    When I read this, I heard "Livin in the USA" come on in my head...by Steve Miller years ago.

    Also, who was "Lefty Mudersbach"? Name heard in that song.

    Lefty was a drag racer from the 50's or early 60's.....I bought an LP way back in about '61 with drag racing sounds and he and the sound his dragster made was on it. Lefty Mudersbach
    Born: March 21, 1931

    Died: February 11, 1966

    Buried:

    Age: 34

    Full Name: Allen Mudersbach

    Nickname: "Lefty"

    Drag Strip: Irwindale Raceway, Irwindale, California

    Event: AHRA Winternationals

    Accident Date: February 11, 1966

    Car: "Lefty's Speed Shop" AA/FD

    Biographical: He suffered fatal injuries when his dragster blew a tire traveling at about 180 MPH and overturned several times. It happened when he was making a single pass during a qualifying run. He was apparently dazed when he was hit in the head by the disintegrating tire and failed to deploy the chute or apply the brakes. The driver's compartment was wrenched loose from the frame by the impact of the car flipping over and hurtled 300 feet. He was transported to Santa Teresita Hospital in Duarte where he was dead on arrival. A resident of Pico Rivera, California, he was survived by his wife, Bobbie, and three children, Sharryl, Dennis, and Brian. He operated a speed shop in Whittier. He was NHRA national champion in 1957, running out of Phoenix with an Olds-powered A/GD. He was the winner of the first AHRA championship in 1960. He had been a drag racer for twenty years. He had the first gas dragster to record a sub-10 second e.t., accomplished in July 1957 at Lions Drag Strip with a 9.93 run. He moved to California in 1959, teaming up with Chet Herbert. They ran twin Chevy engines on gas, setting a world mark of 195 MPH with an 8.53 e.t. They won Bakersfield in 1961. Mudersbach and Herbert split up their partnership in 1963-64. The car he was driving at the time of his fatal crash was owned by Dick Goss.

    There are few countries left where people can have bulk ammo delivered to their door. The tree hugger, granola munchin, late sucking, echo-dem turds considers a delivery like this intent to commit a crime. We do live in a great country.

    Be active, stay involved, pay attention, and never give an inch!

    Thanks Ljutic 73, yes, it sure is great livin in the USA as per the first post. Didn't mean to hijack this, but...I did not know all that about Lefty Muderbach. In the early 60's, he used to visit some hot rodding people, older guys, and we kids rather looked on wide eyed at Olds powered roadsters and the like...Waxing nostalgic. Thanks and kudos, where did you find that info, sounds like a good source/resource.

    Didn't know he passed, didn't realize google had such a strong base re. so many sports. Thanks. It seems just like yesterday he was sitting at my friends place having lunch with his parents. We were mayber 12, 13 years old at the time. The OP brought those memories of Americana right back to me...thanks again.

    Out of curiosity,I checked to see what that would cost me to Alaska.

    I used ableammo.com

    $430.50 for 50 boxes of AA

    Estimated shipping:

    Zipcode:
    Shipping method(s) for United States
    UPS Shipping Options [4 pkgs x 30 lbs total]
    UPS Ground $342.42
    UPS 2nd Day Air $522.82
    UPS Next Day Air $750.77

    this did not tell me how much the hazmat fee fee would be

    When the Marlin 338 first came out,ammo was far and few between at best so I checked online,the hazmat added close to $100 extra for 1 box of ammo

    Lots of places have good deals on shipping ammo right now. No hazmat fee at the three places I called. Only hazmat on powder and primers.

    Maybe the hazmat fee is because it would leave the continental states to another state.
