Al Joniec at the 1969 Winternationals
« on: June 10, 2014, 06:16:58 pm »
I received the attached picture from Joe Spinelli. Here's what he said:

"Hi Scott.

I attached a photo of the 1969 CJ that Al Joniec raced at Pomona. Coming off his 1968 win, Ford wanted to repeat the same for the following year.

In Al's words:

“Ford had brought me back in 1969 to defend my title at the NHRA Winternationals driving a 1969 428 Cobra-Jet Mustang, but I only saw that car for one race, and that was the end of that. It was very fast and I ran out of index and lost."

Al went back to New Jersey without the car. It was never seen again.

Joe Spinelli"

Does anyone know anything about the car?
