AUTOFEST OSHAWA 2013

 

 

IT'S BEEN TEN YEARS SINCE I STARTED "VANNING DAYS".  I HAVE RESCANNED MOST OF THE SHOTS, PLUS I HAVE ADDED SOME MORE FROM THE SAME TIME PERIOD.  IN ADDITION, I HAVE ADDED MORE 1977 EVENTS AND A BUNCH FROM 1978, AND A FEW SHOTS FROM 1979.  SOME OF THE SHOTS ARE A BIT OUT OF FOCUS (I WON'T TRY TO EXPLAIN WHY), SOME ARE A BIT BLOTCHY (FROM 35 YEARS OF HANGING AROUND), AND SOME MIGHT NOT BE PROPERLY EXPOSED!  HERE GOES  AGAIN.

MY NAME IS MARSHALL DAVIDSON.   FROM MARCh 1975 TILL MAY 1980 I HAD A COUPLE OF VANS.  (DODGE, BY THE WAY), THAT I USED TO GO TO A LOT OF PLACES WITH.  I USUALLY HAD A COUPLE OF CAMERAS WITH ME, SO OF COURSE I TOOK A LOT OF PICTURES.  MANY OF YOU WERE ALSO AT A LOT OF THESE PLACES AND POSSIBLY EVEN MET ME.  ALL OF THESE SHOTS WERE TAKEN BY MYSELF, UNLESS OF COURSE, I WAS IN IT.

FOR THE FIRST YEAR I WAS A MEMBER OF OSHAWA TRUCK CLUB.  THEN AFTER GOING TO BOWLING GREEN IN 1976 I DECIDED I WANTED SOMETHING DIFFERENT.  SO IN JULY OF 1976 BOB BRADBURN AND MYSELF STARTED UP DURHAM REGIONAL STREET VANS.  AS A CLUB, WE WENT TO A LOT OF EVENTS.  BY SEPTEMBER WE HAD BETWEEN 30 AND 35 VERY ACTIVE MEMBERS.

AT A LOT OF THESE EVENTS WE WOULD SET UP A SLIDE PROJECTOR AND SHOW UP TO 2,000 SLIDES.  THESE WOULD BE A COMBINATION OF THE SHOTS TAKEN BY MYSELF AND LARRY CRYDERMAN.  THIS WEB SITE IS A BIT UNORGANIZED, BUT LIFE IS LIKE THAT.  AT THE END OF 1978 I BASICALLY LEFT THE VANNING WORLD, (EVEN THOUGH I WENT TO  ONE IN 1979 AND ANOTHER IN 1980), FOR REASONS OF MY OWN. 

I THINK I HAVE INCLUDED ALL OF THE ORGANIZED EVENTS I WENT TO.  I AM MISSING PHOTOS OF SOME.  I WILL TRY TO TRACK THEM DOWN.  IF YOU NOTICE ANY INCORRECT CAPTIONS, LET ME KNOW.   OR IF YOU CAN IDENTIFY ANYBODY, LET ME KNOW.  IF ANY SHOTS ARE WITH THE WRONG EVENT, PLEASE TELL ME!!!
