Northeast Tarrant commute

Just for fun, last night I took some photos of my evening bike commute. It's really a nice ride. I just felt like sharing.

The highlight was finally getting a good look and some pics of an old car I see every day but never have really checked out.

FRIDAY NIGHT ! FRIDAY NIGHT ! GREEN VALLEY RACEWAY. ART ARFONS FLAME THROWING GREEN MONSTER. I used to live in "Cowtown".....So I guessed "they paved the valley/drag strip and put up a parking lot"

I've only lived here a few years. Too bad I missed the raceway years.

It was crazy-screamin' loud. Always freaked out new horses and we were almost a mile away. I hunted dove and rode my dirt bike where all those Summerfields houses are.
