Bobby, that Flintstone Charger is now restored to original S/S condition. Still in the same family, too. I believe that the current owner (Steve O’neal) said it was originally his uncle’s car????????? It was at the All Hemi Reunion 2 weeks ago.
BOBBY S. suggestion: since you’re scanning these things in so small…how bout you just send snail-mail to me , we’ll put em in my graphics program -resize- “retouch”- brightness and contrast adjust dpi and return them ? ? ? Dino….That’ll save them giant size.
GREAT STUFF WE might have to make a whole Vieo Bob gallery BUT posting like this gives option to reply . ….Al McCormick in the white Comet, Daddy owned the Dealership (Drake-More info !) The New Yorker Chevy II (Westchester Automotive) and a classic pairing of the “Black Arrow” And Bud Faubel’s “Honker”. Notice the ‘instant grip’ Powdered Rosin laid down? everybody had good times that day. MATCH RACE MADNESS !! SUNDAY , At the “Fast Track In the East”
Wasn’t The New Yorker Vic Ferris?
Anybody have info on the altered 66 Chevelle? For a split second it looked like the Palomino of Bobby Woods because of the color, but it certainly is not. His ’66 was all ‘glass on a tube frame and sat lower, eventually with a mile-long stretched nose. His ’64 (or was it ’65?) Chevelle was a steel GM shell and built similarly to this one pictured though.
Andy: “New Yorker”…Big VIC ….correct…Don Kuaer bought Vics “Locomotion” that became “The Equilizer”…DON just Called …watch for him to Check -in !
I think Vic then went to a Camoro funny car. I think he might of sold that funny camaro to Clarence Davenport?
HEY DINO…THE WHITE COMET A/FX (STOCK WHEELBASE THEN) WAS THE McCORMICK LINCOLN-MERCURY CAR…”JUST DOWN THE STREET” FROM YOUR FOLKS HOUSE (KATONAH) ON BEDFORD ROAD IN MT. KISCO NY….DON’T-CHA REMEMBER???…ONE OF MY (YOURS ?) BEST REAL BUDDIES….THE ORIGINAL “WILD WILFERD”…CANDID CAMARO…WILLIE HORMERTE…WORKED THERE “BACK IN THE DAY”…BEFORE THE AUTOMOBILE SHOP…AND HIS OWN STATION…I DIDN’T THINK ALAN DROVE THE A/FX CAR…ALWAYS THOUGHT BILLY LAGANA DROVE IT AND ALAN DROVE THE ’66 COMET C/S CAR… IN TIME THEY ALTERED THE WHEELBASE…ADDED THE INJECTORS…SOME FUEL AND ULTIMEATELY SORTA’ MADE IT A WHEELSTANDER…BILLY…LIKE BOBBY WAS “FEARLESS” &VERY ,VERY GOOD… AS DRIVER…AND VERY POPULAR…THEY BOOKED THE CAR A LOT….THEY WERE “BUSY ” TO SAY THE LEAST!!! OF COURSE IN TODAY’S BARRATT-JACKSON WORLD…THAT “BABY” WOULD BE WORTH NOT A LITTLE…BUT A LOT OF DOUGH.. IN IT’S ORIGINAL A/FX “STATE”…I BELIEVE THAT CAR WAS A ORIGINAL BILL STROPPE CAR COMMISIONED BY LINCOLN-MERCURY FOR A/FX COMPETITION…IF “MEMORY” SERVES ME (“GEEZERVILLE” IS IN PLACE) THEY ONLY BUILT AROUND 10 OR 12 OF THE COMETS…ALAN WENT ON TO BE A DEALER IN DUTCHESS COUNTY…I KNOW SOME YEARS AFTER THAT HE WAS A GM FOR GREER TOYOTA IN DUTCHESS…”BOSS GUY”-JACK KARL IS THE PARTS MANAGER FOR BROWNELL LINCOLN-MERCURY (FISHKILL)…JACK’S BEEN AROUND THIS STUFF SINCE “THE BEGINNING OF TIME”….HAS GOT MORE NUMBERS IN HIS HEAD THAN I’VE GOT HAIR..AND I STILL HAVE A LOT!!!
