ID:	103487I just wanted to share how I grew up. My Dad had the 496 Boat and My uncle owned the 212 Stress Express. When Brian Forester started posting Old School pics I enjoyed the thread very much and I thought I would share mine for others to enjoy.

    Nice, we didn`t race but we went to a lot of races when I was growing up. Do you remember the Wet Vette? his name was Jeff S. he had 1 leg? That is kind of like my buddies uncle. Great times even though it was a jet! J/K I like jets too!!

    i grew up the same way. my dad started with cars when he was young, by the time i was born he was into boat racing, except the motor was pointed the other way and there was a propeller. after that he got into offshore boats, etc.

    i have a pic of me with my tricycle tipped over and plastic screwdrivers fixing it, just like dad.
