Can You Help??

I've had some special requests for information that I personally can't help with. I'm putting this page online in the hopes that someone out there will be able to help these people with the information they need.

Lucille Woodruff has sent in a couple of photos, taken between 1960-1962. [1] | [2]

Does anyone recognizes the couple getting married? Standing with the couple is my husband SMG Billy J Woodruff and me. Would love to know if they are still alive. Any info would be appreciated. Please if you have any information.

I never knew about this, but George Biavati sent in a few pictures from 1958 to document it. He says drag races were held at an abandoned airstrip in Keren on Sundays. "I remember we had local police there to keep back the locals behind a rope. We had a free zone next to the track where only military personnel were allowed. I do not remember any names or the cars that are involved. I know I had a 37 Lancia and raced it against a similar one and lost; but I don’t have that picture either. Or at least have not found it."

Check these pictures out and if you have any information or pictures related to the drag races.
