Default The Connection

Does anyone have a picture of this boat. I remember seeing in around in the 80's here in Miami. I believe it did race back then.

Do you mean The Collection #5? Joey Rodriguez was the driver and Jack Stutteville was the throttleman in 1983. Howard Tobeck drove the truck and Jack's son Michael was part of the crew.

The name of one of the boats was changed to the Connection, IDK If Joey sold it or what, I remember Gail Paik doing the work (Just changing the "LL" to "NN") at Donald Rossy's Trick Paint building next to Target Trailer.
