Anybody post a pic of Don Gay's Pontiac????
Things were a little "rougher" back then...
(Unremembered magazine scan)
This was originally Tasca's car. I'd sure like to see what it looks like today!
Collector here on the HAMB has a 65 fastback gasser from the era.....maybe he will post photos.
Hey Funny Car 65, that sure was a great reunion for all things Hemified at Salem last year, huh. Thanks for posting some pics from that once in a lifetime deal. Pretty cool spending 3 days with the 5 surviving AFX cars. Here's a pic of the Landy car and the Faubels with their old racecar.
That "tension" car is amazing!
Shirl Greers car. They cut the top off later.
i was hoping to find a car like mine in this thread but no luck..heres what i want to build a AWB car out of...im still not real sure of what it is..anyone of ya'll know for sure???..i was hoping to see one so i could see how they match the body lines up...the engine is outta a 52 chrysler i have out back..not sure on a start date but as soon as i get the 4 cars out of the shop that are there now..i'll be rolling it in
well i just did more research and found it ...its a 61 dodge lancer...although im sure it said dart on it..i need to go out back and look at it again...
That will be one wild awb. build it suicide king style!
that car ended up being totally hacked up...think it even got a bobtail job done on it...... got to read the rest of the post
Gene Heidorn's AWB '56 Ford with 427 power.
cool funnycar..thats very close..but that a valiant i think..same body almost..gives me ideas...humm could just shove my 39, 51 and the 62 fords outta the shop and drag the old dodge in ..ha ha ha ha ha
Cooool thead! I havent figured out how to get my pictures on my posts yet but any way take a look at my albumn.
I have been runing this car in c/gas (no etrons) found out the history at dragfest.
any help posting pics?
killer pics ..need more
This car was for sale in National Dragster for like $200K. Was not even an original factory race car nor did it have a famous pedigree!
It does have an altered wheel base, look at the wheel well and how it goes into the door.
The only way it could look more wicked was if it was a wagon!! Go for it.
AWB means an altered wheelbase factory chassisied car.
AWB does not refer to ANY drag car with an altered wheelbase. It does not mean it literally.
Before you start correcting some of us who were there, you might want to do a little more reading.
You go to a nostalgia race and see if all the old timers agree with your thinking...
It would be like saying, "yeah, its a fuel car..it runs on gas and gas is a fuel"
Well, yes, gas is a fuel...BUT the word "fuel" applied to drag racing means anything BUT gasoline....
Also, please refer to the bold.
Darn...I would have thought "altered wheel base" would have simply meant a car with an altered wheel base. Guess I better research Stock cars and Funny cars to see what they stand for??
I stay away from ratrod though!
