.  AL

Jeeze Curt, you would have to post an avatar that dredges up old memories. I don't know anything about the engine in the bike, but the tail with the #19 in the background belongs to an AD-Skyraider. It had a 3350 cu.in. 18 cyl. radial engine. Can't tell what design the AD is but I spent about 500 hours in the back of an AD-5Q staring at an electronics counter measures (ECM) screen looking for radar signals back in 58-60. Yeah, some people say I'm still in the dark.
Wouldn't even take a stab at the cu.in. on the bike but the pots are pretty small compared to the 3350. At least the torque shouldn't be a problem. Gonna steal the photo and send to a buddy that was with the Cossacks for 30+ years.
Loved the old Elma shots. Yeah, I remember the Mazda roll over and watching the passenger come what looked like half-way out of the sun roof before dropping back in. Eldest son and I were just talking about that a couple of months ago.
Ok, back to the car photos............

I met with Chip Clark earlier today and he gave me another handful of old stuff to use here. Including some great photos I have a 1965-66 Sky Valley yearbook with some top 10 pics with info from 1965. I will post some of the photos and then some of the yearbook at a later time. I wish that others would chime in here and participate in this with comments or pics of their own. Must be a different crowd than what we had on Hedges deal......:?.

Curt, I know i must sound like a broken record but...I love the old pic's your posting!

In the late 60's there was a purple 45 ( i think thats the number) with lots of chrome & polished aluminum racing @ Sky Valley. It seemed like just about every night he'd roll it in turn 1. I think he won best appearing car a few times. Do you have a pic of that?

The baddest Super Modified ever built. The famous Jim Tipke built 4 wheel drive car of Tom Sneva out of Spokane, WA.

I kinda remember the car.....but for the life of me I can't think of who's it was. I don't think I have any photos......I'll have look to make sure.

 Sad pictures of the demise of Sky Valley, CurtK...but at the same time they bring back some great memories.  Just a shot in the dark, but isn't that Chip Clark in the background of a couple of them? Cool seeing the DeBob's Oval World truck in a couple pictures also!
  "sky Valley" lived on a little bit longer than the track itself did.  A year after it closed, my brother and I went up to Monroe to pay homage to the track.  There were several stacks of the old plywood pit boards molding away on the front stretch.  We appropriated about 10 of the ones from our favorite heroes of the day.  They ended up lining the outside of our oval track in my parent's back yard where we raced our motorcycles.
  I don't know whatever became of all of them, but if Jim Brill is reading this, your pit board was destroyed when my youngest brother went through it on a Hodaka 90...straight into the neighbor's yard where a woman was sunbathing.

I tried this in a smaller size but it was really hard to read...especially for old guys. Hopefully this will work.
