Hey Andy— great story on Ray Brock and 405 H clone . I remember that like it was yesterday . I had a 392 in 57 dodge D500 coupe with Packard OD stick , 3:70 . 1962 .( my mini 300!) Best car I ever beat was a 421 Pontiac Ventura tri Power coupe 4 speed ( well — guy was not the best driver but I won) . State cop got both of us , pulled over , racing . I was in front , cuz I won. He gives Pontiac a ticket . (600 then) Comes to me “ what you have in this thing? “392 hemi ; “ Goes pretty good . —Think it would beat my cruiser?” (406 Ford) . We both start laughing . He says “ Have a great night ,I hate Pontiacs” — lets me go!!Later a good friend , waved at me . Cops like that are no more...thanks again for publishing that. 12.88 in a full size Chrysler ? Would have won whole thing except asleep on the line !What 454 chev? 409 ? Forget it

The latest News-Flite found its way into my snail mailbox today. This event always prompts me to get serious about the next issue. So, we're looking for some 300-F stories. A couple contributions have trickled in already and we're forward looking to a story from Nick, "Mr.. 300f.com" himself, but we need more to fill the 40-page Club News you have become accustomed to.
Had your 300 to any events lately? Send us a photo. I received a great shot of three 300-Fs together at a recent area show.
