    Default Got a Friend that needs a little help, Fellas

    By Jay Rogers


    What do you do when a friend reaches out to you for help? Personally, I do my level best to get them where they need to go. Today I am reaching out to you, and betting that you would be willing to do the same.



    Among us, we have a friend in need. A legend in the world of motorcycle drag racing and a great friend, GrandDaddy Joe Smith. Its no secret to anyone that getting older can be tough on you. Joe has had some issues in the last couple of years that have made getting around a bit more difficult and that have impacted his independence significantly.

    In the interest of helping a friend, I am working with Joe to establish this gofundme page. The goal is to help Joe raise enough money to install a lift device on his car to help him transport his mobility scooter. The total cost for the lift device and installation on his car is $3,000.00.

    Over the last couple of years, this has been a bit of an arduous journey for Joe. He thought he had everything worked out only to find out that his car would not handle the lifts available at the time. Well, now there is a new unit that fills the bill perfectly. It will work on his car, and it will lift his scooter with no issues.

    So, lets see what we can do. Any help is appreciated, even if it just means sharing the page and passing the word along. Thank you all in advance for your kindness and generosity!

    Pay-Pal is .../// fearnoevo@hotmail.com \\\...

    This will make it easy to lend a helping hand ....

    T-Shirts are in the works, soon will have them available ....



    A little history about that painting:

    In June of 2016, Harley-Davidson drag racing legend Joe Smith was accorded the honor by famous artist David Uhl of Colorado, who chose Joe after reviewing many photos of Harley-Davidson NHRA drag racing greats.

    David looked at photos of Elmer Trett on his double, Marion Owens, Ray Price, Pete Hill, Joe Thronson, and a host of others. The list of notable drag racers reviewed was very long really. He chose the shot of Joe Smith to work with for a number of reasons and it's the visual that draws in an artist in every time.

    The photo David chose to work with was an old B&W shot not bigger than a post card from an old newspaper, but the content had everything David likes to work with when he creates one of his works of art.

    First off, the motorcycle is a knucklehead-powered bike and its antique style and charm are something David was instantly drawn to. Add to that the visual of Joe holding the throttle wide open with one hand and reaching down to shift the bike with the other: this is just as old-school cool as it gets.

    Armed with a series of enlarged B&W examples of the photo with varying degrees of contrast and details of the various elements of Joe's drag bike, David went to work on this in the spring of 2016. The results were unveiled at the Harley-Davidson Museum where David personally unwrapped the artwork and presented it to the public on June 9, 2016. The art work is entitled “Granddaddy” as a tribute to Granddaddy Joe Smith.

    Smith, who made the photo available, had this to say about seeing his likeness in a painting, “I thought it was outstanding when I saw it. The amount of detail he created from a black and white scan of an old newspaper clipping is astounding. I feel very lucky and proud that he chose that picture to paint and unveil at the Harley-Davidson museum.”

    Well I'll be dipped in Sh*t
    I found a photo of Joe and that Knuck on the way to the track ...
