    I was there when Buck's boat caught fire.

    And I was very impressed when several race boats turned their transom toward Buck's boat and blasted it with their watery roostertails before the fire boat came on scene. They nearly put the fire out themselves. Pretty amazing.

    Thanks for the pictures.

    I forgot about the boats and rooster tails trying to put that out, that was pretty cool.

    one more....Miami Stadium.

    Default Buck Thornton

    Just saw the name Buck Thornton so thought I'd post this shot I took at Bristol in England, it was during the 1980s but I'm not sure of the exact year.

    This photo shows Buck at the Bristol Grand Prix in 1986. Looks like it's possible your picture of Jon Jones shows him in the exact same boat, any idea if I'm right?
