    Default Morgan City, Louisana 225: 1973

    Pit Stop for Ron Hill: I finished 4th, but was probably the fastest boat there except it got windy a hell and I could not "HANG IT OUT". This was the race where Ziggy picked me up at the hotel and drove me to the lake. He asked me, :Why do you drive for OMC?" I think he expected a "HOT SHOT" answer, but all I said was "Ann likes me." Ann was Charlie Strang's mother. Charlie was President of OMC. Ziggy never mentioned this again!

    Hi Ron - I don't get over to BRF like I used to. Things got a little to political for my liking. I may come back this winter and do some posting again. I had the opportunity to work with Ziggy and Bob Goudy when I was an inspector. They are both great people in my mind and were around to be a part of the glory days of racing.

    Yes the old racing days were fun. Hey E-tec1, do you still have your shop on Depot St? Give me a call 847-845-4857.
    I remember seeing Terry's home-built after it came apart.......split right down the middle!

    If you look at the pictures, the white #364 up on the hill is Terry's basement boat. The Burgess (#328) is the sister boat to Terry's old Mod 50. Later that day, this one blew over.Dad burgess.jpgLeatherby m50.jpg

    No time to go to my files, but looks like the boat Terry finished on the podium in the 1978 UIM OE World Championship race. Think second behind Bob Hering.

    You mean Terry Leatherby's #898 Broughton boat? That could very well be, he ran pretty well with it. I think he had the latest block with the straight in intake and all the updates OMC had at the time. Terry
    Robinson I think had the earlier block.

    Mark, that's a great picture.
    I can name a few of the other drivers: 191 Jimbo of course, 364 Terry Robinson, 444 is Curt Todd, 515 Jim Caldwell?, 33 (F troop) Fred miller?, 457 Hering ?,The SJ class Miles Master on the beach was definitely owned by Gordie Mason.
