So check this out. On thursday April 3rd, my grandfather will be turning 100 years old. We have arranged with the Guiness Book for him to set a world record. He will be driving a car at 100 mph along with a boat at 100 mph on his 100th birthday. Should be pretty cool.

The car part is at an undisclosed location for obvious reasons. The boating will be taking place on the San Jauquin river. We will be leaving Discovery Bay Marina aroud 8:30 or so.

Cool! I saw the news crew in the Steak House parking lot this morning. Looks like the weather will be perfect.

And the weather was perfect. I wore my DLB t-shirt but not sure if I got in any shots. Lots of coverage though. channels 2, 4, & 7. A couple of newspapers, and Todd Taylor from Performance Boats. We should have lots of video footage. Todd Taylor & Gary Meeker from Jokers Wild Productions set up the car and boat with lots of cameras. 4 in the car and 3 or 4 in the boat. So the boat belonged to a Discovery Bay local by the name of Ed Stewart. A beautiful 36' Skater with 2 565" engines that were topped off with 10-71 blowers. The car was a Lexus LS430. Gramps was able to pull off 105 in the car and 130.4 in the boat. Not bad at 100 years old. An amazing day.
