If you have been following the #99 Higgins unfold here over the past couple weeks, Brett Fecho is on the case and digging like a fiend through old family albums. The good news is Brett is actually finding stuff. And we are trying our best to clean them up so you can get some sort of idea what we are dealing with.
Its painful, cause you want to just hop into the car and go look for the stuff that you know will expose its history. But Brett is doing a great job and the best part is he is willing to share as it unfolds. Good or bad. And that is as good as being there.
Another thing we are finding is that there is very little info on Higgins Speed Boats. Sounds like Katrina may have finished off some history. So maybe we can patch together some more info. A huge thanks to the team at the Higgins Classic Boat Assosiation site.
This is a perfect case why its so critical to have an archive and focused club that protects and harvests such information. Like the Chris Craft Antique Boat Club. It must stay true to its vision and focus. It keeps the brand from the past alive,
