Bedroom Finds

I'm moving out of my house so I'm packing up a bunch of old stuff. Found this in my room. It's the program for the 1974 US Gran Prix at the Glen. Thinking about framing it for fun but it's a really interesting read as the us gp was apparently the last gp of the year in the 74 season...looking up how it turned out now.



You guys ever find fun things like this left by your race happy parents?

That is such a sweet find!

Not as great, but I found an old poster at my parents' place from 1994. It has every single Formula 1 car that Ferrari made up until '94 - and it's still in pristine shape. I need to get it framed and shipped to my house.

I also found a home video of the 2-year old version of me trying to drive my parents' brand new E30 325i. I was crazy about cars before I could even say "BMW" properly. And don't worry, the keys weren't in the ignition. Really wish my parents had kept that car, it was such a beauty.

He bought a 1972 440 Jensen Interceptor and did a lot of engine work to it. He had it till the mid 90s.

The only thing I found from my parents was a collection of photos I wish I hadn't. What has been seen...

Although I found some pics of my mom from the 80s and I said "mom holy crap you were hot"

She didn't like the were part of it...

No, you were right. To this day when a girl is positioned in a certain way, I'll occasionally have flashbacks that kill the mood. I wouldn't wish that on my most hated enemy.
