Hi, from Oregon! Great site, looking forward to talking about old times. Bruce
Hello Bruce, I have photos of your Altered with a new blue paint job and those big ram horms . As soon as i locate them i will post them.-Bob Harris
Are you still looking?
I’d like to see the photo as i do not have any color shots of my own.
I was 11 year old when I bought my copy of Rodding & Restyling with Bruce’s ’32 on the cover. Still have it, still think the car is cool. Years later when I got the go through the Donafrio negatives looking for Alley Oop photos that was one I had a print made of. Of all the Dover shots I have that is my favorite, and a copy is on its way to Bruce. Only went to Dover once in 1961, still have my ticket stub, and that day is as clear in my memory as yesterday.
I can’t believe Bruce towed his Hemi Altered…….WITH A CHEVY !!!!! Bruce ?…….. Les – Untouchables A/A
Wonder what other Gems are in this Card collecxtion…never knew about …but searching it out…Maybe Bruce can tell us about the Photo -where-when ?….OH BRUCE …where Did that car end up? what a Restoration THAT would be !
Bobby S,.checkout the ahead of its time double loop bar on Hellzapopin in the above pic!!
that’s the one I have, was in contact with Ron Abbott
he is kind enough to go over the pictures I send him and
confirm that it is the car, as per out phone talk it is the same car
as he raced it. KOOL,,,,,
The injected motor in that picture also answers my question
about it being injected, I was told that is was but never saw a
good picture of it.
I also got in touch with Dode Martin, co founder of
Dragmaster chassis, now playing phone tag between the two of us.
He is also happy to hear another of his chassis’s are still out there
and will answer any questions I have.
Hope all is well out there, hope you can come east for
any of the 2010 Dover Reunion or Dover events.
ps if you also remember Pete Improta from Mahopac Dodge
he say HI..
