I have a picture I purchased in Ensenada a few years ago of a buggy leaving the starting line. It is from the early 1970s, maybe very late '60s as far as I can tell. The crowd lining the start line area all have their Sunday Best on. The way things were back then. This was an EVENT, show your best. Ever been to Hussongs' on locals night?
Funny, it was in 1972 that I learned about off road racing after my parents bought a Toyota Land Cruiser as a bribe to go to Jesuit high school. No, unfortunately I don't have much in the way of old video. My youtbube channel only has a couple of videos from an earlier Baja 1000. I hope to add some new video this year.
