Thanks for the heads up.Just terrific shots.
Ditto, thanks for the pics, great shots
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.
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.
You Go Keith.
NICE ! That Sundance Charger is one of Don Schumacher's old cars.Thanks for posting. Dennis Doubleday
Thank you Mutley for taking the time to post these pics...brings back a TON of great memories!
Then and Now.
The "Wing" 30ish years ago and last Sun at "Bako"
Cole Coonce has a good eye.
Pretty damn cool.
Or an even clearer way,,,,,,,check the background,the pilots and the smoke.
What's old is now new>LOL
thats a awesome pic of kiwi 56!
Finding an item like that is hitting the lottery!!!!
Found these today which is from our old track, Muncie Dragway. 1963
clark & clark opel....
is this the steve korney "stone woods and cooke" vette...?
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.
Love seeing how the old tracks were setup, with no barriers, that's just crazy man!!
hey rooman, congratulations on running the car, phil said you ran 6.3, really stout first time out. phil.t.
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.
Damn! How about that Mike Boyd and the Wing!
Think Ol' Willie may have been along for the ride!
That Mike Boyd is a class act indeed!
Give'm Hell Mike!
How about the Willys and the wheel stand!
Gives me chills thinking that I have one in the garage at home that will do the same thing!
Never fells to give me a thrill to get in my Willys coupe. Prime the injectors and light the candles!
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.
Now back to the Jack Daniels and the ever loving honeybun!

1940 Willys Coupe
storm King, any more progress on your car?
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!
more info on these pictures please !!!!!!!
^^^ I believe that body was behind Garlits' shop. From what I remember. ^^^
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.
