Notes: Blown fuel altered wheelbase. Farkonas went on to run the Farkonas-Coil-Minick Chi-Town Hustler funny cars. Coil and Minick both joined John in mid year 1966. I went on to work with Gary Dyer at that time. Dave was the builder and only driver of this car in 1965 and early 1966. Pat Minick and Austin Coil both drove the car after David. - Dave Lindsay | Also 10.060-137.00 at Rockford (9-25-65 Drag News).

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
