. . . .Some of the best photos I've seen here. Thanks very much for taking the time to post all the photos. The poor old Outlaw Altered is still there. . . . maybe one day someone will save it. . . . . and maybe one day Adelaide drag racers will have a place to run hard again.

Great thread. My first meet was the '77 nats. Hooked. Then we rode our pushbikes from Tea Tree Gully to attend. Thanks folks- lots of good memories here.
