Default Self Portrait at 148mph

Hey guys - I just had to share this great pic:

This is a picture that the late Unlimited driver Bill Muncey snapped of himself -- while running 148mph! Can you imagine????? LOL!

Hmm.. I can't seem to get the image code to work. It says "OFF". Does anyone know how I turn it on?

A the time, I think he was in the Atlas Van Lines Unlimited Hydroplane. "The Blue Blaster"

Thank's for the info BK, Bill Muncey was kind of a hero to me growing up. I'd never seen this info. Here is the link to the rest of the article. Hallowed Hydros

Wasn't that the Slo-Mo IV he was driving?

I can't really tell what year that picture was taken. He also drove the Miss Thriftway, Notre Dame and Such Crust, but without knowing the year - it's hard to tell. The white driving suit reminds me of the Atlas suit though.

He was a hero of mine too -- believe it or not, he drove a Glastron at the Havasu Classic in the late 70's and I got a chance to see him up close.

His articles in Powerboat magazine were my favorites too - pretty funny sometimes - I still have quite a few of those issues and read them now and then.

Doesn't matter, it's still cool. I should try that. No wait, I don't think the Cafe Racer will hit 148.....hmmmmm...I think I'm gonna need some bigger engines...

Thanks again BK.

Thanks for posting the pic for me, Jim. Someday I'm going to learn how to do that.
