Stopping the dream, with the help of a 16 1/2' ribbon chute.

That's me on the left with a good friend Don Fox.  If you look to the left of me and back

 you will see one of Arnie Beswick's cars.   This was at Oswego Dragway.

A good start at Oswego Dragway.

Another good run during the 1964 season.   At this point I now hold the Drag News 1320
AAGFHD (that's double A gas flathead dragster) E.T. record at 10.27 seconds and the MPH
record at 150.00.  These were set at Oswego Dragway and backed up at Union Grove
Dragway, Union Grove, WI

Realizing that the car had more potential, I made the decision to switch from gas to Alky.
This is one of the first runs on alky.

At this point the chassis was painted black and mag wheels and wider slicks were added.
