    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?

    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.
