The first picture must be in California... There's not one, but TWO Volkswagen buses on the beach!

That second photo is not actually from the Galveston Speed Classic Ron, but the year 1975 is correct. It was at Clear Lake and organized by famous oilwell firefighter Red Adair. Clear Lake is only minutes from Nasa and Houston "Ground Control". All of the big names in Inboard GN, SK, SS and Marathon racers were here along with all the top OPC drivers. All the participant were regularly covered in Powerboat Magazine including publisher at that time Bob Nordskog and the notorious Ted May both driving inboard diesel tunnels that Bob Nordskog was promoting at that time.
