So, it seems like damn near everyone we know is down in Bakersfield for the California Hot Rod Reunion at Fomoso dragstrip. We sooooooo wish were there with them and that prolly goes without saying.

BUT, to follow the trend we’ve been…well, following…we’ve been getting shots texted to us from said friends who are boots-down in Bako. And are those shots of bitchin’ old Front Engine Dragsters and gassers and fuelers and Funny Cars? No. They’re not. They’re great shots of amazing old DRAG BOATS. Yessir: Coby Gewertz and Paul Borrmann are shipping off some great shots of some amazing hot rod boats that are on display at Bako this year and we couldn’t be more stoked-ier.

Good things are coming…

  1. I think drags are going off at bakersfield’s Lake Ming this weekend along with the Hot Rod reunion! Boy Stoner…you’re missing it! (Saturday at CHRR Sunday at Boat Drags)

    John, you are correct…there were boat drags going on at Lake Ming ,Sunday, while the CHRR was also happenning. What you may have not recognized about the drag boats appearing at the Hot Rod Reunion, is that those boats are legitimate 1960′s documented racers, and they have historical significance.
    I am the owner of one of those 60′s drag boats displayed, ( Too Much ). Our boats are real drag boats, as opposed to “cackle boats”. We were invited to participate at the CHRR , because, like all the restored front engined rails, we represent the golden era of the hobby/sport. It’s easy to why the Dragboats of the Sixties are so popular. Come check us out.
