    Don't miss out on this opportunity to own a piece of racing history by winning the bid for this Giclee Canvas, oil finish, framed and ready to hang picture of Eddie Hill's dragster "Double Dragon" which featured dual blown Pontiac engines with dual racing slicks. This dragster was the first to brake the Legendary mark of 200 MPH at Hobbs, New Mexico on May 6th, 1962. Eddie Hill went on to set many speed records and ET's in this dragster then became the first to break into the 4 second 1/4 mile which earned him the nickname Eddie "Four Father" Hill. If at the Round Up stop by and look at the Giclee Canvas and come see us at the Cackle Fest for more details about our upcoming "LEGENDS" Event on April 11th and 12th. We will be with the blue 1940 Chevy G-Gasser!

    Want a piece of history, if you are lucky enough to win the auction on this Giclee Canvas oil print of Eddie Hill's dragster "Double Dragon" that was the first to break the 200 MPH barrier in the 1/4 mile, you will own the bragging rights to owning 1 of only 2 that will ever be produced. Yours and the one that Eddie Hill will have hanging in his museum in Wichita Falls, Texas!

    Hi, Guys and Gals. I just registered here today, and this is my first post. :)

    I will be happy to autograph, and personalize if wanted, the print for whoever wins it. They can forward both prints to me, and I can sign yours and forward it on to you.

    On a personal note- My wife Ercie and I just returned last night from Hallett Motor Raceway, near Tulsa, where I was awarded the trophy for the 2013 Season Championship in the Formula Ariel Atom road racing class. Big Fun. So after a lifetime of going straight, I am now trying to learn to turn corners.

    Regards,

    Eddie FourFather Hill :D

    Thanks for all the welcomes, guys.

    Bob W., - mentioning Johnny Williams - he and I rode motorcycles around the great two-lane roads around Longview, when we were teens. I remember one day I loaned him one of my Indians so we could ride together.

    Eddie :D
