    I think your assesment is on the mark. Perhaps there was too many flopper circuits crammed into too small a region. Who knows. But I am to the task of making a chronicling of the various barnstorming circuits. Let me know whats involved.

    Amazing that an acid dipped, aluminum nosed '64 Mopar with a home made roll bar can roll over like that and still make another pass. Try that with any modern POS with all the mandated scientific safety goodies and you'll likely need the coroner to make next pass for ya'!
    :cool:

    They were thinking, "Who gives a shit, we're having a good time!" And, "HAHAHA! Let's run it again!"

    They were not thinking it was a 64 hemi race car. Back then it was just another car.

    Hawkins, Webster, & McLeod...now sort of restored...so what's with the "Speed Parts by Ma Zard"? "Ma Zard" was Jim Busby's mother, and as long as son-in-law Mike Bartlett drove the car, Ma Zard paid for the parts...good deal all around.
