Great car in all it's forms. I belive that it started out as a 4-speed car. Bob Plumer has a neat early shot of it at Aquasco, MD in the pits with the rear jacked up.

I might have a drag paper/ad shot of it somewhere ... poor quality though. Paul Vanderly drove it. Give me some time, remind me if I forget it ... pretty busy lately.

I think the Ramsey Swiss Cheese car was sold to Larry Johnson Pontiac in Clinton Iowa. Beswick worked there and was sponsored by Johnson for some period of time. Larry himself got into the race action in '62 with a Super Duty Beswick prepped red Catalina. When they got the '63 they altered it and it became known as "The Funny Tiger". It even had a plexiglass hood scoop. A friend of ours Allan Ranz owned the car from the mid 70's til the early 80's when he sold it to Bill Blair. Allan also owned Beswick's '61 Ventura from 1965 to 1998. We helped him restored it in '96 back to the way it looked when Arnie raced it. It sold last spring for $170,000.[/quote]

I used to visit Bill Blair each year on my trips through the South ... somewhere I have pictures of his shop and the "Cheesers" he owned including the AWB car or Larry Johnson. Bill sold it a few years ago.

Attached is Beswick's '61 car when it was pretty new ... from a Florida based drag newsletter put out by Ernie Schorb. Beswick was a big winner at the NASCAR Winternationals for a few years.

Here's the first of two Mopar shots ... both from May '64 at Cecil Co., MD NHRA points/record meet.

First up is Bud Faubel's wedge '64 car on the return road awaiting the fuel check I imagine, don't recall exactly. Note the single headlight hemi grille!

Second Mopar, another Dodge at Cecil in May '64. This one is the Strickler-Jenkins '64 wedge car. Another hemi grille in a wedge car.

Default Dyno Don!

First of two Chevrolets ... in 1962 Dyno Don Nicholson made a big move from Southern California to the deep South and Atlanta, GA to be in the center of the growing S/S-F/X-match racing scene where the big S/S cars were king. This is a drag paper (Nat. Dragster) copy from the Covington, GA strip ... note the "Southern Style" setup ... much more radical rake to the suspension, big slicks (no 7" tires), jacked-up-in-the-rear hood and air ducts to the carbs in the inner headlights. Love this stuff!

Default Jere Stahl

Last one from me for tonight ...

One of Jere Stahl's early stockers ... a G/S '56 Chevy wagon. Again at the May 1964 NHRA meet at Cecil Co., MD. That's Stahl to the far left in the striped pants. Nose of Faubel's Dodge to the right.

Hit "quote" at the bottom and write your reply then click on the paper clip to post you picture/scan. "Browse" to go where you have the scan filed and upload it ... be sure it's not too big of a file.

Hope that helps, may be too brief ... my apologies if so.

Eager to see what you have.

I think I only have magazine pics of Droke's '65 car, nothing new. I'm sure I don't have anything on Ritchie's '65 Fairlane ... it was a small block car if I remember correctly.

Great stuff on the Black Arrow! Thanks Dean. I met up with Doc Burgess by accident at a car show and tractor pull in Winston-Salem, NC about 6-7 years ago. He was involved in tractor pulling at the time. I had my art set up and he came over. We promised to remain in contact but we didn't.
Here's Jenkins driving the Arrow at Cecil Co.,MD at the '65 CARS magazine meet. The car was slightly altered here, just the rear and I believe was running injectors, maybe fuel. I dig this shot. My apologies for the poor resolution.

Here's one for Dean ... from the TACH, the1965 AHRA Nationals program edition which I don't have but wish I did! Note that the car is a Dodge, not a Plymouth.

Another from the AHRA Nationals program ... Grady Bryant's Dick Harrell engined and setup 1965 Chevelle. Harrell was instrumental in a number of Chevelles, Novas and match race Chevrolets before leaving the NM-TX area.

By the way, Dave's Z-11 was the first one built. Think he was connected back then?

Joel, this is like the old Yahoo group days!!
I think those wheels might be Motor Wheel Fly's.

Here's a picture of my Z-11 look alike.
