    Drake,
    Where did your ’64-’65 Falcon come from? Did you build it from a street car or was it always a race car?

    Thanks

    Does it look the same now as it did then? I’m from MD. and go to Ford’s at Carlisle every year but don’t recall it. Where did the original car come from? Did you build it from a street car, wreck etc. or was it a race car prior to you getting it? What time frame did you run the car? I’m going to keep an eye out for it here in MD. Any idea what part of the state it is in?

    Thanks

    Here’s what Mike(Guy Doing Falcon) Said !:

    Dino…I visited your site and enjoyed it for a couple of hours…nothing like old drag strips to keep one’s attention…I grew up around York and Cecil County with an occasional visit to 75-80…great memories of my youth….
    …you can see the old Vindicator at: http://ssamx.com/afx_falcon.htm …I have most of the stuff to finish it…just can’t seem to get it done…I will be running a 2×4 high riser in it when it is finished as it was raced early on….as you can see most of your artwork is still with the car…including the trunk lid. I have plans to keep the old tattered paint the way it is…tell Drake the next time you see him that I said hello…Mike

    Hey Drakester, that sounds like a capitol idea! Get that Falcon back and put a 514 in it. Show your boys how to do it “old School”. I’m sure Tommy would be happy to paint it! The Sox and Martin car sounds nice also. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Jack
