    as you can see, I had a fetish for the "ASSASSINATION" cars...

    they were always so well detailed...
    but anything John Pugh did was very nice...
    he had a particular style, didnt he?

    i think i have a photo of the Hot Sauce car here somewhere as well
    was that out of Fargo?
    Dwayne Engness? (sp?)

    Yea your right he was from N. Dakota.
    Guzman did have first class stuff.

    The Dart Sport body was painted by Ron Avers from Denver. Ron had his style also.

    I remember a guy bringing the body to Bandimere one night strapped to his crew cab pick up truck with a for sale sign on it $600.00 it still had Guzman's paint job on it.
    I wish I could buy it today for that.

    That was Ron Schillereff. Ron bought that car new, took the 396 out and replaced it with a 427. The chevelle ran hard, in the mid 10's, that was hard to do back in the day! Ron was a first class racer, his chevelle and outher race cars were alway super clean, FAST, and perfect. To this day Ron still races at Bandimere in a 2003 Chevy "daily driver" that runs in the high 12's.

    Ratster, Here is a picture of Century 21... Before and after, It's hard to believe that this track never was reopened after it closed in the early 70's and it's still there today.

    I remember that weekend at Indy, I booked all the cars in that weekend for the Good Guys....that was the first time ever for that many Nostalgia Funny Cars to assemble in one place.
    We had 10 Vintage Funny Cars on the property, we ran them Chicago Style , no breakage, no oil downs and the two finalist both ran in the 6 second zone at over 200 mph.
    It was a lot of fun.

    The Nostalgia Funny Car movement has sure grown sense then.
