Before Gary Densham was a hired gun for the current
John Force juggernaut, he campaigned his own Funny Cars named
"Teacher's Pet." Gary was an auto-shop teacher in Bellflower,
California, and as a "perk" for his better students, he'd take
them to the races to work on his car.
This is Gary's Dodge Challenger from the 1975 Winternationals.
