This is my dad's first race car with Henry Harrison driving and Henry's nephew Terry helping out.

In the staging lanes, don't know the track,
with Henry in the fire suit to the left and at the right is my dad and Terry Harrison.
Do not know who the others are.

Rear shot at Lions, check out all the spectators in the stands.

Another staging lane shot.


First "Beaver Hunter" driven first by Don Hicks then Tom Oliveras and finally Henry Harrison. The car was built and funded by my dad and Joe Thomas, hence Thomas/Pritchard. Paint, lettering and the name of the car by Big Daddy Ed Roth.

These pic's are from a race at Fremont raceway and my dad remembers that they lost to Pure Hell in the final. My dad got these pic's from someone at the fuel altered reunion at Pomona. I will try to get the guy's name.

 

 

 

Joe T. on the left and my dad on the right, Henry in the hot seat.


 

This is John Force driving here. My brother took the picture by Force's shop a few years ago and chatted a while and got the autograph you see.

This car was bought from Stan Lucas (old Outlaw car of Lee LaBaron). Stan continued to drive the car until it crashed at the 74' nationals at Tucson. Thats Joe Thomas off to the side.
