This is me (Kol) in the ChiZler at the Escondido, Ca Cruzin' Grand event.  The car is currently owned by the children of Ron "Big Yohns" Johnson, who built and owned it along with two other historic dragsters from the early 1960's.

Many thanks to photographer Darrell Conrad for the sweet photo.

 This is the recreated 1962 Tommy Ivo "Barnstormer" at the NHRA Museum for a Firday evening of bench racing with "TV" Tommy Ivo and Don "The Snake" Prudhomme.  The Barnstormer was built by Ron "Big Yohns" Johnson in 2006 and is currently owned by his children (Ron Johnson Family Racing).  The trailer is a restored original, built by Tommy in 1965.

 This is two weeks ago with Zane Shubert, the original driver, in the car for a fire up.

 

We sure miss dad a bunch.
