Playland Speedway circa 1975 – 1977


The “Rippin’ Rooster” was originally built by Larry Schwacofer, but for some time now has been lovingly tended to by the Jim Riley Racing Shop. Riley’s racing shop has had the “Rooster” ready for NORRA for a number of years, and no matter how bad the damage has been due to the race, it is always rebuilt and ready to go again.

Normally, a “Tri-Five” Chevy is one from 1955-57, but with a ’55 body, ’57 front and rear pieces and a ’56 windshield, it encompasses them all.


Wicked cool!



boycott puma


boycott pumaThis month marks 52 years of Israel’s brutal military occupation of Gaza and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Puma is helping to whitewash Israel’s apartheid walls, military checkpoints, segregated Israeli-only roads and ever expanding illegal Israeli settlements that force Palestinian families off their land and prevent Palestinian athletes from practicing sports.


Today, as groups from New Zealand to Malaysia, across Europe, to North and South America take action at Puma shops and offices, let’s take to social media to call out Puma’s hypocrisy.


Tell Puma: A true devotion to universal equality requires ending support for land grabs


I support this. #BDS forever

Delamere Forest is so old, it has scars from ice-age glaciers of 10,000 years ago and its origins go way back into the mists of time. Rumours and reports of strange animals in Delamere Forest can be dated back to the Romans.  The Romans cut a straight road through the forest to connect the fortress town of Chester to the salt mines of Northwich. The Romans reported hearing the loud roar of an unknown beast and frequently found deer and wild boars torn apart. There were also stories that some soldiers went missing trying to find the strange animal. At this time, Delamere Forest stretched right up to the southern banks of the Mersey. WEREWOLF RESEARCH

That Ferrari comes from my hometown… ! run by Luigi Chinetti Motors, eh!

God, those were heady days.




Ooh, these things and their Capri cousins are just so wonderfully gnarly!

False Flag or Provocation? U.S. Quickly Blames Iran for Attacks on Ships

Streamed live 5 hours ago

Today on TRUNEWS we discuss the mysterious attack on two oil tankers near the Strait of Hormuz, and detail how Secretary Pompeo’s blanket assignment of blame to Iran has set the stage for further provocations to be used to start Israel’s war. Rick Wiles, Edward Szall, Doc Burkhart, Kerry Kinsey. Airdate June 13, 2019.

#TRUNEWS #IRAN #FALSEFLAG TruNews on Facebook: TruNews on Twitter: TruNews on Spreaker: TruNews on SoundCloud: TruNews RSS Feed:

TruNews is on the air! TruNews is God’s answer to Satan’s fake news. TruNews is the world’s leading news source that reports, analyzes, and comments on global events and trends with a conservative, orthodox Christian worldview. Our vision is to build a global news network that provides a credible source for world news, events, and trends while giving respect and honor to Christians of all major denominations — Evangelical, Orthodox, Anglican, Catholic, and Protestant. We believe Christians need and deserve their own global news network to keep the worldwide Church informed, and to offer Christians a positive alternative to the anti–Christian bigotry of the mainstream news media.

Like David vs. Goliath, Rick Wiles is a citizen reporter who decided to take on the Big News Media. Starting with a $7,500 donation in May 1999 to launch the first radio program, Rick’s faith in God and steadfast determination has overseen the growth and development of TruNews into an internationally recognized source of credible news and information in a world where nothing seems to make sense anymore. Rick’s professional career was in media marketing and advertising sales. Throughout his early years, God’s hand silently guided him to be in employed in the latest new media. While in his early 20’s, Rick’s first media job was with a new FM radio station in the days when AM was still king. In 1980, he blazed a path as a pioneer in local cable television advertising when CNN and ESPN were new start-up channels on cable TV. As a sales manager, he launched one of the first cable advertising interconnects in the nation. He was hired in 1984 by the Christian Broadcasting Network as the first National Cable Marketing Manager for the new CBN Cable Network which later became the Family Channel. In 1995, Paul F. Crouch hired Rick as the Marketing Director for Trinity Broadcasting Network where Rick repositioned the TBN brand inside the cable industry — and played an important role in negotiating the early contracts to launch TBN on DirectTV, DISH, and the former PrimeStar DBS systems.

Rick resigned from TBN in September 1998 after receiving a dramatic call from God to full–time ministry. Have questions? Please send an email to We are here to pray for you. Whatever may be on your heart, no matter how big or small the burden, someone is waiting to stand with you in prayer.

Fear not, the religious parts are cake to get through. I am all for Jesus, but it is odd integrating it into the news.

But it is NOT in the news and analysis part that starts at about 17:00… these guys are good and you will hear the truth that the MSM will never, ever in a million years tell you. Along with some in depth information about a tonne of other cogent and important topics. In here you will even get a damn good idea of who really DID have JFK killed and WHY. And then you will know. So, yes, some fascinating facts and a timeline for the next few months… one I am horrified to believe will actually happen.

Please watch. You will not regret it at the end.




“Tires? We don’ need no stinking tires!”

In Rallye, you press on… regardless. As long as the car can move, you make it move.





Oh, I do so love Matra sports cars… they are so beautiful. This is an MS630 BRM.

Matra-Simca MS630 was a Group 5 prototype race car introduced in 1967 for the World Championship for Makes. The MS630 replaced the previous Matra MS620.[2] The car was initially designated as the Matra MS630, but when Simca sponsored Matra in 1969, it was renamed as the Matra-Simca MS630.

For 1967, Equipe Matra Sports decided to use a 1.9-litre version of the BRM Formula One V8 engine. (capable of producing 245 hp (183 kW; 248 PS) at 9,000 RPM.) Matra planned to have Johnny Servoz-Gavin/Jean-Pierre Jaussaud to drive the MS630 at both the 1967 1000 km of Spa and 1967 1000km of Nürburgring but the entries for both races were withdrawn. The MS630 only made one appearance in 1967, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Matra entered two cars for Servoz-Gavin/Jean-Pierre Beltoise and Jaussaud/Henri Pescarolo. Servoz-Gavin/Beltoise retired with a broken oil pipe and Jaussaud/Pescarolo also retired with broken suspension.

I think that Markko Märtin’s jump from Ouninpohja 2003, Yellow House jump, is the longest measured one from modern days. 57 metres at 173 km/h if I recall right. That Guy Wilks’ flight is from SS Leustu, jump best known for Novikov’s stunt in 2009. Last year they had metre marks up to 55 metres there and they roughly landed at 45-50 metres. Wilks’ jumps must’ve been around 55 metres at least. I think we would have some nice lengths from SS Himos “Nikara’s jump” as well. Only Ouninpohja’s jump is ran to direction measured here this year.

From the 1970s this jump by Juhani Kynsilehto in 1975 is rather big one. Legend says it landed around 70 metres, but that’s not accurate of course. Co-driver was, by the way, one Martin Holmes.


Sweet! Finland is most definitely Rally Central… it’s in their blood!



maya beehive

Archaeologists in the ancient city of Nakum in northeastern Guatemala recently made a big discovery. Beneath a vast ritual platform dating from around 100 BCE to 300 CE they discovered a foot-long, barrel-shaped ceramic tube with covers at each end.

It is nearly identical to wooden beehives still made from hollow logs by Maya living in the region today. Their discovery is the only known Maya beehive. Since most beehives would probably have been wooden, they probably would not have survived.


God, the Maya are far from ancient! Mainstream archaeology has no clue whatsoever.

Hello Everybody and Welcome to our new Podcast, if you are a new subscriber or a long term listener you will hear reports here before I release them to the public. I will be bringing you sighting accounts and reports from the witnesses themselves and any updates or area searches that take place in the future, until then please relax as I take you to one of the UK’s best known Creature Hotspots home to Bigfoot Like Creatures, Dogmen, Werewolves and even the odd Pigman sightings, and thats just the creatures all many of strange events happen at Cannock and it is one of our teams regular meeting spots. The first report came in on the 3/6/19 and is the latest account in a long line of reports from the chase. I will be bringing you further episodes featuring the conundrums Cannock Chase manifests.Hi Deborah, I am a member of a paranormal team and we often investigate out at Cannock Chase as our team are in the process of carrying out a longitudinal (long de tudinal) study across the Chase. We have conducted repeated observations of the area over a long period of time. As most Bigfoot Researchers do when studying one set of woods over a number of seasons in the hopes of gathering evidence or spotting a pattern or any anomalies that may occur. The study on this night was taking place on the Golf course close to the common on Cannock Chase.

Core Hill Wood Sept 2016 Witness account: “I have been picking my walks carefully over the past week and today I decided to go into my local woods approximately one mile away @7pm. As soon as we got there, we being me and my daughter we decided to walk off the beaten path which we would not normally do. We walked about a 1/4 mile in and I started to see shelters made against trees with branches? lots of leaning sticks and twigs, at this point sunset was at 7.45pm, so it was already starting to get dimpsy (dusk/twilight). I’m stood looking at these branches and sticks ‘someone/thing’ had gone to a lot of trouble to pull branches big enough that I think a couple of men may have struggled with. It just did not make sense to me at all.At this point i’m still not convinced and im trying to debunk all this mess. Im also finding loads of broken branches from saplings or trees scattered that hadn’t made it into the pile/structure? We left this area and continued for about 1/2 a mile, and there is another branch/stick shelter I presume is for cover but this one was made much lower to the ground.

Would you like to join our Bigfoot Members group and meet up with like minded people out in the field or online. If you have an interest in Bigfoot, Dogman and other Cryptid creatures and you would like to meet up or chat online with people with similar interests in your area to research or just for a general chat, this Members map could be the perfect solution. All you need is a membership to BBR (which is free you only pay for PP) and we can add you to the map where each member has a contact email.

You can get your memberships by… Or by contacting Deb directly at or by visiting ebay… Memberships are free we only charge a one off fee of £2.99 for admin and PP Or by Donating here… You will also receive free podcasts before they are made public and any new sightings that come in.

Once you are a member you will have access to the private map along with a number of social media options to meet up with our other members, you will be able to access and share finds or just read the sighting accounts. Please let me know if you want to be added to the map, I would need an email address or a contact of some kind (anyone wishing to remain anon can leave their name on file with me and I will forward any mail) and which name you would prefer. A short bio would help other members to know what your interests are. We can then also add you to a monthly live Youtube feed where we give updates on current accounts and any evidence finds. It also enables you to chat to members in the chat box alongside the video. We will also send a monthly Newsletter email for the same purposes, it will also inform you of any meets happening around the country.

Please feel free to do as little or as much as you prefer. Some people arrange meets, do podcasts, video the sighting areas, meet the witnesses, other search online for any possible sighting account or strange experiences, and some members prefer to just sit back and observe. We will be contacting the Woodland Trust and other organisations over the year asking them for any possible disabled accessible areas we can use so all members can be included in the meet ups.

The lion seems remarkably calm.

Dude must have it down well.



Within and Without

Here’s the first poster for the newest film from my dear friend Frank S Petrilli!

It’s called Within and Without.

The tag line… “After death, life flows on.”

How Fortean is that?

And, if Frank is involved, it’s gonna kick ass!

I hope I get to see it soon.



I am totally disgusted with the non-performance of the people at DreamHost. It should be named NightmareHost. A lot more accurate.

Each person gave contradictory advice and recommended actions that contributed to the destruction that ensued. The commentary also indicated that most did not even look at the files in question, let alone the site. It the end it became rather repulsive. They seemed good in years past, but the staggering incompetence in this recent round made a mockery of the phrase “managed hosting.”

So I will try a new hosting company and hope for the best.

Should I send out 12,185 emails to the subscribers? What do you think? It is the only way to let them know… maybe a few just to see what happens.

No sleep tonight… 4:30am.

My disgust is now ANGER!

God help me, please.


I feel sick to my stomach


They ruined it. Slowly building since 2009, thousands of posts, gaining over 12,000 subscribers. All gone in the blink of an eye.

Fucking bastards.




They said it was database corruption that caused the outages.

And then they screwed up the database totally. And now all the subscribers are gone. All the categories and tags are gone from every post.

I am so livid I am just numb. And I give these basstards hundreds of dollars a year to manage it all.

Manage what? You got me?

And there’s no fucking way to tell the lost subscribers that they are lost.

I am going to go cry now.




This giant statue is a bronze rendition of Shakyamuni or Gautama Buddha, the man whose teachings are the foundation of the Buddhist religion. Known as the Tian Tan Buddha, this masterwork was completed in 1993 and is located at Ngong Ping, Lantau Island, in Hong Kong. The statue represents the harmony between man and nature, people and faith.
