Mystery 1970s Accident Scene #3

As part of the Bowie Blade Pic Project, I've been posting pictures taken by Arnie Miles for the Bowie Blade between 1973 and 1975. Here are a set of pictures that were taken of an accident scene in or near Bowie in the early to mid 1970s. I haven't been able to identify the location. Can you?

The slope of the terrain behind "Herbie" is distinctive.

I think the Camaro is on the opposite side of the road from the Bug. There appears to be a neighborhood off to the right.

A look down the street.

  1. That's a stumper. Don't think anyone will figure that one out! Be interested to see if they do!

  2. Thanks Buck Ingham for the comment. I have faith that maybe Summer Set or Ken L. Worth will be able to identify the location.

  3. I happened on your blog after looking at the picture of the boat in the Bowie race course pond. I've since been going through all the posts thoroughly enjoying all the old photos of Bowie.

    In the first photo the hilly background location looks like the property across from Foxhill Park on 197.

  4. These photos remind me of the area on 197 around Faith Lane / Foxhill.
