We are going to branch out some and there will also be a few from Pamona in here along with Indy, Muncie, Bunker Hill and U.S.30, and maybe a Lions or 4 or more.

The 2 pictures below were taken at Indy in 1967. Note the beard that Don is sporting. He vowed to never shave again until he ran in the 6 second bracket. Luckily a few minutes after these were taken he ran his pass, and shaved at the start line shortly after. Could you imagine how long that would be if he never ran in the 6's, hes to fast for that.

Blower pully on the tarmac, wrenches on the hat, we sure have come a long way since then.

My dads willys, pictured at left is Dave Anderson. He was a family friend, he was one of the best kid teasers I remember growing up. He later bought the willys from my dad for 6 grand, 392 hemi and all. I wish you could get the same deals today. My dad used the money to pay toward his 1st funny car.

He bought the Flying Dutchman 68/69 charger and ran it in 69-70 seasons. This has been debated before about the car, it has a 68 front end and a 69 back end, I guess thats maybe something you get when your getting some help from a manufacturer and the body idea is not set in stone. The other mystery is the dates that my dad had the car. His album I have specifically stated 1969 as the year he 1st ran it under its new name, Sour Grapes, he kept pretty good records.

Bar None my favorite Sour Grapes picture, track unknown. The car was so hated whereever he went. A lot of guys knew the car was deadly fast, it ran in a couple different classes depending on the fuel he used. They would wait at the gate and watch for the class he chose. Then they would sign up for an opposite class so they stood a chance.

Probably the wildest car made. This is th Flying Dutchman Charger 3. It was a concept car with the thought of competing with the corvette in mind. The car was very short lived. It was unstable at about the 200 mph mark. The car made limited appearances at a few tracks. Al Vanderwoude was the owner, my dad Tom Johannsen was the driver for Al at the time. Al and another driver also made a few passes in the car, so they could try and figure out how to tame the ill handleing car. It was never resolved and the body was removed and replaced with a Maverick body.

Al Vanderwoude

There are only a handfull of pictures of this car and even fewer under load. Enjoy because these are the cream of the crop for this rare car.

The car was so sleak, hard to believe it did not work out.
