Here's the "Dyno" Don Nicholson '64 Comet a few months before I bought it in 1980.

This one runs at my local 1/8mi. The plate says "ALTERED", he drives it in, runs 5's, drives it home.

One of my favorite subjects. One with plates that I minitubbed a couple weeks ago. My tribute to the Comet drag cars. Ran an all motor 11.20 in the quarter last week.

The Hayden Proffitt 612 car seems to go back and forth, with and without injector stacks? do I need thicker glasses? more caffiene?
