    I remember the Blown Hearse when it ran at Charstown RI strip. Yes it did run well and sounded just as good.

    One question you say your mother washed out your mouth when you were a kid, but now you live in sin city Thailand? Some people learn and some don't I guess?

    Good come back. Now back to our regularly scheduled program, do you have any pictures of the blown hearse or the Growler? Maybe Anglo Geckos cars?

    Dean go to the doverdragstrip.com site and type in what you are looking for. There is plenty there.
    LB I got my indoctrination into hot rods and race cars the same way, I was 12 when I hung around Speed Garage in Elmhurst Queens.

    Well, the thought is there but not much personality. Looks to be more of a cruise in piece than a tribute for the track

    Guys the modern version is Dickie Doyle's street rod version , Billy Colman has the original and is restoring it to the way it looked in those pictures. It is all on the Doverdragstrip.com site put blown hearse in the search box.

    Both hearses a little short in the coffin-carrying area.
