Bardahl Did It Again - Ride Along in the 1962-65 Miss Bardahl

On-board footage from the "vintage" final heat (in full HD) at the Tri-Cities Columbia Cup. 5 vintage unlimiteds putting on an exhibition "race." Ride along with Dixon Smith in the 1962-65 Miss Bardahl and experience boat racing the way it used to be! Nitrous Oxide and a 3,000 HP V-12 Rolls-Royce Merlin engine always help....

Awesome to watch. As a boy growing up during the reign of the powerful piston boats, I've always thought that if I was ever given just one wish to attempt something truly exhilarating, it would be to drive such a beast on Lake Washington -- without any obstacles, at my own pace, until the fuel ran out. That would be so cool.
