Salut






























I started Drag Racing in 1969 with a 428 Cobra Jet Fairlane Cobra racing NHRA F/S. I first met Hubert Platt at the Springnationals in Dallas Texas and I started working for Hubert’s east coast Ford Drag Team at the US Nationals in 1969. I traveled with the Ford Drag Team for a couple of months helping at the race track, and during the week I would help with the performance clinics held at Ford dealerships in the east. Hubert offered to sell me his 1968 SS/FA Mustang and I bought it in November 1969. We towed it from Florida to the Winternationals in Pomona California in 1970 and I won class, beating a factory backed Hemi Mopar and a just completed factory backed Mustang. Later that year I set the NHRA national ET record for SS/FA at 11.59. I came back in 1971 and won SS/FA class at the Winternationals again. At a points meet I set the NHRA mph record at 120.64. July of 1971 I built a 1969 Mustang SS/GA from a body that I had bought from Hubert Platt in 1970. I set the MPH record at the World Finals in the fall, and in December won the Miami National Open with a winning time of 11.24 when the record was11.45. I went back to the Winternationals in 1972 and won SS/GA class. I lowered the SS/GA record to 11.26 in 1974 and I still have this car today.
