thanks for posting the pics, brings back some good memories for me,as I used to follow the Mongoose/Snake rivalry.always liked the Mongoose paint scheme better, but rooted for the Snake, I have been told I wasnt right in the head !!LOLMattyMX said:Here are a couple shots I took of Tom McEwin's Funny Car basking in the Famaso sun.
did you ever get to talk to him? that would have been something to remember !MattyMX said: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 try to make Famoso 3-4 times a year, Badrat and I will be there this fall for the reunion.
