    Default These guys have gone to the v-drive darkside!!

    These videos are from last years Yuma Power Tour. My Dad took his new toy out this weekend & it was the first time my brother (Wes Wise) has ever driven a v-drive at speed like this, so it made perfect sense to ask Steve Rouscher if he wanted to ride shotgun with him on Sunday. I think they liked it!!

    Steve looks pretty relaxed to me.
    I may be growing older, but I refuse to grow up!

    He's gone well over a 100mph in a jet many times but never in a v-drive. We grew up around fast jets but this is the first time we've had a v-drive in the family. I rode with him that same weekend & it's a totally different feel, it's like riding in porsche rather than a dragster.

    Farmer John will be experiencing the same thing soon, hopefully we'll see it at the Performance Boat Regatta???

    Wondering out loud here, there was a Hondo that had a wood deck put on by Miller a few years back, I think the guy sold it.....kind of wondered if it would pop back up...really liked that boat.

    I have been driving a flat for a few years and I still don't look that good. Now my 20 year old son he can drive me under the table, but he drives it most of the time. I stick with my Cp.

    This boat was a glass decked Litchfield that my dad owned in the 70's. He found the boat about 9 years ago & had Harlin cut the glass deck off & put on a wood deck on it.
