Got to meet Goose a few times. He took the time to talk to me and sign my poster when a was a kid. He signed that poster on the hood of his Coors Corvette. The poster is of the last drag race at OCIC. I still have it.
Yep, good memories indeed. From about the time that "Rikki Tikki Tavi" (been so long it might not be spelled right, lol) was my favorite book. Snake and Mongoose's rival was the embodiment of the classic struggle.
Oh, man, that really sucks! He was such a nice guy...met him a lot of times at York 30 Dragway, PA, when I was doing a lot of photography of the races there.....….always had time to yap with me.....actually laughed at some of my dumb jokes...….he was a real legend in drag racing...so sorry to hear this, and I appreciate you, GNrick for letting us know.
Man, this is a shock to me....I thought those guys would live forever. There goes another great drag racing legend.
