78 Hondo V-drive
« on: April 09, 2010, 08:52:41 PM »
Here is a pic of my Favorite boat I've ever owned. It been in my family since 1980. I grew up sitting on the dash of this boat year after year in the garage watching my dad and uncle work on this boat. It was originally owned by a man named Bob Emerick that raced it at long beach stadium in 78 and 79.The motor in this pic is the same motor that is in my forum ID pic but blown. It was built by my uncle Steven Brooks that use to work at Arias back in the day. Since pasted a way.I bought this motor from him when I was 18. But he would never sell me the Hondo. Said I would die in it with my need for speed. After a couple years I finally drove the poor guy so crazy that he caved. And I've had it ever since. It's gottin a little brittle to be doin a 100 plus any more . I was thinkin about gettin it restored but i have kids now and there terrified of it. I thought about cutting it and making a bar on the patio out of the deck ;D Or maybe saving it for may casket one day. Quoting my uncle that I'm going die in that boat some day. But the ole lady put the sqwuash on both. Oh yeah it had a turbo 400 in it set up by c&o trans in gardena . Is thing was sick in its day. When I was 21 all the old timers would walk up to me and ask if my dad was crazy lettin a punk like me drive his boat. It' s mine let's race old man >:D. I;m lucky to be alive. This pic is in 97 in cooper canyon. Just found it. Bring back some kick ass times. ;D ;D
