RIP Lee Leighton
« on: September 19, 2014, 05:47:05 PM »
VW drag racing legend Lee Leighton passed away this morning, the victim of a heart attack.  Lee was one of the
Riverside guys who was around with Darrell Vittone, Chas Morse, Fumio Fukaya and Johnny Rue to name a few.
Here's a couple of pics of his red drag racer scrounged off the internet and a few I took a while back when he decided
to hit the track again.  God Speed
