Oh, believe me! I bring the subject up more often than he probably likes. But he's still in the "That Dad and his goofy hobbies" sort of stage. For a 17 yr old, the siren song of the highway and track just hasn't
called to him yet. I hold out hope though. He likes the Mercedes W196 and knows that all he has to do is blink the right way, and I will begin to collect materials! He does drive mine though, and always comes back smiling.

Wow....when I was 17, it was eat, sleep and drink cars even after working
all day as a Chevrolet Parts man.
Of course on a Friday or Saturday night I'd slip in a girl once in a while,
as long as she didn't mind spending the evening at Joliet Memorial Stadium
or Santa Fe Park for sprint car.or midget races.
Slip a big block 301 or 420 in there Dave, I'll bet you'll get his attention then.

Captain Safety thinks it's too fast NOW! for me, anyway.
I just don't know where I went wrong.
I guess I should count my blessings. He'll be around longer this
way, maybe.

Oh, Man! I had actually forgotten about running out of gas on the morning parade! Had to hoof it back to the warehouse for the fuel can.
Thanks for the memories, Dennis

Those usually aren't firmed up and announced until a bit later in the year. Keep an eye out.

Thanks Dennis
Stayed up late eating last not night!
After being there you see lots of action in the background of your video, as you know it is there.

Here is the coverage if this years Gordon Bennett. On race day we caravanned out to the course, raced for 17.5 miles then headed back into town. This is an excellent event with many challenges. This is pure Cyclekarting fun that tests driver and machine. Quite an experience!

Thanks Dennis, that's yet another wonderful video. I worked a corner too and had a blast running a lap after the race. I'm impressed with that average speed of ~35mph, but it sure did feel fast on the downhill and straightaways! John
