Default old drag photos

Someone mentioned I should post some of my dads pictures here. I guess I just spend too much time in trash or be trashed section. They dont get too excited over the idea over there. I will try a few every day for a week and see how it goes over here. These are by no means in any order, To explain, I had 2 dads growing up, both big gear heads and racers. Ive respectfully tributed my altered to them both from there 60's version cars named Sour Grapes, and Russell & Rice.

My dad drove 3 versions of the Flying Dutchman for Al Vanderwoude. He also was 2nd owner of the 68/69 Flying Dutchman charger.

The inception started in Lafayette Indiana, my dad moved to Kansas City to drive for Al. My parents divorced and we stayed in Lafayette, and Denny was our neighbor, so we stayed pretty close throughout the years and he did a lot for me growing up, and still does today.

Thats a good stopping point so I will continue posting tomorrow.
