    Hi Everyone

    I am searching for photographers, drivers or even fans who might have photos of Grand National cars from the 1980's.

    I make Matchbox sized models of the cars and I would love to have photos of drivers like Joe Madsen, Ken Logue, Max De Jersey, Noel Day, Tony Parkinson, Phil Harris, Chris Taylor, Les Patterson (QLD), Colin Knox, Barry Payne, Graeme Monds, Graham Forte, Peter Blass, Tony Orlando (SA), Loren Schipke, Cary McCarthy, Len Jeffries, Carl Jeffrey, Harry Delamont, Stephen Dale, Alex Walker, Peter Unwin, Colin Garland, etc. I have some photos of the more popular drivers like the Butchers, John Pye etc, but would love photos of some of these other cars.

    I am happy to purchase or swap for good colour photos.

    David

    If you are on facebook like the Gunnedah Speedway group, they have hundreds of 80s pics, mostly from Newcastle, on there

    Thanks guys, I was familiar with the Gunnedah and the Heddon Greta, as well as the Newcastle and Liverpool speedway facebook pages and the Old Time Speedway one. If anyone has any contact details for Frank Midgley or Nick De Groot or anyone else who was taking photos around that time, I would love to chat to them.

    I am the daughter of Ken Logue. I would be able to get many photos For you and would love to have a model of his car. Especially of his Tri City Buggy. Dad now has show cars that he takes all over Australia. Thanks
