Ever make it to the finals in 2 different cars,
in 2 different classes,on the same day? 
I did,these two cars are part of the reason why
This '69 Plymouth GTX (the "GREAT PUMPKIN")was 
originally bought by my dad in 1970 for $1500.00 from King
Solomon Motors in Morristown.It was ordered by a 
woman(!)w/h a 440,4 speed,dana 3.54 rear & was dark green
in color w/h a white vinyl top (see photo below)and dad added
the chrome "moon"wheels,Yes,he street raced it! It 
remained a daily driver until 1984 when i had graduated from
NASHVILLE AUTO DIESEL COLLEGE and decided i 
wanted to go drag racing.Fortunately i had the most 
understanding & supportive parents in the world and they
backed me 100%.The rest they say is history.This car has
won many,many bracket races,helped me to be the last 
person to ever be the pro class champion w/hout a delay box
at Cherokee Raceway Park(1990)& I even drove it on the 
street some;incl.the Rodruns at Pigeon Forge(pictured here)
This is how the GTX looked all those years my dad drove it.
This photo was taken Feb.26,1984.Changed a little hasn't it?
The "Cuda":This'74 Plymouth Barracuda,originally a 318 car 
was purchased in April of 1985 from Morgans Repair Shop in 
Morristown for $550.00.The 440 in it now was in pieces,one 
head,the"six pack" 3x2 bbl carb setup & brand new headers 
were in the backseat & trunk.The car wore only a greasy hand 
printed coat of primer & the grill was inside the car.My 
dad,Mark Bishop & myself towed this great "prize" to Mark's 
garage because my mom had said rather firmly "NO MORE 
CARS"but she came around,as a matter of fact my mom bought
the first set of slicks for this car(but THAT'S another story!!!)
It ran 8 teens in the 1/8th mile w/h a stock 440 6 pack & a 4.88
gear(see DYNO PAGE for up to date info).The photo below was
taken at the Mopar Muscle Southern Classic in 1994 when i won
stock big block class(see photo on the About Us page) & runner
up'd in the Mopars vs. the world bracket race that same night.
This is how the cuda looked after it's 
first good primer job in 1985.
This is me receiving my $350 & a years free entry for being the 
1990 Pro class champion(I was the last one to ever win it w/h a 
foot brake car).In the "old days" there were no trophies or 
plaques given out (I had to have one made myself),no cerimonies
(just walk to the starting line & get your envelope) & no fancy 
banquets(notice my "tuxedo").
This is the 383 engine that went into the GTX shortly after 
this picture was taken in April of 1986
