Push Starts at Aquasco

I sure enjoyed those push starts, and the related 'ballet' -- almost as much as the run itself. (Gotta admit I was always just a little [!] nervous until I saw the oil pressure come up!)

One aspect I didn't like was push starting with a vehicle using a manual tranny. Unless you were one mighty smooth shifter, it was a bitch! After getting our 'new' Suburban, with a 'glide, the problem became moot...

This pic was taken at Aquasco, in '67 - photog unknown.
