    A decade later I reply..I still own the car. I first restored it as it would have been at the track, but never got it lettered, Now I have put the stock suspension, exhaust, and wheels on the car so other than the lack of a radio, it's mostly as it would have been in the showroom than the track. I started it and moved it around the storage facility just a couple weeks ago for the first time in maaaaany years. Fully restored and ready to go. I wish somebody would talk me out of owning it....

    Due to the so called grille in the first picture of the Terrible Tangerine that picture must have been in 1967 or before. In 1968 and later NHRA required stock grilles in Stock Eliminator.

    With those rally wheels it definitely wasn't early "66".

    Look a little closer…In the first picture, it doesn’t have the rally’s. In the second picture, it has a stock grill, and says 1969 on the pic.

    Yes, I should have read it closer, I was basically saying that the rally wheel wasn't available until the 67 model year which generally introduced late in 66.

  11. True enough. The Junior Stock era officially ended 50 years ago this month at Ontario Motor Speedway.
    Some of the pics with Super Tricks and Centerlines were purged from here years ago, being a 70's item, yet we allow modern wheels in some of the other threads. Who knows why??

    Mark I don't disagree with you on the subject of wheels, I take all my pictures from a 3/4 angle to just see the bead of the offending wheel, if I only shot pics of pre 65 wheels there would be very few shots of cars today. If it is a traditional hot rod with the right wheels it gets the full picture. I want to take and contribute pictures I just try to use some common sense.

  13. Cragar S/S's and slotted Fenton types were mid 60's and should be good to go right till the end in 1971.

    Just for sh*ts and giggles, who can tell what the Grump charged for, say a 220/283 around 1970.

    I'm looking for a 51 or 52 Oldsmobile that was blue in the 70s named "Gone In 60 Seconds" from Ohio. Was sold to a guy around Rockingham NC, sometime around 1980 and was painted red and named "NO Respect". Supposed to be an AHRA record holder

    Dang! Drag Racing legend on here. Love this thread! There's a used car lot in Lafayette Indiana with Asay on the sign. Any relatives up north?

    Whenever I checked into a motel in my travels I always pulled out the phonebook and looked for other Asay's in the local area. I never found more than a few. But, the phonebook in Salt Lake City had PAGES of Asay's! But to answer your question directly, there aren't any relatives "up north".

    I think that we should direct that question to Mark Yac and Gary Glover. My Junior Stock '57 Corvette was a 4-speed car so I wasn't entirely dialed in for cast-iron glides. I do remember them to be fairly simple arrangements with little or no attention being paid to frills such as shift detents. After we went to Super Stock and a few people spun their cars out by shifting through neutral into reverse, the mandatory detent rule was added to the mix.

  26. I know it's hard to believe but the c.i. Glide was a bit before my time. I had 4 speed Pontiacs then.
    The 61 vette that Joe Sr. fooled around with , and the 59 FI Impala had a Vitar aluminum glide in it. I think I made that shifter but details are fuzzy. The 68 Chevy II that we brought out west had an A1 trans and converter. The shifter had a curved handle like a Hurst but was pretty simple. It had a slot for low and drive, together, and then you had to push it to the left a bit and up for neutral , etc. I'm going to say it was a Fenton....maybe ;-)

    Ken, I just rebuilt this cherry 56 WCFB on a 210 sedan with a powerglide.

    My friend Bobby Dee Myers who had the Illinois Shaker back in the early 70s told me his Grump built Stocker 283 cost over 3k back then.
