  2. SFX1-1 9.jpg the flag/shirt start we had to tell the starter what to do he never flagged a race before. the crowd went crazy. the big guy behind my car is jett townsend. he also worked on the jakes speed equip (candies and hughes) car i drove. jett as you can see is a big guy in virginia when the jakes car shelled a trans jett thinking the car was on fire reached in and just about ripped me out of the car not worried about his own safety. now thats a crew member. thanks jett

  3. SFX1-4 5.jpg here is a shot from the super stock reunion richmond va. I'm racing rocky perone from philadelpia a good guy and a hard core a/gas racer. the crowd was really polarized due to the internet pre race talk. it was a/gas vs. s/fx. joel naprestak flagged us off i won the race and the a/gas crowd said i jumped. we took a video to the radir wheel trailer and watched it. i didn't jump. there was a crowd outside the trailer to hear the news on who won. i didn't think people could get so into us racing. rocky won the next race when i pushed a seal out of the bruno and set the car on fire. just another day at the track

  5. You would knock 'em dead if you were to show up to make a couple passes at the Meltdown drags or Hunnert Car Heads Up! I remember watching you run at the grove and Rt 66 raceway early 2k's and thinking that got to be the badest AFX ever. You always put on a great show.
     
  6. thanks slayer glad to see you liked the show. every now and then we layed a lemon. those damn nitro cars have a way of humbling you once in a while.

    That first shot is when we first picked it up and it was actually worse than it looks...then I dropped a carport on it. Long Winters make for plenty of shop time I guess.

    Polara Pat - the wagon is very cool nice work.

    Racer X - Is Franksville WI the hot bed of AWB Mopars? There appear to be quite a few of them there, although I will say none quite as impressive as yours. I am headed down that way to see a recreation of Snows 65 Dart.

  9. i don't know why but there does seem to be more in this area than in any other part of the country. also the ones around here all see track time. no one is saying my car is so rare and valuable i can't race it. the charlie allen car may come out this year if i have time to shake it down. its the real deal and runnered up at the 65 nats at indy. it has only been in the public twice since restored.

  14. I do have photos from bruce larsons drag fest. I took it there some years ago. It was with the honker dodge on display. The car is not mine but the owner did indicate he wants to race it. I have my shop up now and have time to wring it out. I will keep everyone posted on the progress. It should run mid to low nines. Im very confident in that and if it doesnt there is always nitro to spur it along EVERY THING GOES FASTER WITH NITRO

  15. SFX1-4 4.jpg here is a photo taken at cordova il. the good looking guy in the photo is my right hand man. his nick name is eagle eye because he spotted a number of things on the car before they became a big problem. he is also one of the best mechanics i have known. his name is keith christenson. if you saw us at the track you most likley saw keith somewhere by the car.
