    A friend of mine sent me these pictures that a friend of his brother took. Must have been in the early 70s. Kansas John. Damn it was neat back then.

  2. I would date these at 1971,possibly '72. Note that his engine block is silver. It is a Donovan 417. Drag racings first dedicated racing engine. I think John was either the first, or one of the first, to use this new engine.

    As far as we have been able to verify,I had one of "Kansas Johns '' cars. It was supposed to have been a 67 car. It had spoilers in ft of the slicks, and was being bracket raced with a sbc.It had a 3/4 body,no tin past the eng.
