    Thanks Rich. So, presumably, it probably had one of the newer OHV V8s, not just a "big" flattie?
     
  2. I thought I explained that not too long ago. o_O

    I think it had a Chrysler. Of course in those days 33 cid was a Big engine. A 331 bored to 354 was really big and a 400 was a mountain motor

    Now boys...

    I think loud is correct. He has posted both in the past, but the comment was in the Pure Hell post. And if I recall, that header tube was actually gone in that photo..!

    Today's T/F and F/C headers have more tubing material than a playground swing set and no wonder. They contain upwards of 1500 lbs of thrust with the associated stresses involved. In retrospect, its easy to understand how early cars had problems like this.

  12. I don't care, it's a pair of real fuel altereds! Not the rebodied funny cars that pass for altereds today.

    Dean, the funny thing about your comment is that the Ron O'Donnell driven Denison, Arlasky and Knox car in the near lane became one of the early funny cars when Ron Pellegrini purchased it and mounted a shortened Mustang body on the chassis.

    Don't trust Google to show you everything. The last time that you posted this photo was in 2018 in this thread (post # 1440) although you are correct in that you did not mention the header in that post but you did in your response to a comment by Dean Lowe about the header;

    And my response was;
    "loudbang, the missing header photos that you posted were of Rich Guasco's Pure Hell car (when it was still Chevy powered)." so we were both wrong.

    Mickey Thompson had an excellent relationship with Dragmaster and used many of its chassis for his race cars. Thompson "invaded" the inaugural Winternationals with no less than five Pontiac-powered dragsters, including blown and unblown versions with four-cylinder Tempest engines (essentially 389ci V-8s cut in half). MT surprised everyone by winning Middle Eliminator against Tom Buky's B/Altered.

    The orange bantam was fielded by Professor Pete Orner, a fluid dynamics professor at Case Institute of Technology, now part of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. He designed and built his own fuel injection system.

    And the "T" is probably not as well known to students, is the "Plain Vanilla" altered.
    That car later became a AA/FA I believe. Owned and driven by Charlie Smith best I can find.

    Yep! Charlie Smith was the 1963 NHRA "Hot" category world champion and his brother Frank was also a very successful racer. Charlie's son Todd has been one of the better NHRA fuel car crew chiefs for many years and is currently the co crew chief on J R Todd's DHL funny car. I posted most of this information the last time that loudbang put this photo up (page 41, November 2017).

    I'm blessed I tell ya for having a stalker that devotes his life to, and spends all his spare time, checking every photo that I post AND he is even more efficient than google. That must be some extraordinary algorithm you invented or you go through every post I make one by one.......mesmerizing :confused:
