All good but you missed one!

Taken at the Supercar Showdown at New England Dragway in 1994.

There were four 1968 1/2's there, Barrie, Jerry Dick, Dave Cataldi & me.

Barrie shared some tuning tips and let me borrow his air cleaner. I started out at about 13.1 and got down to a 12.62 by the end of the day.

Yes.
We arranged with the current owner to bring the car to the show and had also arranged to have Barrie attend but he had to cancel at the last minute due to an illness.

It would have been great to put the two back together....

Off topic, I know but after following the links in your first post, I couldn't help myself.

Barrie taught me most of what I know about racing .I still ask him when its time to try different things .
had many 428 CJ and SCJ cars over the last 30 years.I currently own a 68 1/2 coupe and a 69 R code SCJ Coupe and a 70 R code SCJ Cougar Eliminator .I am looking for a 70 428 coupe if anybody knows of one for sale.

The 68 1/2 when all red was driven by Barrie when it was striped then John was driving the car and Barrie had the 69 car . That car was the first 10 second Cobra Jet car and held that title for many years . Barrie said that car would hook up in a gravel pit .When it had the white only stripes it was owned by someone else and was wrecked as shown .
