Tom S. Who is the current owner of the 1963 2 door wagon (one of a kind modified 4 door wagon) who was running that car??

Randy must have had well over 150K into that car and years ago and after Randy's passing I believe it sold for 85K.

I bought it from Tom Dancer from New Jersey last year and sold it to Mike Greene from A1 auto parts, who is the current owner. Jim Wade

Mike, I did see Butler's stuff on west side Saturday.
We didn't walk that far over when we looked around on that side Friday.
(not much time, brother was racing)

Neither the KRE guys or the Butlers ran their personal race cars at the event this year. The KRE tent had covered parking and I assume technical help and service for their top customers cars. I did not see a serious oil down from any race car on Friday or Saturday. I headed home around 5:00 PM Saturday so I didn't see probably 30-40% of the racing that happened Sat. night and Sunday. I was impressed with the small number of on-track problems I saw this year. The crew at Norwalk seemed to do a good job staying on top of the racing surface, dragging and spraying after each large group of street tire cars finished their runs.

The place is packed to the gills. No video, though.

The 'banned' PY member ran a breakout 7.9x in Gambler's race.

Kauffman's has a large display of many parts.
(didn't see Butler or AP there?)

Some stuff:
John- FYI the KRE billet block shown and labeled in your pic has cam in stock location, You have it labeled as a raised cam- it is not. BTY nice to see you

Great weather, safe racing, big swap meet and car show.
Arnie is here, doing well, holding court 😎
Jeff Kauffman didn't bring his car and Steve Dale didn't make it so we get to keep our 250 record a bit longer.

I had wondered on AP as well as I did not see them. strange. Also, sorry I did not get to see you while there this time.

Always appreciate ur kind post... however, I'm not so kind.. I'm surprised KRE or thier customers didn't oil down the track..
I may have to get back in the game just to let them know they suck as engine builders... they are good as parts copiers...just look around... anything that works, they copy... in my opinion of course...

lololol !! now I sense a bit of resentment...
is there any videos up of the event other than the 2 on youtube now ?
I'd like to see the drag races. the vintage race cars in the show area were awesome in the 2 vids I watched.
no vids up of Arnie's Beswick's cars.

yes...I noticed the video uploads on youtube were not what they used to be. too bad. in some ways biggest show ever, with the most minimum coverage. and people going home a day early ? what's up with that.

I was talking to the guy from I think Georgia, that bought Arnies 63 Catalina. I asked him did Bill Blair sell the Tempest he said ,yes. Next years Norwalk Pete Woodruff wants all the original 63 SD cars remaining to be there as a 50th anniversary.

Sorry I missed you as well, Steve. I need to do a better job of tracking who will be there next year. Always enjoy talking Pontiacs with you.

No one mentioned Cygan’s 6.43 @187 pass Friday in the frantic 4 qualifying. He had to let out of it at about 1000’ mark. He was doing 187 in the 1/8. I talked to him briefly he was unfortunately fighting some electrical issue and couldn’t get it sorted out. If I recall last year he MPH 235+.
