Will do. This is one reason (besides wanting to share my vast collection of pictures I've collected from the internet these past 20 years--where did the time go?!), I love hearing the stories behind them and if someone spots his car, or his relative's car, or is the owner of the car in question now and looking for photos from "back in the day", that makes it that much more satisfying for me.

Can you say 426 Hemi convertible? I believe this is the Centolanza Bros car. I'm not sure if it's a genuine Hemi 'Cuda convertible, but it sure looked, sounded and ran like one. laugh

Been sorting out old family 8mm color film. I got a number of shots among other races of a match race between Garlits and Swingle in November 1963 with SR IV in red, at Masters Field in Miami. Ironically, that was a time before ANY spectator fencing, and at end run Don made his turn and stopped 10'? in front of us on return side of the strip. Never seen any comparable footage online. Is this stuff donate-able? Doesn't seem right to just leave it on my shelf/hardrive.

These are great. I grew up during this time but was not privileged to be around these great old racers. It’s fun to study each one and see what’s in the background and everything. Even love the tow vehicles.
Thanks for your time and effort.

I was around back then but was a wee lad so I didn't find out about all that cool stuff until later. frown

I enjoy posting as long as I have like-minded people enjoying the fruits of my labor. The real thanks goes to the photographers "back in the day" who originally took the photos and those who scanned and uploaded the photos to the Internet.

"It's a (six cylinder) Hemi"! Lol. Looks like they used an early Hemi cylinder head (two of them minus a couple cylinders) based on the look of the valve cover.

Yes thanks for the thread, as a child in the early 70's I was at the local track with my Dad racing his 63 Max Wedge Plymouth, this was Australia but I was always reading Drag News (papers) so lots of these cars bring back memories, I remember telling school mates that my middle name was Garlits hahahaha.

I always hope to see a pic of my '67 Belvedere that was raced in SS/B and SS/DA in these old race pic threads. So far no luck.

The WO23 'Flower Power' in post #2448739 belonged to Moparts member Stewart Pomeroy who passed away a few years ago.
After the WO23, he had one of the S&M BO29's, then the Mopar Missle, then the S&M Hemi Colt.

It was raced in SS/B as 'Brief Encounter', then in SS/DA as 'Cajun Stripper'.


Stewart posted a pic of it on Moparts one time. I think he said he bought it through a Dodge dealer in Naples FL.

very cool, I recognize a lot of these cars...don't know if I've ever mentioned it on here, but I worked full - time for the NHRA for 15 years. That was a helluva ride.
I have/had hundreds of vintage drag racing pics, but not on this computer. Here are a few season program covers and ads from the Home of the Mopar Nationals:

Riverside Auto Parts was a big and actually pretty orderly wrecking yard on the east side of Newark Ohio. Eventually became an LKQ location. This is from an NTR Season schedule program. That's the original tower at NTR. BTW: The Raceway opened July 4th, 1964

Now these type of "before" and "after" photos I like.







Led Zeppelin II Belvedere station wagon--I saw this car run at the 1974 Summernationals, the best national event I ever attended. This car was basically a clone of Gary's Ostrich's similar 426 Hemi-powered wagon. As far as I know, no B-body station wagons were ever built with the 426 Hemi engine. How NHRA allowed this car to run in Super Stock back then I'll never know. Odds are Chrysler supplied NHRA with bogus production figures to make the car legal in that eliminator.

Would have been swapped in, and ran without an air cleaner. Quite a few cars were done like that. Landy's 68 Charger was a 440 car with a HEMI transplant.

And THIS is just one reason why this thread RULES!

When I drew this in 1970 at seven years of age I may have suffered from a little "brand confusion", but I knew the number "440" was related to horsepower, I knew the front tires had tread and the rear ones were slicks, and I knew about a car that carried the front wheels named "COLOR ME GONE"!

I saw the Posion Ivy car at Carlisle during the R0/W0 reunion. One of my favorite cars there and I’m a dodge guy! Lol very lucky to have a car like that! Wish you the best of luck with it and I hope you are able to put it back to the track!

Red/Red, 4spd, radio delete, sold new at dealer in OK.

When he bought it, it was parked next to Judy L's '67 Belvedere I (Pappy Fry car).

Take it to the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion in June at Beech Bend Raceway, Bowling Green KY. The track owner was the the original owner of mine. He ran it locally till '69 when he blew the clutch out of it, then he sold it to a racer in central TX.

Thank you, Matt


You're welcome, Matt. I'm flattered. The real thanks goes to the photographers who took the pictures "back in the day" and for those who scanned and uploaded these photos to the Internet.

1968 HEMI Super Bee's are far and few between as you well know. I was able to find these photos of three 1968 Dodge Coronets--all R/T's. Well, at least one is Hemi-powered (the gold car). Don't know if it's a real Hemi car or not but it was running in SS/DA class that day and that's Hemi territory. I can't make out the class designation on his racing partner's similar R/T so I won't speculate as to what was in the engine compartment.

I wasn't sure what the forum rules were so I held back. I've got many great Brand X photos I omitted from the series I already posted, e.g., the 1973 Springnationals at National Trail Raceway. I'll post them according to file name if they are part of a series or mix 'em up so it doesn't look as 'bad.'

I'll begin with the current batch I'm posting from the 1972 Gatornationals.

Thanks.

It's got all the markings of being a real one. Remember this was 1972. I doubt anyone would go to the trouble of duplicating one down to the HEMI decal on the front fender.

almost identical to a vette, that used to race at a local track here
(Ubly Dragway) in Michigan, back in the day. It was owned by the son of the original track owner/operator. GREAT thread, thanks for the pictures! up

Kwik, these old photos are incredible - sight for sore eyes & a much needed sentimental journey! THANK YOU!

Anybody's help on this one - one of my former reps & friends, a guy named Ken Coan from the Dallas area, used to campaign a 1970 Hemi Challenger he bought new - not sure what class he ran but the car was probably in the SS class. Well, he passed away a couple of years ago & he showed me a photo of his car in full race trim several years ago when we worked together. ANYBODY remember him or his car? OMG I would love to see a photo or two of Ken & his Challenger.

#2, in the first or second page, there's a photo of Jim Harlow's "Harlow Tire" Daytona 440. Harlow Tire is in Wayne, MI. & Jim still had the car parked inside his building in the early 80's. I stopped in one day when I was working the area & he took me back to see the car. It was painted black then, the original color was orange with black wing & interior. Anyway, he wanted to sell it for $10,000 - the car had 18,000 miles on the clock. A little rusty in the rear quarters, it was prime for a full resto by someone. $10k for me back then may as well been a million. Anybody know the whereabouts of Jim's old Daytona? He always ran a display ad in the yellow pages with a photo of the car.

Great stuff.............

if it was New England dragway that would be New Hampshire which would make sense because i heard that the car was from there. anyone have any info on the car?

By "New England" I meant that part of the country. Maine is part of New England last time I checked. The track in question is Oxford Plains Dragway.

You're welcome. You're right, it does take time to rummage through my files to find the photos I want then upload them to an image server then post here.

As far as eBay goes, you have to be pretty desperate for money and pathetic as a person to resort to a such low-down method to generate an income.

Me too- I found hand written slips from National under the carpet of my dart. I'd pay a bounty to see a period pic of it. 68 dart- Early 70's, black, slots on front, centerlines in back, 426 max wedge. Also ran at Islip's 1/8 mile back in the day.

Amazing photos- mopar and brand x.

Fantastic pictures, thanks for posting. Do you have any photos of a black 1970 Hemi Roadrunner raced from new by a John Crisp based in Springfield Illinois. I have a poor copy of a photo of the car taken at Indianapolis around 71 or 72 where it was runner up in SS/D. It is stickered up with John Crisp on the doors and Hemi on the front fenders. The car is now restored and living in England. I would love to have some pictures of it back in the day. I believe the second owner Dennis Bowen bought the car in 75 and also raced it. It is a factory black car, white interior, original 4 speed. Thank you.

I will say this thread proves one thing - the 'right' wheels and tires make or break the look of a car.

Sure wish the original Keystone front runners were still available!

Fentons or Cragars work OK though.

I would guess it was raced mainly around the Illinois area. I would love to find out more about it’s racing days. We also have a 69 Superbee A12 in the collection here in the UK.
That car was raced by John Gerreck jr back in the day. You have posted a picture of the car with a trans by Bruce decal on the front fender. Thanks for your efforts.

I believe that the car your talking about was also owned by Roy Stout in the early 80's. Roy owned my 68 hemi bee then and a previous owner told me about the black hemi RR that was there when he bought my bee. The same car is now in England if I am not mistaken and was once part of the Joe S. collection.

Hi Matt
The car did belong to Roy Stout and was part of the Joe Stentella collection. The car has been in the UK for over 15 years, it was restored by Dennis Kohr and is still in exceptional condition. Would love to hear some early history on the car particularly from its racing days. You can PM me if you prefer.
Thanks, Mozz

Mozz I just talked to a friend who knew John when this car was new. He said his grandmother bought it for him and they immediately took out the engine and sent it to ramchargers to be built. Said it had a rat buster manifold on it crager ss and skinny tires. Just like your picture. Never any street miles from new. He’ll doesn’t think he has any photos but if he finds any we’ll get them to ya.

The pictures Qwik 426 posted are after John owned it.

That car seems to have had some kind of small sponsorship from Speed world who were located in Elmhurst, Queens here in the city.
Perhaps looking on line or face book for Speed world staff or history of their cars will produce some photos.
Guy over the engine changing plugs looks familiar.

A very credible source of mine who was at all the tracks in NY back then told me the guy in the picture looks familiar, but also unfamiliar. Car was one of many. Speed world sponsor is a good starting point to find history.

Thanks everyone for your interest. The pictures Pete posted are not of the same car as far as I can tell. Our car had a white interior and no hood pins. It seemed to live it’s life in Illinois. I am loving this thread.

I’m with you Pete I think we are confusing two different cars. The black with white interior car was an Illinois car. The other I believe you mention belonged to a guy named Mike? In NY.
