It’s 1970 all over again…

In the summer of 1970, I attended the NHRA regional event held at St. Thomas Dragway.  At this event, some of the hottest cars from across North America came to the track in Sparta, Ontario, hoping to race and win valuable points in the season-long championship series. 

James Hunter Six

A couple of weeks ago, I was driving to a car show early one morning.  Bored with the music playing on the radio, I started flipping through the dial.  The radio landed on a CBC station, and it was playing this very funky reggae tune I had never heard.  The song spoke to me immediately, and I had to find out what it was.  I pulled over, grabbed my cell phone and found my "Shazam" app.  I found out that the song was called "Corina" by the James Hunter Six. 

Hot Rodder’s Scrapbook

Several years ago, I heard myself say to people, "I'm writing a book".  I really wanted to do it, and I honestly had every intention to complete a project.  I soon realized though that it was a lot easier to say I was going to write a book than it is to actually sit down and do it.
