Roly Leahy

Post by Flathead Kustoms on Fri Jan 23, 2009 2:59 am

Not sure if anyone can confirm or deny this, but I was told earlier in the week by my father in law (Rock n Roll Reg for those who know of him) that unfortunately Nostalgia Drag Racer and custom car importer Roly Leahy passed away on Tuesday night. I'm not sure of any more details. Reg (my father in law) used to drag race alongside him over 30 years ago, at Surfers Paradise International Raceway. Our thoughts are with the Leahy family, he will be sorely missed.

Yep I heard that too. He was well respected in a number of circles.
Flathead Customs, if you're Reg's son in law than I get where the flathead link is. I have 8 pistons out of my Cusso at the moment having a freshen up. I might lean on you guys if I get stuck for some advice Question
