Topics I've Started

Met Dale Emery Driver of "Pure Hell" & Tuner of the "Blue Max"

26 May 2014 - 05:22 PM

A friend of mine's father owns a Jr. Fueler, and they invited me to come watch them race this weekend. They were only running 1/8 mile, but it was really cool to get to hang in the pits, and go to the starting line with them. An added bonus was meeting Dale Emery. He's good friends with my buddy's dad, and came to watch the races. He drove the Pure Hell  Altered starting in 1965 for five seasons. He is also a great tuner, and took the Blue Max Funny Car to three consecutive world championships 1979-1981. It was awesome hearing stories from the early days of Drag Racing, and his wife makes a mean Carrot Cake.

Auto World Model Kit Collector’s Club

Does anyone know much about this ? I looked at the web site and it looks like you have to purchase whatever the "kits of the months" are. The bonus kit interested me, and I was wondering if it's true they would only be available to the club members. It seems it would be expensive to produce these kits, to only make enough for the club members. Could there be that many people enrolled ? Just wondering if anyone had some information. This is the bonus kit I'm interested in.
