I have a number of pictures from the summer of 1975 to share. I had a red 1972 Plymouth Duster with a 318 and 4 speed. I wasn't any good at racing, so I had my friend, Les Bigney, make some passes with it. I believe it ran in the 14's. It was a fun time. I will upload some pictures via this website..
The exterior wall of Southfield Bowl boasted ''Chromatic Design for Higher Scoring!'' - But actually I think the secret sauce was worn, wobbly wood .. I went there one afternoon carrying a low 120s average and rolled the sequence X X X X / X. With a house ball!

I have a picture of my uncle Dave at the Algiers in the 80s, my dad would go see him a few times a week at the Algiers, him and Dave were best friends. I have many memories of me, my brother and Daves son Stephen at the playground in front of the big screen or at the video games inside the concession booth. Free popcorn and arcade games are some of my best memories of those days. Uncle Dave was the projectionist from the late 70s until its closing in 1984 and Im sure many people will remember him. The picture Ive uploaded is Uncle Dave standing in front of the Algiers Drive In sometime in the 1980s
