There is a few still around it's just finding them and then not loosing them again. If you happen to see one send them to SuperNova19.com That way I can get them on the registry.
Thanks

What amazed me was zero-ing in on the Cary ad and see that a 28 listed for $16K.
a lot back then but still what a deal!!

I just found this site and I would like to contact the guys that knew Big Dirty, Mark Raymond, or Larry Raymond. I am his youngest son. And would just like to know some of the stories of his racing days. Thanks.

This is one of those threads that never gets old.

When scanning old pages, use the highest resolution on your scanner. Convert the image to grayscale or scan it in black/white mode (easier to read on white bkgd). Once you have it saved, adjust the contrast and sharpness for best readability.

Or the easy way-
just send the scanned image to me and I'll do it for you.

Does anyone remember the twin jet pump NOVA that powerboat magazine built , it was not very fast but was pretty cool, what ever became of it . The engines were staggered to get the pumps as close to the bottom as possible. Super cool setup.

Hoo boy ..... I wish I had saved my Powerboat mags from the early 70's ....

I remember that article well and how I almost wet myself reading Dick DeBartolo's description of how they had it out one foggy night and ran it up onto a reed grass covered island. As only he could , he explained how the damp night made the grass slippery as h*ll and how the curve of the bow just climbed up onto the island without even a bump and just kept going until it was abaout 50 feet on shore ....
