I remember being a young teenager and going with my friend when his dad raced. I loved being in the pits, smelling raw unburnt fuel, watching the "old guys" (the ones in their 20s and 30s) working on the cars. I remember the first time I stood next to an alcohol burner when they lit it off...WOW! I've loved the site, smell and taste of cars my whole life. BTW, I met Don Prudhomme at a bar once; he was the nicest guy. I bought him a beer and he let me ask him a bunch of questions and never made me feel like he'd answered them all a hundred times before.

I hadn't seen anything but the famous still shot of the Swamp Rat clutch explosion before. Man, that is enough to make you want to develop a rear engine dragster!

damn, ryan, Thatwas really cool!!!

It made me go back to 1965...I was a red headed freckle faced 16 year old with a flattop hair cut.

It reminded me of a trip I made down to the sooner drag strip at Ringwood, ok.

My dad wasn`t into cars or hotrods, but he let me use his `59 International PU
to flat tow my `40 ford coupe down to the drags by myself.

It`s a wonder I`m still alive...I made the tow bar out of some junkyard galvanized pipe...my welds looked like duck shit...i`d never been there before...just a crazy kid that wanted to see what his car would do...

It ran around 19 or 20 seconds...but it was fast enough for me...What a trip!!!

Thanks for the memories!!!

Thanks Ryan
That junked out wobbly version of Sleepwalk is allright.
Cha Cha's rear engine is pretty.
Nice scary ending- sweet dreams

I don't know about the big brain part but Ryan did build a time machine. It's called the HAMB Drags and the portal will be open on August 21 in Asbury Missouri.

A friend's band always used to play the instrumental version of that song. Never heard the version with lyrics, although I knew it existed. I like the instrumental version better.

It's midnight here, so thanks for the nightcap.
