I am attaching a scanned copy of the cover of Drag News,
Volume 11, Number 8, dated July 3, 1965. The Chevy in the far lane was mine
and also was the original Hayden Profitt/Bill Thomas Cone Chevrolet car.
The second is my '65 Falcon, built by Hubert Platt. The picture was in AHRA's
March/April issue of Tach Magazine. If anyone has or knows of either of
these for sale, I would like to buy them. I am interested in any other
photos, posters, etc. that have these cars on them. Thanks, Tommy

Need pics of a Model "A" Fuel

I am trying to find photos, magazine
articles, or any information on the BRIGGS CHEVROLET sponsored 1970 SS/EA
Chevelle SS 454 Convertible. This famous Super Stocker was tuned and
prepared by TRUPPI-KLING COMPETITION and driven by RAY ALLEN to a Super
Stock championship in 1970. It also held the record in SS/EA for some time.
This car was based in New Jersey and would have raced at RACEWAY PARK in
ENGLISHTOWN as well as most national events throughout the US. I would love
to hear from anyone who has seen or heard of this great Chevelle Super
Stocker. I think the Chevelle was either dark green or dark blue with white
stripes and convertible top. Thanks, Kevin Biermann, 113 Iris Dr., Neptune,
NJ 07753. Phone 732-922-4458
Hey, I need some help finding and old and
dear friend. In my younger days, I used to pit crew for Doug Rose and his
Green Mamba Jet Dragster while he was in Florida (my old home). I took a
wrong turn on the road of life and lost touch with Doug. The good news is I
am fine and about to get a masters degree. I sure would like to catch up
with my old friend -- he was a true friend. If anyone can help, please
contact me at (334) 252-1186 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many thanks for your help.
I'm looking for this car, the Dream Weaver AMX Funny
Car -- formerly the Glass Rat. I
owned it in the late '70s through mid '80s. Chris Stinson
