I sure like the color of Jim's Bonner tribute Falcon.I need to figure out how to photoshop his Falcon and my Comet to look like we are racing! ROY.
Dads 64 falcon A/fx Street tribute car.First time down the track taking it easy.
Took this pictute of the strip teaser in Arizona a couple years back.
Phil was the man
Ken;great photos! It is crazy how the drivers back then were moving about,some with no helmet or safety clothing,or rollbars.In one of your shots Phil's head is almost hitting the windshield!Now,if Eddie would stick some HP in his 65,it might leave like this last shot!!! ROY.
Ha ha Roy! Eddie keeps thinking I'll kick the bucket, or my wife will off me, and he can have my cammer to put in his Falcon!
I hope he mans up, and builds a big FE or a cammer for his wagon project.
Ken and I figure if he stops chasing the Pin up girls, he could afford a BIG engine!
Well Eric for one Eddie dosent want to mess up his Elvis hair to go that fast.And I'm not sure with the extra LB s he put on, the poor falcon may not lift at all.But then so far all hes been able to claim is a half of an inch.Funny I looked at the same photo and I didnt see it.
Roy I know he wants to put more horse in his,It kills him watching all the guys out there in Bakersville.I keep telling him to crank that engine up.
Your right Eric he needs to lay off those pin up girls and get focused.
Happy new year Fast Eddie
Heres the car Eddie is suppose to be getting serious about.
You know my car never has quite run right after I let eddie help me with my car.
Eric and Ken;Eddie is a great guy and an easy target for picking on!!! That photo with the full face mask and resperator is all time!!! I'm building a 65 2dr wagon that FoMoCo never built,was supposed to be done in 08,OH WELL!! Maybe if I would quit breaking the race car it would get done! If he quit the pin up girls what would he put on his web site? ROY.
Heres some more pics of Phil Bonners 65 falcon with some new mods.
Roy It is amazing how they raced back then.Suprising more people didnt get hurt.Ecspecially the way they were pushing the envelope back then.Check out this nascar photo.Window down, no window net, short sleave shirt, no glasses, bumper to bumper at about 135 mph.cool stuff.
Ken;I lost interest in NASCAR when they quit racing REAL cars!!That picture is GREAT,real chrome,real grills,BAD ASSED!!!!!Watching NASCAR is like watching Funny Cars or Top FOOL,lets see,do I want the red one or the blue one to win,innovation is long gone!!!!! JMO,ROY.
I'm the same way.Give me a nostalgic event or vintage racing over anything they have today.It all looks the same.There was a pic in a 70's hot rod mag showing at least 30 different funny cars lined up to compete,Compaired to today were its the same ,what, 8 cars every week.
Now this was one hell of a falcon race!!!
