That is a cool photo of the Greek & the dragster. Have seen it "somewhere". Maybe some of those guys were drivers?? I wonder if that was the 204 MPH car, the one that ran 204 in Alton Il in 1960. maybe on hydrazine.

I had Greek and his crew identify these guys at Joliet Route 66 Raceway about 10 years ago.
#1 Bobby Vodnick
#2 Rod Stuckey
#3 Marylin (but nobody could remember her last name)
#4 Larry Lones
Unnumbered - Greek (of course)
#5 Jack McGilligate
#6 Richie Felts
# 7 (everybody drew a blank) (may have been a local)

This was the 204 car at Alton, perhaps after the infamous run since there are so many including locals surrounding the car....
#1 Larry Lones
#2 John Krandeburg
#3 Don Maynard
Kids head above #4 Ron Leek
#4 (everybody drew a blank)
#5 (everybody drew a blank)
#6 Richie Felts
#7 Jack McGilligate
#8 (probably a local kid)
#9 Don Madison

All of the vintage Greek photos came from the Storey family collection, owners of Alton Dragway. I met John Storey's stepson Mike about 25 years ago and he allowed me to scan a bunch of original 8x10s from a big old box and I saved them as JPEGs and gave him a set and the originals back. Since then, I have lost a lot of my scans due to not enough backup space and loosing a hard drive about 5 years ago. Lesson here, BUY A BIGAZZ EXTERNAL DRIVE!

And get a cloud account! The rules for backup are, you have to save your files in 3 places, local computer (your daily driver), a NAS or burn to a CD, a DVD, USB drive AND the cloud. You never know when you might loose the other backups.

Agreed! A couple computer crashes later, and the only remaining image I have of me and Dick LaHaie is the one in my avatar.
