Slaughter:





I remember Rick Seeman posting that he had this car at one time but thought Tommy Slaughter had got it from some guy in Tulsa AND that he thought it was still sitting in a garage somewhere. I guess my question is, does anyone have the VIN for the Gator Raider (That I am looking for more pictures of) and could this be it or one of the still lost LO23's? This trail would put it in Louisiana-Oklahoma-Arkansas area. Possible?

The question was (page 309/post#2083) if anyone had a picture of the Gator Raider. Hemi Moose answer is above the picture.


So....If the red/white Dart in the background IS the Gator Raider, could the Slaughter Dart be it? If not the Gator Raider....where did the Slaughter car come from? Always looking for one of the "lost ones".


Side note: Draglist has a note that the Dennis Oncale "Gator Raider" was a former Vanke car. Did Akron Arlen ever have a LO23 Dart????


Rick Seeman...Where do you think this car is hiding?

Do a comparison of the Butt Stripe on Arlen's versus The Gator Raider

Good man!

So now the question/questions could be, is this the (pre)Gator Raider as noted on Draglist?


Is this the red/white car in the staging lane picture at Southland Dragway?


Is this the same red/white Dart as the one I found pictures of and is that one really the Slaughter car?


Is that before or after Tommy Slaughter owned then sold it to Rick Seeman?


Where is it now?


Time to send Rick a PM.


Found an old post with Rick's member logo. Sent him a PM
