Hay John...

You should get an e-mail from me, but forwarded to you through Tom Barnhill with information that I have about it. But it won't help much. It seems that the consesnus of opinion in the N.E. by people who know is that the "Little Giant" just can't be found.

The only real atlernative would be to re-create it, and that would be easy because...1). Alterds are simple and 2). A guy named Chuck "Ziggy" Sabis, who knows the Brazee Bro's and helped build it in the first place also has scrapbooks of pictures and information on it.

I have also checked in with Bruce Hertel who also ran a small altered at Dover back then, and later some dragsters. Bruce is in Oragon now and he canvases the west coast. If that car were out there...Bruce would know it... But Bruce also has no information...sorry.

It would really be BIG if someone were to come up with Brazee's "Little Giant" That car was a real crowd pleaser and loved by many people. He held the B/A NHRA record and won his class at Indy in '64 with it.

This dosen't look good at all...but good luck anyway.

Look for my e-mail.

He sold it to someone in Torrington ,Ct. ...Who sold it to someone in Pittsfield, Mass. Then it was obviously Run a lot at Lebanon Valley. Fred is now inTexas and last talked to George about a year ago.This shot taken of third owner in 1970 and possably last appearance at Dover.
