hi everybody, finally getting around to signing up here. I run a 61 Falcon Gasser, 460 Ford Powered. The car was originally built and raced by Dan Roman from Meriden,CT. Ran mostly at Connecticut Dragway, but made it to Dover, Leb Valley and NE Dragway. He sold it as a roller in ’75. I bought the rotting corpse in ’95, restored it to it’s former glory, and have been romping on it since then. Raced with Eastern States Timing Ass’n, and currently run with NETO and EAST COAST GASSERS.
Only made it up to Dover a few times with my buddy’s 63 Impala SS. He ran A/S and blew the driveshaft center bearing twice. We lived in Eastchester then, and it seemed like Dover was so far away!!!

Pat good to see an ole gasser revived.They were actually the ‘Godfather’ of drag cars in the begining.Modified ‘street’ rods that were ‘dual’ purpose.Driving them on the street during the week,and of to the ‘drags’ on sundays.I enjoyed seeing you run at Island Dragway with the Dover Meets,along with displaying it at the Dover Danbury Show.You did a great job restoring it,and I’m sure your happy with it’s performance.
Hey Verminator…..I’ve seen your Ford at shows and It’s a very impressive ride……….If you had that Gasser when you lived in Eastchester (with the special Dover Eastchester rules) you would have run N/Stock… 😆 😆 😆 Welcome aboard………Don…..
