The original red paint job as seen on the cover of Hot Rod Magazine, before the better known yellow and the final persimmon (following the chassis...
I am not really sure what that car is trying to be. I saw it at the Nitro Revival at Laguna Seca last year where the team had a lot of problems...
Or maybe it was a match race deal (without too many rules) as Densham quite often ran with the gassers in So Cal before building his first funny...
I can't see why not--the doors and cowl are the same on all tri fives.
Here are some more from Pete Jensen's collection of Gotelli car shots. These are all of the beautiful and ill fated legs under car in which Denny...
Not really appropriate for this thread as this is a recent photo (as evidenced by the bogus 10 spoke front wheels)
Here are some shots of Ted Gotelli's car courtesy of my mate Pete Jensen who collated them. These are of the early car driven by Danny Milani....

My mate Richie Crampton originally built it with a twin turbo LS for drag week in 2017. He sourced a the wagon out of Texas and put a full tube...

Mike, in that era slicks were in short supply on the bottom half of the planet and a lot of drag racers relied on road race tires which were a lot...

Actually I think that you will find that it is a "Sideplate" or "Grey" Holden motor Jigger. The was the Australian arm of GM's powerplant from...
#1 Most street cars with blowers have carbs and having them level is usually a good idea
#2 The angle of what connects the components (engine,...
Why would you put boards under the front tires to level the frame? The frame rake has nothing to do with driveline alignment. If the carb...
I am guessing that this shot is a still from the movie "Bikini Beach"
The Sorokin on the hood was Mike who later went on to drive the famed Surfers top fuel car. George Bacilek also went top fuel racing as he was...
In 1984 during my first visit to the US I toured with Gary Densham's funny car on the west coast. We were at the Nightfire Nationals at Boise and...

With an auto darkening helmet it pays to get one with as many sensors as possible. My Arc-One helmet has four and it is pretty much impossible to...
I guess that old threads never die--this one came back after 10 years in HAMB limbo.
My mum drilled that into us as kids.
Even if they did they make sure that you hand them back in at the end of the event.
Actually if it really does run in the 9's it has to have a full cage and a window net to run at a NHRA strip.
Yep! Wrong thread for that photo.
