    I don't recall it winning any national meets, don't know about match racing. I do recall that the first one (driver by Butch Maas) was destroyed in a fire during a run. MT continued running the Grand Am body for a few more years.

    A Revell kit of the yellow car was re-issued awhile ago if you are looking for another kit to build. I wouldn't think it would be too tough to find on ebay or someplace else on-line.

    That Gold Coast Charger is alive and well again, I have it back together and made a pass last fall with it. It's in primer with one side still in the original lettering. Brad

    About the Paradise VW Dragster:
    It's front engine, it's a dragster, it's in motion... and super cool!!! I've followed this thread from the beginning. This thing fits here just fine! I drive a 1964 SPE Jr. Fuel on alky with a small block... (from Stockton, Ca.) it only runs 8 teens. With the new engine and a little NITRO it should run in the 7'60 class. The itty-bitty VW is a MONSTER!!! Thanks for the input!!!

  7. Can you give me a clue which picture your referring to, I would like to see it, but I'm too lazy to look through almost 17,000 posts. Thanks

    Nice early Baracuda. Probably would have gained 5mph without the scoop! Whereabouts did you race?

    Al, Love these photos from Larry Langston. Chrisman kicking back on the ramper is great.

    Dan Horan Jr, driving the new Horan/Rooman Top Fuel Dragster at the 2010 March Meet. I can tell you the car is bitchin with all the trick parts. Rooman is a true craftsman.

    Al, you might have out done yourself with that last post! Awesome shots. The side by side of Stone, Woods and Cooke and Dyno Dons Cougor is KILLER. Thanks. Slim

    Man, funny cars on open ramp trucks! Those WERE the days!!! It's probably been on here already, but who has photos of Leonard and Wolford's "Secret Weapon" Jeep? Whenever I saw it, if it didn't break it hauled.
