Somewhere buried in either my house or my parent's house, I have a BBPBRA patch I got when I was a kid. Wish I could find it.
If I found the patch, I'm sure I'd find the pile of picutres of raceboats I took back then that I've also been searching for.

I don't know. It's been so long since I've seen the pictures, I'm afraid they're long gone. Both me and my parents have each moved several times, and I think they are in the attic of a house somewhere that neither of us own.

14 years ago while visiting LOTO, I saw a Cigarette with blower motors tied up at Shooter's 21 (where the Shootout is currently held). Thought it was the coolest thing I had ever seen but when the owner (???) fired it up to leave and I heard those big blocks thumping, that was it. 8 uears later, JT and I broke the world speed record for offshore boats with, you guessed it, two blown big blcoks thumping real hard !!

I am like you bayouboy, when i was a kid going out to the lakefront watching them go by. In my office right now i have a picture framed of the old Popeyes Chicken and Biscuits cat.

Also some of my dads friends came to our camp with their boats. One of them gave me a ride andi was hooked since. As soon as i could afford one, i got one..... and i have been spending money on it ever since

By the way bayouboy i saw you in madisonville for the 200 but i was in a rush to get back to the house. Finally moved in and had to do the damn garden, but the next time you come down we will have to hook up

the first boats i saw when i was a kid was a 88 scarab panther and a 88 chapperal villian. i still see the scarab every once in a while but the guy who bought the villian flipped her and totaled the boat.
