Not so sure I'll be taking oart in the track walk at Indy but I do know for sure I'll be making at east the $20 donation! I just wish I had deep enough pockets to bid on the Garlits car at the Barrett Jackson auction.

wow, those cars look great... that last pic of Garlits' monostrut looks amazing, these are no inexpensive replicas that's for sure... i bet every Jr Dragster racer is drooling over these...

that's gonna be so cool to see darryl and big daddy staging those cars... i bet even the toughest baddest biggest guys in the stands will get all teary eyed watchin that...

a great cause, great guys, just great all around... thanks paul for the pics!

The cars are from 1986..... Garlits never raced Gwynn in a Coors car.

I think the last time Swamp Rat 30 and Gwynn (in that maroon car) ran each other, Garlits went over backwards...

I think you are correct. Darrell was in the other lane, On a very good pass if memory serves, when Big had the blowover...

It's either "The Wolf" or Conrad in the other lane...

Garlits never had a Super Shops Monostrut. And no, it's not the Extra Gold car.

Here is what I am interested in.....

The cost....If it's reasonable enough, we may be seeing more of these.

The times they card.....

And a competative no holds barred matchups between Garlits and Gwynn..........
