it sadens me about what happened to this car. these mid 60`s b- bodies are what i consider the infant stages of the funny cars. i grew up with these beauties, they were everywhere back then. right now i`m messing with two a-bodies and hope to one day move on with one or maybe two of these great looking cars. that sure was a beauty you had there. good luck

John,

How's "THE BAD FURY" coming, any more progress since we talked a few weeks ago? Keep us informed how the construction and build is moving forward.

Take care old friend, see you this fall.

About

This is my pride and joy. I have owned it since 1985, and have raced it almost that whole time. I Run the car in Super/Pro. My best time was 9.74 in Topeka Kansas. It ran 10.30s at Bandimere Speedway.I run the Bad Machine at Bandimere Speedway And Pueblo Motor sports park. in Colorado.
On April 28th of this year I had a very unfornate Accident. A Milidon external oil pump gasket to the external line failed on a run. At the top end of the track.Oil dumped under my slick. The car turned hard right hit the wall rolled then hit the other wall than fliped back on its wheels.The cars body is a total loss, The drive train was good. I was very lucky and walked away. I was beat up but no broken bones. This is The worst thing that could happen to a Drag racer,and it happened to me. The Belvedere will be missed.
I am planing to build a 1964 Fury. I will post pictures as the car is put together. Most of the parts will interchange so the heart of the Belvedere will live.
