I always liked the Mustang. If anyone wants to see it, it is on the first page of Hot Rod Shack. It still looks good, even if it does have a ford engine now. It is still one of my favorite cars to come out of Altus and on of the fastest. I remember Kyle wrecking the Camaro, I think it was at the corner of Veterans and Broadway. I dont think Larry has done anything to the Nova that raced that night. He also has the Nova that Joey Click had. Jimmy Wright bought it from Joey, pulled the BB TH400 out and put in a 350 and glide. He wasnt happy with the way it ran, ended up trading it to Robby Hays, who then sold it to Larry. So now Larry has 2 green Novas.

I assume we are talking about Larry Bornholdt. I believe he has three Novas! The nice one in storage and the two in his driveway. I bet the one he raced all those years ago is the one in the front of his drive. I think Larry still has the fat tired Camaro also. Does anyone remember the Camaro Darryl Schenk (Smith) had? He hung out a Kae Myers Mazda alot. It was white originally and later he painted it grey. I can remember Michael Maahs saying something about that car running in the nines- 1/8 mile! So slow nowadays.  Speaking of Michael Maahs I bet someone can remember the old Camaro that he built and fat tired himself. I don't know if it was all that fast but it sure looked cool! I can remember Neil Blackwell in high school working for Jeff at D&J speed Equipment. He had an old pickup that was supposedly fast but I never saw it run. Git downs maybe you can tell us if the chevyII that Freddie had was as fast as it was rumored to be? I wonder if the Maahs Bros. still have the yellow Dodge Darts they use to race?

The Chevy II was very fast it its day. It had small bias ply tires and was very hard to beat. I was in Calif. and I know he had a blast with it. I dont remember the Camaro of Darrels, but remember him having an El Camino. In the late 70's we hung out at a gas station on the corner of Falcon and Main. Late at night there were alway hot rods around there. A spanish fellow worked there, I think his name was Joe, he had a Camaro. Jimmy Wright had his early Nova, Jerry had a 67 Z28, Kyle Watson had the Camaro, Clay Thompson had a Corvette,  there were other cars too, another spanish guy from Martha had 66-67 SS Chevelle. The Maahs Bros do still have the Darts. Mike built the Camaro as a show car, won lots of awards with it, I remember seeing a picture of it in Super Chevy magazine, when the had Super Chevy shows at Thunder Valley. Larry at J&N had a white Camaro that ended up with its picture in the mag also.

I didnt know they painted one of them red. Marks was a SB powered Dart that started out green, like the one I have. Mike is poered by 383, not sure what it was originally, last time I saw them they were both yellow, but that was many years ago. When will me Dart be going? I dont know. As far as street car goes, real soon. Thought about being ready for Vernon, but not enough time off from work for that, besides it is too hot this time of year. Look for me around the end of Sept. Still waiting for tittle for the Camaro. Dont want to do anything till I get it in my hands. I was checking to see if any of the Ford boys could read  Grin when I made that remark about the Ford engine, lol.  Wink

Hey Floyd     Fords are great for haulin' Chevy race cars!  You know I've seen ford cars with chevy engines but no chevy cars with ford engines! In all reality there was a guy over at Frederick that won alot of races with a blue oval! What about the Fairlane? Goin' to the track this year?    Monte
