This is Jessie Holmes, Pensacola.
I'm working on FE shirts for FE Fall Nats Oct 19-20.
I would like to put the names, time & mph of the fastest 20
FE's in the country at this time.
My first 2 are Paul Adams & D. W. Hopkins.
I need verbal or e:mail info from the car owners,
I can't put their info on a 2012 shirt without their
If you feel you are ? or know someone that may be interested
please e:mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org ref: FE
call me at 1-850-206-FORD (3673) leave detail message.
If you want to post here, that is OK also.
I have contacted the owner of FE Forum and got the OK to
post info about the FE Nats on this site.
More info coming.
Thank You, Jessie
Names, car class NHRA, IHRA, NSS, time & mph.
FE powered only.............
Jody, thanks...good #'s
I've seen your car on several of Jim Amos's
Bee on Video's....he really has some great
shots of that rocket launching and turning some
Beautiful car...you are third on my list so far.
You are very correct,
I called Paul today and asked him,
They where the first on list..
I am making a list of fastest 20 at this time..
No secrets and will post to anyone that wants to see.
I will be working on this till the time for the shirts
to be screened, that is Oct 1st.
Thanks FE Friends, Jessie
Ray Paquet's SS/B T-Bolt , been 9.0's not sure if he's cracked into the 8's with a pretty out of date chassis compared to Adams , another one of the "super nice guy's" at the swap meets , enjoyed his company too like Paul's
Guys have already mentioned Paquet - - he's been eights.
I know Blair has a couple eight second guys running his stuff.
The 422 crew has a fast car or two in their stable.
Bud C is low nines & better
Don't forget the Cammers - Kurt Neighbor, Jay Brown.
Old school blower & nitro stuff allowed?
NHRA Super Pro 78 Mustang, all-aluminum 527 FE, Lenco 4-speed. Should run quicker this September 7-9 @ Mission (15' above sea level) Mega Ford Weekend. He hasn't had a "perfect run" yet so there is definitely more in it.
This is a pretty cool idea! Looking forward to seeing the shirts (and the list). Maybe post this in the photo section so it will stay up longer? It would be neat to have some "tech info" on the cars that make the list as well.
68 Cougar XR7 street and strip car, 428 4-speed, 3560# of fun, best email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org 1.43 60 ft

Hey, sounds like a cool shirt, but your question is very broad
My reply is that the 20 'fastest' FE's means MPH
The fastest and quickest FE's ever were driven by Prudhomme,who I saw 2 weekends ago at oour Lion's Reunion cackle fest, with McEwen,and Kaliita's cars, sneaky Pete Robinsons cars and all of the rest.
The top 20 are Cammers on Nitro,which I have enjoyed kicking around here a while back. What an awesome thing to see, hear and feel.
These guys license their name, likeness and image so they sell their own merchandise. If you put their names on a list, from the record books, there is the NHRA, AHRA distinction. As many guys recall, the AHRA records were usually below the NHRA records during that era.
I keep one of my favorite pictures on an FE on a wall in my dining room, where other memorobilia hangs. It is the old Hot Rod magazine cover of the Snake doing a burnout in his awesome Ed Pink, Lou Baney car.
Prudhomme just rolled out his restored 'Hot Wheels' car hauler, it looked beautiful.
Maybe try current cars with carbs ? Normally aspirated 1/4 mile FE's have never been faster, so good luck with your venture.

I'm a '67 Fairlane FE guy myself,
the cars coming to our Fall event
are more interested in current cars
with 1-2 carb's.
I like Neighbors car with the injectors
as a A/FX NSS.
What is ya'lls opinion on the injection.???
A blower car current ???
I need opinions...
I can wait till after Mega-Ford.
Thanks for time and replys,
I have recieved great info on this subject.
My FE shirt for our Fall get togather will be
covered with FE Power.......
I don't care if I can get 600 racers, ETs and Mph.
I have to break up into 3-4 classes..
But theres only ONE FIRST SHIRT and this one will be it.
I say the more FE's...the better !!!!!!
Keep sending me info...
