Dean, paid Gold members can post unlimited photos that are kept within the TC system here. You can also post unlimited photos using outside hosting sites and then just putting a link to those photos in your posts here. Read thru the link in my signature for more details and for questions about how our site operates you can ask in our SITE section.

Also, keep your photos around 880x660 in size so folks wont have to scroll side to side or up and down to see the whole photo.
Welcome to Team Camaro as well.

Re: Dino From Dover Drag Strip checking in!

Hi Dino, I have great memories of Dover watching my brother race his Henry J back in the late 60's and early 70's (there is a picture of it on your website and he still has the car). I would have liked to have talked to Fred, he was a big help to me in the late 70's. Fred knew things back then that few people know today about racing. Anyway I'll try to make the race next year, Ron.
