Little Tommy Larkin

Postby draglist » Mon Oct 24, 2011 2:23 pm

Little Tommy Larkin of Weiss & Larkin fame passed away Friday night, October 21, 2011.

UPDATE: Little Tommy did pass away in 2011, but I was informed on 11-24-13 that my former link identifying Tommy as the former Gas Dragster and Top Fuel racer TOM Larkin of North Hollywood was incorrect. Tom is still kicking as of 11-24-13. Confusing things further is the fact that Little Tommy DID license in Tom Larkin's Larkin-Carson-Larkin AA/DA in 1974. Thanks to Mrs. Larkin for the update and my sincere apologies for the mix up. Of course, condolences are still in order for Tommy's family and friends. bp

I havent ventured here in a while and when I do, I see the loss of one of So-Cal's former staples in the top gas/top fuel circuit. RIP to Tom

Please see the update at the top of this thread. I misidentified the deceased Little Tommy Larkin as the former Top Gas and Top Fuel racer Tom Larkin, who is still with us. My sincere apologies. bp
