Annual Chino Derby last night. Really is tough to beat some good ole redneck fun.

Neighbors kid ran the FD car for the first time. I may have done it in my younger days. No chance now.

There were more big ass wrecks than I’ve seen. Hard hits, cars put on their sides. Good stuff

Well since no one else searched I had to get my lazy ass up and do it. It is a second location of the Kingman joint. The fun part of this is that the MIL took us there a few times when we visited her in Kingman. Kind of cool since she was in her 70s and found it to a fun place. I will have to take the wife there when I get back to Havasu next week. 👍

Yes sir. Weather kicked up the surf some, I guess. We are at the Aulani Resort now. View attachment 1137523 View attachment 1137524
Our son just showed me a video from the Big Island waves crashing over a house this weekend. How is the quality of the Aulani? I hope that the quality has held up With bing a Disney property. I have a business contact looking for suggestions and that was one I was going to suggest to get away from it all. I have not bee out there since it has opened.

15’ sets in front of our place in Kona. Very odd for this time of year. Buddies staying at our place this week sent me video.

Water Coming up into the pool. In the video that’s the railing at our pool. Shits BIG water there right now. Only see it like this once every 5-8 years or more.

Other video is Breaking in the Kona bay onto Ali’i drive.

Cheetah, that takes me back to my much younger days. Is that an oldy original or continuation ? Very cool lineup !!!!!!!
Really takes me back. My dad (RIP) built the OG cheetahs at Bill Thomas Race Cars in Anaheim in the 60's. Had restorers contacting him for advice his entire life.

After seeing one run at Riverside in the mid 60's (If I recall), my 16 yr old car loving ass thought the Cheetahs were so cool. Built a model of one and even had a slot-car track version. 👍

I was riding my stingray around the pits in Riverside (mid 60's) to keep me out of the way of the race and pit work. Cheetahs were horrible handling cars unfortunately, but I still love the look. Still have a couple of slot cars myself.

Hell at that age I thought a suspension mod was reversing the shackles on my 57' Ford Wagon 🤣 Didn't know they wouldn't handle. 😬

Pure torture crossing that bridge. So the little man and I stopped for lunch and a swim! Turning and burning Texas.
