- Project Manager (PMP) Now Retired
63 Scout Gasser
49 Prefect Altered
Born and bred here in Winnipeg with a brief stint in Calgary in the early 90's. I'm currently a senior project manager for the phone company.
- Manitoba Gasser Association (Man. Gas.)
My current racer is a 63 Scout 80 gasser. it's an ex street racer from the 70's that used to run a 426 hemi. (See my avatar for how it looked in 73) It currently has a blown 406 sbc and is running mid 10's. I don't run brackets or for points. I run to entertain myself and the spectators who pay good money to watch us do what we do. I can't believe the people I've met just because of this truck. It's been awesome. The irony is - the Scout was in that first Hot Rod magazine I ever owned and I have never forgotten it. I feel privileged that after 35 years things have come full circle and I got a chance to own it. Funny how things work out... huh ?
My wife Lori is a woman of infinite patience to put up with me. She is a world class curler, having come within a game of winning the Canadian title back in 1989. The two of us also love to get out golfing as much as we can.
My brother, Paul, runs a trans and diff shop (Pro Gear Performance Drivetrains 204-783-4327) Which is where we build all our projects. We are both heavily involved in his daughter, Megan's racing program. She's a 3 time track champion in Jr Dragster and 2 time IHRA Iron Man winner. She currently has her Top Dragster license and has run 7.51 @ 180 mph
My brother and I have built a 49 Prefect - Altered style - complete with alcohol 358 sbc / zoomies and center steer. It is affectionately known as the "Ugly Beast" but also as the "Fuel Injected Suicide Machine" and "Prefect Storm". We currently have a 62 Falcon on the hoist that is destined for a straight axle and a 500 hp 347 sbf.
I am always looking for something different to build. I'm currently looking for a 62 - 64 Ford Unibody truck (short box) or something really small like an Austin pick up... let me know if you have something
SignatureYou may want to have your camera ready - I'm known for doing stupid things...
