   :th  outhousemouse and Batton  The 77 vega in the old picture  was bought from Speedy Rutherford by me in 1978 for $3500.00.   Lanny Bell  (Gary Bell's brother-BELL700)  wrecked his vega at Bristol running Gene Fulton ( the engine builder form S.C. ) Both cars were totaled.  Lanny was number one in IHRA comp eliminator, and Fulton was second.   Lanny & QR (his dad) needed a car .  I had blown my engine at GR's, we partnered up and chased the points and Won Competition Eliminator that year. The car held Two IHRA National Records.  It ran B/EA & C/EA  Quickest pass at 2310# with 305 engine was 6.423 not too shabby in 1978-9. Sold the car to Ed Robbins in Collierville TN. for $4500.00  to buy a monza.  The vega was a great car and the pictire was taken at the old Newport track .  Don't know where the car is now ?  Would like a copy of photo if possable thanks  JA   :th

I was there the day Lanny wrecked the Vega at Bristol. Dad and I did'nt know of the wreck untill we got to the end of the track to tow him back.Lanny was sitting down, smoking a cigarette when we got there. Fulton asked Lanny if he was going to pay for his car since they both wrecked. It was a long drive home.  Lanny broke a tie rod at the finish line causing them both to collide,
