BEST WISHES TO AL "MOUSIE" MARCELLUS OF "WINGED EXPRESS" NITRO ALTERED FAME...

A couple of days ago it was brought to my attention by the folks from the Nitro Heads facebook page, that Al "Mousie" Marcellus of "Winged Express" Nitro Altered fame had underwent hip replacement surgery. I'm happy to report that he's now recovering well. I recall that several years ago, when "Mousie" towed the "Winged Express" car all the way from California to Englishtown (with an old pick-up truck), that even at that time, "Mousie" was already having some difficulty physically getting around, I believe when I interviewed him for Drag Racing Underground's "Funny Car Reunion Raw" dvd, he even needed to sit down during the interview because standing up for an extended length of time was sort of painful for him... So hopefully the hip surgery he just underwent will make him capable of getting around more freely and without any pain. I'm well aware that he's got a lot of grueling physical therapy ahead of him, as do all folks who get a hip replacement, but I know that "Mousie" is a strong and courageous fellow, so he should be able to endure it and get himself back to running on all eight cylinders. I'm sure that I speak for lots of people in the drag racing community when I sincerely wish "Mousie" the very best for a full and healthy recovery...

 

Al "Mousie" Marcellus and yours truly at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park.  I interviewed the "Winged Express" Nitro Altered legend for Drag Racing Underground's "FUNNY CAR REUNION RAW" dvd. "Mousie" was very reflective during the interview because this was his first visit back to E'Town in decades. We wish him a full and healthy recovery from his recent surgery...
