    It's amazing how things have changed on the HAMB in the last decade and I just got to thinking what cars, if any, have made all ten years of the drags??

    That's actually really cool and a feat in itself! Did you get recognized for that at all at the drags?

    I've been through a handful of cars and too many, unfinished projects since then. I really do think that running at all 10 drags with the same car is a big deal!

    Given the accomplishment I think the BLAKMERC shoud be on the T-Shirts for next years drags !!!! (What do you think Ryan???)

    Congrads on being the last "Merc" Standing and SUPER COOL that you have been cruising it since you were a teen-rebel.

    Great times hanging out with you guys this weekend! Cool crowd!

    One year I brought the Henry J gasser to the drags and Hooley brought the Bonneville car. I should have had someone drive the truck to the strip for me but I did not think about it at the time.

    I am just tickled that I have been able to be there every year.

    I've been to all of the drags but did not drive the 59 the year we moved as we finished moving just before we needed to head that way and the car was stored elsewhere. Wish i would have drove it.
