I'm curious if you or anybody else reading this can name the other 20. I sat down and listed as follows: Sox & Martin, Don Grotheer, Arlen Vanke, Bill Stiles, Ed Miller, Chuck Ostrich, Nelson Stoltz, John Hagen, Harold Dutton, Dick Landy, Bill Flynn, Larry Cooper, Mary Ann Foss, Bob Ramstrom and Paul Richardson's cars.

First off. Welcome here.
Unfotunately Paul left us suddenly a couple years ago. He is really missed here.

I like where your going with this. I'm thinking Paul prolly could of pulled every name outta his massive memory he had for this kind of information
Mopar68 do you still have all your old paperback ETown stuff?

Thank you for your reply, Liteweight. Very sorry to hear about Paul. Clearly, he had a wealth of knowledge and he will be missed by me as well, even though I never met him. As a builder of 1/25th scale drag car models, I've benefited from many of the things that have been shared here. I place a high value on historical accuracy of my models, but since I was only 14 in 1968, I need the help of those who lived it. I've accumulated stacks of car magazines from the glory days of drag racing, and I've narrowed my focus to the Super Stock Mopars that invaded E-Town in June of 68. Paul had said that 35 B029's and L029's showed up for the Springnationals, making 20 more than I knew about. I have the magazine articles on the subject and I think the Sept 68 article in SS&DI was the best. For anybody who's interested, Bee On Video sells a DVD of the Springnationals from 65 thru 68. Considering that it's a gleaning of very old film from amateur photographers, it's excellent. The 68 Springnationals articles I have, are from Car Craft [9/68], Hot Rod [9/68], Popular Hot Rodding [9/68], SS&DI [9/68], Drag Strip [11/68], Rodder & Super Stock [11/68] and American Rodding [12/68]. I wonder if I missed any. I'm hoping someone can help me find some other puzzle pieces. Thank you for welcoming me, and hopefully I can offer something worthwhile to this group.
