    Default Parker 1981...

    Bill Muncey and John Daley had driven together at Havasu in a Glastron.... When John got this 19 foot Daytona, Bill made me promise I wouldn't get JOHNNY hurt....This is me behind the wheel...we finished third.... What year was Muncey killed??? I always thought of the IRONY of Bill telling me to take care of Johnny!!!

    This is the same John Daley who runs the San Diego Regatta every year...

    82 MPH all day!!!! (And we were the fastest in class)....

    Default D Stock Hydro

    This is at the NEW LAKE LOS ANGELES, a fresh water lake, where John Puesto and I promoted a Stock race.... The land company gave me $5,000 to put on the race...We ran four races there before the land use rules changed....

    I loved this Sid Craft...I raced it in C and D Stock plus A and B Alkie...

    Bought it from Stan Armstrong in Beaver Falls, PA at the 1965 Nationals....

    Every night, in Beaver Falls, we'd go Arm Wrestling for beers....I won a ton of beers for them Bowman, Oller, Simmons........group!!! Nobody could beat me left handed...and I'm right handed...But my throttle arm was strong!!!!

    Default Needles Playboy...

    To the left is Olin Griswold, we called him the Needles Playboy...He never liked the name, but his parents had bucks, they owned the Dr. Pepper, Diet Rite, Seven Up and other bottling company in the Needles area... He reportedly loaned Don Laughlin $5,000 when Don started Laughlin, Nevada... He's dead now, but in my college days were we as close as real brothers, though we were only fraternity brothers...We drifted apart after I married...he never married, he just stayed The Needles Playboy...To the right is CAPNZEE..... That is my 1968 Chevy Wagon...MY TRANSPORTER to all the races....

    Thems ain't beers, them is "FROSTY DEVILS"....

    Default C 2.... DeSilva

    Harry Bartolomei loved new boats and new engines, he just didn't like to paint his boats...Here is Harry and Lee Harris launching me for a D Racing Runabout Kilo run...I think I went 97...The record was a UIM record, but never an APBA record....as the rotary valve (VC) Konig wasn't approved that early in 1967..

    See the handle on the side deck...? that was for my deck rider to hang on to...We broke the F Racing Runabout record the next day...

    Default C-6 and Jimbo

    This is the start at Victorville...C-6 is Russ Hill, Jr. in the roostertail is Jimbo in his May Craft (Swift Copy)...D Stock Hydro....Can't recall who is leading..Gentex jacket and a Sid Craft.....

    The '56 Ford truck was my Old Man's...We drove the fire out of that thing...Jimbo and I use to see if we could "Peel Rubber", we'd floor her in neutral, and rev the fire out of her, then drop her in gear... Damn tuff truck as we never blew anything up on her....

    Once, when my dad first installed the Smog Device, the engine woulkd backfire, he opened the hood and told me to rev her up and I did, she back fired and shot the dip stiick over the neighbor's house...never to be found...

    1-C is my C Stock Runabout...a Morehouse Meteor with a Mark 30-H....
