Notes: Photo from 1992 IHRA Winter Nationals. Ran In-n-Out car & Petosa Daytona, switching back & forth for 1992. Came out with a new body during IHRA Springnationals, but blew it off on its first run, which was also its last run. Fans carried off large portions of it as mementos. Confirmed 5.266 at 281.60 at Houston Spring 92. Need to confirm best times for the In N Out car for 1992. See DragStats when the events are known.

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: In '73, Jenner built another Don Long chassised vehicle. Also called the Pacemaker Vega, Bonin drove it part of the season with Frank Kirchner taking over for the remainder. Best clocking for the Automatic Radio sponsored car was 6.29 seconds at 236 MPH. - Bud De Boer (need confirmation of where these times were run).

Notes: Ron set both ends of the NHRA national record in July when he ran 6.41, 227.84 at Tri-City Dragway, Saginaw, Michigan. Although her name doesn't appear on the car several period publications mention Myrna Gelfand as the owner. On the front spoiler of the L&M photo that I've included you'll notice it reads "Super Jewess presents the Kosher-Kuda," which is a reference to her. Also Ron had a Division 7 competition number for much of 1972. He moved back to the Midwest by the end of the year and had a division 3 comp number in 1973. Myrna Gelfand was Don Cook's sister. She was the money behind his funny cars. Gelfand was her married name. She was portrayed as a mik clad mystery woman handing out money to funny car teams at the time. The Cuda disappeared in Chicago. There was a repainting no one wanted to discuss. It turned up in Australia with a crushed roof, never to be seen again. - Norman Hechtkoff
