Both owned Knollwood Shell in Beavercreek.Anyone remember these guys?

Sorry, no pictures, but don't forget about "Fast Eddie" Schartman from the southwest side of Cleveland. I believe he's in the Drag Racer's Hall of Fame?

Those names are all familiar to me.Harold had a Pearl White 57' Nomad when we worked at the Shell station.Big Dan had a black Camaro with a set of HUGE rear tires.I seen Ohio George a few years back in Bowling Green Ky. at the Hot Rod Reunion;he gave me the news about Dick V.The last time I saw Dick was at the Hara Arena car show,he did have the T-bucket.I may have a picture of it somewhere.I also was told that Dallas is somewhere in the Carolinas.I loved working for these guys,great high school job & memories.Thanks for responding.

Nice thread , I'm not sure on the FED but the Blue Angles T/F was out of Massillion Ohio.
Stan Bowman from Canton bought Oties ol' AA/A then had a Woody Gilmore AA/A , Stan was the last driver for the Blue Angles T/F and started into Funny Cars, all his cars were "The Flying Dutchman" with the exception of " The Ohio State Patrol" Camaro F/C.
Tim McDonald from Canton was a multi NHRA event winner in Modified eleminator, D/MP with his 62 vette. Gordon
