Green Valley Raceway, Dallas International Motor Speedway, Bandimere. That's been a while. I've also seen 4-wide funny car racing - on a 2 lane track (Green Valley). They weren't even running current Pro Stock times back then but it was the wildest spectacle I'd ever seen at a drag strip at the time.

Avid funny car fan from 1969-present. Used to see all the famous cars at Niagara Dragstrip back in the day, but the Hustler was never there (that I know of). BUT... In a random visit to the "Skylon Tower" in Niagara Falls Ontario in the late 1970's I was blown away that the classic version..... https://www.nhra.com/sites/default/f...?itok=7Wh8sQ_Q .....of that car was on display there with the body propped up and engine/cockpit open for viewing! I was by myself and there was no one else around in the exhibition hall, so I climbed over the rope and SAT IN IT for just a few seconds! Ha ha!!! So... although I never saw it race, I SAT in it!! Sweeeeet!

Hmmm....saw the car a lot when it was touring on the East Coast. And also when I visited Bay Area. But probably last time was either Atco or Reading -maybe '78. I'm too old to remember that stuff. I do remember to take out the garbage every Wednesday.

Or is it Thursday?

Spotted this summer at a Show & Shine, in Beiseker AB.
Heard from a gentleman that the body was pulled from the same molds that the Grand Spaulding, and Chi Town Hustler came from.
