Thanks for the kind words! When I was a about 10 I lived in Burbank just a couple blocks from Tom McEwin. Some days after school I would ride my bike by his house and see his trailer with the fueler in it. I would just stare at if for an hour.

I never talked to him when I was young, but I did tell him that story mentioned above when I was shooting the car. He got a kick out of it. What a neat guy!

Was this from last weekend? I wanted to go but after working out of town for the previous month I figured I'd spend a little time with the wife....I got home Friday night, a few buddies went but I didn't want to be the horses butt for going so soon. I try to make Famoso 3-4 times a year, Badrat and I will be there this fall for the reunion.

I was out there at Famoso about 3 weeks ago when we were filming the movie at the drag strip.
