Great times, indeed! We who saw Baja before pavement robbed her of her innocence are indeed fortunate!

Early 1960's


OK, not Baja... but shows how the beach was important to my parents and I growing up! This is our 'backyard' in Del Mar, California (3010 Sandy Lane)...


That's my mom and our Samoyed 'Santa Claus', my first dog growing up.





I still like playing in the sand! Mostly in 4WD, but sand castles are fun, even as a grandfather, now! My posse always included pretty girls! LOL

Wow that's a heck of a location in Del Mar. Beautiful to set out there with a nice drink and watch the sun go down or watch the girls walking up and down the beach.

Right! Well, my dad loved surf fishing and it was perfect. He had flood lights pointed out so he could night fish as well. Corbina was our diet! The beach house was the first one as you entered Del Mar southbound from Solana Beach on Hwy. 101. We lived there from 1957 to 1964. There is a newer, bigger house on that lot today, plus the big rock barrier in front placed after the El NiƱo in '83 or ?

Ensenada, the day before the race, July 1974


SCORE BAJA INTERNACIONAL











The very first SCORE Baja race would go on to be a total success and the start of 45 years of Baja racing by the Mickey Thompson founded organization.

Walker Evans at Mike's Sky Rancho checkpoint




A pit mechanic hopped in and the co-driver got in back so Walker could discuss the truck as they drove to their pit. I believe Walker was racing a Stroppe Ford truck in the '74 Score race.

Have been neglecting this thread for a few days while attending other projects (such as working on the new book a lot)... I do have more from the '74 Score race... and as soon as I learn how to post on YouTube, my Super 8 video of the 1973 Baja 1000 from the course, just beyond the end of pavement, east of Ojos Negros.

DK, as have told you before, some pictures of your Mom remind me so much of my Mom. Brings a smile every time you post a pic of her. Not a ringer but close. She was a hunter and fisherman and spent a lot of time in Baja in the 70s 80s. 5'4" 125 lbs and tough as could be. Thank you.

Punta Chivato


This was circa 1995. Not as old as most of these pics, but it qualifies as a trip in the way-back machine for me...

Glad you like them... I bumped this in case newbies would enjoy them. I hope to inspire new photos and new trip reports from the past or present. How about it, new (and old) Nomad members, care to share?

Several Spanish letters and degree symbols fixed, that had changed to black diamonds after a Nomad reboot.
