Denny Ford (if it's the same guy) is still around. He runs a '62 Biscayne 409 car now.

That car was raced by Mousie Brown. He's also still around and would probably know the other name on it.

I just spoke to Denny Ford. That Chevelle was his. He completed the car in '74 when he worked at Yenko. The car was originally a 300hp car that he stuffed with a 427. It wasn't until '78 that he painted it in that scheme.

He's currently running his '62 Biscayne in legal B/S and it goes 10.86. More than competitive!

Don’t know if anyone noticed, but the red Nova in post 1297-page 30 is Larry Lombardo. Yea, the same Larry Lombardo who won the World Championship winner/Jenkins driver.

Some cool pics from a small town track in Kimberley B.C. Canada from 1968. Credit to Greg Staples for the pictures. He was there with his buddy who had the 55 wagon.

There's a possibility that this car may actually still exist.
