    Ford only made 57 1966 427 Fairlanes so they weren't legal in Stock eliminater back in 67-8. But Ford made many more '67's in various body styles and NHRA said the '67's were legal--So many of the '66''s were converted-mainly grilles, headlight housings and taillights--the obvious pieces. The 2 door Fairlane sedans fit the class the best so a lot of guys ran them as time passed. As I recall the sedan was only 5 pounds over the minimum weight for A/S--which became B/S then C/S.

    Tweed--You are indeed corresct sir! Garey was ALWAYS quick on both the starting line and in E.T. department. I have heard that story about wanting Boertman in the semi's---that was a weird rule about the final round. I'm thinking real serious about buying a '64 Cutlass post and running a 425 stick combo. and streeting it---my '69 W31 racer (lettered and slicks) draws alot of attention on the street. Until next time..... Dave.

    Someone has an old Junior Stock '57 sedan delivery for sale in the classifieds on classracer.com. Ad says it has been parked since '72. I can't afford another project now but I thought somebody on here might be interested.

    That Camaro, I think was formerly Tony Feil's car and was run in E and F/MP. "Super Melon" on the back referred to the color....it was green. Tony had an Anglia and it was a purple-ish color and that car was called the "Super Grape"......

    I recall Jay got a new Super T-10 ......I might have installed it because he had difficulty doing it himself at home on his garage floor. I could get under the car and lay the trans on my chest and hike it up into the bellhousing for him....put one bolt in and he did the rest.

    The new trans seized a gear on the mainshaft in one or two runs.......I took the gears off the main shaft and honed them to loosen them up and replaced anything that was ruined. Tony advised him to do this as the gears were usually too tight......

    I think the car ran mid to high 11's in F/MP. I can also recall being up at Cayuga at a WCS race and Jay was fretting over what tires to run......A-140's or B-140's. ....I was having my own problems with carburetor issues ..... That Camaro picture was probably from around 1970.....

    Boy, I wish I had the money and I hope it goes to the right person.

    Location: Everett, Wa. State Price: $12,000.00 ​
    <!-- message -->This is a former NHRA Junior Stock Class drag car, O/SA, 1957 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery. It was parked in 1972 when the class was shelved. Engine is a 220 HP 283 with Duffy's pistons, Lunati Cam, Elks Service Heads, Stahl fenderwell headers, with a Powerglide/stall converter and 4.88 rear end gears. I bought it to put back on the street, but now I've bought ANOTHER 1956 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery (now I have 2), so the 57 has to go. Needs tires and floor work (typical tri-five Chevrolet rust issues). I have some new and used parts I've bought that will go with the car. This would make an excellent Nostalgia class car, or to put back on the street. Butch/56sedandelivery.

    I was admiring this Javelin photo when I noticed the bumper sticker. Do you remember this Javelin ad? It was a favorite of mine back then.
    Not sure who's Javelin the photo is of. It looks like it may be Ron Root but I remember that car running in SS/F and not H/Stock. Anyway, here's that ad from 1968.......

    So that makes sense -- But still my unanswered question? Was Tom's "67" hardtop his 66 white car "updated to 67" and repainted? I always wondered if he sold the 66 and got a 67 or if it was just his old one upgraded. It would make sense that it was the old one since he was "caught" ( or dis-allowed from) running the glas hood. Did you ever see pix of his "white" Dave Smith 66 car?

    :cool:If you look at the picture of Tony Feil's camaro it does kinda fit the JR. Stock deal in that Iaconio's 57 and Lou's 57 corvette look to be towing in tandem, Frank's on the truck and Lou's on a trailer behind. Also, that looks like maybe Chuck Johnson's car on the other ramp truck. Saw something about Ed Merkel a few pages ago and I remember he ran an ultra clean triple black (70 maybe?) cougar convertible. Anyone remember any of his other cars?

    NoClubJoe,

    The Nova pictured was raced in Division II by Ken & Pop Andrews when it was a pretty new car. If I remember correctly they were from Jacksonville, Florida and were very early customers of Paul Forte, possibly before Turbo Action was officially opened for business.

    hey cool, thanks for the info, i would really like to see more pics of the car. I did a yahoo search for "Nova-Cain" drag car, didnt come up with anything about the car or pics? I guess i gotta keep looking, i really dig the look of this Nova. From what i can tell from the pics its a 68 or 69, it has the small marker lights in the bumper and on the sides, 70-72 had larger lights as you can see from the pics of my 71.
     
  20. Righto, Jimmy
    Took the TA words right out of my mouth!

    Good to hear from you. Happy New Year.

    Pic was taken at Edgewater Park (old scales by the concession.Now on return road)
    Big W is for Waibel Competition. Might contact them for more info.

    Thanks Tweed, Yea I have that shot and I have talked to Bob Plumer on several occasions. I seem to remember him telling me that at that time (1969) he worked at Anderson Olds as a line tech and knew Sonny Freeman (Anderson's driver) quite well. He took that photo at Capitol Raceway---must've been a big meet 'cause if you look in the background there are some pretty big names in attendance. And yes, it is a Ram on wheels with "RAM AIR" lettered underneath. I (actually my lettering man) tried in vain to duplicate that rear 1/4 when I had the car re-lettered but I was never happy with the result. Now the rear 1/4 says "RAM AIR" in a knid of speed-letter on each side. Thanks for the interest and Happy New Year to all!!! Until next time..... Dave. P.S. Except for the "new" lettering my car remains mostly original.

    Joe,

    If you're thinking of a tribute car, I have the hard to get 10" vintage Mr. Gasket decals for the fenders.;):D

    -p.s. you made the comment in an earlier post about ridding the Ralley wheels and of traction issues. Mount a pair of the new M&H vintage 7" cheater slicks on a pair of Cragars or steelies. They're only 7" wide, but are super soft and sticky and I bet after a good burnout, your Nova would plant. You'll have to make a stop over and check them out, I have a pair on the Ford.

    That is definately Frank Iaconio's car and I was not sure about the Corvette but your probablly right it is Lou Cuviello's....I also thought the Merc was Chuck Johnson's...


    My ex-wife was a bartender in a place that Ed Merkel frequented.......The Merkels had a car wash right around the corner......


    Jeff was a fun guy and sent me a birthday present once in a bar down in Florida as a little joke......A dancer (topless)......and it was not my birthday! He was havin fun.....We usually visited one of those clubs on any trip to Florida......Any trip to Florida was always a fun week...and warm ...well usually but not always....

    Searching for images of "Nova-Cain" I came across this photo?:confused:

    It's amazing what you can find on Google by accident.

    Looks like Al Hart and the Prospector. Don't know if its ever been posted yet.

    Its got to be a 69 --- a 68 would say "chevy II" on the front edge hood moulding. thats the only way i can tell em from the front. This car probably was running a 255HP/350? If it were a 68, only a 295HP 350 was available!
    Hayyp new Year to all!

    Chuck,
    The '67 Chevy II door locks are located on the door panel in front of the door handle. There are also quite a few more minor differences between the '66 and '67 Chevy IIs!
