WANTED: Do you have any old automotive related materials you would like to move out of your house, office or garage? Why not donate them to Auto-Archives, the Colorado 501c(3) non-profit Automotive Library and Research Center based in Littleton. We are looking for car magazines, race programs, books, photographs, trophies, and model cars in any condition to be catalogued for research and educational uses. Any donations are tax-deductable.
Thanks to the help of several RMVR members, we now have complete sets of most of the major magazines but are still looking for the following magazines to complete collections within the 55,000+ items currently in the archive: Hot Rod (1948-1960, 1970, 1974-83), Motor Age (pre 1992), Hop Up & Motor Life (pre 1953), National Speed Sport News (pre 1985).
Do you have any old Slot-car track and accessories lying around that you haven’t used for years? (Scalextric) We are trying to build up a big four-lane circuit that will be used for Auto-Archives and charity fund raiser ‘race day’ events, that RMVR members will of course be invited to.
We are also continuing to build a fascinating archive of motor sport events Colorado. Do you or anyone you know have any Colorado related material? Events from places such as Continental Divide Raceway, Pikes Peak, Steamboat, Aspen, Salida, Copper Mountain, Lakeside, Second Creek, and La Junta.
Help us build an exceptional archive here in Colorado for all car enthusiasts to access. To find out more about Auto-Archives, or to donate any items please contact William Taylor on 303 933 2526, or by email at email@example.com

Information needed- Looking for information on Bud Morley who died in 2000. He was a long-time SCCA and USAC racer. He’s in the #33 Dagrada Lancia in the photo. The #89 car appears to be OUR Condor FJr.
Just a lucky photo since the New Zealander who sent this to us was researching the Dagrada juniors.
Here’s the info on the photo: note on it says “Midwestern USA Regional”.
Does anyone know of or have a list of Morley’s races and entries for Oct 1961 to July 1963?
That would let us pin down the logical track and MAYBE advertise for help in getting the track identified… maybe with an entry list.
With a NAME for the Condor driver and/or owner, we MIGHT be able to zero in on (and even complete) the CONDOR’s history in America!

Condor Chassis 006- Engine 006. Imported by Bieners, the car probably went direct to Bud (Bernard) Morley: RIP 2000. The car with USA export style body was painted Black with Amadori wheels and was first raced by Morley in Oct 1961. Raced extensively by him in Mid-west regional events until it was last seen with him at an event in July 1963. Morley Raced invariably with a number three somewhere in the race number.
