Tri-Five Gassers...

  1. I just posted in another thread not five minutes ago hoping to never see that turd again, and then you post this! Sorry but that thing is gross! At least the current version of the Shake Rattle & Run used the original body, not that pro-mod abortion.;)
    This one is much better. Shake Rattle & Run on Chicago lakefront II.jpg

    The pic of the pro mod version was taken in '94 at the Grove.
    The early and mid '90s was ripe with pro mods and mountain motor pro stocks in then
    current body styles. With guys like Pat Musi and Tony Christian running insane killer
    engines in vintage bodies it was a natural thing for the Messino's to step up. The Mid West Pro
    Stock Association series was very kool to watch, also.

    As far as the current version goes, sure, it's kool for nostalgia freaks but people were freaking
    for the pro mod cars by guys like the Messino's and Bob Giertuga's '94 Lincoln Mk VIII.

    And how in the hell did they get "Shake" on the sidewalk on Solidarity Drive by the Planetarium?

    "And how in the hell did they get "Shake" on the sidewalk on Solidarity Drive by the Planetarium?"
    It was a different time my friend!
    I couldn't agree more about never wanting to see the pro mod version ever again though!

    Either they got a permit, or would have had to get there early in the morning to unload
    the trailer on a generally busy street, get the car placed, pay off the cop and beat feet
    out of there.

  5. I would bet the "pay off the cops" quote was the order of the day. If you like that picture, you would love the Chi-town Hustler picture doing a burnout by Grant park on the street. I can not take credit for taking any of these pictures as I may not born yet. There was a rumor the pro-mod "Shake" was in a federal impound back around '99, but everyone knows how often rumors are true.

    It is true, as the Messino group had their legal problems. I heard what was going on at the time
    but didn't have first hand knowledge.

    Must be some great stories behind some of the names. Hint, hint.
