This is a picture of my father, Joe Stevens, a Professional Sports Photographer from the Detroit area.  I have dedicated my website to his photography work of 50 years.  I hope you all enjoy it.  It is a labor of love.  The photos are all for sale to from small to large size posters along with all sorts of merchandise.  I'm starting to add other exciting photos of Detroit area in the 60's of landmarks and celebrities and things you'd remember well if your were from the Detroit area.

Good afternoon - By way of background I am a historic motorsports author/photographer/lecturer. My present research project deals with early racing Mustangs. Those being the cars that competed between the Mustang's introduction in mid-April to EOY 1964. One of the early cars was an F/SA Mustang that won its class at the April 26, 1964 Regional Meet at Detroit Dragway driven by Bob Jarvis. I am interested in speaking with him or anyone familiar with the car, as well as documentation, programs, photos, entry lists, results sheets, etc.. Thanks & take care, Mike Matune

Had a friend race at Detroit with a Front engine Fuel dragster named the Brute. late sixties. I'm wondering if you would have any photos of that dragster. I helped him a few times but never took any pictures. His name was Stan Patiki hope I spelled the last name right. Push car was a blue 66 El cameno.

When you go into the 1960's Drag Racing Photo's galleries at www.JoeStevensPhotos.Com, if you'd like to see a picture in a larger view, click on it so it's in the big box on the right & then to see it 3x bigger, click on the picture again.  There are over 1000 memorable photo's from the 1960's of some of Drag Racings favorites.

I just added a new picture to one of the galleries on the JoeStevensPhotos.Com website.  The 1964 Lightguard Armory Car Show Gallery there I've added a photo of a Mickey Thompson dragster that looks like something out of lost in space.  I have a photo of Mickey Thompson driving a double engine dragster in 1960 in the "Legends" gallery in black & white & that one is pretty wild looking too.

Ok. First to Jack:  Once you click on the link & the picture opens, look above the picture for XL 1X 2X 3X & those are the sizes that the picture will open to so go to the 3X which is 3 times the size and I think you'll be able to see it even with your old eye.  Believe me, I need glasses too.  Secondly, to Wally.  Is the Eddie Hill Twin Pontiacs the picture I showed or is it the V-8 Pontiac that is shown in the gallery right after it.

I 'm almost positive it's Jack Moss's car out of Amarillo , Texas !  My favorite car at this race was the Linkliter Bros. A/C coupe out of Staunton , VA . They won Middle Eliminator .

Sorry, the pictures is two small for my old eyes. Does anybody know the where-abouts of Ted Robinson one of the track photographers at Detroit Dragway. By the way,  Jack Chrisman had the Howard Cam twin-engined dragster back  then too.
