While the dream of participating in a ‘54 Special sedan in this great race has faded, I still hope to make it to a race someday. Here’s some Instagram shots of this last years race held a couple weeks ago

If you decide to run and need a navigator/copilot?????  Just saying.

Doesn’t look like they have an age limit so maybe there is still a chance for us Ben. But maybe we should take your fitty and I’ll copilot 🤣 2B94A4D6-1E96-4CDE-AEE8-C8C54EB52295.thumb.jpeg.61db73b9d02dbb50c81bcfb90f70c8e2.jpeg

I watched lots of YouTube videos of the races and it seems very exciting.   It would be very cool to watch.  Even cooler to participate.  It’s not a middle class guys sport though.

From the first race 

Due to the number of wrecks with injuries and many deaths the race only lasted like four (?) years

I think that Mr. Earl will be looking for a navigator. Any volunteers?

I've had to use the old "Pantyhose for a Fan Belt" trick to get a date home from an evening at the Jersey Shore. 

The '49 Pontiac convertible did just fine.

It worked, and I offered to replace the item.

Her mother was impressed, but her father was not amused, 

or was it the other way around?
