These were featured shots of Al with the car in a Drag race magazine in 1971. Ive got the magazine.













Im sorry but that car was awsome looking. Not a magazine shot, this is from a promo photo shoot that never got out.

Chris (QUOTE)

Chris, My dad, Denny Russell, Joe Leamen, Mac Mccord, Glen Stephenson, had just finished the willys. They T&T ran the car and later were at a resturaunt having dinner. Peering out the window at the car on the trailer in primer. They were trying all day to come up with a name. One of the guys was eating a hard candy called Sour Grapes, and flipping it around in his hand. He jokingly said, thats it, Sour Grapes. My dad liked the idea and the threw the candy into the stands on the return road back after every pass.
Great idea, I love it! Thanks for the info

Denny, my other dad. He had some mild closterfobia. And sometimes would sit in the car for 30 minutes before making his pass feeling the controls and just clearing his mind.
