    WOW,everybody is getting their issue of Car Craft except me!!!! I'm dying here!!!!! Ken;as usual you find some great old pictures!!The wagon will look great rolling into a track with the 64 on the trailer.With diesel so high now it will probably be cheaper to use than the truck!!!That blue wagon looks like a 9 passenger version. ROY.

    Hi Roy,

    Your car is an inspiration! I've got a long way to go, but you have set a great target to shoot.

    How much tubb'n did you put in the back end?

    Regards, John

    Good Job, I didnt think of that. Tech inspection in front of woolworths, how cool is that.
    That other Comet had to be the Shrewsberry comet.

    Good Job Roy ,Got my Copy yesterday. Hollywood Roy, Stay Classy Camarillo

    dscomet;I used an Alston rear frame section that is the same width as the front subframe.I run a 12" wide rear wheel with a 13.5" wide slick and could easily run a 14" wide wheel and larger slick if necessary.Thank You to you and the others on the kind words on the article on my Comet,I got my issue Saturday afternoon. ROY.
     
  11. I went looking for a Car Craft mag this weekend but could only find last months issue.
    My car trailer should be done this week. Will first race for my comet will be June.
    Keep those old comet pics coming guys.

    Myron;they told me they were going to put in a picture or two from Irwindale as they work with the track photographer,no dice.OH WELL,I'm still happy,they at least covered something besides an LS powered whatever.It kills me that CC,PHR and HR spend so much time on Chevy stuff when they put out a Chevy rag,WTF,!!!!!! ROY.

    Some awesome footage on this video clip. Worth watching Classic 1964. Starts out with some Front engine Dragster in Bakersville, Throw in a Beach party with some of the old racers and ends up at the 1964 Winternationals. At the 12:28 mark there is Ronnie Sox running against Ed Rashinski in the Marauders Comet( didnt even know he was at that race), Dyno Don in the wagon Against the Mystery 790 AFX Comet. And a couple HiRiser 64 Lightweight Galaxies,And a Thuderbolt to boot.

    Cool stuff

    Heres a second video. Non Comet related but worth the watch. Saftey Standards in early Racing.

    jsz03;yes it got a bit crooked off of the line!! I thought I had moved over enough to miss the mess,no harm,no foul,except my 60' time.That was a fun day,a lot of Fords of every style,a long drive though for a one day race[about 9 hours]!! ROY.
