"Used Car Lot" - Yea,
right! This was taken at Airline Auto Sales in 1963 when the
team hooked up with Jack Flatley who owned Orange County Metal
Processing (OCMP). No clue what the Frantic 4, the OCMP and Airline
Auto dragsters were doing on the lot but you can bet they weren't
the daily specials.

Auto car in 1964 but if its not, whoever it is they have a serious
fuel deliver issue.
Bob Neal in Arnold Birkey's Jr.
Fuel car at Sacramento in 1968. This was their stepping stone

Jim Dunn - "Green
Mountain Boys" - AA/FD - Lions, 1967. One of three so-called
"Woody Trick Cars" due to the unique front suspension.
This Woody "trick"
front end that I found at one of our local swap meets some 12
years ago for $165, was the remains from the Green Mountain boys
car of Jim Dunn. This unit was run for sometime before it was
cut off and replaced with the conventional front end. It remained
in Woody's shop for many years before someone talked him out
of it. Lucky for me when this came up for sale at the various
Southern Calif. swap meets no one wanted it, the owner moved
to Washington State and I was at the right place at the right
time and scored. It hangs here just above me as I type on the
computer, now this is what I call a "computer room",
no room dividers here. BTW the first trick front end that most
of you are all aware of was the same one that was on the Texan
car of the Anderson Brothers that Kenny Bernstein drove. This
car later crashed so this unit that I have could be the only
existing one left.

No ID at Edmonton International
Raceway circa 1969. The walkway off the second floor was one
of the bitchinest places ever to watch a race.

Horse" flathead digger at Lions that appears to be bleeding
Wish I had more info on this
shot taken at the Greek's shop in Chicago. Looks like his 1966
Fuller car before paint. Car's being loaded onto a very crude
trailer ... with much improvisation I may add. That's my guess,
Bill Coburn's "Coburn Glaze"

This was one of many Scotty Finn's
designes tried in the early 60's. This is at Fontana circa 1964
and by accounts, it was short lived.
