It's been ten years today.
Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, February 11, 2004 9:50 AM
I was proud to call him a friend. They called me at work about an hour before the news hit the radio so I wouldn't have to find out about it from strangers. With everything else going on in my life then it was not the kind of thing I needed to get cold from the radio. I hope the straights are long and fast and the turns banked high like you like them. And you get some fishing in with "Ironhead" too.

yes, he was a legend indeed. i loved seeing him run the short tracks.

I went to a "gentleman's club" because the sign said they had all the hottest models. I thought it was a hobby shop. Man, was I ever disappointed.

Has it really been 10 years since Neil passed on, time does fly by. That was the same year that Senna and Rattsenburger died as well. It was a bad year. I do miss Neil.

just curious mitchum where you got a picture of the cover of stock car racing mag cover for the month of sep 2003? i have a sub to this mag and i looked through my back issues and could not find that cover or article. or did you just make the cover to show a model? my computer is messing up again so i cant take a look at it again.

It was one of several "bogus" covers I did back in the summer using the real mag's masthead and pics of my models and new text. I kinda enjoyed that so I may have to do some more and maybe repost the others because a lot of people on here now didn't get to see them then. If there is enough interest I'll try to get them back on here. I know I feel one coming on with the "new up-sized" stock cars featuring the Wood Brothers' new Crown Vic car.

Besides being a great driver, he was probably the best ever racer turned TV guy. I miss hearing his views and his Alabama stories.

boy you sure fooled me with that cover it looked so real kudos on that. that would be a great subject for scr to cover though. it would put the memories of these drivers back in our brains and also give us a look again at the cars they drove.
