Welcome!



This site is dedicated to FLASHBACK our 1965 Plymouth Belvedere II altered wheelbase 426 Hemi car.  It was conceived, designed, and built as a tribute to the awesome factory A/FX cars that thundered down the dragways in the mid 1960's making history as the first "Funny Cars".

John Grinwald's  Gold Digger Match Race Photos!








Gold Digger makes it’s match racing debut at Cordova Raceway on October 12th, 2013. My opponent was the Arnie the Farmer Beswick 1966 Pontiac owned and driven by John Holms. It is an injected and blown alcohol Pontiac with a major engine set back. John sits waaaay back in the car. (you can see his helmet by the rear window on our side by side picture in the scan) This Pontiac is a piece of history as Arnie himself raced this car back in the day.  The Beswick funny car was too much for me that day as John Holms and his car won 2 out of 3 in the match race. I won 1 on a double red light as I left after he took off. He was so early his time did not register. (time slip in the scan)  The Beswick car ran a best of 8.65 to my best of 8.70. I would like another crack at him.   Thanks to all that helped on this two year project. I’m excited to get the car out next year and hope you can come and watch.


Best Regards to all,

John

Attention AFXers

 
After much deliberation and some encouragement, we are expanding the scope of this web site to serve as a meeting place for like-minded AWB, AFX, S/S, 60's drag racers and show cars from the mid-atlantic and north east US.  There are a bunch of us who are doing our own thing (and loving it!), but would also like to see who else is out there.   By knowing each other we can set up match races, demonstrations, events, and shows to celebrate our place in the glory days of drag racing and to bring that extitement to new fans.
