SHAHAN’S (FROM CALIFORNIA) IT WAS A DODGE, NOT HER WINTERNATIONALS WINNING PLYMOUTH…IT WAS TO RUN THE OLD NHRA B/XS(WITH INJECTORS) CXS WITH CARBS CLASSES..PAUL DUBE, A GARAGE OWNER AND HIS DRIVER, BUCKY WERE FROM ANSONIA ,CT….THEY WERE COOL GUYS…FUN LOVIN’ DUDES..(ALWAYS SOME “STEAMY” BABES TOO!!) THEY TOOK THE POWERTRAIN OUT OF THIS “WRECK” AND PURCHASED A DODGE CHARGER FLIP-TOP FUNNY CAR(MIGHT HAVE BEEN “WILD” BILL FLYNN’S) AND RACED SOME WITH US IN TOM “SMOKER” SMITH’S EAST COAST FUEL FUNNY CAR CIRCUIT…ALWAYS LOOKED FORWARD TO SEEING THEM…THEY’D GIVE YOU THE PROVERBIAL “SHIRT OFF THEIR BACK”…FUN TIMES…HAVEN’T SEEN OR HEARD FROM THEM IN YEARS (PROBABLY 20 PLUS)…I “BELIEVE” THE DODGE WAS A ’65…AND THEY BOUGHT FROM SHAHAN IN ’66-’67…THAT’S ALL I KNOW…AND I DON’T KNOW NO MO'(ON THIS SUBJECT!!!) 😆 DRAKE VISCOME
