Notes: Blown fuel, late hemi, direct drive dragster-style funny. 200" chassis with 18' long Dart roadster body draped over it. Driver Emery Cook sat in the trunk, slingshot-style. Constructed by Garlits after the rear-engine Dart Charger he purchased from Dick Branstner (later renamed, repainted the Polka Dart, later yet renamed and repainted one final time as Garlits Dart) was destroyed in crash at Detroit. This "funnier-than-most" car became the first ultra-stock to crack the 200-mph barrier with an 8.03-200.44 blast at St. Petersburg, Fla. in mid-October '66. -- RT

Notes: Rear-engine blown fuel. This replaced the Cuda he crashed earlier in the year. Car was sold to Fred Goeske in 1966. Photo is actually early 1966, but reflects the late 1965 2nd car. Don Montgomery's "Dragster and Funny Car Memories" book quotes unattributed times of 8.88-178.92. Per Chris Martin, Tom ran 8.82-171 at Lions on the night that Dyer ran the great 8.63.

Notes: Blown fuel, titanium frame, in-out box (direct drive). Gary Southern was the driver, although this report says car co-owner Roger Hardcastle was the driver. Don't know for certain. This is a second car, as the first Stinger flipped.

Notes: The Akins and Hardcastle Stinger II, driven by Gary Southern, was a Chrysler powered, direct drive, tube framed Kellison Astra kit car. Neither fish nor fowl, it ran in the funny car classes, the sports car classes, and the fuel altered classes. This car was one of the reasons that NHRA, when they instituted the Funny Car classes, specified "Production Bodies only." Hardcastle held the CC/FD record.

Notes: Blown fuel, as seen here. Tube AWB chassis. Landy, who spent some time behind the wheel of Shirley Shahan's "Drag On Lady" Plymouth in 1966, started 1966 in his 1965 Dodge, sold it and built this Dart. Started with normal wheelbase, then AWB'd it. Late in 1966, he aded this blower. Sold car in 1967 to Gene Kidder, who crashed the car in 1968.

Notes: Comet roadster with Cammer, C-6 combo. Jack Chrisman got one of four original Logghe built Comets in 1966. Jack took his proven blown 427 SOHC out of the Chrisman Comet to run in the new flip top car, unlike Nicholson and Schartman, who ran injected Cammers. In 1966, it seemed that the four lightweight Comets dominated the funny car competition like no other cars. Car burned to the ground at New York National mid-1966. Bought old Comet back from Dee Keaton to finish season. Chrisman ran a quickest-ever 8.71 and 184 mph at Riverside during the year. Need to confirm which combo ran that number. | On July 2, Jack was at Detroit in his Comet roadster to face Gary Dyer in the "Mr. Norm" car in a best two out of three match race. Jack attempted to warm up before the match but had some problems with his supercharger. He got it straightened out in time for the first race as his 8.59-177.51 beat Dyer who blew his transmission. Dyer was unable to repair his car so Chrisman soloed to win the match, but what a solo it was. He set a new track record of 8.50-178.57 to win the match.

Notes: Richard 'Dick' Branstner did not drive but was contracted by Dodge to do several projects in the 1964-66 era. This was one, created as a mid-engine Experimental to move weight rearward in the Dodge Dart compact body. The motor and tranmission was located just forward of the rear axle. This followed Branstner's Little Red Wagon, presented to Super Stock standout Bill "Maverick' Golden. Associate Jay Howell drove this car, first called the 'Dart Charger' and later repainted as the 'Polka-Dart.' The car was destroyed on July 11, 1966 after being turned over to sponsored Dodge racer Don Garlits earlier that year for further development. driver Emery Cook was uninjured in that accident, a testimony to Branstner's careful construction. Chris Martin cited a best speed of 171 mph.

Basically a kit car was planned, but it never got off the ground, beyond the Piranha prototype. In essence, the car was a Catch 22 -- too radical to be deemed a funnycar, and too slow as a top fuel dragster. The car was ill handling. Astute match racers would rely on their water cooled entries to burn the car down, resulting in its loss. However, when all went well, no flopper, even the Nicholson Comet could touch it. Per Chris Martin, Walt Stevens went a confirmed 8.71, 187 at Irwindale. Also 182.64 per Drag News. Was the 8.295 Walt or Connie Swingle (who did run an 8.29 in October 1966).

Notes: Alley literally tore the roof off his three-week-old Charger at Irwindale on Aug. 25. According to the 9/1/67 National Dragster, this occurred when his throttle stuck during a qualifying pass, resulting in a wide-open run that ended a full 1/8th mile past the finish line. He turned Low ET of 8.19 of the event in the process and returned to participate in eliminations, topless. -- RT | Ran 8.62, 8.77 at OCIR Mfg. Meet, 11-25-67 8.19 Irwindale. -- DC | Ray was at Fontana on Jan 7 for an eight car show. It was a hard show to get into as 42 cars attempted to qualify for the eight positions. Ray beat the "Whinemaker" in the first round with an 8.11-180.72. In the semifinal, he ran an easy 9.08-146.57 when Marv Eldrige fouled. In the final, he was up against "Dyno" Don Nicholson. Ray ran an 8.52-178.21 for the runner-up money as Don's 8.08-172 took the win.

Notes: World champion in 1976. Also 6.02 at Winters. Both 6.02 and 5.97 were national records (the 5.98 at Ontario 75 was not backed up). Went 235.60 at Sanair 76. Where was the 247 run? 6.24 Gainesville Dragway Track record. Won 7 of 8 NHRA National events in '76, only loss was to Burgin at Indy. Great article on HotRod.com with Snake describing his performance advantage over the rest of the FC field in '75 and '76.

Notes: Consistently fast machine with a stock stroke motor. Won 1977 IHRA Dixie Nationals and World Nationals. Set 245.23 NHRA Record at Martin MI on 8/77. Stood through 1979 at least. Ran 6.24 at Pomona, 6.29 at Columbus, 6.36 at Englishtown, and at 6.16 Indy. If I had to choose which season in which Pulde was most successful, it would be a toss up between '77 and '85. For sentimental reasons it would go to this "War Eagle" car. Pulde started the '77 season at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals where he lasted until round two before losing to Gary Burgin. He went to the Bakersfield March Meet where he finished runner-up to Eddie Pauling in Johnny Loper's Monza. Another runner-up finish came at Rockingham on May 1 for the IHRA Pro-Am Championships. Dale had set Low ET and Top Speed at 6.14-234.37 before losing to Ken Safford in the "Mr. Norm" car in the final. He won the NHRA Division Three points race at Indianapolis as well as the IHRA Dixie Nationals, beating Tom McEwen in the final. Another win came his way at Edgewater for the NHRA Division Three race held there. He beat Chuck Finders in the final with a 6.22-236.22 (Top Speed).

Notes: Ran 6.03 at Pomona, 6.32 at Gainesville, 6.15 at Columbus, 6.09 at Englishtown, 6.06 at Indy, 6.33 at Seattle. | Prudhomme got his new Arrow out of the Jamie Sarte's shop just five days before the NHRA Winternationals. He did pretty well with it at Pomona. Don qualified first with a 6.14-240.64. He beat Jim Liberman in the first round with a 6.07-225.00. A second round 6.14 at just 203.61 beat John Collins in Tom McEwen's second car. He got a single in the semifinals when Gary Burgin's car caught fire; Don ran 6.29-216.34. In the final, he ran Raymond Beadle in the "Blue Max." Prudhomme wrapped up the weekend by winning the race with a low ET and top speed run of 6.03-247.25. The speed was a track record. In March he was at Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet. Again he qualified first, this time with a 6.19-231.36. A first round 6.38 beat Leon Cain, but in round two he smoked the tires and lost to Eddie Pauling's 6.09 in Johnny Loper's Monza. The following week (March 13), Prudhomme qualified #4 at the NHRA Gatornationals with a 6.32. He got past the first round easily and then ran 6.34-228 to beat a tire smoking Bob Pickett in Mickey Thompson's Starfire in round two. In the semifinals, Don faced Roger Lindamood's "Color Me Gone" Monza. Don had him covered performance wise, as Lindamood had qualified #10 and had run 6.51 the round before, but for some reason Don fouled, giving Roger a free ride into the final. On March 27, the "Snake" beat the "Mongoose" Tom McEwen in the final at Fremont for the NHRA Division Seven race. Irwindale held a big FC show on April 9, and Don was there. He lost before the final, and again to Pauling who was debuting a new Arrow for Johnny Loper. The story here was the times: Pauling won with a 5.97 over Don's 6.31. He made it into the final at Union Grove for the Olympics of Drag Racing event but lost to Gary Burgin. In mid-June, the "Snake" was at Columbus for the NHRA Springnationals. He qualified #3 with a 6.15. He beat Beadle, Gordie Bonin, and Ron Colson in the "Hawaiian" to get into the final where he faced Pickett. Bob outran Prudhomme's 6.26-236.84 with a 6.22-231 and Don had to settle for the runner-up spot. He got it all together at Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals. He set low ET and top speed in qualifying first with 6.09-238.09 times. He took out Tom Prock in the first round and a 6.26-227 stopped Ed McCulloch in round two. In the semifinals, a 6.31-220 advanced over a shutting off Tom Hoover and in the finals, he was to run Billy Meyer. Meyer broke and Prudhomme got the victory with a 6.42-186.33 pass. Shortly after that (July 23), he stopped off at Maple Grove for the fourth NHRA Division One race. He set low ET and top speed at 6.17-231.95 and won the race, beating Norm Wilcox driving Jim Green's "Green Elephant" Vega in the final with a 6.22-222.77. He made a stop at Atco for their Fuel FC Championships. It was a race that had all cars make two runs with the two lowest ET cars meeting in the final. Don's first race saw him turn a 6.26-228 (top speed) to beat Al Hanna's 6.72 in the "Eastern Raider," while in his second race, he beat R.C. Sherman in the "Black Magic" Vega with a low ET of the meet 6.22. The other car that made the final was Bruce Larson whose 6.51 was the second best time. Based on times you know the "Snake" was the favorite, but Larson got the jump and won, holding off Prudhomme for the title. Another runner-up effort came at the NHRA Grandnationals on August 7. It featured an eight car field and Don set low ET and top speed in qualifying first with a 6.17-236.22. The 6.17 tied his own track record. A 6.21-234 in the first round beat Bonin's 6.29-227, and in the semifinals, he advanced with a 6.17 solo pass when Burgin had a fuel pump break. In the final, he ran Hoover and his "Showtime" Monza. Tom won his first NHRA National event with a 6.24-226 over Prudhomme's troubled 6.76-172.08. A week later he was at Martin, Michigan's U.S. 131 for the PHR Championships. Don singled in the first round with a 6.11 but in the second round his 6.22 lost to eventual winner Burgin's 6.18. He got back into the winner's circle at the NHRA U.S. Nationals at Indy. He was the quickest in qualifying with a 6.06-241.93. In eliminations, he ran 6.14-234.37 in the first round to beat Meyer's 6.28-218. In round two, he ran his best of eliminations, a 6.10-228 to beat Tripp Shumake in John Powers' Camaro. In the semifinals, Prock fouled against him and Don ran 6.13-225 to move into the finals. The car facing him in the final was a bit of a surprise. It was Richard Rogers driving the "Green Elephant." Richard's best time had been a 6.21 in qualifying so he was at a bit of a disadvantage. Sure enough, Don won the race with a final round 6.24-236.22 to beat Richard's 6.58-205. Another win came soon after when he won the Irwindale Back to School Race by beating Dave Hough's 6.09 in the final with a 6.05. He was at Seattle on Sept 25 for the NHRA Fallnationals, but he lost early, not even reaching the semifinals. Don had only qualified #7 with a 6.33, very unusual for him. He ran more "normal" at Ontario for the NHRA World Finals where he qualified #2 with a 6.05. He then made like a bracket racer, running three straight 6.06's to enter the final against Bonin. He faltered in the final, slowing to a 6.36 that lost to Gordie's 6.31.

Notes: Fred Goeske came to fame as the second owner of the B&M Plymouth Dealers Barracuda in late 1966. Goeske raced the heavy stock rear engine car until the end of 1967. Tom McEwen ran this car in 1965 and early 1966. February 17, 1967 (National Dragster) says this car ran '8.50s in 1966' but confirmed 8.71 at Las Vegas (per 10-14-66 National Dragster).

Notes: Pat Foster is a famous chassis builder of many funny cars from the 1960s into the 1980s. Foster also drove many funny cars, including the Mickey Thompson Mach I in 1969. The car was the sister car to the one Danny Ongais drove. Foster built both cars, revolutionizing funny car racing in 1969 with his chassis design. The cars were lighter than their competition, which gave them a distinct advantage over the other funny cars during the first half of the season. The competition started to transition to pure funny car chassis to keep up with Foster's machines. While Ongais went on a winning spree, Foster had a series of gremlins that kept him from winning. The car showed potential with a 6.99 clocking along with a reported 215.31 mph blast at Kansas City. But fate stepped in when Pat Foster was involved in a two-car accident with Gerry Schwartz at Dallas International during the NHRA Springnationals. Schwartz did not survive the crash. Foster continued to build funny cars and became a national-event-winning driver. (Photo provided by Drag Racing Memories. Info provided by James Ibusuki) . | Foster built the two Mustangs identical except that the red car had a longer wheelbase. Steve Montrelli remembers that the teams went through 55 Cammer motors that season. Pat started the season by qualifying #7 at the NHRA Winternationals with an 8.24-181.45. He lost to Ron Leslie in the first round. At OCIR's second All-Pro race on Feb 9, a 7.88 was only good enough for first alternate. Funny, Ongais failed to qualify at Pomona and Ongais qualified at OCIR. By Feb 16, both were in the field at the third annual Stardust Open at Las Vegas. Pat ran a first round 7.90-192.30 over Randy Walls and Charlie Allen broke against him in the semifinal so it became an all Mickey Thompson Mustang final when he faced Ongais in the final. Pat got crossed up and slowed to a 9.85-161.57 for the runner-up spot. He had some gremlins at Lions on Feb 22 for an eight car show when he lost fire against Ray Alley in the first round. On March 2 at the Bakersfield March Meet, he failed to qualify. A 7.64 qualified second to his teammate at the HRM Championships on March 16. Pat ran a 7.57-192.30 in the first round over Johnny Wright, and a second round 7.66-191.48 beat Dave Beebe's 7.78-196 in the Super Chief. In the semifinal a 7.64-191.89 beat Mike Van Sant's 7.96-187 in the Invader. But unfortunately, a broken drive shaft stopped him in the finals, giving Charlie Allen (7.59-194) the win.

Notes: Long Nose 85-86. First lock-up clutch at Indy resulted in best ever times of 5.509 at 271.41, which were not backed up for records. Hit the first 5.40s with a 5.425 low qualifier at the Ennis Chiefs which was not backed up as a record. However, a 5.543 at Ennis was backed up as the new record. Ran 266.66 and 265.17 at 86 Chiefs. | This was Kenny's last year with the Tempo body and probably one of, if not, his best season. The NHRA season started at Pomona for the NHRA Winternationals. He qualified first with a 5.60 and continued to run 5.60's in the first two rounds over Rick Johnson and John Martin. But in the semifinals, he smoked the tires and lost to eventual winner Tim Grose who ran a 5.61 for the win. Kenny's 5.60 held for Low ET. At the Gatornationals, he qualified first with a track record 5.59 at 261.17. In the first round he beat Tom Hoover's 5.76-254 with a 5.64-255.24. In round two, a 5.66-256.99 beat John Force's 5.91-212 but he lost to a holeshot by Tom McEwen in the semifinals, when Tom's 5.67-256 beat Kenny's 5.65-255.82. He was runner-up to Paul Smith at the IHRA Pro-Am at Rockingham and once again he walked off with Low ET honors with a 5.58. At the NHRA Southern Nationals in April, he qualified first with a 5.67-260.86 (Low ET and Top Speed), but then suffered a rare first round loss. He got out qualified for the first time that year at the NHRA Cajun Nationals when Force ran 5.66 (Low ET) while Kenny had to settle for the second position with a 5.69-253.73. But for the second race in a row, he lost in the first round. This time his 5.88-237.52 lost to Johnny West's 5.83-252 in the "Hawaiian." At Bristol he got another runner-up finish at the IHRA Springnationals. He set Low ET at 5.57 but in the final he blew an engine letting Grose's 5.87-231 get the victory. Another runner-up finish followed at the NHRA Springnationals. A 5.65-254.02 qualified #2 behind Mark Oswald in the "Candies and Hughes" Firebird. And that's how they finished. The final saw Oswald's 5.76-255 take the win over the Tempo's 5.80-250.13. It was a strange situation, the "Budweiser King" was probably the most feared car to come up against in competition, yet here it was, the middle of June and the team hadn't won yet. Well, that all changed with the running of the Super Stock Nationals. While it wasn't a major event, it was still a satisfying win. Kenny qualified first in the eight car show with a 5.62-257.14 (Low ET and Top Speed). He beat Bruce Larson and Dominic Santucci with times of 5.75-254.95 and 5.72-256.41 before singling for the win with a 5.76-251.39 when West's Daytona broke. Now that the seal was broken, the wins started coming. On June 29 he won the NHRA Grandnationals. He qualified #2 with a 5.71-254.66 but went on to set Low ET at 5.66 and in the final be beat Force with a 5.69-257.28. The following week (July 6), he won the IHRA Northern Nationals at Milan. A 5.81-256.41 (Low ET and Top Speed) qualified first and he beat Smith and Grose with times of 5.95-253.52 and 5.84-252 to meet Oswald in the final. A 5.87-253.52 wrapped up the win. He took his fourth meet in a row at Englishtown for the NHRA Summernationals. He qualified #2 behind Oswald with a 5.62-239.48. He beat Scott Kalitta in the first round and a 5.67-254 beat West in round two. In the semifinals, Hoover smoked the tires against him and his 5.66-257 got lane choice over Force in the final. Once again Bernstein prevailed, running 5.65-259.39 for another win. He managed to get into the finals at the next NHRA race, the Mile High Nationals at Denver. Kenny qualified first with a 5.84-227.96 and made his way into the final to meet Oswald. It took a Low ET of the meet run by Oswald to keep Bernstein out of the winners circle again. Mark's 5.81-252 nipped Kenny's close 5.82-247.52. He won the PHR Championships at US 131, Martin, Michigan. A 5.79-247.25 qualified first in the sixteen car field. In the first two rounds he ran 5.74 and 5.50 while beating Bob Gottschalk and Scott Kalitta. But in the semifinals, he set track records of 5.72-259.36 to beat Grose's 5.94. In the final, he ran Oswald again. But Kenny took the win easily with a 5.77-257.87 when Mark had problems and slowed to a 7.55-120. On August 17, Kenny set Low ET in qualifying first at the NHRA Northstar Nationals with a track record 5.67 at 251.39. Unfortunately, in the first round, he fouled away a 5.81 against Billy Meyer. The following week (August 24), he was back in the winner's circle at Norwalk for the IHRA World Nationals. He qualified #2 (behind Oswald), but improved to a meet's best of 5.57-260. In the final, he met and beat Oswald.

Notes: Kendall GT-1 "Rebel." Held NHRA record with this car. Is the 215 run legit? - DW | Confirmed 7.45 at Memphis. | Bobby won the AHRA Southern Nationals at Memphis on May 31, running a 7.74-191.31 in the final. On June 28, at Miami-Hollywood, he met Paula Murphy for a best two out of three match race. In the first race, he set a 7.65 track record at 194.38 over Paula who fouled on an 8.17-189 pass. Woods won all three races with second and third runs of 7.78-191.88 and 7.73-190.66. On July 6 he was runner-up to Arnie Behling when they both ran 7.72 in the final of US 30's Grand Prix of Drag Racing. Bobby's speed was 204. The following day, they ran again at US 30 and this time he won with a 7.58-207 (Top Speed) after earlier setting Low ET at 7.49. On July 11, he faced a tough match race against Leonard Hughes at Memphis. The first race went to Woods' 7.59-191 when Hughes got out of shape. He won the second race as well with a 7.61-191.92 beating Hughes' 7.65-202. In the third race, Leonard's 7.71-195 beat Woods' 7.78 but his two wins had already won Woods the match. On Aug 3 at Shelby Raceway, he set a new NHRA record at 7.58 while beating Ed Schartman three straight. His times were 7.58-194, 7.54-191, and 7.58-190. Ed's best was a 7.97-181. Still on the match race trail, he met Sid Foster on Aug 9 at Palmetto and won three straight with a 7.56-198 winning the first race when Foster fouled on a 7.72-194 pass. Foster's Torino broke and couldn't make the final two races so Woods' ran a 7.54-180 while breaking a blower drive, and a track record 7.39 at 201. On Sept 7, he went back to Shelby Raceway for the Memphis FC 500. He ran a first round 7.62 when Frank Oglesby's Cougar broke. In the second round, a 7.50 beat Gary Dyer in the Mr. Norm Charger. In the final, his 7.45 beat Roger Lindamood's 7.50. He qualified eighth at the NHRA Nationals at Indy with a 7.45. Kelly Chadwick's 7.38-196 beat his 7.55-199.11 in the first round. At the 1,000 foot track at Southeastern Dragstrip, they held an eight-car show on Sept 28. Bobby ran a first round 6.20 over Scottie Sharp. In the semifinal, a 6.53 beat Paul Array's Cuda. But a final round 6.15 by Curtis Wasson gave Woods the runner-up spot. On Oct 19, he was at Courtland for a best of three match against Schartman's Cougar driven by Arnie Behling. Woods won all three races with 7.62, 7.64, and 7.66 times. He ran a match race at Dallas on Oct 26 against Don Garlits dragster. There was no handicap as the cars ran heads-up. Although Woods got out first in every run, he still lost all three races. As the season ended he took another win at the Turkey Trot Nationals at Gainesville on Nov 30. He set Low ET in the final when his 7.30-193.76 beat Joe Petruccelli. - Ron Howard

Notes: Gene Snow was one of the top '60s funny car stars in his "Rambunctious" Dodges. Snow went through the ranks of Super Stocks, F/Xs, and flip-top funny cars. Even though Gene won the U.S. Nationals twice in a row in '66 and '67 with his Dodge, it was his '69 Mini-Charger was considered one of the top ten funnies of the '60s. The second Charger, the mini-version, replaced the full sized one he debuted at the end of '68. Snow had been working on the direct drive Crowerglide setup and perfected it with the '69 Charger. Snow has never been known to shy away from a new idea. The Mini-Charger ran a best ET of 7.13 at 213.27 mph. With the Crowerglide direct drive unit, the car would leave the line behind the automatic transmission funny cars of the day and charge by them on the big end. The car was one of the first funny cars to top the 200 mph barrier and Snow did it on a regular basis. The chassis for Snow's killer top end direct drive Mini-Charger was built by R&B race Cars of Kenosha, Wisconsin (John Buttera and Dennis Rollain). NOTE: This photo is actually the '68 Logghe car with a new Fiberglass Ltd., molded in red metal flake, '69 Mini-Charger body that Gene ran throughout 1969. This is the car that ran 7.13 at Rockingham, NC. The R&B car was driven by Jake Johnston (see the photo in item 4013). Ran 213.78 at Rockingham NC on 9-69. | A 7.65-199.54 qualified third at the AHRA Springnationals at Bristol on June 8. He beat Malcolm Durham with an even better 7.55-202.24 in the first round but he burned two pistons doing it and was unable to return for the second round. He then went to Dallas on June 15 for the NHRA Springnationals where he made a 7.70-200 qualifying pass and was then told by NHRA officials that the car was disqualified for being too narrow. He ran a best of three match race against Jim Maybeck's Corvair at LaPlace on June 22. He won all three races with runs of 7.79-193.12, and 8.69-196.96 when Maybeck broke. He soloed in the final race, running 7.57 at a track speed record of 204.08. Snow won an eight car show in Dallas on Sept 20. He beat Mart Higginbotham in the first round with a 7.55-163. In the semifinal, a 7.29-204.54 beat Kelly Chadwick's 7.48-194. In the final, he set both ends of the track record with a 7.24-206.88 over Cogo Eads. The following week (Sept 28) came the AHRA US Open at Rockingham. He won the event over Higginbotham with a 7.13 track record.

Notes: Doug Thorley's Corvair is one of the best remembered funny cars of the Sixties. It was known both for its performance and its looks. The Corvair replaced his "Chevy 2 Much" '65 Chevy II. The new Pat Foster, Ron Scrima-built piece had tinted PlExiglas windows, a lace paint job, and gold painted Halibrand mags. The car was the poster child of late Sixties fads. Thorley had one of the great weekends of his career at Indy '67. The Doug's Headers Corvair ran 7.69 to win the race over a number of Hemi-powered machines. The 7.69 run and Indy win were the high point of Thorley's funny driving career. The notoriety from the win led to Thorley getting a deal with American Motors to build a rear-engine funny car, but the AMC machines never reached the success of the Chevy. On August 6, 1967, Doug Thorley and his supercharged Corvair ran the quickest pass to date by a Funny Car, a 7.86-184 mph. That day at Lions he also backed it up with a superb 7.91. At the Indy Nationals of that year he also ran a nice 7.83, winning the race as well. -- BS | Components: 490 cubes (stroked 427 Chev), GMC 6-71 blower, Enderele "bugcatcher" injection, Art Carr TorqueFlite-9" Ford rear w, 3.90 cogs, Exhibition Engineering (Pat Foster and Ron Scrima) chassis, coil-over shocks. Featured in 9-67 Car Craft. -- RT

Notes: Sunday Oct 12, 1975: The "Snake" makes history on a pit lane drag strip no less, at Ontario: 5.987 at 237.46 in the semis against Raymond Beadle at the Winston World Finals. Also went 241.53 for the sport's first 240 fuel FC. - Ricko. | Strange thing about the 241. It was not possible on the 3 decimal clocks of the day, which only displayed 241.28 and 241.93. It is likely that Prudhomme actually ran 241.93, but the clock was misread as 241.53. Inaugural member of the Cragar Five Second Funny Car Club. Won 6 of 8 NHRA National events in '75 - biggest loss was Indy to Beadle and the Blue Max. | Started the '75 season with the 'Cuda but the Monza debuted at Beeline for the AHRA Winternationals. Things didn't start so well for the Monza. First off, the tow rig broke down outside of Phoenix and had to be towed in. Then once it arrived, Don went to make the car's first pass ever and the rear end broke. After getting it fixed,he ran a 6.40 to qualify #3. He lasted until round two where the Monza got crossed up and lost to Billy Meyer driving Gene Snow's Vega. With the bad luck behind him, Don towed into Pomona for the Winternationals where he ran a 6.25-228.42 to qualify #2. In the first round, he beat Meyer's tire smoking 8.15 with a 6.39-189.87. In round two, a 6.37 beat Neil Leffler in Jim Terry's potent Mustang. In the semifinals, a 6.28-212.76 beat Charlie Therwhanger in Mickey Thompson's Grand Am. He picked up his first win of the year with the Monza with a 6.24-226.70 in the final over Mike Miller who broke in Jim Green's "Green Elephant" Vega. On March 2, Prudhomme shocked everyone when he laid down a 6.08-235.60 to qualify first at Famoso for the Bakersfield March Meet. The times were good for Low ET and Top Speed as well as new track records. But after qualifying, his times weren't so good. He singled in the first round with an easy pass when Gary Burgin's Mustang II broke. In round two, a 6.51-212 beat Leroy Chadderton's quicker 6.48-222. A tire smoking 7.91 in the semifinals beat John Lombardo. And in the final, he ran a 7.17-141.28 to take the runner-up spot to Dale Pulde's 6.53-196 in the "Eastern Raider" Mustang II. At Gainesville for the Gatornationals, Don got the pole with a 6.39 (Low ET) at 205.47. Tommy Grove's Mustang lost to Prudhomme's 6.61 in the first round and Tom Raley's Vega lost to the Monza's 6.53-198.23 in round two. A semifinal 6.87-167 advanced to the finals when Shirl Greer got out of shape. In the final, Don got his second NHRA national event win of the year with a 6.52-172.74 getting the win over Tom Prock whose "Custom Body" Dart broke a rear end. Portland held the Seattle Opener and Prudhomme made it into the final before losing to Ed McCulloch. At the NHRA Division Six Opener on May 31 at Seattle, Don qualified first, set Low ET, and won the race over McCulloch who broke in the final. Don went 3 for 3 at NHRA's third national event of the year, the Springnationals at National Trail. He ran Low ET and Top Speed in qualifying first and then ran 6.31-200.44 over Jim Liberman's 6.59, a 6.40-219.51 over Jim Nicoll's 6.56, and a 6.84 over Greer in the semifinals when they both smoked the tires. In the final he ran Raymond Beadle behind the wheel of the "Blue Max." It was an interesting final when the "Max" had its Mustang II body come unhinged and blow off shortly after leaving the line. Don went on to score a 6.46 victory. Beadle got back at Prudhomme at the third Division Three race at Cincinnati when he beat Don in the final with a 6.43-219 over the Monza's 7.19-147.29. He was runner-up at the NHRA Division One race at Maple Grove on June 21 as well. He qualified first with a 6.53 and made his way into the final to run Harlan Thompson in the "Fireball Vega. Harlan ran a Low ET and Top Speed 6.36-222 to beat Prudhomme for the victory. He lost his first NHRA national event of the year at the Summernationals on July 13. He set Low ET in qualifying first with a 6.22-205.01. But in the first round he got crossed up and shut off to a 9.55-89.46 against Tom McEwen. Don wasn't down long as he picked up his fourth NHRA National event win of the season at the Grandnationals in Canada on August 16. Once again he qualified first with a 6.46-207.37. He beat Burgin in the first round with a 6.47-212.26 and in the semifinal, a 6.59-222.22 beat Bob Pickett. In the final he ran Prock again. Don set Low ET in the final with a 6.45-224.43 getting the win. He won the fourth Division One race at Maryland International, as a final round 6.79-225.00 (Top Speed) beat Larry Fullerton's "Trojan Horse" Mustang II. Another win was added to his long list when he won the PHR Championships at US131 Martin, Michigan. He qualified first with a 6.28-233.76 then ran 6.12-213.27 to beat Greer's Mustang II in the first round. A semifinal 6.28-220.04 beat Denny Savage in the "Chi-Town Hustler." In the final he ran a 6.12-222.77 to beat Vic Cecelia's 6.35-225 in Charlie Proite's "Telstar." Prudhomme and Beadle staged their own little war at the NHRA US Nationals at Indianapolis. They qualified first and second with Don's 6.17-232.55 (Top Speed) getting the #2 spot. In the first round, Don beat Ron O'Donnell in the "Damn Yankee" with a 6.16. In the second round, a 6.21 beat Pulde's 6.94 in the "Arizona Wildcat" and in the semifinals, a 6.45 beat Pickett's tire smoking 7.89 in Mickey Thompson's car. In the final, Prudhomme got beat. Raymond shot to a 6.16-226 for the win over the "Snake's" 6.26-224.44. After that, Don went to Portland International for the NHRA Division Six final. He qualified first with a 6.44-196.50 and advanced past the first round with a 6.69-175.78 when Miller broke in the "Green Elephant." A semifinal 6.20-193.96 beat Rich Rogers and in the final, he unleashed Low ET with a 6.12-211.76 getting the win over Gordie Bonin.

Notes: Funny car on altered chassis. Just to ad a little insight to the discussion of who had the first funny car. This question has been asked many times before. If anyone has any other info, I'd be interested in hearing about it. To clarify the definition of "funny car," it's a tube chassis, all glass body, supercharged engine. To the best of my knowledge, I built the first car that was known as a "funny car." Attached is a picture of the car. I ran it for the first time the third week of May 1965 at U.S. 30 Drag Strip in Gary, Indiana. The following weekend I ran at Gil Cohen's Detroit Dragway on Saturday night & Toledo Dragway on Sunday. I have the timing slips. Ron Pellegrini. Also credited with 9.21 at 164.83. | If you check it out you may find out that this was DON SCHUMUACHER'S first funny car. - Dave Lindsay

Notes: Car built in 68 to replace the scary Dart. Snow's first Logghe car. I think this started with a B&M Torqueflite but by the end of summer had a Crowerglide and began running 200 mph. I know this car ran in the 7's, need to check best time. The 205 at OCIR was at the mfg. meet so it is real. - Bill McLauchlan | On August 17, at Houston, Snow hit 200.88 for first 200mph funny. At Wichita, 202.70 was new mark. In Oct at Irwindale, a 196.50 was good enough for new track record. - Ron Howard 7.65 at San ANtonio in Dart or Charger? DW
