first its cool to see the name frank lockhart mentioned (it was my best friends great uncle). second its almost appalling to see Ak Miller's name only mentioned a couple times.. and third.. what about Veda Orr??!!! she kept the spirit of the dry lakes alive during the war!!! AND RACED!!! on that note.. my heros are Ak Miller.. and Veda Orr.. all those others ARE bad ass.. but.. Ak Miller set 3 records in one day using one chassis and 2 motors.. as well as almost got his name shunned from hot rodding by being the first to use an OHV motor (olds) in the late 40's! and i pick Veda because come on, that shits rad, a chick racer and the fact that she helped keep racing alive during the war as well as all the other shit she did! so heres my pics.. Ak Miller Veda Orr oh and half way through this i also realized that barney navarro was not even mentioned and i remember he was one of the first to use a jimmy blower on his flathead powered 27 (correct me if im wrong).. so yea.. pioneer and bad ass.. Barney Navarro then heres a few gow jobs i like that were big timers.. blam! thats my list.. and a damn good one if i must say so myself!
