August 21, 1960 -- Police stop a Corvair on El Cajon Blvd. in San Diego. The women were part of a group protesting the closure of Hourglass Field, near Miramar after an August 8th accident that injured four people.
Kids cruised back and forth with signs, "We Want A Dragstrip." They were to get their way, first with San Diego Raceway in Ramona, then Carlsbad Raceway. Love the cardboard sign taped to the back of mom and dad's car.Police filled a "Paddy Wagon" near Menlo Bakery with hoodlums arrested during the El Cajon Boulevard Riot. More than 100 were hauled away after a protest turned into illegal street racing between 35th and 40th streets, drawing police with tear gas and batons. (San Diego Historical Society Photographs)
