That is awesome! It's cool, the writing and logos remind me of the drag racers from the same era. That was back in the days when anyone could race for a reasonable amount of money.

I think it's interesting to note there is minimal in safety equipment. Those Boys (guys & girls) would probably think we're all a bunch of pansies worrying about safety as much as we do.
Gone wheel'n......I wish :(

It was like that up until about 99 or so. During and for a few years after high school we would go down to the point and 100 any time you wanted to, now there are so many regulations and feel good programs for the environazis we can't do much... :?
