Notes: Injected fuel. Dart now AWB. An 8.24-175.50 MAY have been run when the car was injected, but maybe blown. Landy started 1966 in his 1965 Dodge, then sold it to Jim Wetton. Built this Dart, ran it as a pretty much standard wheelbase car, then altered it as pictured here. Aded a blower late in season. Also spent some time in H.L. Shahan's "Drag On Lady." Landy sold this car to Gene Kidder in 1967, who crashed it in 1968. "Dandy" Dick Landy made the transition from Super Stock to A/FX to his final fiberglass funny car. Landy did not make the flip top transition but did switch to the blown nitro combo. "Dandy Dick" was popular with fans because of showmanship backed up with performance. The final "Landy's Dodge" Dart ran 7.96, 196.60. At one race, Landy suffered a major transmission Explosion in front of a Chrysler Executive. That was the straw that broke the camel's back with Chrysler's entry into early funny car racing. Landy went back to Super Stock racing and later went on to a storied Pro Stock career that he financed with a successful engine-building business. (Photo provided by Drag Race Memories.

Notes: Fiberglass shell, Zeuschel-built early hemi, Enderle injection, TorqueFlite (after starting with direct drive)-112" chassis, 2025 lbs. There has been some question as to who became the first female funny driver, but we consider Paula Murphy was the first. Paula had previous racing experiences with sports cars, Indy Cars, NASCAR stock cars, and other forms of racing. In 1966, "Fat Jack" Bynum and Murphy teamed up to build a '66 Mustang funny car called "Miss STP." The home-built chassis was crude at best, but it had a Dave Zeuschel-built 392 Chrysler tuned by Bynum. The uniqueness of a female funny car driver worked for Murphy. Paula was able to get enough bookings to support her as a full-time professional drag racer. The car ran into the eights in the 1967 season. (Photo provided by Mike Ditty.

Notes: Hot on the heels of Jack Chrisman building the "Chrisman's Comet," several racers built car to challenge the big Mercury. Steve Bovan's "Blair's Chevy II" was one of the first to hit the track. Bovan had raced a Mopar AA/Modified Production car, but went with the lightweight Chevy II for the funny car. Bovan gutted the factory built car to come up with this "Match Bash" monster. Chevrolet's new big block 396 engine powered the machine. Steve sold the Chevy to Ed Carter from NorCal in 1967. Carter dubbed it the Chevy II Much and ran mostly at Fremont. The car's performance didn't change much. These times are blown fuel. This car was sold to Ed Carter and Bob Little in 1967, who ran it in 67 and 68, first as the "Chevy II Heavy" and then as the "Color Kart." Bovan built the engine to run on 100% alcohol. Steve ran many match races with the car and ran CC/FD in NHRA competition. The Chevy used to lay down a smoke bank on a run. Bovan ran the "Blair's Speed Shop 396" in '65 and '66 with a 9.29-160 best. (Photo courtesy Bob Plumer and Drag Racing Memories. stats courtesy Dennis Doubleday.

Notes: Delaware's "Joltin Joe" Jacono, circa 1973, ran an East Coast schedule with his popular funny cars. Following Top Fuel efforts in the 60s, Jacono's first flopper was an SOHC powered former Tasca "Brief Encounter" Mustang in 1970 which burned before it had a chance to be sorted out. He followed up with an former Big John Mazmanian "Brief Encounter" Cuda in 71-72 and ultimately this Woody Gilmore chassised "Rollin Stoned" entry. Cartoon character on car was a parody of Jacono's Caveman nickname. Despite his limited schedule Jacono was competitive as evidenced by his second place finish in 73 NED WCS flopper points race. Car was campaigned mostly on a "match race" basis through 1976. Arguably biggest win came at the 75 NHRA National Open at Cecil County over Bill Leavitt. (Photo courtesy Drag Racing Memories)

Notes: Another "character" from the 70s, Dave "Nasty" Benjamin ran altereds and his early Funny Car efforts from his chassis shop in Albuquerque, NM. Benjamin alternated between racing Funny Cars and AA/FAs during the 70s. first funny car effort was Corvette in 72. This car, photographed at the 78 AHRA Winternationals, was destroyed on its maiden outing. Benjamin later took over the cockpit of Nelson Lengle's "Sno-Town Shaker" entry to finish out the 78 season then fielded his own floppers through the 80s and 90s. Benjamin was one of the sport's unheralded innovators introducing 3 valve heads, one of the first dual fuel pump system (80), etc. "Nasty" took his last funny car ride as an owner at the 99 AHRA World Finals at Spokane. is currently doing occasional driving chores in the "Impulse" Funny Car.

Notes: Here is Ronald Swann's match bash Ford Falcon. Swann lived and raced out of the Houston area in the mid-sixties. Charlie Willis and Leonard Abramcik drove the Falcon for Ronald. Carl Parrish, Sr., tuned the car and reports that the team mixed the nitro with some hydrazine, an extremely volatile and unstable rocket fuel. The Falcon featured a 427 Ford Wedge punched out to 488 cubic inches and transferred power through a 4 speed Ford Top Loader with 5.10 rear gears. The setup led to wild wheelstands and woolly runs. Carl Parrish Jr. said the team raced Gene Snow all the time in match racing in Texas. (Photo and info courtesy Carl Parrish Jr.)

Notes: The well-named "Funny Car" was one of the first funny cars to race in Texas. Tom McCroan owned and raced the car out of his car lot in Garland, Texas. The match bash Mopar featured an injected 426 Hemi on nitro. The "Funny Car" was a regular at Green Valley and in match races across Texas. The strange thing about the "Funny Car" was number of drivers who drove it. Tom McCroan drove the car, as did his wife Gladys McCroan. Raefel Shields and Brent Musgrave also drove "The Funny Car." The Mopar ran high nines at best on the cow pasture tracks of Texas. (Photo courtesy Flyin' Phil Elliott).

Notes: Mike Burkhart's first funny car was this steel Chevy II match basher. Burkhart was a terror with his Super Stock '57 Chevrolet Bel Air in the Dallas area. In 1965, Mike built the steel Chevrolet with big block injected Chevy power. Friendly Chevrolet sponsored the stretched wheelbase car. Burkhart won many match races with the strangely painted Chevy II (it was red on one side and blue on the other). Mike was a regular in Texas match races with the Chevy II in 1966, but retired the car at the end of the season to build a Camaro for 1967. (Photo courtesy David Ray).

Notes: The "Super Cuda" was one of several funny cars from the Memphis area in the sixties. Pat Collins built the car in 1968 and teamed up with Bill Taylor to race the beautiful candy apple red Plymouth. The Coleman and Taylor team had raced the "Kingfish" funny car. Coleman sold the car and name to T.B. Smallwood after the 1968 season. The "Super Cuda" proved to be just as good as the old car. Logghe Stamping Company built the chassis and the car was powered by a 426 Chrysler Hemi on 55% Nitro backed by a Coleman and Taylor built transmission, of course. Larry Reyes, Larry Arnold, and Sidney Foster all drove the "Super Cuda" to countless wins. Reyes had the best times in the car with a 7.53 at 198, while Arnold ran 7.76 at 193, and Foster ran 7.76 at 196. In 1968, Reyes won the King of Kings Race at Capitol Raceway, the AHRA Drag World Finals in Wichita, and the Super Stock Invitational in Detroit. -- BS (Photo courtesy Mike Ditty. stats courtesy Dennis Doubleday.

Notes: In 1965, funny cars were gaining popularity across the country. A lot of drag racers and fans alike regarded the funny car, FX cars as "circus" acts and not real race cars. The car that changed a lot of peoples' opinions on funny cars was the Mr. Norm's Grand-Spaulding Dodge. When Norm Kraus and Gary Dyer brought the former Roger Lindamood factory altered wheelbase car to Lions in 1965, the team was not known outside of the Midwest. Dyer then ran 8.63 at Lions, and it went down as one of the great runs in history. The other new funny cars had just broken into the eights. This run and the many victories put Gary Dyer into the headlines. Car sold to Chris Fairly in 1966, repossessed by Norm Kraus, and sold to new owner in Texas. (Photo from Gary Dyer.
