    Charles,
    I was a Mopar guy at Dover from 68′ thru 73′, and took many photo’s, primarily of the Mopars.
    I have several photo’s, both black and white, and color, of a couple of 6-pack cars.
    A gentleman from Peekskill, New York, named Danny or Denny ran a Hemi Orange
    Super Bee in 69 and early 70. His car was a four-speed, and ran in C/Stock. I have a couple of pictures of his car in the pits, and one coming up the return road. If I recall, it didn’t have headers, maybe slicks only. Ran 13.60’s. Could this be your car. In the photo I cannot see the passenger side window.

    Tony,

    Check out this picture from the spring of 1970. At the starting line, foreground
    69 1/2 white Road Runner 6-pack, C/S, in background on spectator’s side, a
    red or orange 69 1/2 Super Bee 6-pack. Looks like the white Road Runner got the holeshot.
    Could this be your car. Can’t see the driver of the Super Bee. Looks like the
    Road Runner was sponsored by, possibly “Croton Deli”, the lettering is hard to figure out.

    Paul ❓

    Tony,

    Point to remember. Those 6-pack engines had special hardened cranks, with extra mass.
    The 6-pack motors were externally balanced, and came with a special harmonic balancer/damper, that has stay intact with the crank. Those monster 6-pack connecting
    rods are indestructible. Remember getting a set to put in my 69′ 440 Cuda, and wondered
    if the heavy rods would restrict RPM’s. They did. Still, they are a thing of beauty, and
    a wonderful piece of machined internal components, from Chrysler.

    Still looking for sniglets of your Peekskill-based car.

    The mention of Croton Deli sparked a memory. There was a Croton Speed Shop that ran some strong cars. I think one was a Hemi owned by Bumper DeWhitt (spl). The shop was owned by the cousin of a guy I worked with at George Cook Ford in North Tarrytown.

    I remembered it as a post car. I remember the guy I worked with saying Bumper got in trouble for improvising a drag strip on a length of freshly blacktopped highway. Tore it all up! I think my friends cousin was Tony Caveleri?

    I know this isn’t the right thread, but does anyone remember Harry harrison’s “Yellow Brick Road” six pack Road Runner? harry ran “Thunder Speed” in Beacon.
    Incidentally, Harry had the most awsome pics ever taken of Jungle Pam, which have never been published.

    I remember Thunder Speed, I moved to Dutchess in 75. I was the parts mgr at Heritage Ford on 9D. Two of our mechanics were charging dry gas out on every car they worked on. I went to Thunder Speed to pick up a Power valve for my Holley and there was the dry gas for sale on the counter!

    Harry was an IBM’er. He had a friend of mine, Rick Green, run the store by day. This was back in the mid ’70’s shortly before I went active duty in teh Air Force.

    See,

    That’s what is so great about this site. You open one Dover door, and you then enter a maze of doors. talking about a 69 1/2 Super Bee in Virginia, leads us to Peekskill, Croton Deli,
    Croton Speed Shop, a 66′ Plymouth Hemi from Heckman Motors, Thunder Speed in
    Beacon, and an IBM’er. Great site, good reading.

    Paul

    Speaking of the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. Doesn’t “Mine the Bird” remind you of a Hemi, the way that horse kicks in a the top end.
