No one gets to anywhere all by themselves, there are always people who have influenced
them. This is no different. This is the story of some of the people who have
influenced Ken Lowe.
Thanks to all of you.
This is under construction and will frequently be updated.
Danny McCord and I were
shadows of each other when we were kids, not that we were physically alike but that where
you saw one of us there was the other one. We each had paper routes to earn money and when
one of us could not "do his route" the other one did. Danny has had lots of cars
(most of them still in his barn behind his house). Here are some of the photos. The red
325hp 396 67 Chevelle is still in his barn. Yea, go ahead and ask him if he wants to sell
it. You would have a better chance of getting the truth out of Bill Clinton than buying
the Chevell from Danny.
Danny, Dallas Hall and myself all had 55 Chevys. Mine was white with 283, Dannys had a
327 and was pretty quick and Dallas's was green with black primer spots. The new movie at
the time was The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. So that is what we named our cars.
Danny had a dragster for a while as well, that is him setting in the seat looking for his
belts. Don Woosley is leaning on the roll cage and that is me standing there with the long
hair and the hose over my shoulder. Frank Johnson is on the left holding the helmit. I
would have to guess the date is 1971. That was Doug Lawrence's trailer in the background.
If anyone knows anyone else in the photo please email me and I will add you to the list.
Danny now has a 41 Willys hot rod as a street car. When I saw it last it was still in
pieces. Dougie Johnson (Franks son) has promised me photo's. When I get them I will post
them to the site.
Bob Wilson introduced me to the
internet. Not that I did not know what it was, but that even I could "have a
go". Bob carried a lot of my stuff on his site for a long time and I want to thank
him for that as it gave me a toe hold to the world. If anyone wants to have a look at
Bob's site today it is click here. Based in
Vancouver Bob leaves his TAD car at our shop here in Queensland Australia so he can be one
of the few international drag racers. In Top Alcohol we do not race as much as the
Americans but the quality is very good. Our "numbers" are never as good as the
Americans but that is because dragsters run a very restrictive overdrive to slow them down
to match the alcohol funny cars. That is probably not a bad thing as it helps keep the
cost of racing down because it does not stress the parts as much. Here in Oz it is still
like Pro Comp was when it was first invented in 1974 where the dragsters race the funny
cars. Some Australian racers have shipped their gear to the US to race and the results
speak for themselves. On his first trip to Oz Bob was going around visiting all the
race tracks and all of the suppliers in his plan for his international racing tour. The
first afternoon he stopped by the shop we talked until the little hours of the morning.
What a great guy.
"Quick" Rick Clark - Quick Rick and his dad had the machine shop where I used to
stop and visit every day on the way into work at International Harverster in 1969 -1973.
You meet the strangest people running the staging lanes at the 1974 US Nationals. In 1966
Ronnie Bales was the person who let me drive his very fast altered and set in motion most
of the events for the rest of my life. Here I had just pushed to the front of the staging
lanes in my B/FD (with my new Aussie helpers) when who should I meet - A. Ronald Bales. I
won't tell you what the A stood for as I don't think he liked it very much. This is the
last time that I saw him. Ronnie, if you see this email me and let me know what you are
doing. Oh yes and by the way did I ever say "Thanks" for changing my life? If
you look in the background you will see the Hurst bridge that goes over the track.
