  1. Hey, there! I was a member of the Pharaohs Hot Rod Club in the old days and my photo appears in the Hot Rod magazine article you have shown above. I am at the far left in the second row and my Dad is fifth from the left in the second row. My name is Jim Bottenhorn and my Dad’s name was Don Bottenhorn. He was an adult advisor (and co-founder) of the Pharaohs and also the Regional advisor for the NHRA. There was also an article in another magazine a couple of years later. I have that issue and can scan it for you, if you’d like. Just let me know… JIM
