My family is searching for a dragster that my Dad and his friend (Jim Fackeldey and Steve Krachum) built in 1965.
The dragster went through some changes and ultimately became 'Yipes Stripes'. We would appreciate if we could be able to locate this dragster. It has been a needle in the haystack for sure. It was run in several different tracks, Cordova, Neita Raceway, etc. Top Fuel. Jerry Saar heard of it and purchased it in 1967, there are pics on the web of when he had it. I have contacted Jerry and he doesn't know what happened to it.
We started a facebook page to help document our search, and there are some pics there.

I realize that much time has passed, but we cross our fingers that someone has it stuck in a garage somewhere....(one can always have hope, right?).

I apologize if I have posted this in the wrong area of the forum. Just hoping someone out there sees this and has our next lead.

I used to have a photo of it when Jerry owned it but a friend "borrowed" it for an event and I never got it back.

I posted the pic in a Quad Cities area racing group on Facebook. Best of luck finding a piece of history.
