Bones Balogh Another Champion

I got a chance to meet another one of my heroes "Bones Balogh"... I had a good time talking and watched him lay down a few good runs, he was at Fontana at the "NHRA Heritage Series" event in April. He sent me a hand full of pictures and shared some neat stories about my Dad. Thanks Bones.

SWC and Chuck Finders

Here are a few pics Bones Sent.

Rick Watkins T-Bucket

Rick Watkins had my Dad build this car not once but twice. It seems someone was Testing the Car... Doing a Burnout in the parking lot and either the Trany Broke or the Engine Broke... Kind of a Typical Deal for Cars my Dad worked on.

Dave Cobb Willys

Dave C. built this Car as a Tribute to my Dad.

Shot provided by friend, Trouble

Trouble "John C." sent this photo to include on my Dad's WebPage Thanks Trouble.

Dave Cobbs Tribute Willys PU

This truck came to life kind of accidentally... as a Tribute to my Dad. Hank W. had this Cab waiting to be finished so the deal turned into Hank, Dave and my Dad building a mold off of this Cab. Then Dave ended up buying the Cab, finishing the truck and making a replica of the Finders Casper Watson Pickup. My Dad raced the Original at the 1963 WinterNationals. This is actually the Last Car my Dad worked on, he died 2 weeks before they were going to Debut it at 2009 Gasser Reunion.
