I have some old 1970's NORRA Baja 500 pictures I took during the years before and after we built and ran the the Cal Poly Pomona Baja Taxi in 1971. I used my 35 mm Konica 85-205 zoom camera and took all in Kodak Ektachrome 35 mm slides, so they have retained colors pretty well over the years. I have recently seen some of these pictures show up on internet websites such as Pinterest. I have no problem with sharing them so others can enjoy the BAJA OFF ROAD RACING memories they captured. Many years ago I made them available to Off Road Racing interested parties I knew and specifically sent some to Parnelli Jones and Willie Stroppe for their history files. Particularly amazing is the Big Oly overall win in 1973 Baja 500 after PJ & Bill Stroppe rolled multiple times! Love that set! In case you have not seen them, I'll post a few here so you can also see and enjoy them.

Looking forward to going back to run the NORRA BAJA 1000 in 2021 to celebrate our 50th year anniversary Cal Poly Pomona Baja Taxi run in 1971.

Hope you enjoy the moments and memories I captured in these pictures............... Pete Sigwardt, Cal Poly Pomona Baja Taxi Co-Driver in NORRA 1971 Baja 500

Pete - what's old is new again! I have a bunch of these photos in my files/folders that I bought or got from you years ago and I wasn't able to remember where I got them. You even photoshopped me into a photo or two as I recall. Thanks for sharing these again!
