    A recent publication suggested that Cliff Bedwell had retired down here in New Zealand.
    I would appreciate the opportunity to possibly make contact with him if anyone can provide further details please.

    I would love the same opportunity to meet with him and am on the search also. If anyone knows anything.
     
  3. I saw them awhile back at Lions, must have been 1958 or '59. They set a record that night.

    Emory Cook ran 166 when the previous record was 159 (?)...the run was so far above the record that all the SoCal tracks banned nitro shortly after, and NHRA soon followed..'56 or early '57, I think....Emory died years ago, don't know if anyone in the San Diego area might have contract information for Cliff Bedwell...

  5. Yes, 58 or 59 qualifies as "a while back" alright. ;)
     
  6. At my age, anything prior to today is a while back. It all gets blurry at that point.
