Need Help with Problem Child
« on: June 12, 2017, 11:23:01 am »
Hello everyone, I need all the old timers help. Does anyone know this car? This picture is from the 1971 – 1973 years. It was raced at New England Dragway.

It’s been pointed out to me that my posting looks like I’m in search of this car. I’ve had this car since 1990 and need history info on it. I found this one picture about two weeks ago. So now I have an old picture “as raced” to post and hope that someone may remember the car and maybe who raced it at New England Dragway or other area strips. Thanks, Jim.

Jim,
Good luck in your search for info on your old drag car.  I'll bet I looked at 200,000 pics on the net before I came up with the one I've posted below of my old drag car and I never remember seeing your car.  I was lucky with mine and have talked numerous times with the original owner who repeatedly promised me a treasure trove of pictures and memorabilia but never came through with a thing so finding the original owner may prove to be a disappointment given the age he must be now.

I ran into a guy on a Corvette forum a year or so back who had a 70 CJ Coupe. Definitely a rare bird you have there especially being an SCJ.  Good luck!!

I feel your pain of looking at old drag car photos. The first 50,000 pictures it’s cool. Then it starts to get painful. I thought how hard is it to find a photo of a 1970 white hardtop Mustang with a shaker? Thanks John for the web sites, I guess I’ll have to open a facebook account……. Thanks, Jim.

Took a second and tried on the strip pages I had joined to get photos of my car from 1967.

Since you will be new to facebook (and searches) I can offer some help to save you time.  My suggestion will be to "join" (request permission to see photos) of specific tracks CLOSE to NH.    IF you can find "vintage" and or a PERSON that hosts a page with old photos that will be best.    I tried Lebonon Valley in NY (only becasue I too was looking for a car).

Once on the page, click on PHOTOS on the left menu.   This will allow you to see them 12 at at time (not by single posts).   You can search within Facebook.............but that will only give hits IF TAGED with mega data "70 Mustang" of PROBLEM CHILD.

The same goes for Google search (I tried there too with no luck).   You can eliminate all the unwanted images via filter KIND OF LIKE searching Ebay and eliminating all the FITS 1970 Mustang junk.   Just use 1970+Mustang+Drag+Car.   

Mark
P.S.  With ebay you don't + info you - it !!   Like 1970 428SCJ -(fits:)
