there is a write-up on the "Bonanza" Chevy in this months issue of Hemmings Muscle Cars, giving a brief history of the car. Nice article.

There was a well-known (in the east) Bill Jenkins prepaired B/S 1965 Impala 409/400 owned by Jess Belton, Jr. Car ran in the mid 12s. Photo on page 156 in the book: SUPER STOCK-DRAG RACING the FAMILY SEDAN by Larry Davis.

I like the one with the blower; no hood and all the windows rolled down. Try that at your local track today.
