    Your son TJ ended up keeping the place in the family, right? I'd say at the very least he would enjoy having the history, and if you self published it into a hard bound or paper bound booklet so much the better! If you put the file on a memory stick he can add his years down the road, to keep the story going.

    Sunday Sunday Sunday !!! we`ll sell you the whole seat .. bla bla bla .. you know the rest .. anywho this is Macon rd in Mooresmill north bama .. one of the best scenes of Sunday evening street drags in the area .. you can see for over a mile straight ahead and equally as far north and south down the adjoining road ..primarily a black neighborhood but i had a black fellow pinto hotrodder who allowed this white guy to hang around .. there would be upwards of 20 cars here on any given Sunday .. we were allowed to park in several nearby driveways and work up races ..i had my pinto there a time or two but never found a car slow enuff to line up against .. the feature race one day was a blown big block 66 chevelle vs a nos assisted also big block vega .. the vega was a regular strip car that ran 5.30`s in the 8th .. i had never seen the chevelle at the strip ..the two runs they tried to make the vega would leap out in front then go up in smoke and the chevelle had to get out of it .. i dont know if they settled it later at the strip .. .. i did git a blurry shot of the three legged deer but it`s not worth posting ...

    i scowered back a few thousand posts and realize i have not posted a picture of my pinto .. it`s the only hotrod i have left .. i peruse the local parts for sale adds every day still looking for a 5 speed trans to shoe horn in it .. ebay has the occasional one for upwards of 1000 $ or more but i`m waiting on getting a whole vehicle for that or less ..when i put the 4.3 V6 in it came from behind a standard shift truck but silly me went with a turbo 350 instead as the pinto was already an automatic car ..i am also in need of a rear end .. i guess i`m gunna have to find an 8 inch out of something and narrow it few inches .. that is not beyond me .. a friend has a couple of mustang 2 8 inch rears that would be a direct bolt in but will not let me get one .. some friend huh .

    i built a V8 pinto very similar and based on that car back in 78 or so .. that is one on my old cars i`m still looking for .. i hear rumors of it being around from time to time .. just never have lucked up on it .. its` hard to look in shut garage doors from just driving by .. the fellow i sold it to murdered his wife a few years later and spent like 30 years in prison .. i go to the area he lived in and neighbors remember him and the car but dont know what became of it .. i wish i had pictures from back then .. i dont know if i ever mentioned it here but i worked briefly with Bob Gliddens brother in law .. he got me a t shirt in the early 80`s .. it had the tbird that Bob destroyed in Atlanta i think .. i wore it so much it did not last long ,,

    Someplace 'round here I have a picture or two of me & Bob Glidden. It was taken at Englishtown, in the 90's if I remember right.
    It was his last national event win. I had asked him to sign my hat as well. Heck of a nice guy! After the race we ( my friend Ted and I ) walked around the trailers and collected autographs. So we're standing in line to get one from that Snake Prudohme, (sic) when we got to him after all the waiting he walked away from us!! I started yelling he had the right nickname an f_ _ _in snake, what a piece of _h_t! Can you tell I'm still pissed about it??? LOL...

    I was wearing this when he signed it at Topeka around 02 maybe. I had forgotten that he won To Fuel at the 65 Winternationals and yes I was there and bought the shirt there.

    you ask .. what do you do HOSS when your`e not telling hilarious jokes and riveting stories of days of yore .. well .i spend more time on you tube than i do on the TV .. i cant stand most music so i rarely if ever listen to the radio .. when i did turn on the radio it was to listen to conservative talk shows most of all who have now been silenced thanks to the latest election ..i have a playlist on you tube that i play at least once a week of songs and music i can tolerate .. i love piano music as i can play a few notes myself but hardly anything like this .. if you watched Tom and Jerry much growing up you may recognize the tune .
