Hey SpitFire ... that almost looks like a Magic....

I think some are forgetting he is why we have some of the best Performance Boats on the Market today.
Cigarette, Magnum, Formula, and many more.

I think he deserves some respect, regardless.
Everyone involved in the industry back then,
good or bad deserves credit.
The industry wouldn’t have the intriguing history without them. We woudn’t have the Thunder Boat Row, or get to experience the “Good Ol' days”
of how Performance Boating came about.
Good or Bad!

I’m just sorry that I didn’t have the opportunity to meet him!

I am VERY grateful that I have had the opportunity to meet many that were involved.
And, that I was able to experience the Thunder Boat Row, (Gasoline Alley) before it was destroyed.
I wish them all well…..

Happy Holidays!
Michelle.

Hi Michelle.....I agree....It is a very intriguing history to say the least....I am surprised that Hollywood hasn't capitalized on it yet....Hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year......Rich
