Notes: Tommy Grove's "Going Thing" 1969 Ford Mach I Mustang was one of the best Ford-powered funny cars of all time. Grove was loyal to the 427 SOHC engine and Ford. Logghe Stamping Company built the chassis and Paul Shedlik built and painted the Mach I Mustang body. Larry Shinoda designed the paint scheme. Master tin man Al Bergler did the aluminum work. Grove debuted the car in late 1968 and raced it through 1970. Tommy ran 7.28 at 203 in 1969 to become one of the first 200 MPH funny cars. Grove achieved notoriety for cracking 200 mph while at the same time rumored to be experimenting with an exotic fuel (hydrazine?) | Grove had a bad year in '69. At least in comparison to '68 and '70. He had lots of transmission problems and was also trying to sort out the Boss 429 as well as running the proven SOHC. He failed to qualify at both the Irwindale New Year's Day Race and the second OCIR All-Pro race on Feb 9 where an 8.08 was only good for the eighth alternate. He also failed to qualify at Bakersfield for the March Meet. Grove was the Killer Car on the match race trail in '68 and was feared by everyone who matched against him, but '69 was not the same. He ran Fred Goeske at Capitol on April 12 and lost two straight even though he set top speed at 195. He ran better at Aquasco on May 4 for their fourth annual FC Invitational. A first round 7.91-191.08 beat Tom McEwen's off-pace 8.23 and another 7.91-191.88 in the semi's advanced over Frank Oglesby in the Don Nicholson Cougar. In the final, Tom fouled against Jim Liberman's 7.86-189. On May 27, Aquasco held another eight-car FC race. Grove's 8.10-188.66 in the first round lost to Leonard Hughes' 7.83-197. Liberman met Grove at York US 30 on June 7 for another match race and JJ beat Grove three straight races. On July 3, Edgewater held an eight car FC show. Unfortunately, Charlie Allen strapped a 7.37 low et of the meet run on Tom in the first round, putting the Mustang on the trailer. He also lost in the first round at Capitol's King of King's FC event on July 16. This time Oglesby's 7.98-178 beat Tom's ailing 8.71-187.88. He ran much better at the Cars Magazine Meet on July 20 where he set a 7.42 track record at 201 in the first round while beating Al Graeber. In round two a 7.74-197.36 beat Ron Rivero's out-of-shape pass. But then the rain came and the rest of the race was to be run on Sunday. Grove had prior commitments and could not run Sunday. Liberman had a rematch with Grove at Capitol on Sept 20 and once again JJ prevailed although the times were close. Jim ran a best of 7.28-199.10 to Grove's 7.29-203. The following day (Sept 21) he ran at the third annual New England FC Championships where he set a 7.30 Epping track record in the first round while losing to Roger Lindamood's 7.33-198. Tom's speed was 199.50. An interesting thing happened to Grove on Oct 11 when he showed up to run at the OCIR FC Invitational. He was informed that his competition license had expired back in Jan and he was unable to run. After straighting out the driver's license issue, he showed up at Irwindale on Oct 18 for the East/West Championships but lost to Liberman's 7.76-195 in the first round with an out-of-shape 8.23. All cars had run the first round with the losers going into a bracket two while the winners ran bracket one. So Tom then met Rich Siroonian in bracket two but his 8.02-184.80 lost to Rich's 7.53-199. He competed at Sears Point on Nov 2 but lost a blower early in the race. - Ron Howard

Notes: Russell "James" Liberman topped the 60sFunnyCars.com poll as the number one funny car racer of the 1960s. Not much more can be said about Russell Liberman, the man. Liberman ranked number 17 on the list of top NHRA drivers, had two NHRA national events victories (one of those as an owner), and an infamous legacy rivaling that of a rock star. Russell began his funny car career in such cars as the "Hercules," the "Gypsy" Corvette, and the "Brutus" GTO. Russell's stardom skyrocketed when he built the first "Jungle Jim" Chevy II. By 1969, "Jungle Jim's" long, smoking burnouts (some preceded by a fire burnout), high-speed backups, and long, twisting wheelstands had cemented his place as a popular racer with the fans. The showmanship had previously been backed up with average finishes, but these stopped in 1969. Russell had two Chevrolet-powered Novas in 1969 with Clare Sanders in the second car. The two started the year off with a bang with Sanders beating Jungle at Pomona for the Winternationals title. Liberman then went on the match race circuit to win countless races, running bests of 7.28, 198.64. By the end of 1969, Jungle had one of the most successful years in history for a Chevy powered funny car. Liberman knew that the day of the successful Chevy powered engine in AA/FC was limited. By the end of the next year, "Jungle" had switched to a Hemi. (Info from Dennis Doubleday). | JJ started his season by qualifying #13 at the Irwindale New Year's Day race and a first round 7.67-191.08 beat Fred Goeske's 7.88-184. In the second round, his Nova came up ailing against Don Schumacher who unloaded a 7.52-198 to put Jim on the trailer. He faced off against Charlie Allen for a match race on Jan 12 at Irwindale and won his first race with an 8.12-191.08 over Allen's wheelstanding Dart. Allen came back with a 7.74-182 to win the second race over Jim who broke a rocker arm. JJ won the deciding match with an 8.23-190.26 when Charlie pulled another wheelie and lost. At the AHRA Winternats, Jim beat Tony Wahlay and Allen before meeting Clare Sanders in his second car in the semi's. He beat a motor blowing Clare but since they were taking turns driving each of the cars he let Sanders drive in the final. He qualified #7 with a 7.74-186.32 on Feb 9 at the second OCIR All-Pro race. He lost to Don Schumacher in the first round. JJ raced at an eight-car show at Lion's on Feb 22 and ran a first round 7.72-184.42 over Steve Bovan. He lost to Rich Siroonian's 7.71 in the semi's with a 7.82. Another match race was run this time against Sid Foster in the Super Cuda at Cecil in March. JJ won the first race with a 7.83-171.11 beat Sid's 8.10-183 and Jim wrapped it up in the second race with a 7.60-187.10 to beat Foster's 8.07-169 and win the match. On April 6, he ran Schumacher at Connecticut and beat him three straight setting a 7.62 track record as well. He then took on Ron Rivero on April 13 at Atco where he won his first race with an out of shape 8.34-172.41. Ron won the second race with an 8.06-187 when JJ shut down early, and he went on to win the match with a 7.81-196 when Liberman crossed the centerline in the last race. He got back into his winning ways on April 19 at Blaney when he took on Schumacher. JJ won the first race, but Don won the second race with an 8.00-191 beating JJ's 8.07-182. Both were up for the final, but Jim had a good leave and won the match with an 8.00-182 that beat Schumacher who set 7.94-190 track records in losing. Another match race win came the next day on April 20 at Aquasco where he beat Dick Loehr two straight with a best of 7.89. He lost a match race on May 3 at York US 30 when Pat Foster beat him three straight. Jim got out of shape on his first race and lost to Pat's 8.11-175. In the second race, Jim fouled away a new track record of 7.66 at 191.48 against the Mustang's 7.82-189.86. In the last race, Foster reset the track record with a 7.63-188.28 over Jim's 7.71. He traveled to Aquasco the next day (May 4) for an eight-car show, where a first round 7.84-187.88 beat Malcolm Durham's 8.13-180. In the semi-final, he set low et with a 7.81-189.06 over Don Schumacher's 7.98-191. He faced Tommy Grove in the final but Grove fouled and Jim ran 7.86-189.06 for the win. On May 14 he met Dick Loehr at Martin, Mich for a match race. Jim won his first race with a 7.80-188.28 when Loehr fouled (7.86-189.06). Dick came back to win the next two races and the match with a best of 7.72 to JJ's best of 7.76-189.86. Way up north, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, he had a match race against Pat Minick. The Chi-Town Hustler was running strong beating Liberman in all three races with track records of 7.45-196. He went back to Aquasco for another eight-car show on May 27, and again he won, beating a fouling Durham in the final. Back as US 131 in Martin, Mich on May 29, for a UDRA race. Dick Harrell ran a 7.84-192 to just nip JJ's 7.85-184.04 in the first round. Early in June, Larry Arnold in the Super Cuda met JJ at Suffolk for a best of three match. Jim ran 7.72-189.86 over Arnold's 8.16-179 in the first race, a 7.54-194.80 over Arnold's 7.66-190.26 in the second race and a 7.52-193.54 to make it three straight over Larry's 7.66-191. Another match race followed on June 7 at York US 30 against Grove's Mustang. Once again JJ won three straight with times of 7.61-191.70, 7.65 and a 7.70. The following day (June 8) he ran the New England FC Championships at Epping. A first round 7.69-187.90 beat Al Hanna and a 7.61-190.22 beat Chevy foe Bruce Larson in round two. In the semi's, JJ needed only a 7.95 to beat Roger Lindamood's ailing Charger at 11.37. In the final a 7.73-189 beat Paul Stefansky's 8.18 for the win. At an eight-car show at New York, he set low et at 7.49-193.54 while beating Frank Oglesby, but while lining up for his semi-final race the Chevy lost oil pressure and Jim shut off. Aquasco held their President's Gold Cup Championships on June 22. JJ ran a first round 7.86-183.66 over George Reese and then set a short-lived 7.74 track record at 190.66 over Lew Arrington in the semi's. In the final, Schumacher reset the track record with a 7.68-195 run that beat JJ's 7.75-194.38. Another runner-up finish followed on July 3 at an eight-car show at Edgewater. This time, Pat Minick's 7.57-191 beat JJ's 7.66-187.88 in the final. The next day (July 4) he was in Suffolk for an eight-car show where a first round 7.59-187.88 beat Ron Rivero. In the semi's, Arrington's 7.55-193 beat his 7.62-191.08. At Suffolk on July 13, JJ ran a match against Mel Perry. Jim ran a 7.58-191.88 to beat Mel who had his roof blow off in the first round. Della Woods was the backup car and she ran the next two races. Della's 7.92-181 lost to JJ's 7.55-193.12 in race two and a final identical time run by JJ beat Della's 7.98-180 in the third race. Jim set low et at 7.50-177.86 while beating Tom McEwen in the first round at Capitol's King of Kings race on July 16. Roy Gay's 7.94-178 beat him in the second round when the Nova's front tires wouldn't stay on the ground, slowing him to an 8.24-192. On Aug 2, two of the top Chevies met at York US 30 for a match race. It was JJ against Larson and in the first race, a 7.56-191 by JJ beat Larson's 7.65-189. JJ made it two straight with another 7.56 that beat Larson, who got out of shape. On Aug 10 he raced at Atco for the New Jersey State Championships but a broken rear stopped him in the first round. He then went to an eight car show at Detroit Dragway. All cars there made three runs with the winner being the one with the most wins. Lindamood's 8.32-193 beat Jim's 8.57-186 in the first round but JJ came back to win his next two races with a 7.75-187 over Connie Kalitta's 7.76-190 and an 8.00-169 over Arnie Beswick's 8.50-158. - Ron Howard

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: The original "Kingfish" match bash funny car was one the wildest funny cars of the 1960s. Famed Memphis racer Bill Taylor built the car in 1965 with the original wheelbase, but it got a needed extension by John Albright in 1966 to keep up with the new flip tops. The "Kingfish" Barracuda ran a 426 Chrysler Hemi on a heavy load of nitro. California racer Larry Reyes moved to Memphis just to drive the "Kingfish. " The brave driver ran a best of 8.59 at 169 with the car. The machine was retired at the end of the 1966 season to be replaced by a new flip top Barracuda.

Notes: Car started its life with a 421 Pontiac punched out to 440" and running ultra-ultra-rate Mickey Thompson hemi heads before reliability dictated the switch to an early 392 Hemi. An Irwindale ad says this car ran 8.55, and the Hot Rod Yearbook #6 says the best speed was 164.97. (Need confirmation of those times, slightly better than the timeslip-derived numbers provided here. ) Liberman started 1966 in his "Hercules" Chevy II before teaming up with Lew Arrington to make his name with this car. He finished 1966 behind the wheel of his new Chevy II. Liberman did drive the GTO early in 1967, as did owner Lew Arrington. The car was sold to Don Williamson in 1968, and destroyed in a crash later that year with future altered driver Jim Trillo at the wheel. -- RT and DD

Notes: This is that car, my personal favorite of all the Jungle Jim cars. Built by Romeo Palamides of jet car fame in Chicago, painted by Bob Gerdes of Circus Custom Paint, then lettered by the infamous "Mr. J," it was a pretty trick piece at the time. Previously, Jungle had bought cars from various builders and even built a few himself at his shop in West Chester, Pennsylvania. This was Jungle's first store-bought piece in a long time and he decided to take it out to Ontario, California, for the 1972 NHRA SuperNationals. I don't remember the exact numbers, but I do know that one pass that weekend was Jungle's personal best at the time. -- Berserko Bob Doerrer

Notes: Ray built another car and was going to drive it himself. He asked me to come to Memphis for the first race. But we decided that it would be better if I drove the car and so I did after being laid up for a year. In addition to qualifying at Indy 72 with a 6.533, 224.43, we ran 6.48, 6.46, and 6.44 at OCIR at the Manufacturer's Race in 1972. - Dwane Ong, Racin & Rockin with Draglist.com radio show, 6-08-15

Notes: Leroy started the year at the wheel of the Ramchargers Challenger. He was runner-up to Butch Maas at the NHRA Winternationals before winning the NHRA Gatornationals. He switched to the team of Candies & Hughes in the Fall of 71 and promptly reset the NHRA National Record at Amarillo during the NHRA World Finals with an altitude corrected 6.80. At the 1971 OCIR Manufacturers Meet he ran a very competitive 6.74 at 221.13 narrowly missing the final round which pitted the two lowest ET cars.
