Big Daddy still at it!

"Big Daddy" Don Garlits still going strong after all these years. This guy is amazing at 86 years old. I happened to find this article on the internet about my favorite drag racer of all time. I had the opportunity to visit his museum years ago when me and the wife were driving down to Florida. This guy is definitely the pioneer of drag racing. Also check out his side winder car that he ran back in the day.

Side winder.

I remember Hot Rod doing a big spread on the sidewinder. Big Daddy is the man.
