A Visit with Ed Crowder, one of the "Geezers" from Kil-Kare Dragway

Hi folks -- spent some time with Mr. Ed Crowder today at his garage located in Beavercreek, Ohio. Ed has taken a leadership role in bringing together the "Geezers" who raced at Kil-Kare beginning in 1959.  He just turned 80 and has a wealth of knowledge about drag racing during a Golden Age in the sport's history. A collector of many things, Ed has a few interesting cars in his garage, inkling a 1960 Cadillac mild custom and a 1956 Cadillac.  In addition many historic photographs, the walls of his garage feature ephemera that tell us much about a time in history when the automobile was at the center of American culture.

Ed at 80!
