Here is a picture of one of my T/F Dragsters from early 70s. Dick Venables from Houston and I owned the car. I built the chassis at my company at the time, Precision Specialties. Dick and I did the engine work and the driver at this race was Ronnie Martin of Dallas.

This was the final round at a Division 4 points race and the other car is Childs & Albert. Needless to say, we were way out front but the car continued to go up and almost over backward. I brought it home and completely rebuilt the chassis from firewall forward and returned from Houston to La Place, Louisiana, for a race the next weekend. I am currently building an A/Fuel Dragster to compete in NHRA National events (the second coming).
