        Fred Bowden and Gran Prix Boats

        Fred never admitted it but he bank rolled Gran Prix Boats, at least that I what I feel. 34 was Fred's number when he ran MOD VP. Todd alwas=ys ran 34 on his tunnels. Todd never ran MOD VP. 148 was Dick Sherrer's number but Dick never owned a Gran Prix. Ed Lane did all of Dick's engine work and he and Bruce Borquinn (Gran Prix Boats) were always good friends.

        This 148 boat looks like the boat John Lane, Ed's son, ran in the PROP Formula One Tour in 1996. Well, actually only one race at Lake Mead. Ed bought John a new style Gran Prix for the 1998 season.

        John is the same John Lane that won the 2008 Blue Water Resort and Casino 300 Enduro!

          thanks Ron that helps
          so maybe my seller got it from the lanes do they live here in Fl is i would like to find out what i can from them if anyone has a number for them thats would be great



          from what i can tell even that the boat was left outside it look like it didnt get any water in either sponson looks like all the rot is just under the fairing the transom does have a small rotten spot beside the trim ram hole so im replacing that as well

                    Relax boss, when is your first race? never mind the fact that you don't need it to test or race its not mandatory.

                    Ron has his own web site you might try there instead of going crazy here on HRNET.

                    Peace out! :-)
