Legends of the Drag Strip
Rarely does one get to sit in the presence of legends. Wednesday nite, by trusty sidekick Dan and I went to a meeting of Legends. Arcadia is full of guys who sought thrills and speed "back in the day." Dan and I came away absolutely over the moon after having sat with Gary Richards, Ed Iskandarian and Sonny Scott. Here is author John Stein (more on him later), Ed Iskandarian and Sonny Scott. Ed needs no introduction, "Scotty" to his friends ran a dual engined Triumph as early as 1952 and made 150 miles per hour in the quarter on 95 percent nitro. I was so honored to be there.
