Bruce Larson's drag cars

As requested, here are very recent photos of Bruce Larson's Corvette Funny Car and the Tommy Ivo/Honest Charley dragster that he is restoring. Notice the Vette's engine has dual magnetos but one plug per cylinder. Bruce said this is a rare setup. The Ivo dragster is awaiting a couple of parts for the front that are in the paint shop. post-9531-0-28599000-1335262805_thumb.jppost-9531-0-14767400-1335262921_thumb.jppost-9531-0-25611200-1335263090_thumb.jppost-9531-0-47378200-1335263497_thumb.jppost-9531-0-38699400-1335263527_thumb.jppost-9531-0-02450800-1335263554_thumb.jppost-9531-0-48814500-1335263583_thumb.jppost-9531-0-40737400-1335263608_thumb.jp

Hey guys, my pleasure. I feel somewhat obligated to feed you guys reference pics since I can't build the way you do. You guys share a lot of info and photos with us, this is how I can pay you back. I hope to return to his place next weekend to take more. Some guys have asked for certain shots of the USA-1 Camaro and asked questions about driver's controls that I'll have to ask Bruce about. It's a tough job but somebody's gotta do it. Ha.

I got to spend over three hours at Bruce's place today, taking more pics, helping him fix a prototype model that he had built years ago, AND he asked me to help him push the Ivo dragster into the trailer. Then he drove the trailer around back where there is more room for the moving van to load it next week. We then unloaded it and he started it up !! It was awesome. When I get the photos off my camera, I will post them.

Great coverage, Dave. These photos and those you shared previously are invaluable for the information they give everybody. We can't all be there to see these cars up close and personal. Unless you buy us tickets so we can help you with the pain of doing it all.

Thanks again, Dave.

If you go to the Mecum Auction website you can read a history of this dragster and see some great shots of it.
