Amy you just can't drop a teaser like that without any more information, like who, what,when,where you know all those adverbs you learned in english class.
Is this the Carley from Palo Alto, CA?
If so, I knew his parents, and when they saw my '62 Fuely, they mentioned that their son also had a "fast Corvette". I think he won, hands down!
Car ran C/MP (and apparently D/MP) and it was out of Palo Alto. Dual quad 283 with a Muncie and an Olds rear. Not sure what he did with the Hemi. Are you related to Russ Carley, Amy?
A quick google search found this pic:
I'm intrigued! Would like to learn more about it... beautiful car, wondering where it is now.
Don't you just love the smile on his face ?
Matches the grille
Amy just joined up....give her a day or two for an introduction.
According to her post in Corvette Gassers, her Dad, Dave DeBrecht, was a friend of Russ.
I saw that after I posted the above-I guess I have not followed the Corvette Gasser thread as well as I should have. I too was curious as to it's whereabouts and any other history. I wonder if it morphed into another drag car or met the untimely fate of being turned back to stock. There was a magazine article on the car back in the 60s and I made a note on it although I forget which magazine offhand. I have the magazine but my filing system leaves something to be desired.
I too have missed it Jim. I have "watch thread" clicked on but something is amiss. Anyway it all makes sense now I hope we hear more.
