When life was simpler.....

The great "TV Tommy" Ivo. I meet this man in 1969 at Lakeland International Raceway, I-40 and Canada road, MEMPHIS....(say it real loud like a radio announcer). Gene Snow and Ivo showed me how to pack a drag chute correctly and I did on both cars. Not bad for a kid in 7th grade.
"Big Daddy" Don......enough said.

Owner Ray Godman and driver Preston Davis of the Tennessee "Bo-Weevil" from Memphis area. Dad meet the owner "back in the day" when dad found himself in a wheelchair after returning from Nam in '68. Owner is pictured in his chair next to pickup truck.

These cars were the best and nothing burns better than Nitro.
Remember....gas is for cleaning parts.

  1. Cool dragster!

    Could some one spread the word about my blog. I am new and need some followers. I am going to try and be regular with posts. I have posted Today (2/3/10).


Spam and rudeness will not be tolerated. We're here to have a few grins, and if you can't abide, move along. Did I mention Spam? Because if I didn't, here it is. NO SPAM!! That includes saying you like our blog and it's thought-provoking (which we know is a lie) and here's a link to your blog. Basically, if you link post a link to a for-profit site without the express written consent of me or the Big Vance-a-rino, I'll delete your comment and you'll look like an ass or I'll mock you mercilesly for being a dork.
~Peace & Love,
