I've never met him but Bill is a BADASS!!

I hope to be doing the same thing when I'm in my 80's......and 90's.

.I just wonder how fast those electric funny cars will be going by then!

What's more interesting is Jon Kaase had a comet drag car back in 1968 when he was 16 years of age........which ran 11's and used to drive it to school with it. These comets are bad *** big time.......i want one.

Cheers, Bob
