  • One for ya, Eag.



    Found a small bundle of old color and black and white snap shots. Thought you might enjoy this one of your boy in 1967, right before he burned a piston.

    Here's something you won't see anymore. Arnie Knepper in his RE Huffaker, followed by Ziggy in his Watson dirt car, followed by Norm "Crash 'em Up" Hall in his Watson Indy roadster at the IRP road course, July 25, 1965.

    I can't make out who it is in the dirt car bringing up the rear.

              Still 1965 at IRP, but this time we're on the oval. Here we have Rufus (?) in the car with Roger McCluskey alongside, sipping on the Champagne of Beers. (Shades of RailBird.)

              The good old days...

                Actually, that looks like it might be Wally Meskowski sitting in the car; and he was both the builder and car owner. And the guy sitting on the nerf bar looks a lot like "Gypsy" Mitch who was a long time crew member for Foyt for many years.

                        Jeff I sure used to feel the same way you just said .Then one day I thought this is their days,These are the greatest things going on at their time. Do you remember when you looked upon those old rail jobs and thought how the heck could these have ever been good race cars?
                        Well Lets just smirk down inside a little and keep on believing in what We saw.
                        Boy these young whippersnappers will never know what they have missed!

                          aXe...I sure feel the same way my friend. Call it living in the past, he//, anyone can call it anything they want.
                          I saw the good old days. They sure were better then they are now. I heard Tom say the words. Most here did too.

                          Too bad. The newbies don't have a freakin' clue. AND THEY SHOULD!!!

                          And that's too bad.

                          But we have folks like the Zoomie to keep the memoires fresh, the The Lord!

                          Can I hear an Amen?

                            Ahh..'Zoomie, ma-man..just what I needed to see, following a brutal day at work! Thanks, bro'.

                            I'm pretty sure I've read that Dan considered that one his favorite of Indianapolis Eagles.

                            Really enjoy the IRPs, too.

                            eag

                            ps: AMEN!, Jeff
