I won F1-E/HR in the 1968 AHRA Spring Nationals with a 327 CI SB Chevy engine (13.32 ET) but was eliminated in the first round. My cousin, Mark Taliaferro, eliminated me in the first round in his '55 Chevy "El Toro" with a 327 CI engine. A '65 Dodge 426 Max-Wedge was F1 Hot Rod class eliminator (11.30 ET) .

My 3900 lb. '59 Impala was equipped with a 327 engine, 30-30 camshaft, new "291" double hump heads ported by Joe Modello, 3-2 barrel Rochester carburetors from a '66 GTO, Tri-Y headers, Bruce slicks, a B-W "slick-shifted" 4-speed and a 4.56 Posi-traction rear gear.
