Dragon Days

I received and read "Dragon Days" over the holidays.  Thank you Jon Osterberg for this history of unlimited racing in the mid-to-late sixties, you answered a lot of questions I have had for over forty years.  Also, I am still looking for a new or used copy of Andrew Muntz's 1970's book about unlimiteds, no luck yet finding one.See More

Tony Pastor replied to Randy Mueller's discussion Saturday's Feature Event
"Randy:  I'm a Detroiter, and I agree that these two hulls belong in Kent.  The Detroit hydroplane "museum" seems to be more of a mysterious storage depot for a private (and inaccessible) collection of hydro artifacts. …"

Tony Pastor commented on Dale Fugier's blog post A Rewarding Race in Detroit
"This article is more commentary on the dark side of the sport in the mid-sixties than the race, but full of interesting and historical insights nevertheless.  The race itself was run in very rough conditions and was very nearly called.  My…"

Tony Pastor replied to mike walker's discussion Need some info on 1971 Miss Madison
"To contradict myself, since my earlier posting I've spotted some beautiful shots of Miss Madison with a mahogany deck.  I guess that's why you asked the question, Mike."

Tony Pastor replied to mike walker's discussion Need some info on 1971 Miss Madison
"I recall it as being painted brown in 1971.  I remember this because one of that season's greatest memories is standing on the Miss Madison bow a week earlier in Detroit.  I was a volunteer course worker staffing the…"
