Fat Boy, lost in the shadow of your ass!

This is footage from a show my band FreakPower played in 1992 - the dude from the audience just got up on stage and did his thing, never met him before. I really wish I still had that Rickenbacker bass! Thanks to Peter McLennan for editing the video all those years ago and digitising the footage. I imagine the 1" tape version is long gone now.

Think & Quick!

Speedway season is officially underway and it just so happened that we had a Scroungers visit to legendary driver John Stanley's house on Sunday. What a trip! The walls of John's garage are jammed with the evidence of a life dedicated to racing - not to mention his workshop and the cars! The Hank Henry injected chev sprintcar, the Frank Brewer V860 powered # 99 replica that John built and the restored Bob Tattersall Offy powered "Hollywood Spring & Axle" # 54 car all grace his garage. John took us step by step through the build and history of each car and sprinkled in a good few stories from his years of racing.

A matter of National importance.

Streetrod Nationals went down in Whitianga over the weekend and the weather was damn fine.
I hit the road Thursday afternoon in Tumblin' Dice and let it roll.

Blond dog at the Red Fox.

 








On Friday, 200 cars cruised to Rod Millen's (or Rod Millions as I like to call him) Lead Foot Ranch - very cool place.



Coroglen Tavern

Steve Levien had some funcky clunky going on...

...and found some foriegn bodies that had been flying round in the cyclinder. Car is on a transporter back to Auckland.



Boat Racing - these guys look like Trouble. Final was won by Troublebound who had a close win over the local rugby club. North Shore came in third.
We stopped at this castle on the way home - complete with swords and sailors?
 

Kopu Tavern on the way home.
