    Default *** Pics of my dad's Passant flatbottom from early 70's ***

    This a couple of pictures of my dad's first flatbottom, and was the first of his two Passant's that he owned. This was when things were simple, and you built a boat with whatever you had. This was a 429 Super Cobra Jet, that came out of a wrecked police car. Lot's of memories in this boat.

    Dad started racing this boat in the mid 60's, this paint job came along in the very early 70's. He used to race in Troy and Piqua Ohio, he also raced at Ford Lake in Michigan back in those days. My brother (OP) and I were really young back then but a few names that stick out were:

    Tom Benner
    Jerry Hanes
    Mike Bretch
    Gary Fowler
    Jim Gouldsberry (who owned and built Passant boats)
    Jim Shultz
