Default Ford drag team

Anyone remember the FORD DRAG TEAM days? When Dick brannon,DADDY WARBUCKS Phil Bonner,Ed Martin and Bob Glidden in the 60s and then late 60s early 70s in Pro Stock with the GEORGIA SHAKER Hubert Platt and Ed Terry with Dick Loehr and Al BATCAR Joniec? Do you have any memories of the Ford Supercar Clinics they used to have? Do you have any class pics post em up! Thanks

I remember it well since I was honored to have traveled with Hubert for a couple of months after Indy 1969 and was there for the Super Stock photo shoot.

I helped unload the parts display boards and rolled them into the dealerships. I remember Randy Payne saying if they had a traction problem with the Torino he would just slide the seat back.

Up until last year I had an original Drag Team brochure that came with a patch and a membership card. It opened up and had pics of the rigs and a membership application. I had that and some other lightweight and Ford performance catalogs for over thirty years. Someone made me an offer I couldn't refuse and I let them go. Yep, I'm a knucklehead!

There was an excellent book released recently. Full of rare pictures.

I actually have it but haven't read it yet.
