Not a rat, but definitely from my past, circa 1978, Boston, MA - and the identical, but not same car full resto in 2012 in CA.

Here's a throwback pic from forty years ago that I didn't know existed until the other day. There's a local guy whose father in-law was the photographer for the local newspaper from the late '50s through the 1980's and he posts old photos from his father in-law's collection on Facebook from time to time....this is one of them....



...that's me hauling the Y-Teens (YMCA kids group) through the Christmas parade in our little town in my '71 GMC pickup. I was a junior in high school and owned a four year old pickup....forty years later I'm driving a 20 year old van. Where did I go wrong?

This is as far back as i can throw it. Bout 12 years ago. My junior year of high school. My buddy is the one in the bug. He started racing that and now has a 10 second all vw powered bug. My car is a 68 ford fairlane 500. Not my ideal car but i loved it anyway. We painted it, built a healthy 289 ford and a strong c-4 trans. Had a disc break 9 " out back. Im the goofy one hangin on the door of the bug. The lucky girl in the pic was ny high school sweet heart who is now my loving wife













This is my 50 bout 16 years ago, when my dad and i started it


And now

That was not a very good day. Really windy and loose on the top end. Happily Rich wasn't hurt to badly in the incident ... other than the wallet of course. I heard the car was sold and has been rebuilt.

This is true. Rich bought a donor car and a new cage... then decided to throw the towel.

He sold the motor to some jackass here in Regina. (I know this 'cuz I was riding shotgun and met the person.)
The remaining "do-it-yourself kit" also came back to this part of SK. Rich picked me up (again) and we delivered the mess to a guy whose brain received proper blood and oxygen.

We became friends with the new owner. A couple other friends did the chassis/cage refurb and I did some fab work as well. I don't know who did the bodywork or who painted the car... whoever it was did a third rate job (at a first rate price) which leaves something to be desired but it's presentable.

The big lump hides a tunnel-rammed big block and I believe it's turning low 10's again. He has run at Gimli (once for sure) I guess you missed it!

When I first read the post I thought Richie met his demise in the car. What a relief to find out that wasn't the case.
Do you know what caused the car to turn turtle?
