    Awesome!!!! Now what we need is someone down here needs to get someone like Pam on there team to do what Pam did and then our grand stands will always be full. I with Don as I too love a lovely set of legs and Pam certainly had that area covered or should that be uncovered.
    I maybe a little crazy but it stops me going insane.

    It's really cool that you got to actually know her and Jim on a personal level like that. Bet you have some neat stories.

    One time we were sitting in their front yard, and Jim was finishing up the motor. One of the guys that helps him says, "Jim you told me you would take me for a ride". So they put the car on the ground and roll it out in the street, now there is no body on it. Jim tells him to get on the back of the car. He is holding on to the top of the roll cage and standing on the bracing that holds the body on. They fire it up, and Jim blips the throttle, it spins the tires then it hooks up as the motor comes down, it pitches this guy up in the air and he lands in the neighbors front lawn. It really was funny.

Ron Capps, NHRA Full Throttle Racing Series driver, will be there as well as “Nitro Kitty” Mendy Fry along with heavy hitters Troy Green, Adam Sorokin, Rick McGee, Mike McClennan, Denver Schutz and, look out for Brad Thompson trying to repeat his Bowling Green win.

Chris “the Greek” Karamesines, Don “The Snake” Prudhomme, Tom “Mongoose” McEwen, “TV Tommy” Ivo and countless other drag racing legends will also be there to relive the early days of drag racing. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to say hello to your heroes.

    #3

    Blue Max Funny Car legend Raymond Beadle and his entire team: Dale Emery (crew chief), “Waterbed Fred” Miller, Dee Gantt, and driver Ronny Young -will be running on the Famoso track just as they did 40 years ago. It’s going to be insane!

    #4

    Jungle Pam, and ’69 Winternationals Funny Car Champion Clare Sanders will be making an appearance as this year’s Justice Brothers Car Care Products Spotlight shines on the team of “Jungle Jim” Leberman.

    #5

    World Comes to Bakersfield as Famoso becomes the United Nations of drag racing. Racers and fans are coming to Bakersfield from around the globe including a team from Alaska and 12 race cars from Canada. One to watch is the Swedish nostalgia nitro Funny Car "Tre Kronor" (Three Crowns) recreated by Johnny Nilsson with driver Erik Wallinder and Crew Chief Jeff Gaynor. Another is Roly Leahy’s Australian Dragster which will be run by Roly’s sons Greg and Peter in memory of their father. A caravan of nine motor homes and 40 Aussie’s are coming to celebrate the Leahy’s Reunion tradition.

    #6

    World’s Fastest Indian. Hot from winning the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Burt Munroe’s 1920 Indian Scout “Munro Special” where it ran for the first time in 40 years will be displayed in Memory Lane in the Grove at Auto Club Famoso Raceway behind the grandstands. Memory Lane is the place to go see a remarkable array of vintage drag vehicles including drag boats, bikes, and front-engine dragsters.

    #7

    Mickey Thompson’s Assault Dragster, running for the first time in nearly 50 years, with son Danny Thompson behind the wheel will be part of the spectacular Cacklefest. Often referred to as his favorite car, Mickey’s streamlined Class C Assault powered by a blown 303-cubic-inch Pontiac V-8 competed at the 1960 NHRA Nationals. Assault joins more than 30 other vintage dragsters and race cars in the Cacklefest symphony of sight and sound.

    #8

    STREET RODDER Road Tour is back again for another adventure at the Reunion.

Their final destination is the California Hot Rod Reunion, and you can find the Tour parked in the Grove area behind the Famoso grandstands. Road Tour Leader Jerry Dixey will be at the Reunion along with his Road Tour roadies. Stop by and hear the Road Tour stories, it may inspire you to come along for the Tour ride.

    #9

    Quarter-Mile Classroom: This year, the Santa Maria High School Race Team along with teacher Lorin Cuthbert and former drag racer Art Foster return to the Famoso dragstrip to compete in the NE1 Pro class, and boy, can they race. At the 2008 March Meet, the team’s car qualified 14th out of 61 entries. Check them out as they cut loose on the strip, and cheer on these amazing kids who are keeping nostalgic drag racing alive.

    #10

    What’s better than one Cacklefest? Two, of course! For the first-time ever, Hot Rod Reunion fans will be getting a double dose of Cacklefests at the Reunion. A push-start dragster extravaganza will be held on Saturday (Oct. 16) evening and a static-start up on Sunday (Oct. 17). Over 30 vintage dragsters have already signed up to awaken the cackling nitro beast within, including Reunion Honorees Steinegger and Eshenbaugh nostalgic TF dragster; Ed Pink’s “The Old Master,” originally built by Honoree Don Long; and Grand Marshal Tom Hanna’s exquisite front-engine dragster. The nitro-induced flame and sound show is a must see spectacle.

    This was early '70's, mid '70's/ I lived 3 miles from OCIR. So even if I didn't go to the races for some reason I could still listen to them

    I was on Jim's crew for a couple of years in late 60's. All pre-Pam days.
    Me on extreme right in the white T shirt. This is 1968 at the OCIR Manufacturer's Meet.
    I have no idea what the hell I'm doing in the pic- just unloading the car.
    Jim's more clean cut here- blue shirt & sunglasses. Pam has the pic on her website too.





    That wardrobe malfunction pic has been posted before on the HAMB. Pam made a point to say that the pic is not her. I don't know....looks like her though.

    That must have been the experience of a lifetime, what memories you must have.

    Qoute:

    In the interest of finding out the truth, I purposefully blew up that picture to the size of my screeen, and studied it in great detail. After about an hour of indepth research, sometimes using a magnifying glass, I am of the opinion that the picture in question may NOT be Pam. While the young lady in the pictures is certainly "healthy", she does not seem to be "as healthy" as Pam.

    Pam had a uniqueness to her in a couple of areas, and , while many young ladies are similarly blessed, few measure up. Before I can render a 100% conclusive opinion though I will have to study it more closely, and get back to you in a few days. But I think it is important to know the truth here, and I will dedicate myself to this task, no matter how tiring it might be. I did notice though that all my research hurt my eyesight slightly. (Mom was right!)

    In the interest of Science and preserving Pam's good name, I've included several photos from different angles for your study Don. Please get back to us with your conclusions. Note use of a stereoscope not needed.

    Might be worth it just to get that close to those things.

    I wish they would make a movie of the life of Jungle Jim and Jungle Pam.Back when I was much younger they would come to Michigan to Tri City Dragway.I think he taught John Force on how to do the quarther mile burnout.A true showman and show women.
