Funny Cars 1965-1979

John Kimble is better known for his Top Fuel efforts but he did venture into Funny Car in 1978 with Bruce Iversen, both natives of Compton, California. Kimble was a contractor and Iversen built fiberglass bodies. The two joined forces with this sleek gold and black Iversen Monza. The team had Jake Johnston driving at Bakersfield in 1978. Johnston, fresh from the Pisano & Matsubara Monza, got a 6.59 out of the car. The team soon split up. Kimble went back to his fueler and Iversen went back to alcohol funny cars.



Jim Dunn, his first outing in his Dunn & Reath rear engine Woody car at OCIR.



This shot is on the site but this is bigger and sharper. Classic,



One of drag racing characters was Joe Jacono. This was the car before he unleashed his series of "Rollin' Stoned" flopper.



Have no info on "Boss's Cuda" but my guess is this particular version was, as they say, toast.
