Bill Dee, were you involved in this fiasco ?
yep..the beginning of it...
after that pic I called Dale "Team Car" Al saw NO humor in it.
That was our first Mustang ll; the rebodied Bill Lawton Pinto that rolled across pension, Road E.Town(on the roof)
After the World Finals 74,Joe decided to stay in Ca,since the streets are lined with gold and all....
That car / rebuild was 1 race old. We all went to Epping's Sept. race,finnishing the thing in the staging lanes.
It went to World Finals and NEVER came home
We had been running my Pinto ,seen a few pics down in model box paint by Tom Nagy, identifiable by the big wheel bubbles and my trademark header deflector /paint saver, I still run today.
Joe got Dale to drive at a west coast match race.The newest Drag News scoop -Steve Plueger was building Dale a seat so he could return the LA phone book to where he stole it from.
Al was burning down the phone .All Joe said at the time was he needed to run the car to make a few bucks and Pulde was avail.The next thing it was listed entered in Pamona with dale as driver..
Me.."hey Al,this mean Joe won't be sending our plane tickets to go out there"??
We got my Pinto back to Lindblad for the 3rd turn around of 92 to 426 motor mounts,sold off everything I had to buy up some usable 426 parts.to get it ready for a return to Gainsville 75
Joe and Dale won Bakersfield with that car. It was later sold and the Monza built.I have no idea where this car went from there.It should be easy to identify with the Mini Ford Thunderbolt hood scoop wheel bubbles.
