Don't know exactly what year this was, but I'd say it was between '79-81. My Pops entered a 72 Di Marco Runner Bottom with a 427 BB Chevy in the carbureted gas class and ran somewhere close to 90 mph. He also tried to pull his buddy Jeff backwards barefoot to beat the 65mph record and everytime the secondaries would open open up on the dual Holley 750's, it was nothin' but curtains for Jeff!! My favorite part about the ad is where it reads, "COOLERS WELCOME" !! Atlas Van Lines was a huge boat racing sponsor in the day and they also sponsored a Hyrdoplane boat. Endo's Ski Shop is still down on 2nd street in Belmont Shores and although they are primarily a wakeboard shop now, they still have some rad antique solid wood skis still laying around.
