    My first time racing at New England Dragway, September 14th, 1970. 327 with a 4 spd and 4.11's. Drove to track, opened the headers, raced and drove home. Put quite a few miles on that track ina number of different cars over the past 50+ years. Very happy that we still have the track and fortunate it's less than an hour's drive from my house.

    Anybody remember a car with an army tank body on it?
    Maybe a funny car or an exhibition car?
    I think it was a Northeastern car

    TFoch you always come through for me! Do you know if it was Ford powered?
    I ask because I remember a picture of the car hanging in Ed Havigamian's shop.
     
  18. Quick search said it was a Blown Big Block Chevy.
