Stewart, had to go way back to find your post but here it is. Ours was a BO29 car. Mark J. has photos of the dash and VIN and is tracing the history. The car had a '69 nosepiece, which makes me wonder if it was the car that Sox and Martin ran as a '69 in A/Modified. Billy Jacobs told us when we bought the car that it was an ex-Sox and Martin car, but you had to know Billy, he was a real salesman! Anthony Rhodes and Stephen Yantus have it now.

Thanks,
Terry

Ed Hedrick called me this morning and informed me that Bill Stiles passed away last night. This info came from Bill's son. Sorry to hear as he was a good friend and hard racer. He will be greatly missed.

Man, what a bummer. I never had the pleasure of seeing Bill race but did read and interact with him and vice versa via the many posts he and I made along with many others [in regards to photos posted] in a Yahoo! StockSuperStock drag racing group I used to frequent regularly back in the mid-2000's era.

I did see Bill's car at the 25th anniversary A-Body Hemi reunion in Carlisle [on Saturday] but didn't have the pleasure of meeting him in person because he a) wasn't present on Saturday or b) was elsewhere on the grounds at Carlisle.

RIP big man. But how can Bill do that with all those greats in drag racing heaven and first round of eliminations has just been called?

Pete

Aw man, just heard this too. RIP Mr. Stiles, I was hoping he would come to the reunion in Carlisle.We also lost Clark Rand today, he owned and showed the 68 S&M Barracuda and had the S&M ramp truck clone. He always made sure that people could see the cars he owned and when he could would get the drivers out with their old cars. He was quite the gentleman and will be sorely missed, RIP Mr. Rand!

As far as I can tell, the car that we purchased from Billy Jacobs was once the "Drag Hag" car of Harold Dutton. Anyone have any idea who owned it before Billy? I have the VIN number, but out of respect to the current owners, I don't want to make it public.
