    Wow. I have not seen this stuff in years!

    Yeah, that's me. "BBB"... (Bob Before Beard).

    Bobby Spears was indeed one of the best guys to run a pit. He taught me a lot about how fast slow is in a pit stop. Also how slow fast is doing the same thing.

    The movie was made in 1978 if memory serves me correctly. We used it at tire dealer meetings all over the country. I've got the 16mm film somewhere in my stuff. Can anybody tell me what would be involved in getting that film transferred to DVD? How much...? How hard...? How long it takes?

    Lucas, you found some great stuff!

    Quick search came up with this, it has a pricing calculator included. I'm sure someone else on RDC can help you out but it may give you an idea on cost.

    If there is a vote for "best post" on RDC... that one takes the cake. Good stuff.

    I think I saw Hunter S. Thompson in there... ha ha.

    That there is the 78 Mint 400, we won class 11 that year with our good freind Mike Van ells. Can sombody tell me if the wheels go up and down on the Blazers or are they like a go cart with 0 wheel travel LOL. I was 16 years old at that time, it was so exciting at the time. Talk about feeling old!
