California State Fair—1913

Sorry about that failed post earlier today. The host seems to have deleted that video. Thanks go to Expat47 for bringing the matter to my notice.

Nonetheless, I've found the essential bit: the train collision.

Enjoy!

You do realise that this all happened before stock car racing was invented.

Why can't they do this now? All the good stuff was done before I was born.

bummed it's not like they destoyed antiques. when this was done they weren't that old. it would be like a demolition derby between a couple of decommissioned city buses today.

I thought that stock car racing started during prohibition. At least that's the start of NASCAR from what I have heard. Never really cared enough to look into it to see if that is accurate.
