I warmed up with the cooler for a Bunny Hop stunt.

Don't know how to post pics yet but I still do have my 69 camaro SS convertable, my dad and I rebuilt it when I was 14yrs old, 14yrs ago, might consider trading or selling for a new boat since I am now boatless..

My uncle made the mistake of letting me drive his old Penn Yan on the St Lawrence. Top speed : maybe 35. Didn't matter. I was hooked after that.

After riding several Hutch trick stars to their untimely half pipe death in my teens ,Street racing started with a new bought 89 IROC with ported heads and a 150 shot , then moved up to a 92 Mustang with a mild 347 that ran 7.40's in the 1/8 still fuel injected , fast forward to 1998 when I built a 93 lx with a Pro Charged 342 that ran 5.30's at 133 mph , then along came divorce , bye bye Mustang .. Last year , while waiting on my 55 Chevy to get back from the chassis shop I got bored and bought a 21 Scarab , fell in love with the boat thing , kept the Scarab 8 months and bought a Fountain 32 Fever with 502 mags . Now finally finishing up a 1400 hp 55' to irritate the local officers.... Oh yeah forgot to mention numerous zx 11's and a GSXR 1000 with a turbo thrown in for good measure ...

Can't remember the names, most of the tracks are probly condos by now. Used to tear up the Vinings area with Jack Baldwin in the early 70's when they were building Cumberland Mall, broke my collarbone in Mableton in 1974, raced at Burnt Hickory til 1976... still think yer older?
