B Class was a great class to watch, my favorite. When Mr. Technology was at the pits in Point Pleasant, the bar definitely went up a notch. The MRD superboat was also one helluva boat for the A-class to contend with.

Damn,

You guys are talkin old school from 1996. The last race I won was 1993 then back to 1991, 90 and 89. I am feeling REALLY old!!!

Those really were the good old days though. Good times, Good times.

Still, It's amazing to me how much has changed, a ton is still the same.

At least APBA is paying for their finishes now, when we raced we never got payed!

REALLY old Whirlygig!!!!

Didn't you also run in a Fountain under the same name?

Definately the good old days....

Sharkey,

I drove the Hippie. The guy that sponsored the boat moved on to race with Jim Hallet in the old Hallet Signs fountain which he changed to "Great Lakes Caster". I retired when the old "Wave Hippie" retired.

After a crack in my L5 I figured I was going to end up in a wheel chair. I still miss it though.
