My personal connection with Disney and the Daytona 500 is the many times I have gotten stuck in race traffic on my way down I-4 as I head to WDW.
We lived in Daytona when Amy was small. Speedweeks and Bike week trafic is terrible. I prefer to watch the Daytona 500 on TV.--DisneyDad
I love the older photos! brings back memories! I remember seeing that car on the boardwalk.
I love the old photos too! Got a bunch on 35mm slides I got to get converted to digital.Of course I like taking new pictures too! - Road Trip to WDW anyone?--DisneyDad
I remember that car! My sons still stop and drool over the cars parked throughout WDW. Thanks for sharing and for joining in the DWW Blog Hop fun!
Love the pic and racing! Have you had the chance to do the Richard Petty Driving Experience?
Never done the Driving Experience. I have some friends who have done the Experience at Talledega Speedway here in Alabama and they have said it was fantastic.--DisneyDad
LOL, this was still on film, nothing thrown away and I am not making the best face.
Yes, we all have lots of those photos since you didn't like to smile for a camera. ;-)
Hey it was the only face you had at the time - No smile --- at least not when a camera was pointed at you.--DisneyDad
Great pic! My husband would have been drooling over this car for sure :)
I'd love to see it again! A little drool is not bad.... a lot causes rust!! :-)--DisneyDad
Great Pic, Amy. I don't remember this car, lol.Thanks for sharing
A great old picture, as Ridge pointed out, from FILM.--DisneyDad
I wish that car was still sitting there. :)
It was a fun picture. Maybe they will bring it back one day.--DisneyDad
Love the Boardwalk!! So fun to see some older shots!
Thanks. I've got lots of old stuff. I try to post the older pictures here at Growing Up Disney when it's my turn for our Photo Flashback.--DisneyDad
I grew up in the Daytona area, great memories of Speed Week & Bike Week... though I admit, I have never actually been to a Daytona 500. I would always rather spend the time and money at Disney. Go figure. Thanks for sharing.
