Talking Even Vanilla Ice drove an Apache

I know he owned a 28 Pantera.

But he raced an Apache. Check out this old article.

Good thing it was not a stepped bottom given the relative little experience of the driver and flat water.



(just kidding you wackos)

He raced Sea-Poos in the IJSBA too; up until about 1994 or so.

Here is Ice back in 1993 when I delivered his custom made 28 Pantera powered with twin 502-465 HP Mercruiser packages.He designed his own paint that we applied and had the first purple interior in a Hi-performance boat.

He raced an apache in 91 then bought a Pantera in 93. At least his taste in boats was better than his taste in music.

Here is one more picture of the boat when it touched water for the first time at Ft. Apache Marina.

I still see Ice from time to time at the Motocross track here in Ft.Lauderdale.

Jo,
What did that boat have for power? Do you know if it's still around?

FIRST PURPLE INTERIOR? NOT!
Apache and PowerPlay were doing purple in the late 80's!
