    Phil and Martha Lippard ran a series of alterds with a variety of drivers and car names out of Silver Springs, MD. As well as this "Mean as Hell" roadster they also raced a Fiat and a Bantam with the constant factor seeming to be an injected 488" big block Chevy on both gas and fuel. Drivers included Bill "Pudge" Tarbet in this car and a Fiat with the same name. Mark Emery drove the Wild Rat Fiat, Don Settle drove the Stone Crude as both a T and a Bantam and Dave Christensen also drove the Bantam.
    As late as 2012 they were still active although now racing out of Tennessee with a new Wild Rat Fiat driven by their son Greg.

    I don't know about that particular car, but they have a recreation of an earlier version with the engine up a bit more proud. They go to many of the Cackle Fests around the country with it.
    Mike Tocco was at the NHRA Museum cruse night Wednesday with his 57 Chevy. Kind of a "Gasser" style car. Didn't take any photos.

    One of the British drag racing tours from 1964 or ‘65. OK guys, the rain stopped, run ‘em. Must have been a bit exciting at speed with slicks on a wet track.

    Henslee and Cook, near side, versus Milt Alley, Santa Maria...Milt is out on Henslee because he was using a transmission, the Henslee & Cook car was one of the first to use direct drive...they won the race.
