Some of those guys got into F/C classes later on. Kind of a natural progression, I think. Gary Densham ran AA/Street Roadster, which was AA/GS w/ a T body. I think he would put a little pop in the tank and run with the AA/FA once in awhile.

Saw Ken Dondero work the 4-speed in Panella's car to win Comp at Pomona, let the youngin's bang a supercharged Anglia today. They would have lot's of fun.

Watching Korney's Goldfinger at Lions, up close, under the lights on a Saturday night was so cool.

Steve Bilbey, Gary Burgin ,also had supercharged roadsters Cliff. They were a handful.

Not a race car; but my Dad had a sweet pro street ‘48 van; blown 350, coil overs, Mustang II front end, tubbed, tinned, Yada yada yada. He ran it one time to about 60 foot at the Texas Motorplex Ford weekend meet once. 10 feet after the green bulbs that thing turned so hard to the left pointed right into the wall, it scared the crap out of him and he sold it at that car show the next day LOL. Those are drivers’ cars for sure. This one was definitely not set up right; but I’ve heard they’re all a handful.

There is an Anglia group that runs in Santa Pod in UK. They call the cars "Pops". You can see videos of them on U Tube & they are a handful!
