    Big Johns car always had such a mean looking stance to it.

    Always looked fast just sitting there!

  5. Fremont.jpg Fremont poster 001.JPG IMG_0989.JPG My dad and I had the pleasure of hanging out spending the day and going to dinner with Mike Mitchell during a Goodguys nostalgia drag when they first started. We just kinda of clicked and had a great day. He was a neat guy with some awesome stories. I treasure that day. Met Ron Nunes once too. Love this stuff. My first drag race as a child was Fremont dragstrip. I just got done searching for an original Fremont Dragstrip decal to run om my chopped 34 5W coupe. I found a perfect one too. Here it is. I have an original Fremont Dragstrip wool jacket too.

  7. Anyone have an idea about the 141 Club? I'm assuming you got it for hitting 140+ in the 1/4 mile.

    That is my favorite movie, we have the VHS tape and the DVD and I have watched it many times. Lots more great footage in the movie. It's about 2 hours long.

    Tom Willford and I had a small feature in the filming of the Gasser Files. We had such notables as Junior Thompson, K.S. Pittmon, Ronnie Nunes, Bones Balogh and the Mallicoat Bros. In our pit area. We had just completed the restoration of the Ron Bizio Willys PU, and it was our first time out with it. The Jackson Bros could not have been nicer to us, great memories !
