Default Can You Help CP?

Do you have an extensive collection of National Dragster newspapers, going back 10 years or more?

Would you be willing to assist us in a research project?

Before we go any further, your compensation for your assistance isn’t going to be much more than a hearty handshake, a slap on the back and a “Good work!” comment from our exalted leader. Just so you know.

But we really do need your help, so if you’re the right person for the job, please email your contact information to:

Email to Bobby@CompetitionPlus.com

Let us know how extensive your collection is, and we’ll go from there. And thanks for your assistance!

I am no help but I should be. Sad story follows:
I had National Dragsters from ? '68 or so? East Coast Drag News. Special issues of CARS Magazine, Super Stock, etc. Literally a dozen big boxes. My ex-burned them all. Along with my baseball pics. At least she didn't kill me.

Several people on your FB post have what you need, but nobody is replying to them.

Are y'all like the Force's? They only make the post and reply to nobody, lol

Something Glendora should do is archive their issues for members.

Myself, all I've saved is some milestone issues - Hill's first 4, Bernstein's 300, etc.

I've set out to save old magazine issues before, but after a few years, it winds up taking up so much space I end up tossing out all but the really significant ones.
