Holee-crap. You are joggin' some old memories. My time spent in '72 was on my brand new Trail 70 in the Cypress fields on the corner of Ball & Denni. That is where I grew up, right across the street. "Somehow" the fence around the fields kept springing holes, and we'd ride right in. Cops where no real issues back then, just a stern warning and off we would go.
If we are talking about the same area, around Studebaker & 2nd St, there are a few tanks remaining, but most have been torn down. I just drove by there less than a hour ago. There has been a rumor for quite awhile that some of this area would be turned into a Home Depot shopping area, or the like.
What's your story? You must have grown up in the area, eh?
Great memory jog, thanks. I gotta start tearing into some old boxes looking for pics from back then, and get them scanned in.
