That is serious old school.  I don't imagine that could have been to safe at high speeds, but what a kick in the pants to take a ride in that thing.

It's not old school unless you call it a "water pumper". Those were always cooler because of the sound and the keg fuel tank. Cool pics

I didn't see one either but most had a full size keg for a tank. I did the Cragers too.

Its nice to know some still remember what a water pumper is.  The first pic. has the old beer keg tank but when he went to duels you could not keep the front end down. So he put the tank and battery up front.

Couple years ago some guys came up to my dad at Sand Mountain and wanted to know what the hell it was. One guy thought it was a tractor puller, another saw the old mech. vett. injection and said it was worth more then the whole buggy. Now you want to piss off a 70 year old guy. Its not saying somthing about his wife or dog, insult his old rail and he is looking for a batt.  Grin

Old stories like that (the conversion to duals), and the results after.....  awesome, simply awesome. 

Keep them coming.  I'm trying to create the same stories for my kids.  I didn't have a father growing up so I had to learn everything on my own.  My kids get to go out and play all the time, and I hope they have some fond memories.

Please tell us more.

Kids are the greatest unconditional love.  It take a real loser to not be there for there kids. My older boys have only seen there mother twice in 15 years. I have changed more dipers then any man should ever have to in 5 life times. But I would not change it for anything. Only thing that sucks now is there all now faster then the old man.

My parents meet at the first In-n-Out Burger. My dad had his 40 ford with a blown 331 hemi. Mom would not go out with him at first because he was a car guy and her dad said all car guys were hoodlums.
48 year later he is still married to my mom and were restoring that same 40 ford with a blown 392 hemi old skool style slamed to the ground and fast. Trying to have it done for there 50th. and a big party at the In-n-Out.

Well said! I dont have any kids but a lot of nieces and nefews and I make them toe the line but we have lots of fun and they all learned to ride at an early age! Do good in school and stay out of trouble and we can go riding or to the beach, whatever they want but it teaches them that there is reward for hard work! Also great story about your folks that is really cool to hear!
