Hanging with Dyno Don Nicholson and Art Carr


Back in 1998, I was on staff at HOT ROD magazine and got the OK to build an altered wheelbase Match Bash car. We got Dyno Don Nicholson (back to camera) and legendary transmission wizard Art Carr (right) to be part of a shoot for HOT ROD MAGAZINE TV. To me, these guys are legends of the Match Race days of the Sixties. Art is still with us, but sadly Dyno passed in 2006. I was honored to be part of a special remembrance ceremony at the NHRA Museum in Pomona after his passing.
