REST IN PEACE OUR DEAR FRIEND "OUTLAW" PRO STOCK AND STREET RACER RUFUS "BROOKLYN HEAVY" BOYD...
"Bklyn Heavy" sure was a big name in Pro Stock and Outlaw Street Racing back in the 1970's... "Bklyn Heavy" drove, and when not driving, he often enlisted the driving talents of Herb McCandless... "Heavy's" mean and clean Plymouth Dusters were a favorite among fans of Pro Stock's golden era (the 70's)... I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing "Bklyn Heavy" a few years ago... Drag Racing Underground was the guest of the Brooklyn, New York "Head Hunters" car club, the "Head Hunters" were having a big block party that featured a sizable car show, barbecue, and "on the street" burnout contest... I conducted an on-camera interview with "Bklyn Heavy" at the party, outside of a funky corner "bodega" (a small Spanish food and snack store)-- DRU has only released that interview to some folks from the H.A.M.B. board, but we'll have to make it more available to others... "Bklyn Heavy" was very nice and polite to me, a real gentleman, he shared some of his memories with me and even spoke of his desire to campaign another car at the drags... I know that I will always remember Rufus "Brooklyn Heavy" Boyd, and I know that there's certainly lots of other folks in the drag racing community who won't ever forget him--Rufus Boyd lived a full and colorful life, and there's no denying that he made drag racing history with his "Brooklyn Heavy" Pro Stockers... Heres a thought and prayer that Rufus "Brooklyn Heavy" Boyd may now Rest In Peace... Diana
