    Yep it happened, i was there, most of the runs were 330 ft. and they didn't put down rosin in those days. We used to paint the slicks with rosin, I had atlas bucron tires which only had 2 groove around the tire to make them legal for the street, but it was still slick as hell. I didn't make my first run in my Supercarged, until the summer of 1964, but i did have a 55 chevy with a 301 that was respectable, with 3 on th tree.

    No YB i don't have any pics. in those days almost no one had camera'a in fact i only had about 4 or 5 pics. of my blown 56 t'bird and a couple 8 MM movies of it running, My first cousin has a few 8 MM movies of the t'bird but i've been unsuccessful to get him or his wife to go dig them out of their attic. 2 divorces and 45 to 50 yrs a lot of things get lost in moving around the US. I have good memories but i just can't find a lot of those on record. In those days i almost always went to the track by myself, because i babies at home plus my EX had absoblutely no intrest in my racing, same thing with my second wife she never saw me race not even 1 time, maybe that's one of the reasons they are EX's.
