The late Steve Pluger will be
best remembered by all the incredible funny cars he built, owned
and raced over the decades of his career. Few, very few are aware
that he and his brother built and raced this top fuel car in
1967. These are the only photos I've ever seen of it. By all
accounts it was first class from front to back. I wish I would
have known about this car while Steve was still with us so I
could have got the scoop from the horses mouth WDIFL, its about
Jack Ewell at the helm of the
Ewell-Bell-Stecker AA/FD in 1967. This was the last car Ewell
drove before turning over the seat to the likes of a young Carl
John Greer heating the
tires in this BBC car at Sacramento in 1968.
McEwen in the Johnson
& McEwen "Candy Stripe" car at Indy in 1968.
Kenny Safford hazing
the tires in the Gotelli Speed Shop car at Fresno in 1968.
Wayne King at the hit in Tony
Waters car at Lions in 1967 - nice wrinkle on the M&H tires.
