Default Just got a funky old coat

Last weekend I was tooling around in the Cig and met a cool old dude at the gas dock. He struck up a conversation and he mentioned he used to race offshore back in the 70`s . He said he raced an outboard powered Pantera named "Mr Mean" we chatted for a while and later in the day he stopped by my house and gave me this cool old jacket that he got at the Benihana Grand Prix back in 1978

Pretty cool huh!

Check with Jo at Pantera, his Qtr. mile car (way back when ;o) was sponsored by Benihana, bet he or Pepe could tell you about it.

Hey Too Old

You seem to have info on just about everything on boating. You should open a museum.
