    Same car many years later at the Dover Dragstrip Reunion 2015. Nunzi still owns it, talked to him at length about the old days. This race brings out some great old cars some like my MG are still racing and loving it.

    There were 2 powerplants in the Sour Grapes Willys. Started life with a Hilborn injected 327. Ended life with a 392 Hemi also Hilborn Injected. How have you been Nitrobrother?

    Coolest thing happened for me anyway. I was found on a site by a guy who was on my dads team in 1967 for the willys and a bit on the funny car.. He came over a few months ago and gave me this shirt. Its been in his closet for 45 years

    He is one of these guys in this picture.

    The Hemi in Sour Grapes is a late model. Not a 392

    I have never seen this picture before, thanks for posting! Emery Cook and Cliff Bedwell helped Garlits set up his carbs for nitro at this meet, and wound up getting beaten. Many years later Garlits repaid the favor by giving Emery Cook a ride in his rear-engined funny car.
