That old yellowish multicolored coupe at Milan with the white headers over the roof is Joe Liberty's car with "Pappy" Perkins driving.

Cool pics, thanks for sharing! Have never seen a Corvair funny car before. Gotta love the wild '70's paint jobs!

Kev. Remember the old Clutchflite's ?
Oh, yea. They were actually pretty durable but we didn't have a ton of power back then. On the guys racecar I helped with he used the push button shift, pretty cool. '51 Henry J with a Cammer Ford. Ran in the Gas classes until NHRA quit the class and then switched to Competition Eliminator B/Altered then A/Altered.

2nd picture is Rick Tope, a friend of the family... I was lucky enough to sit in it when it was warming up a few times. Rick is still around and a great guy, always welcomed my brother and me. He is the reason I have the passion for cars that I do.
