It's 1979 & The Canadian Rally Of The Tall Pines Starts In Downtown Peterborough

In 1979, the starting point for Molson's Rally of the Tall Pines took place in Peterborough as part of the last stop in Molson's Rally Championship of Canada series that year.

Here are the cars rolling into Peterborough to begin preparations...

The racers come from all over North America and get their cars ready (some rocking trucker hats and plaid, like this guy from Rochester, NY)...

The official start area for the race is at Peterborough City Hall in the downtown...

And the race begins with the "transit stage" in downtown Peterborough...

Then the next stage of the race begins outside the city in a more wide open area for spectators...
