Its not a Cigarette - it was a Scarab - SEA SWEEP - Tony Garcia driving - prototype Arneson drives - its a NNRT video - multi generations down - (degraded video) - Plenty more where that came from - contact Triple X here - its from the 1980 Point Pleasant race if I am not mistaken.

Phil that is your stuff for sure. It was Tony Garcia driving the Arneson Scarab at the Benihana race in'80....same race with Elswick in Long Shot...'80 was the year he went on to become US 1.

The guy remarks about him "going in the water" in Argentina. As you and I both remember, he went into his life raft and was rescued by a freighter going to Buenos Aires.

Great memories...happy to have been around with guys like you back then.

Very cool, how about putting them on DVD and selling as a collection. (I know you tried a few years back but it never seemed to get off the ground)

Is the Long Shot boat the same boat that Cashbrain had bought for Ellswick?

Loved the footage of Fayva Shoes too! I wish I had the extra bread to bring that one home!

I'd buy one of those! At the risk of showing my age, I miss the days when offshore racing was for bad asses, and the name Cigarette MENT something.
