So about 30 years ago I was working for America West Airlines and my cousin and I would travel to the races across the United States.

For whatever reason we decided to start interviewing the riders and picked up a microphone.

Granted some of these are a little rough but it was in the early days of videotape. The best one is Hannah and DeCoster talking about their epic Unadilla battle but also have a couple Brad lackey interviews as well as Jeremy, Stanton and Jeff Emig etc. Also some epic race footage from the USGP at Budd's Creek, Washougal, Laguna Seca and many more.

I know there are companies that do this and I've already got the prepaid Box to send back to them.

I have about 30 8mm tapes and trying to figure out which ones to send and then would need to edit it is very time consuming.

I know Gary Bailey has done this with his massive collection and would like to talk to him how he went about it or advise.

If anyone has Contact info that would be great!

Thanks, here's a couple of samples that I crudely recorded with my phone off the TV.

So Gary called me back I did not realize he used to do filming and editing for the Motoworld show back in the day.

So needless to say he has a lot of experience doing this and that is one reason when he's converting his massive collection it's like second nature to him.

He was talking about some equipment I have never heard of before and it's gonna cost quite a bit of change for me to purchase.

So I might just go with the original plan and send it to the company to convert but he also said that could be expensive, not sure if it's all worth it but there are really some classic interviews and race footage I would like to get out there.
