    Default Me Too!

    What I especially like is that Danny must be a packrat too.

    Danny...I'm hoping you've got a bunch more. Seems like you have a lot more history to fill us in on. If you've been thinking about a scanner....they're not hard to learn how to use. You keep surprising me everytime you post something.

    Next time we see you, could you fill dad in on how easy it is to work with computers... Lots of history between you tow, for sure.

    Tell Mrs. Pigott thanks for the Catfish stew and jalapenos in Soddy Daisy that year at the Mod Nat's. We sure did learn home grown Jalapenos were hot !

    Your avitar is what I remember you best by ! You were the only boat with a Z on it that we saw all the time !

    My dad took me to almost every SORA race at Kings Ferry from 1970 to about 1976. We lived about 30 miles from there and went every summer. Saw dang near every kind of rig there over the years, twin engine tunnels, stackers, Quincy hydro motors, Champions, Konigs.

    Some very rare stuff showed up there. Winged Allison tunnel owned by Harold Bateman, the Wild Geechee ran there at least once or twice. A Shultze tunnel with the latest Twister 2 ran there in '72. Local guy, last name was Miles owned it. He must have had a friend at Mercury!

    Another boat that showed up here more than once, another Allison tunnel but it was not the pickle fork winged one. It was a shovel nose, very slick looking and was glass boat too. I have many color pics of those days, if I can get the pics out of the stick page albums I will have them scanned.
