(Original Post from 2017, for the 50th Annual Tribute)

The Southern AZ Pantera Club had a great time, at the 50th Hank Arnold tribute. Hank Arnold was an old-school vintage racer, who built some really neat cars.

There were some really cool cars there.

They got the Hank Arnold “Twister” out on the track, and a couple of other vintage mobiles.

The group met Hank’s wife, Dianna Patrick (wife of an old-time drag racer), and we spent a lot of time with Jake Mendoza. He was a fun guy.

Jake built a number of the vintage dirt trackers that raced back in the day. He had a lot of stories to tell.

Here’s a couple of pix…. Unfortunately the racing shots didn’t come out.
