  1. Dudes going the wrong way ?
    Once got to sit in my father-in-law's 1946 Indy Car. He's a guy by the name of "Ted Horn". Same car he won the 46 USAC championship in.
    No they didn't let me drive it lol

  2. First thing I noticed was it's going the wrong way.
    Holy crap dude, Ted Horn was quite the racer!
    I had to look him up but he had one hell of a record and even still has one at Indy,
    "Ted Horn has the best 10-year streak of finishes in Indianapolis 500 history."
    So what did you do, marry your childhood sweetheart?
    That's way cool.
    My Dad raced SCCA while I was growing up, mostly little British cars. Sprites and Mini's back in the day and then moto cross bikes.
    I know I inherited the need for speed from him.
    My problem is that I only know two throttle positions, off and wide open.
    Doesn't matter if it's a fucking motor scooter with a lawn mower engine on it, a bike or a pumped up Chevy.
    I used to rent my drivers license when I was younger.
    This is why I don't own a rig with a V-8 in it anymore.
    If it's got horsepower, I'm gonna use it all.

  3. Actually she was thirty when I met her in 76, Her father started getting inducted into the Halls of Fame for Sprint cars in the late eighties.
    Went with her , when he was inducted into the Knoxville Sprint car one.
    Parnelli Jones was also inducted along with Bobby Rahal. Being his oldest daughter she has accepted the awards in his name.
    He was also inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame in Detroit , which has since been moved to Daytona. We only live 80 miles from there and been meaning to go check it out.
    Yeah racing kinda runs in our blood. Me on motorcycles and cars on her side.
