FUNNY AND OTHER
photos of some of the other 500 cars that made the 50th March
Meet a huge success.
The Beach City
Chevrolet tribute car of the Estrus bunch was a real fan favorite.
Big show FC shoe
and all around nice guy Jack Beckman was out to have some fun
and take a lap in the Time Traveler flopper. After it failed
to qualify, Beckman ran a nice 6.07 at 236 on a test run Sunday.
Terry Capp didn't
have his best weekend in the Ron Hodgson owned, Roland Leong
tuned Pacemaker/Bubble Up car. Normally a heavy hitter, the Canadian
flopper had trouble in qualifying and lost in round one of the
Darcy Jr Fuel
The Code Red
car driven by Lee Paul Jennings was in the hunt until a round
two loss to "Romo". Seems they had problems with the
body mounts after the burnout and when fixed and lowered it half
closed the fuel shut off. No fuel - not much at the hit.
Mendy Fry had
a good first outing in Gary Messenger's "Future Flash"
qualifying #5 but losing in round one to Dennis La Charite.
Bates flying for the U.S. Air Force.
Greg Uffins in
Rich Howell's AA/FA made two exhibition runs in the Dale Pulde
tuned monster but failed to go 1320 feet on either pass.
Rian Konno was
willing but the Hot Wheels/Crazy Horse entry wasn't. The team
experienced problems on all three qualifying attempts.
Dennis La Charite
almost hung in too long in his 2nd round loss. Getting out of
the groove and heading for the wall, injectors wide open, he
somehow managed to not even scrape the headers - but it was CLOSE.
Pruett made her first show at #16 in the Dickies Girl Mustang.
Krabill won NFC 'B' in the Pedaler '78 Arrow.
traveled 3000 miles from Delaware to contest his Mill Road Boys
Vega and just missed qualifying.
Rosenburg in Bruce Dyda's Surfers Paradise NE-1.
based Michael Grekul did an nice job shaking down the new (and
beautify) Plueger & Gyger Mustang and then going to the runner-up
spot in NFC 'B'.
Mike Savage put
the Speed Sport Barracuda in the #6 hole with a 6.127 at 235.66.
put the Pisano & Matsubara '73 Vega into the #3 spot with
a 6.008 at 234.55 but lost in round one.
Jack twin was out doing exhibition runs but with Jack Harris
focused on his car Mike Floyd from Battleground Washington was
in the seat. He's a school teacher and the son of flathead wizard
Earl Floyd. Earl and Jack Coonrod restored the old NorthWind
car last year. Earl drove the old North Wind car for the Slo-Pokes
before Ed the "Ace". Mike ran back to back passes of
177.69 and 177.89 on Friday and Saturday.
They were the fastest speeds ever turned in by a flathead powered
car, not bad for some 60 year old motors...
It All" Gibbs enjoying some quite time before the circus
No better way
to close this page than with Mike Boyd in the Winged Express.
Mike made 3 exhibition runs over the weekend and none were weak
sucks! A truly great show.
