    Geez guys, I go to Bakersfield to run the AA/FD and due to a crappy internet connection at the legendary Vagabond Motel I miss getting on the HAMB for a few days and then when I get back to the real world in LA I have to wade through a couple of dozen pages of pix.I am flying back to Indy in the morning and had planned to get an early night but Muttley and co just made that impossible--thanks guys.

    Roo
    ps I was so busy with the car at the CHRR that I did not get to take any pix (for the first time ever) but once I get some of my runs from my photographer mates I will try to post them here.

  18. Eric, I don't remember a return road on the West side of Muncie Dragway??? The line up of gassers is Muncie but the single car photo doesn't look correct...or is it?

    I have seen that Garlits Dart photo before, it does make you wonder where most of these old cars posted here are now.

    Garlits Dart, the one sitting derelict in that photo, is sitting in his museum, complete. The body has not been restored, it was just cleaned up.

    I am will always be greatful to God for letting me own and drive such a neat car that never fells to give me a thrill!

    Thanks Royal Shifter for starting this thread and to the many others who have contributed pictures.

    Not a lick this year, but I think we'll be on it soon. I was real busy with business this year, now I've changed companies, have more time, getting the shop re-equipped, etc. I'm hopefull it'll be up on wheels, if not running, but the end of summer 2011.
    Thanks for asking!

    ^^^ I believe that body was behind Garlits' shop. From what I remember. ^^^
     
  28. I saw that car in Garlits' museum and on display in 1993 so it has been with him at least that long. Paint was old and weathered and appeared original at that time.

    I was at Detroit Dragway the day the Dart body flew off. It launched straight up towards the end of the run.

    No I dont think it is. Korney retianed his car for many years. It was also Chrysler powered not Chevy. Also the body here bares a slightly different shape and form than that used by Korney and he relied on American spokes on the front, not Halibrands as depicted here.
