Met Doug Thorley over the weekend

Went to our little Cedar City car show last Sat. and saw the man that bought my old 327. He purchased and has been restoring Doug Thorley's old altered wheel base Chevy ll a while back and now it's finished.

While we were talking he pointed to the gentleman next to him and said "I'd like you to meet Doug Thorley" he's the man that built this car originally. I felt like saying DUH! ... but I didn't.

Anywho, Thorley is a hell of a nice guy, we had a long talk about the good old days at Lion's Drag Strip and how the race scene has changed. He's retired and living here in Cedar City but still goes to the local shows.

Yea I used to watch it run at Lions, lots of altered wb cars then .....the first "funny cars". This one has a Hilborn F.I. big block Chevy....sounds VERY healthy. Project89, didn't know you were in Beaver, I'm just outside New Harmony @ exit 42 (Texaco station) give me a pm next time you're down this way and we can have a beverage and shoot the poo-poo.
