bobw - And I thought I had medical issues. I sure hope you get better soon. I agree you really don't need the dragster when you can take the Bantam out for a few passes. Still would have liked to see what she would have run. bobw, old sparks, 440 ---- Well friends, I have taken the medical stuff as it comes, the stroke a 1 1/2 year ago has messed with me more than just my eyes, not looking to get any better. I love drag racing "front motor" cars and will sure miss it if I never get in the seat again. The good side that keeps me going is that I ran a car for 53 years and many would have liked to done the same. Was able to run one door car 65 bbc Vet, 4 front motor dragsters and 1 altered. Ran as quick as 7.02 @ 189. So racing has been good to me, but life throws a few curve balls along the way that we all will have to take a swing at. At 70 years old I am glad to be able to look back and enjoy the times with good race friends. Happy 4th to all and thank god we live in the USA.
