Hi all:

I'm producing a film about speed culture in Hawaii (

)and when searching for images of stock car racing at the old Honolulu Stadium, I came across the beautiful color plate that is on this site (google "Honolulu Stadium stock car") and I think it's the first image that comes up - it's linked to this site. Anyway, I'm interested in finding out who owns the image and how to get in contact with that person. I'd like to ask permission to use it in the film. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Mark

Are you referencing this: Honolulu ?

If you are, go to Jim Wilmore's page and send him a message: Jim Wilmore

I don't think Jim would be the original image owner, but perhaps he can recall where he obtained it, whether online or in some of the packs of racing photo prints he purchased.

Hay Jim, if you have more that your willing to share I'd be thrilled to review more images. That color slide is by far the best I have on Honolulu Stadium. Most of the images we're using are scanned from newspapers (B/W grainy). Thanks again.

Good day.  New member here and I'm very happy to find this site and thread.  My family was stationed at Pearl Harbor from 1956-62 and we attended as many of the stadium races as I could beg and plead with my folks to attend.  If my dad was on a cruise, my mom wouldn't take us.  Regardless, I loved the races, especially the modifieds and my favorite driver was Cherrie Neves.  I'd love to see share any images of his cars (especially color if available), bench race stories, race reports, season standings, etc. that members may have on him.  My scrapbook from those days is long gone.  I do have one book on the stadium, but it is in storage and I can't remember the author's name sorry to say.  I do have a few things from the web, like his Obit, but that's it.  Any help greatly appreciated.  Perhaps there are surviving family members that might be willing to post or share photos?  Thanx, Gary.  Tampa, FL.  USN, retired.
