Mike Ditty Drag Racing Photos
If you’ve been browsing the Internet for the past several years, you’ve probably come across some vintage photographs such as this one from Southern California drag strips of the late 60s. The mystery photographer was Mike Ditty, and he began to share his vintage photographs online for only a few years before he left us for the big drag strip in the sky. Just by happenstance after Mike’s passing, Dr. Pete had the opportunity to acquire a large portion of the original slides from the Mike Ditty estate. Now, he is excited to share these images here at MuscleCarLife.com!
Each original slide has been scanned for best color and resolution and will be seen in our soon to be released magazine! This will be a print magazine with corresponding articles detailing the history of the car, driver, builder, and track. Most of these drag strips no longer exist, and are now historically significant. We are confident that these images will not only bring back fond memories to those who originally experienced the events, but will also create new interests within a new generation of Muscle Car enthusiasts!

Hundreds of other professional photos from back in the day including AHRA action shots will be featured in this new magazine.
As of now, this print magazine will only be available through this site and at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals that is held in Chicago the weekend before Thanksgiving every year. So become a member here at Muscle Car Life to stay up to date on all things Muscle Car related.
