I'm working on a project covering the history of the Eliminator Daytona. Please post up your favorite pix of your sleds, the higher rez the better, or email them to me: [email protected] I will also be adding some of them to the Eliminator website.
Info about the boat also appreciated: year, layup, owner history, current power, where used, etc.
