48-Year Itch!
When the stars line up in front of me, I just have to record it. I have no choice. And this was one of those moments. I don't know if this will ever happen again. I certainly hope it will--and in front of the grandstands at some selected NHRA events. For you see, you just don't see this happening at all-- when you look back at how unlikely it is that the car and the driver would still be around in 2012! Take the driver, Don Prudhomme. How many times did he make full passes in a top fuel dragster or funny car? And for how many years? In short, it's a miracle that he is in one piece, after all that--and he is! Thank goodness! Then the car: The Greer, Black, and Prudhomme dragster, built by Kent Fuller and raced from 1962 through 1964, with the original partners, it ran up an incredible record at southern California tracks of 81 wins and only 8 loses! (According to Phil Burgess) Then lengthened--bought and raced as the "Bonanza" for a while, eventually stripped of it's motor and left sitting for years. Restored by Steve Davis, bought by Bruce Meyer--How likely is it that it would be allowed to join up with "Snake" for this moment? Pretty unlikely--except that it's owner Bruce Meyer, is a good friend of Don's, and after hearing about Rick MacDonald, they gave him the nod to bring the car to the track, and push start it to life. Now the driver could have been someone else....but it wasn't. That's what makes this fire up so significant. And like I said: All we can do is hope that this mind blowing moment will happen again at a track near you. And if you hear they are coming, better "Make the Scene". For the chance may not come again. Like an old legendary cowboy on a white horse in your local parade. And all you need to do is what you did when you were a kid: Sit on the curb and watch him go by. Perfect. :)
