This is a picture of my Mom and Dads, neighbors relative. I am not sure which one he is, but I thought it would be cool here.

Eric, I am not sure, but I think it was during the war. They, like many Americans soldiers thought the Kubel performed better than the Jeep, so they probably traded 3 Jeeps for the Bucket Car.

I remember when I was about 11 years old, washing and "Blackening" my oldest brothers slicks for his 63 split window Vette, he loaded em up and went to Ramona for a Drag Race, my other older brother got to go with him, I had to stay home..... ( I believe it was at the Old Airport in Ramona)....

I,ll never forget, he brought home a Trophy that day....

I have mementos from my dad's time spent at El Mirage.......... even the Russetta Timing Association stuff which I think was the pre SCTA. Time to dig it out.

Don "The Snake" Prudome. Wow, thats a long time ago.

I have a few pictures I inherited when my Dad passed away in 07. I am not sure if my Dad took these or a friend of his, but they were in one of the family photo albums.
