I remember many of them. Al Bowes always ran strong, Lovallo was on top of game. I co-held a couple of records with Dick Moroso. Covettes were in abundance back in the 60s at Dover. NHRA finals in Las Vegas yesterday almost had the son of one of Dover's legends winning top fuel. Bobby Lagana's son Dom made it to the finals against Schuamcer. In nearly 50 years Bobby has never given up and always runs on a shoestring. At Dover he was always popular and always hard to beat. His first wife's sister married one of my best friend . We often got together after the races for a "few rounds". Lots of fun and good memories.
Maybe that homemade straight axle was welded in and aligned "by eyeball".
Probably as good as the roll-bar ! Every time down the track it would jump nearly sideways back and forth going down the track. It covered about 1/3 mile instead of 1/4. It not only was wicked handling, but pretty slow too.
