Action Figures Friday: Harley Race and Ric Flair from 1983

Photographs by Mike Simmerman

We haven't done "Action Figures Friday" in awhile, and I thought I'd bring it back this week after receiving an email from collector/custom creator Mike Simmerman:

"In light of Harley’s recent passing, I wanted to pass [these] along. I tried to recreate how I always remember Harley posing during his introductions: robe untied, hands raised, proudly displaying the ten pounds of gold."  - Mike Simmerman

I can visualize exactly what Mike is talking about. I asked Mike if he had a photo of him with Harley he'd like to share, and he sent me this:
