Default Re: "66 Chevelle "Goldfinger" Fayetteville NC dragstrip

I wasn't aware that it still existed (or kept track of). Did the original engine survive? Now I'm wondering if the '66 Chevelle "Goldfinger" survived.

Yes it is still around, we found it in the late 80's in Red Springs NC, paid thru the nose to get the car - then again to get the original motor, you could still see the faded Crown Royal on the doors and Royal Dodge on the quarters, it was totally restored back to "as new" condition and has been in the family ever since. I will post some more pictures soon.

I'm from the flatlands, so we don't have the valleys like you do there.... I can still hear the echoes of that Bad assed Hemi comin' from the far side of the valley back to ya.The time I spent at Ft. Bragg are special to me.. it was the best of times and the worst of times.. I'm really glad you were able to save the big Dodge. That car is an icon. Lots of people either rooted for or against it when it would come to the final round and it would more times than not be the "Goldfinger" and the Royal Dodge for all the money. Thanks for the memories.
