John, I was bored this evening so I got out my old Don Montgomerys Supercharged Gas Coupes book. I saw where Arley Langlo ran A/GS in 1961. Did he have a Willys or something else? I got a bunch of autographs in that book from the old gas racers like Cookie Cook and KS Pitman.

  Hi Gary...Arley had a 33 or 34 Ford coupe  around that time with a blown Hemi Chrysler. Remember a time of 124 mph at the drags.

  JL222 cheers

Every few pages I like to put up videos of our runs so if people want to find them they can locate them a little easier.  These are some of our better videos.

     These are in 2008





                 2009



                 2010





 More from the past

            JL222

  Rob...here's the videos. The 1st one is El Mirage, car hooks up and goes 152 mph in 10.2 sec. Then track turns bad which you can see from other video.

  Another year already shocked

I have gotten plenty sideways but I have never spun.  Maybe it's time to earn a spin pin. grin

This is not a spin.  It was an attempt to run in reverse as we'd read that roadsters are more aero going backwards.  Found out it was hard to steer and stay between the cones that way.

And, Stan -- let's see.  That snout on the "hood" of the car is the exhaust, right?  Blowing backwards for a bit more forward thrust.  And then, down low just to the "left" of the "rear" wheels is the air intake.  You're trying to get some ram air effect -- and use the cooler air that's down close to the ground, too.

Do I win?  Did I get 'em all correct?

Just remember, Stan Back has me do some things with Photoshop for him.

I don't remember if I did this image.

Rule Book shows a 304 record in 2004 -- maybe part of the two-way?
