    mean, nasty and well er... perfect looking really. Shame only 4 pics seem to exist of it. It would be cool to know where it is now but i'd settle for just seeing some more pictures of it

    If this thing don't get your hot rod blood boiling, then you may as well just quit.

    The perfect gasser.

    Great post brother.

    Oh, and Mr. Horsepower is along for the ride, just perfect.

    "The sub 9-second timeslips help, but I think the majority of this can be credited to the fact that the car looks just as mean sitting idle in the pits as it does making a tire smoking pass." -J.Ukrop.

    Bet it sounded mean sitting/shaking idling in the pits (or staging) too!

    Great photo Justplain, thanks for sharing!

    As a life long 34 finatic, the Hyder, 15 oz. and Mooneyham coupes were always my favorite drag coupes.

    I always wondered if Joe Lance' (Wardlow top shop-Long Beach, Ca.) coupe was the old Hyder car, but I don't recall if it was an already hammered old drag car when he built it into a full fendered Hot Rod in the early 70's?

    I could only scrounge one photo, but I seem to recall Street Rodder or Rod Action(?) featured the car back in the 70's. Anyone?

    Ya, Rod Action some time probably in '79 or '80 or so. It'll take some digging, but I have it here.

    I don't know how I missed this thread when it was started but I had a call back in the mid '80s that the Hyders had moved to Asheville N.C. and brought the car with them and it was for sale. I was heavily into Muscle Cars and was not interested in buying it but had an interest in the car from a historical standpoint. The 554 had been restored and was making runs during this time but I didn't remember the Hyder car from the Fuel Coupe era and therefore am 99% sure this was not a dream since I did not know about the car's history.

    I didn't go look at the car but remember some time later hearing someone had purchased the Fuel Hemi out of the car. Ironically, I bought the 134 Fuel Coupe from Ted Brine about 4 years later. That's the feeble memories I have.

    I hope someone from the Ashville North Carolina area can add something to this important "where is it now" question.

    Here's a photo that was supposed to have been in the original article but slipped through the cracks. In my opinion, it's the best color shot of it in existence. Photographer unknown.

    yep that is such a cool shot. Can anyone please tell me what is written beneath the 'Stan's Headers signwriting on the rear quarter in some of the pics? I guess it's the town so does anyone remember where Stan's Headers operated from perhaps? Thanks
