Sid, that video clip brought back fond memories. Thank you for posting it. Now that Betsy is retired, does Al plan on placing her in a museum? I bet the NHRA Hot Rod museum would love to have her and a perfect retirement home.

Betsy along with Al's 76 Roadster, the old Jimmy junior fuel dragster & his junior midget were originally sold to Ralph Whitworth of The Flying A Garage Museum. When he went bust, everything went to auction & Al's cars were split up. The roadster ended up in Speedy Bill's collection.
