Yesterday Pat was driving his restored his iconic Ike dragster at the estranged drags north of me at Riverdale Raceway strip when his car crashed. Not sure yet what happened, but was told the car simply went off the end of the 1/8 mile strip without stopping.
Pat was a huge influence in the hotrod scene for what seems like forever. His passing is a huge loss to the world and hobby we love.

That's too bad. I subscribed to his newsletter "Pat Ganahl's Rod and Custom " which I always looked forward to reading. had He had great stories & photos. The last connection to Rod & Custom magazine is gone too.
I was beginning to wonder if anyone knew who Pat was, or how much a part of hotrodding he helped report on. Thanks for your reply.
