    That is great watching this piece of history be redone...

    A buddy of mine, his dad also raced one, it had a pirate with a sward and he was holding a head..... He lost track of the car. He was out of Akron ohio, back in the day....

    A special thanks to John Denslow for his tireless effort to help us get the car ready for Thompson. We couldn't have done it without him !!

    Yes, it was a good one!!!!

    Non-stop action practically all day. Those cars are run "all-out" .... Not just there for show.

    You cannot beat "nostalgia drag racing". :D

    First outing fielded a lot of questions for Rob & Carey while the Gasser Passer Pit Crew - John Denslow, took the time out to race his Comet

    Carey.... Stopped by a few times to visit but kept missing you. I did talk to others that were with you.

    It felt SO GOOD just STANDING by the Gasser Passer. Am I Crazy??? So much history vibrating off of it!

    Great job you guys are doing "saving" such a GREAT CAR from the past! :D

    Hi again Carey.... Love the "grudge race" pic......

    How was the Gasser Reunion at Beaver Springs???

    I know hot rodders will freak-out when they get a look at the "Gasser Passer" at Bowling Green.

    Wish we could be there.

    See you in September at Thompson???

    Didn't get to Beaver Springs but Rob will be going to Bowling Green, although he won't be able to take the car...as much as he would like too.
    Will be at Thompson in September .
