1966 through 1971 were the greatest years for Drag Racing in my opinion. There was an explosion of technology and parts development during that time. These photos are priceless and I know the memories are too.

My dad worked in a dealership in Belton MO. I took this picture because I liked the monzas a lot.

Fred Hurst had the cleanest car on the track. Just about every bolt and anything metal, was either polished or chrome.



SEE I TOLD YOU !

This is when my dad bought the Flying Dutchman Charger in 69. This was taken at his Citgo service station. My Grandma seen in the back ground, I am sure rolling her eyes and not very happy about his fine purchase. He soon after stripped the paint and repainted it flying his flag, Sour Grapes.



Again out front



It gets kinda graphic from here, what a beautiful car. If this car would have been saved and untouched it would have been worth a small fortune. Who Knew.? His station was on Purdue Campus. A lot of students would stop by and help him a lot. My dad with the smoke hanging out of his chops.







Here is me 8 years old and loving every second behind the wheel. I sat there every chance I got in all his cars.
