Here are some photos of the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion 2005 held in Bowling Green, KY. The first shots are of the newly built Croshier-Baltes-Lavato Top Fuel Digger replica. Jerry Baltes is being inducted into the International Drag Racing Hall of Fame soon. (what a beautiful car)
On Friday night, I went to the VIP/Media Reception where there was more horsepower in one small room than should be legal. “Gentleman Joe” Schudeck, The Dead End Kids, Hubert Platt, Eldon Sidebotham, Speedy Bill Smith, S&S Racing team members and longtime friend Ken Hirata, who with Phil Hobbs and Bobby Vodnik’s wheel skills, won the US Nationals in 1963 over the legendary Don Garlits.
Lots of beautiful cars and stellar weather. George Reed
