This 50th RDG must be given to the passing of one of drag racing's true legends. Mr. John Bradley. So let's take up a spot at the funeral ceremony and think positive thoughts for a man we came to know as "Mr. Flathead".

In this episode of Ricky's Dragster Garage, Ricky and I head for Fuller's shop in Santa Rosa and retrieve the Magicar after some much needed work on the car's front end and fuel tank. And now armed with more fuel capacity, Ricky proceeds to take the car up a notch to full song for a fueler. And Jeep works the old girl 'till the last drop of nitro leaves the tank. Wow, is all I could say, after the venerable driver and young tuner work their magic with the Magicar. Enjoy... Bill Pitts A Fan

No it's not racing, BUT...... Owning and operating a cackle car has its risks. As little as we do with them, the average person might think that a cackle car can be a "turn key" proposition. Well, after being on the cackle path since 1992, I can tell you that it isn't without some very harry moments. And you have to be on the lookout, ALL THE TIME, for potential failures. How my drag racing heroes actual raced these things week in and week out, becomes more astounding as the years go by. And it also makes these cars even more of a curiosity to the average person on the street, which only adds to their appeal, and value. Almost nothing on these cars has back up. When something fails it can instantly result in an accident. Take the two pieces shown here in this episode: A rocker arm stand and a steering rod end. Two piece that were set to fully fail, but unfortunately didn't, prior to a performance. Was it luck? Good fortune? The late great Pat Foster tapping us on the shoulder? I dunno. All I know is--as Patty told us over and over again-- "Sit Low". And if you want to touch base with Ricky, his shop phone number is (760) 747-5399. That's all for now. More to come. Later...
