This is some great video taken about 6 years ago.
Don Prudhomme does a push start in the restored Greer,Black& Prudhomme dragster.

Some of his old compadres show up to give him some help.
Roland Leong & Tom Mcewen roll up in a golf cart & double check stuff before Don goes for a ride.
Mcewen is making sure the fuel shutoff on the injectors is working.
In other scenes he is there in the cart keeping a watchful eye on his buddy Don.

The Yeakel Plymouth Special

Original car was located in Hawaii and the Rossi & Baney families(they originally ran the car with McEwen doing the driving in '64,'65&'66) and restored it in 2010 . The car now appears at nostalgia cackle shows.
