I have a few oldies myself.




Here is the similar pic I had in mind. I guess I only had one but thought I had two. I'm pretty sure it's the same track, with the same hill & fence in the background.



Here's a link to a larger version:

Miss do you know the name of the track where this pic was taken?

Good Time Park

aka Fiddler's Green.

The last year of the Hambo at Goshen was 1956 (same year Bill Cane and Al Saunders died).
