Well isn't that just pretty cool. Neat piece of history for you!
I love looking at old pics like that. Cool cars and some real history. people just don't look like that any more either.
definitely cool stuff there. and the fact that someone like Mickey Thompson picked up on the project makes it even cooler. i'm sure your grandpa built some other bitchin rides, got any more?
no more pictures. Thats right about when he started having kids... my dad and 5 brothers. So he kinda didn't have time to do much more. All the boys had bitchen cars. My dad used to drag race VW Bugs and he was pretty fast also from what he told me. But no more pics of much.
That's cool I've got some pics of my dad's old race car. Nothing famous like that, though.
post em up! i like watching the nostalgia cars more than anything. i've got a friend who has a '62 Pontiac Catalina that he bought in '63 and has been a race car ever since. has stupid low miles on it (12 or 13K). he's got another '62 that he bought a few years back that he started to built into a clone of the other car, with some more goodies though... tubbed, MII suspension, full cage, 'glass front clip, lots of other goodies. havent talked to him in about a year and a half, so i dunno what he's up to now.
damn thats cool
Very impressed dude!
Awesome! Thanks for posting that.
welcome guys! Glad everyone likes it! Looks like 4 wheel drives with big power are in my blood
I have to find the race car ones again. It was a red '62 Chevy called "The Red Spapper". I should have scanned them last time I had them out. I know I posted ones of his '69 Z-28 in '71 and his '76 K10 when it was new, but they are all I have on the computer right now so I'll post them again.
He still has the '69 and has about 40,000 mi on it. He sold the '76 in '85 when he got (Big supprise here) a blue '85 K10 The Z pic is obivously at his wedding, but the cool thing about that pic is he worked at that gas station for a few years.
